Bush Nostalgia: Give Me a F#@king Break

So, Jennifer Rubin's latest for the Washington Post is: "George W. Bush Reminds Us How Decent Leaders Sound."

As you might imagine, I had a few thoughts on that: "George W. Bush Was Not a Decent Leader."

Once again, I am left contemplating how fundamentally unprepared, willingly, the political press is for this moment. If you're greeting Donald Trump's aggressive authoritarianism by waxing nostalgic about George W. Bush, you've got nothing of value to contribute.
