Brooks preferred Bush/Cheney over McCain and he preferred Guilliani (and Romney as well) over McCain. But he prefers McCain over any Democrat.

So Brooks does a little dance, distancing McCain from the very unpopular Bush/Cheney policies.

Brooks is pragmatic and calculating. He knows that it helps your credibility not to withhold criticism for failed policies.

But, if he can focus that criticism on the failed execution of the policies then the policies themselves can remain unchallenged.


You can go back and find many instances where Brooks endorsed or justified the very things that Brooks now praises McCain for criticizing.
