Disaffection on the Right

Some FreeRepublic threads reflecting rightwing anger and disaffection from the GOP:

  • Congressional porkfest: a pig in a poke
  • Stalwarts Fought Drug Bill Til Dawn
  • "Bush signs campaign finance law" (An Oldie but a Goodie...)
  • Reviewing 2003, Bush Emphasizes Medicare, Not War

    A lot of them are still holding out worship for Dubya, but between lost jobs (a lot of computer folks unemployed among the Freepers), the pork barrel spending by the GOP, and unhappiness over other issues, it's clear that a lot of rightwingers won't be mobilized for the election. Those hard core activists may vote for Bush in the end, but they won't be spending a lot of time converting swing voters.
