Randy Stapilus, long-time observer of Idaho politics, posted this comment re: Your Huckleberry Hound Tuesday:
There was a time not so long ago that Dave Oliveria, the Spokesman-Review‘s columnist/blogger for northern Idaho, was clearly sympathetic with the area’s ascendant Republican politicians. He’s a self-described himself conservative, as in one interview where he recalled, “In 2004, we had the presidential election and I was probably one of the few in the newsroom who supported Bush. I wanted an outlet. I wanted to provide a conservative voice online to counter some of the liberal voices.” I mention this by way of setting up the bonafides when Oliveria, as he has done increasingly in recent years, takes on the local Republicans. More here.
Question: Do you think George W. Bush would have been conservative enough to win the 2012 Kootenai County GOP caucus?
