As we await the state of the union address–which I suspect hardly anyone will watch–I’m struck by how EVERYONE, including conservatives, and including people who used to defend him, are piling on President Bush. Peggy Noonan, for instance, is saying that it wouldn’t be Huckabee or McCain whose nomination would destroy the Republican party, as Rush Limbaugh says; rather, President Bush has ALREADY destroyed it. Meanwhile, a liberal group is raising money to make sure that his approval ratings do not go up before he leaves office! Why spend money to trash someone who is already leaving office?Bill Kristol, though, defends the president and his reputation. What do you think?
