Good advice

Forbes editor, Rich Karlgaard offers good advice about the criticism directed at W from conservative economist Bruce Bartlett. First, Bartlett's financial interests are directly aligned with bashing Bush. Second, his criticism fails to acknowledge any of the enormous good which has resulted from the Bush tax cuts.

Bottom line -- when the criticism is clearly unbalanced and the critic has a strong financial interest in selling the criticism, take what the critic says with a very large grain of salt -- say a lump.
