“Bush Moves Might Be Too Little, Too Late”

So says GOP pollster Lance Tarrance:

The recent White House shake-up was an attempt to jump-start the administration and boost President Bush's rock-bottom approval ratings, but have those efforts come too late to salvage the presidency? A prominent GOP pollster thinks that may be the case.

"This administration may be over," Lance Tarrance, a chief architect of the Republicans' 1960s and '70s Southern strategy, told a gathering of journalists and political wonks last week. "By and large, if you want to be tough about it, the relevancy of this administration on policy may be over."
Gee, ya think? Who would have guessed that picking a couple of dung beetles off a steaming pile of shit doesn’t suddenly make it smell like roses.

Meanwhile, Glenn Greenwald takes on conservative efforts to attribute Bush’s complete and total failure to his being a liberal, which is the new attempt to turn movement conservatism into a phoenix rising from the ashes of its fiery crash-and-burn, after tagging Bush as a right-wing ideologue failed to catch on.
