And I always thought that that (and not Iraq!) was GWBs greatest miscalculation.

OTOH consider that the people supporting Putin are the "traditional" right (paleo-conservatives) such as Pat Buchanan and not the "neocons." The people you refer to as the Republican neocons actually supported Georgia in their conflict with Russia and had urged Bush to institute sanctions against Putin. They also supported putting up a missile defense shield in Poland which people like Buchanan opposed.

Please get your facts straight next time before posting nonsense like "neocon Republican" when referring to Putin...

When did GWB get displaced as the leader of the GOP neocons? Is Rush the new leader of the movement? If not, who? Buchanan? Tell us!

The way that it used to work was GWB did something, regardless of the merit or lack of merit, and it became neocon doctrine. We invaded Iraq to get the WMD, oh, not there....to get rid of Saddam and free the Iraqi people who love Americans, oh, insurgents...we are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here...oh, they are everywhere,...we must fight the war on global terror, forever, yeah, that's the ticket.

…or it takes one to know one.

Of course Putin is a neocon – the incursion into Georgia is right out of the Bush Doctrine playbook.
