Same Old Party

By Paul Krugman

“There have been a number of articles recently that portray President Bush as someone who strayed from the path of true conservatism. Republicans, these articles say, need to return to their roots.

“Well, I don’t know what true conservatism is, but…Mr. Bush hasn’t strayed from the path at all. On the contrary, he’s the very model of a modern movement conservative.

[. . .]

“Now, as they survey the wreckage of their cause, conservatives may ask themselves: “Well, how did we get here?” They may tell themselves: “This is not my beautiful Right.” They may ask themselves: “My God, what have we done?”

“But their movement is the same as it ever was. And Mr. Bush is movement conservatism’s true, loyal heir.”
