David Swanson: “Bush’s Third Term? You’re Living It.”

David Swanson: “Bush’s Third Term? You’re Living It.”

September 2, 2009

It sounds like the plot for the latest summer horror movie. Imagine, for a moment, that George W. Bush had been allowed a third term as president, had run and had won or stolen it, and that we were all now living (and dying) through it. With the Democrats in control of Congress but Bush still in the Oval Office, the media would certainly be talking endlessly about a mandate for bipartisanship and the importance of taking into account the concerns of Republicans. Can’t you just picture it? . . . [yet] this dark fantasy of a third Bush term is also an accurate portrait of Obama’s first term to date. — David Swanson at TomDispatch
