American Spectator managing editor J.P. Freire will moderate a debate Wednesday, sponsored by America’s Future Foundation, on the topic of “The Bush Legacy: Success or Failure?”:
With a small grace period following the September 11th attacks, George W. Bush has been criticized from the right as being one of America’s most disappointing presidents — and worse, not the conservative he has claimed to be. On the other hand, many on the right have also argued that Bush’s presidency is as good as it gets, and the successes outweigh the failures, especially considering the alternatives.I would argue that the worst aspect of the Bush administration (like his father’s administration) is that it has left a lot of people confused as to what “conservative” means. Leaving aside foreign policy entirely — and I suppose the GWOT is going to be the chief topic of debate Wednesday — Bush sowed discord in conversative ranks by pushing measures like No Child Left Behind and amnesty for illegal aliens.
The debate begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Room 369 of the Rayburn House Office Building, booze will be served at 6:30 p.m., and any DC-area Tatorheads wishing to attend should contact Cindy@americasfuture.org (or RSVP at the Facebook page.)
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

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?
