David Brooks Lets Us In On A Little Secret: Everyone Hates Bush

We almost missed showing you this little tidbit from last weekend's "The Chris Matthews Show". Matthews asks David Brooks who among the Republican presidential contenders would be considered the rightful heir to the Bush throne and David lets slip what we have all known for a while: Bush isn't that popular, even with his own party:

BROOKS: Bush...you gotta remember though...a lot of Republicans hate Bush. I mean, we look..we talk about the Democrats, how they hate Bush, in private...

MATTHEWS: What do you mean, "hate Bush?"

BROOKS: They think Bush is incompetent and destroying their party.

Look how absolutely gobsmacked Tweety is with this information. For me personally, it just makes me angry. Because what it tells me is that these politicos enabling Bush to dismantle our Constitution don't even have the courage of their own convictions--it's just Party over Country over and over again.

Nitpicker points out that Brooks unintentionally revealed his true feelings about the party with Romney too...Paging Dr. Freud.
