Bill Kristol removes "Bush apologist" from CV

Frist William F. Buckley, Jr., founder of the National Review, used the conservative magazine's pages to declare that the war in Iraq had been lost by the administration. National Review writer John Derbyshire followed suit, whoever he is.

Now another of the most prominent right-wing pundits, Bill Kristol, (editor of conservative magazine Weekly Standard) is saying that Republicans have had it with this administration:

I think it’s become in people’s minds an emblem of the administration that just isn’t as serious about the competent execution of the functions of government as it should be. And even — I’m struck talking to conservatives and Republicans — they agree with the president on basic political philosophy, the they agree with his basic policy agenda, but they are worried that they just don’t seem to be able to execute as well as they should be.
