Instapundit considers former President George W. Bush, who has expressed his disdain for modern Republicans, and responds thusly:

In retrospect, it seems that Bush didn’t mind the contempt with which lefties treated him, because he knew the contempt was really aimed at his voters, for whom he apparently had contempt too.

As President, W was a serious disappointment to most Republicans. He could be counted on not to do many bad things, but in 8 years he didn’t do many good ones either. Which made him an inconsequential president, a placeholder.
