ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of conservatism on the failure of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. It explains that movement conservatives set the course of the country over the first six years of the Bush administration with catastrophic results. It asserts that the war in Iraq was driven by the neoconservatives who lobbied for it long before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack or the Bush presidency and resulted to the worst foreign policy fiasco in U.S. history.
