It's become that obvious. This quote isn't from the Nation or Counterpunch, but from American Conservative magazine:
"(Bush) rushed America into a war against Iraq, a war we are now losing and cannot win, one that has done far more to strengthen Islamist terrorists than anything they could possibly have done for themselves. ... The war will continue as long as Bush is in office, for no other reason than the feckless president can't face the embarrassment of admitting defeat. The chain of events is not complete: Bush, having learned little from his mistakes, may yet seek to embroil America in new wars against Iran and Syria."
Of course, they also despise him for being soft on illegal immigrants. I'll take it, as long as we all agree that the solution is to dump the GOP.
