While I would hardly want to defend the Administration's record, this is pretty unfair. Under a democracy, the "test" for whether a policy should be pursued is whether it ultimately garners the support of the people.

The Republican party is a lot more than just the administration. The failure of these policies, while primarily the responsibility of Bush, can be attributed to everyone who has supported them, including the people who voted for Bush last time around.

Sure, they "succeeded" as far as winning the election goes. But by any reasonable measure of the results they have achieved they have been a failure. And by no means did I mean to say that Bush and his administration are the only ones responsible. The culpability is shared by every single one who has supported the policies that have failed.
