    But I stand by my critique of conservative "values".

    I agree that many of Bush's liberal critics are only against him because he is in the wrong tribe. Their silence during Clinton's unconstitutional war was quite deafening. But regardless of their motives, I often find myself in agreement with their criticisms of Bush.

    Why? Simple. He's in charge. That means he's responsible. And not because anybody forced it on him; he volunteered for it, nay, begged for it. So it's his. That means I'm not interested in any of his damn excuses or his proxies yammering that "Clinton did it too!" Yeah, Clinton probably did do it too, but Bush is president now.

    For me, many of today's debates are simply echoes of debates that raged in the '90s. The "major" parties have simply switched arguments. I do not find either party to be particularly interested in principles.
