Mutiny on the Potomac
You know that George Bush is in trouble when the rightwing pundits are beating up on him with the same ferocity as those on the left.
Last week, we had the Godfather of the far-right, William F. Buckley Jr. saying
One can't doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed.
And then adding sarcastically in his latest column that
In four years (during WWII) we marched from Pearl Harbor to the heart of what was left of Tokyo and Berlin. In three years (today) we can't yet take a cab from Baghdad to its airport without an armed guard.
Now we have right-wing pundit emeritus George Will noting that
”all three components of the "axis of evil'' -- Iraq, Iran, North Korea -- (are) more dangerous (now) than they were when that phrase was coined in 2002...”
As if that wasn’t bad enough, right-wing think-tank guru and former Reagan administration policy wonk Bruce Bartlett has penned a book called Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy.
