Bruce Bartlett has written a new book, Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy. You can already pre-order it from Amazon, although it won't be out until the end of February. Who is Bruce Bartlett? He's a senior fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis, a conservative think tank in Dallas, Texas. Actually, he was a senior fellow at the NCPA. They fired him because they didn't want to be associated with his new book.

The true conservatives in this country are coming out and doing what true conservatives are supposed to do: criticize people who engage in reckless policies like runaway deficit spending coupled with massive tax cuts. George W. Bush is no more a true conservative than I am; indeed, I think he is less so, even as he is less of a true Christian than I am.

A conservative commentator in Dallas, Texas, using words like "betrayed" to describe George W. Bush; what is this world coming to? Its senses?
