Several thoughts about this Dana Milbank piece. First, it’s at least a little absurd to identify Andrew Sullivan as a “conservative” blogger. He may lean conservative on some things, but he’s more of an eclectic and sneering critic of everybody, right/center/left alike, than he is readily identifiable in any particular philosophical camp except his own camp of one. Second, while I agree with the gist of the criticisms of Bush’s fiscal record and of some of his administration’s other failings, it strikes me that both Sullivan AND Bartlett go way over the top; they paint Bush almost as if he’s flat-out EVIL in all caps rather than as merely flawed. And really, doesn’t Bartlett lose credibility when he says he would vote for Bill Clinton over W???? Methinks a little perspective, and a chill pill, is in order.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
