Bush: big government cheerleader when he wants to be

The Washington Post today has a story on how President Bush wants to gain more federal government control over HIV/AIDS funding in the U.S., funding that has previously had state flexibility on its uses. Seems to me, conservatives who hate big government and love state flexibility when it comes to education, block grants, etc., seem to want control when they've got a federal agenda. He wants to provide more doctors' services and treatment instead of social services (ah, prevention doesn't mean shit anyway, does it?), and funnel more $$ to abstinence-only programs and faith-based programs.

How hypocritical of the conservative agenda to want more federal control.
