William Kristol’s Grand “Refudiation”

What’s that word?  Whose he kidding?  Kristol was head cheerleader for the Bush adminstration’s “refudication” of the classical liberal tradition of limited government, a modest foreign policy, and avoidance of social engineering.  Obama simply continued what Bush started, and Kristol was an instigator for it.  That is not to say Bush and his cronies didn’t want to throw off the shackles limited government places on politicians.  Remember No Child Left Behind, prescription drugs, invade Iraq and Afghanistan, Bush’s speech when he first ran for president in which he announced he didn’t want to “balance the budget on the backs of the poor”, however you do that? Here.
