Because of the sharp increase in government spending
that we have seen under Bush and the Republican Congress, many accuse them of spending like drunken sailors. However as Worldnetdaily editor Joseph Farah points out in a column
about how Bush have betrayed conservative values on nearly all issues and why he therefore regrets voting for Bush, that comparison is unfair. Unfair to the drunken sailors, that is. To quote Farah:"Bush has encouraged the Republican Congress to spend like drunken sailors. Actually, that is an insult to drunken sailors, who only spend their own money – not their grandchildren's and great-grandchildren's money."
