NRO asked writers to name the best and worst of George W. Bush’s presidency. Here’s what I wrote for the symposium:
The best thing about George W. Bush was that he won elections, which is a quality that GOP presidential candidates and their supporters simply can’t take for granted — not at a time when Republican nominees have lost five of the last six popular votes and four of the last six Electoral College votes. The worst thing about him? His name wasn’t Jeb.
