You're a conservative....until you're not

There's a peculiar meme gaining currency on the right that, in essence, says George Bush is a failure as president because he's not conservative enough. Actually, let's go one step further...he's a liberal! Of course!

From Hullabaloo:

Digby (11/26/05)
Movement conservatives are getting ready to write the history of this era as liberalism once again failing the people. Typically, the conservatives were screwed, as they always are. They must regroup and fight for conservatism, real conservatism, once again. Viva la revolution!

There is no such thing as a bad conservative. "Conservative" is a magic word that applies to those who are in other conservatives' good graces. Until they aren't. At which point they are liberals.

World Net Daily (11/15/06)
Reluctantly, we may finally have to admit that President George W. Bush has governed more like a liberal Democrat than the true moral conservative we all wanted to believe he was. If Richard Viguerie is right, more bad things will continue to happen to the Republican Party as long as conservatives remain unhappy.

I don't think anything else needs to be said.
