George W. Bush and America

While so many people are being optimistic about Obama as president (and I hope they are right), I will make one comment of my own on his predecessor.

Back on January 1oth Brad DeLong asked:

"Why is this family[the Bushes] ruling us, again?"

And I replied:

Providing that civilization survives, this will be a classic topic for historians of the United States and historians of the development of democracy, for centuries to come.

I don't think too many of the answers will be as comforting as "the election was stolen." You hope in vain if you think they will let the United States off that easily.

That is all.
