Gee, maybe George Bush was a disaster after all!
The NR sycophants who cheered W’s every crime now realize that he’s a ball and chain. Hilariously, these failed “conservatives” desperately want the Ministry of Truth to work overtime:
“Since most Americans consider Bush a failure, Romney cannot embrace him either. So Bush has been an awkward non-presence in the campaign: the man who was not there. Instead of an explicit repudiation or an embrace, Romney needs to move beyond the controversies of the Bush era.” [Ah — Why do they hate us? Now we know: because Ron Paul made Bush a presence, and calmly exposed his malefactions for all to see.]
A little late, children. Bush’s crimes are not “controversies,” they are realities — but today’s faux conservatives don’t understand metaphysics, they’ve bought into the Trotsky-Kristol-neocon dialectic instead. Nothing is real but power. Hence, Romney must use the Memory Hole, ignore the past, and look to the future.
Uh, doesn’t that have a familiar ring to it? As in, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee?
Yes, they are always wrong. And no, they will never, ever apologize.10:55 am on September 27, 2012 Email Christopher Manion
