George W. Bush Doesn't Deserve the Media's Efforts at Rehabilitation

• http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org, by James Bovard

Bush is being exalted as if he is the second coming of George Washington thanks to his implied slams against the Trump administration. But Bush's actions during his eight year reign did far more to ravage democracy at home and abroad than most people realize.

Thanks to gushing media coverage, Bush is enjoying one of the greatest comebacks in modern American history. In the summer of 2008, only 22 percent of Americans approved of Bush and 41 percent said he was the "worst president ever." Last month, a poll showed that 61 percent of Americans now approve of Bush, and his support among Democrats quintupled, from 11 percent in early 2009 to 54 percent now. If Americans want to understand current political challenges, they need to recall Bush's forgotten debacles.
