McClatchy’s Washington bureau has run the numbers on the compassionate conservative. As you will see by the highlighted text below, those numbers prove, in spades, what the late (and lamented since 2000) Richard Nixon once said: “We are all Keynesians now.” Of course Nixon knew what a Keynesian was.

“[Bush] has presided over massive increases in almost every category … a dramatic change of pace from most previous presidents,” said Slivinski.

The White House counters by noting that Bush took office as the country was heading into a recession, then reeled from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
