Kristol Clear

I’ve seen a lot of Bush apologists in the past several years, but this beats all.

William Kristol, the conservative publisher of The Weekly Standard, said of Mr. Bush: "I do think people think he could have showed stronger leadership." But Mr. Kristol expressed doubt that the hurricane would have much lasting effect on the president’s personal and political fortunes, because "people are capable of saying, ‘The president kind of screwed this one up, but I still basically agree with him.’"

Mr. Kristol added, "I think the Clinton administration would have done a better job in handling Hurricane Katrina, but I’m also glad Bush is president and not a Democrat."

Clinton would have done better and handling Katrina which Bush screwed up, but Bush is better because he’s better.  That’s blind partisanship if I ever saw it.
