Bush and truth

On whether President Bush misled conservatives, Mark Steyn makes a point I’ve made repeatedly:

Of course, conservatives have been mad about a lot of Bush policies for a long time—education, immigration—but, in fairness to him, he campaigned as a massive federalizer of the school system and as a big nancy boy pushover for illegal Mexicans. So we can’t complain we were misled….

[T]he “compassionate conservative” thing was, in its implications, far more insulting to the base than the steel tariffs or the proposed illegal immigrant amnesty or the judicial nominees.

However, Steyn, unlike me, thinks that Bush in choosing Harriet Miers did more or less fulfill his pledge to pick a justice like Scalia or Thomas.
