As Matt Welch explains in the Reason blog, Bill Kristol, the modern spokesman for neo-conservatism, whose own father was the intellectual origination of neo-conservatism, is warning the Republican Party about the threat of limited government. Says Kristol:
[C]onservatives should think twice before charging into battle against Obama under the banner of "small-government conservatism." It's a banner many Republicans and conservatives have rediscovered since the election and have been waving around energetically. Jeb Bush, now considering a Senate run in 2010, even went so far as to tell Politico last month, "There should not be such a thing as a big-government Republican."
Kristol has had his wishes granted under the Bush Administration. Which of his policies has succeeded?
