Best of the Web Today: War on What? -

Best of the Web Today: War on What? - "It's ironic that Shesol brings up the 1988 election in the service of a partisan argument about competence. We'll never know if Dukakis would have been a competent president, but no one much denies that George H.W. Bush was. Indeed, it's probably fair to characterize the common view as follows: The five presidential terms of which Bush's was at the center represented something of a golden age of competence. To put it another way, on the whole America was considerably better governed during the Reagan, Bush and Clinton years than during either the 20 years before or the 13 years since."
