RIP Philo

I'm a Democrat! No, wait a Republican! No, actually I'm a Dem...

"A top strategist for the Texas Democrats who was disappointed by the Bill Clinton years, Mr. Dowd was impressed by the pledge of Mr. Bush, then governor of Texas, to bring a spirit of cooperation to Washington. He switched parties, joined Mr. Bush’s political brain trust and dedicated the next six years to getting him to the Oval Office and keeping him there. In 2004, he was appointed the president’s chief campaign strategist.

Looking back, Mr. Dowd now says his faith in Mr. Bush was misplaced."

I read this as "Having cashed in on the Clinton years, Mr. Dowd switched horses and cashed in on the Bush years, now with Democrats in control of congress and Bush poll numbers at record lows, Mr. Dowd is swtiching again."

Most of congress did this to an extent. They voted for the war, and now they are against it.

It could be politics or it could just be disenchantment. Switching from Clinton to Bush is not a big change - both of them work for the same people and represent the same agenda, so it's no big deal.

>both of them work for the same people

Who?  I thought Clinton worked for the teachers unions and big labor where as Bush worked for oil companies and defense contractors.

both of them are pro-war, pro-corporation, pro-internationalism, and against unions and the working class, except when fucking them literally or metaphorically.

Maybe it's just me, but I think flipflopping ain't such a bad thing at all.

At least it shows you're thinking about *something*.
