Again and again for the past ten months or so, I have written columns and blog posts saying that if conservatives are actually adults, we will not write off President Bush but instead find those issues where he has indeed held the conservative line and, on those issues, rally around the president and try to help him make his presidency successful. I have also said that this presidency is not dead yet, that it can still be a success. Now the eminent Bill Kristol has written much the same thing, more concisely than I ever did. Kristol has never hidden his disagreements with Bush. At times he has been pretty scathing. His defense of Bush, therefore, merits even more attention. I believe Kristol is right.
