President Bush Ill-Served by Condoleeza Rice

As a "conservatarian" blogger, I will admit to having posted some pretty scorching pieces criticizing President Bush for his foreign policy missteps and weaknesses, and this is only fair, as the "buck stops" on the President's desk.

Nonetheless, one should not discount the room that a trusted, high-ranking official (e.g., SecState) has for creating mischief for the very President she is sworn to serve.

Indeed, as Stephen F. Hayes points out in this Weekly Standard piece, Ms. Rice has made mince-meat of the Bush Administration's dealings with North Korea.

Forsooth, the President has been ill served by his second-term Secretary of State.
