Captain Ed makes a good point:
Why did the conservatives hold their tongues for so long? They focused on party unity for three reasons: (1) Bush fought Islamist terrorism with ferocity and tenacity, refusing to budge from his plan despite widespread derision from his political opponents and from much of the world; (2) Bush cut taxes and made sure they stayed cut; (3) Bush's nominations to the federal bench were mostly brave and bold choices which raised expectations for blockbuster Supreme Court nominations to come.
