The Last Gasp (II)

Via TAC, I see that “Newsbusters” – a putatively conservative organization – has published a “response” to a favorable Washington Post book review of Professor Bacevich’s The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism. I use quotation marks because I’m unsure if the author actually makes any arguments – fortunately, Clark Stooksbury says all that needs to be said on the subject.

The author’s evident inability to grasp the very idea of a conservative critique of Bush’s absurd foreign policy continues to astonish. In his mind, criticizing the President is tantamount to allying oneself with CodePink (If pressed, I could imagine worse bedfellows). As I’ve written earlier, until the conservative movement comes to grips with Bush’s ideological failures, it can’t hope to permanently revive its flagging political fortunes. Needless to say, this sort of thing isn’t helping.
