Wrong frame.

The problem with celebrating "big government" is that under Bush and Cheney, government got a lot bigger. Moreover "big government" shouldn't be appealing to liberals if we're spending lots of money on stupid things, like say, endless wars/occupations, making insurance companies rich, etc.

Anyway, Republicans have spent 30 years loading "big government" up with negative associations, so that ship has sailed.
