Excuses of the Right

Glenn Reynolds of
The press had better hope we win this war, because if we don't, a lot of people will blame the media.
Unhinged Conservatives like Glenn Reynolds will continue to blame others like the media, Democrats, liberals or anyone who dares to speak against their Dear Leader, President Bush for Republicans failures over the years.
Those who insisted on this war, who started it, who prosecuted it, who controlled every single facet of its operation – they have no blame at all for the failure of this war. Nope. They were right all along about everything. It all would have worked had war critics just kept their mouths shut. The ones who are to blame are the ones who never believed in this war, who control no aspect of the government, who were unable to influence even a single aspect of the war, who were shunned, mocked and ridiculed, and who have been out of power since the war began. They are the ones to blame. They caused this war to fail.
But, the truth is even some Conservatives like Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol thinks President Bush and his administration is incompetent.
I think it’s become in people’s minds an emblem of the administration that just isn’t as serious about the competent execution of the functions of government as it should be. And even — I’m struck talking to conservatives and Republicans — they agree with the president on basic political philosophy, the they agree with his basic policy agenda, but they are worried that they just don’t seem to be able to execute as well as they should be.
It is too late to point out the obvious, the failures of President Bush and this GOP continue to grow and the American people along with the rest of the world are worst off.
