Oh, The Humanity!

Wacko-wing bloggers are pissed at Chimpy for his expression of remorse over “Bring ’em on!”

Michelle Malkin was one very predictable source of indignation about this, and she played to type. Her post on the comments is titled “Bush Goes Mushy.” In it, she quips, “He’s putting the lame in lame duck.”

Similarly indignant, if more strident, was Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs. Geller called Bush’s interview “pathetic,” wrote, “Memo to Bush: STFU” (her emphasis) and said, “Bush regrets his legacy as a ‘man who wanted war?’ … It was not your legacy, it was al qaeda and company’s legacy. Not aggressively defending ourselves is a moral depravity. Apologizing for defending this great nation is morally bankrupt.” […]

And the bloggers at Powerline, who’ve previously gone a wee bit over the top in their admiration for Bush, were up in arms. The site’s John Hinderaker referenced a comment he says former Sen. Rick Santorum made to him about the Bush administration having “battered President syndrome” and said, “Bush appears to have more or less internalized the criticisms that his enemies have lodged over the years … Bush [repeated] one of the sillier attacks the left has launched on his Presidency.” One of Hinderaker’s co-bloggers, Paul Mirengoff, concurred, writing, “Bush seems determined to drive his approval rating down to roughly zero percent.”

    Geez–for once in my life I can appreciate the scribbings of a Powerline wingnut…
