Well it's true that a lot of Bush supporters have been criticizing him lately- but not because they are becoming less conservative- but because they think Bush is not conservative enough! - like his attempted appointment of Harriet Carter to the Supreme court when they wanted a proven hard-line conservative- or his large deficit budgets when they want more cuts in social programs- and ofcourse the Dubai ports deal- conservatives though he was totally off his rocker on that!
Nor do I see any liberalization on the social front- the Supreme Court is more conservative than ever and many liberal causes such as abortion rights are in serious jeopardy. The FCC is really cracking down on TV stations- remember to national panamonium caused by a 2-sec glimpse of Jacket Jackson's nipple? So don't hold your breath for more topfree beaches any time soon.
And as for your minus 40 weather- well right now- I'm sitting here with the door and widows open- the sun is shinning, the birds are singing and it's 82º-F outside. Do you think there is a snowball in hell chance I want to be where you are?
