Why does Bush love Iran so much?

Joe Conason lays it down:

From the botched Iraq war to threatening Iran with "regime change," neoconservative policies have been a boon for Tehran.

If the neoconservatives were not so adept at claiming the patriotic high ground for themselves -- and convincing the nation that they are interested only in advancing the security of America and Israel and the cause of democracy -- it might be time to start asking which of them are actually agents of Iran. The question is pertinent because "objectively," as they like to say, neoconservative policy has resulted in enormous profit to the Iranian mullahs, at grave cost to the United States and with little or no benefit to Israel.

Given our leadership, this story would be funny if it was not so freaking spot on.

WASHINGTON, DC— In a nationally televised address Monday, President Bush urged all citizens, regardless of race, creed, color, or political affiliation, "to quiet down for just one minute" so he could have "a chance to think."

I'd just like to remind everyone that Michael "Rubber Stamp" Castle thinks Bush is doing a great job.

I read a commentary this weekend reflecting a similar POV on how much this effort is helping Iran.
With the lift in oil prices, they are richer right along with US Big Oil.
If US wanted to weaken this link, we'd focus on conservation, on enforcemnt of high mileage transportation and tax incentives etc for development and use of alternative power sources.
Bush killed the democratic movement in Iran with his "axis of evil" speech and it has been downhill from there.
