Check out the article on National Review Online (www.nationalreview.com) by Michael Novak. It explains what it is to be a Bush conservative and that President Bush has advanced conservative ideas and principles. It is not perfect and not necessarily what we would like in all areas, but there are some real achievements.
We conservatives do on many occasions like to ready, fire, aim at ourselves. We are, at times our own worst enemy. This article shows that we should be more supportive and gives concrete examples of what President Bush has done to advance conservatism. We all realize it was not conservative principles that lost congress in 2006. It was greed, incompetence, and people feeling Republicans had been in too long.
Look at the article. Then, you be the judge.
