Fresh takes on Bush sinking. Plus much else: Tel Aviv. Iraq. Dan Rather Redux. And lots more.

The president should resign for the good of the country. Thank God
he wasn’t able to use his capital. Can you image how much damage he
would have done then???
Okay, so everything is going to hell in a hand basket. Now what?
How far did expounding this pessimism get you?
I waited before I decided to reply to your “Bush is Dead” article
to see what the reaction would be. I kind of figured
would be pilloried by the true conservatives and you were. You
should be. True friends you are not. Like one respondent pointed
out, you have been around doom and gloom politicians a little too
much. Another one pointed out the “conservative” mentality of
cut-and-run when times get rough. Why is it that the worst enemy
most of us true conservatives have are people supposedly on our own
side? I found this to be true in my own past political career. I
spent more time watching my back among some of my “supporters” than
fighting the liberals. Whenever victory was within reach, some
weak-kneed fool would upset things. Now that Bush seems to be on
the ropes, a few of his “loyal supporters” have decided the King is
dead, joining the chorus calling for his head. One quote that
hasn’t been used yet is that famous one by Mark Twain about how his
supposed demise had been highly exaggerated. The same is true about
Bush and his agenda. Let me point out that Bush’s agenda is a
conservative one and will survive his presidency no matter what. He
is not alone in pushing it and there are some very capable
conservatives behind it. Maybe we won’t get it this round but we
will eventually push it through. That is because true conservatives
(like their liberal brethren before them) have long-term plans and
are not swayed by these short-term setbacks. No, neither Bush’s
agenda nor his presidency are dead. We have merely found out who
the true believers are and who to keep an eye on.
