Conservative crackup

Howard Fineman has an article on the Newsweek website describing members of the Republican party unhooking their wagons from the President.
WASHINGTON - President George W. Bush may have no military exit strategy for Iraq, but the “neocons” who convinced him to go to war there have developed one of their own — a political one: Blame the Administration.

Their neo-Wilsonian theory is correct, they insist, but the execution was botched by a Bush team that has turned out to be incompetent, crony-filled, corrupt, unimaginative and weak over a wide range of issues.

The flight of the neocons — just read a recent Weekly Standard to see what I am talking about — is one of only many indications that the long-predicted “conservative crackup” is at hand.
Fineman's prediction may be too soon, but his breakdown of the various factions that make up the Republican party is clear and concise.
