Nevertheless, Eric Alterman, excerpting from one of his books, has a good rundown of the Bushies long-running fuckup of this policy issue. To some extent, pointing fingers is neither here nor there since we can’t just go back in time, but when you have outcomes as bad as the ones these guys are generating, it really is vitally important to note that the country is wrestling with extremely thorny problems that have gotten so thorny overwhelmingly because of George W. Bush’s appallingly poor leadership. Demands will be raised for Democrats to offer up brilliantly appealing solutions, but as on Iraq there are no brilliantly appealing solutions left precisely because the GOp has done such a bad job.
