George W. Bush is a very lucky man. Most presidents don’t live to see what their presidencies have done to change the meaning of the office and the functioning of the nation.
Bush merely has to pick up his morning newspaper to see what he has achieved. Everyone, from the British Parliament to the average American citizen, is unwilling to believe a word that a president, backed up by his secretary of State and buttressed by newly declassified intelligence documents, says.
President Bush’s legacy can be summed up in the old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”
