Goldwater vs Bush

A reader writes:

I saw your interview with Brian Lamb on C-Span last night. I think if Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan were alive to have seen it, they would have been cheering you on. They would have been saying, he has got it. He understands us, in contrast to President Bush who does not. In fact, they would be saying George Bush is not even close to understanding what it means to have a Conservative Soul.

There are more anti-Bush conservatives out there than you'd think. At least judging from my email in-tray.
