The American Conservative Union doesn't ♥ Bush

This is REALLY bad. Yet hysterically funny at the same time.

From David Keane, chairman of the American Conservative Union

What is most troubling about this whole affair, however, is the way the administration has gone about trying to demonize conservatives who have raised questions about Ms. Miers. It began from day one to attack personally the motives, loyalty and judgment of anyone who questioned the wisdom of the nomination. Since then, the ad hominem attacks on Miers’s conservative critics have been unconscionably heavy-handed and will haunt the president regardless of how the nomination fight turns out.

Most conservatives have stood with Bush from the beginning. Those of us who know him like him. We’ve swallowed policies we might otherwise have objected to because we’ve believed that he and those around him are themselves conservatives trying to do the right thing against sometimes terrible odds. We’ve been there for him because we’ve considered ourselves part of his team.

No more.

From now on, this administration will find it difficult to muster support on the right without explaining why it should be forthcoming. The days of the blank check have ended because no thinking conservative really wants to be part of a team that requires marching in lock step without question or thought, even if it is headed by the president of the United States.
I'm sorry, but you guys put an idiot in office, you knew he was an idiot, and now that idiot is making idiotic decisions and you don't like it. In fact, that idiot has been making a mess of things for five years and you just finally clued in. Well, too bad. You voted for it, you buy it.
