    People like George W Bush probably shouldn't talk about things they know nothing about when you have a history buff like Pat Buchanan around.

    Bush's New 'Axis of Evil' - HUMAN EVENTS

    Bush's New 'Axis of Evil'
    by Patrick J. Buchanan
    02/11/2011

    George W. Bush must have been the despair of the history department of every school his daddy managed to get him into.

    Consider his latest excursion into the history of the republic, at Southern Methodist, where the Great Man's papers are to be housed.

    "What's interesting about our country, if you study history, is that there are some 'isms' that occasionally pop up. One is isolationism and its evil twin protectionism and its evil triplet nativism. So if you study the '20s, for example, there was an American-first policy that said, 'Who cares what happens in Europe?' ... And there was an immigration policy that I think during this period argued we had too many Jews and too many Italians, therefore we should have no immigrants. And my point is that we've been through this kind of period of isolationism, protectionism and nativism. I'm a little concerned that we may be going through the same period. I hope that these 'isms' pass."

    Where to begin?............... Bush's New 'Axis of Evil' - HUMAN EVENTS

    I think everyone is pretty much over Bush. Well, most of us anyway.

    Why would anyone care about what Pat Buchanan says about George W. Bush in 2011?

    So many false dichotomies and purposefully inaccurate characterizations, such little time.

    Because George W Bush is speaking in 2011 at Southern Methodist and misrepresenting American history in relation to current events. You are aware that there are still many people out there who miss him and trust whatever he says aren't you? Do you really want people believing what he is saying. Love him or hate him, Buchanan has the ability to see the big picture and his historical knowledge and how the pieces fit together is unmatched. We are much better of with old school paleocons that the neocons who manufacture their own inaccurate reality.
