George Bush the Terrorist

MUCH as George W. Bush’s presidency was ineluctably shaped by Sept. 11, 2001, so the outbreak of the French Revolution was symbolized by the events of one fateful day, July 14, 1789. And though 18th-century France may seem impossibly distant to contemporary Americans, future historians examining Mr. Bush’s presidency within the longer sweep of political and intellectual history may find the French Revolution useful in understanding his curious brand of 21st- century conservatism.
Its freightening how much history repeats itself. Unfortunately I doubt the United States will learn from its horrific mistake that began on January 20, 2001. Look at how almost all of the Repignofascist candidates for president (with the exception of Ron Paul) are trying their best to be cast as George II.
