    Some conservatives losing love for Bush (and getting fired for it)

    From American Progress:

    "In the latest sign of the deepening split among conservatives over how far to go in challenging President Bush," conservative commentator Bruce Bartlett was dismissed yesterday as a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA), a prominent conservative research group based in Dallas. Bartlett is a former White House aide under President Reagan and the first President Bush, and had been with the Center for 10 years. The dismissal came after Bartlett supplied NCPA president John C. Goodman with the manuscript of his forthcoming book, "The Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy." In his next column, to be published on Wednesday, "Mr. Bartlett wrote that it is dawning on many conservatives 'that George W. Bush is not one of them and never has been,'" the New York Times reports.

    Not one of them? I'd have said he was pretty typical of a republican. Perhaps he's just too damn plain honest about his aims...a real republican is dishonest.
