William F. Buckley, Jr., is a powerful thinker. He has always been a powerful and persuasive writer. Somewhere around here, I still have a copy of God and Man at Yale.
He’s thinking about George W. Bush:
“Mr. Bush is in the hands of a fortune that will be unremitting on the point of Iraq,” Buckley said in an interview that will air on Bloomberg Television this weekend. “If he’d invented the Bill of Rights it wouldn’t get him out of his jam.”
Buckley said he doesn’t have a formula for getting out of Iraq, though he said “it’s important that we acknowledge in the inner councils of state that it (the war) has failed, so that we should look for opportunities to cope with that failure.”
Conservatives are deserting the current Federal Administration, for it is not conservative, it is radical.
