“This Is As Close As We’ve Ever Come To A Dictatorship”
Barbara Boxer said that on the Ed Schultz show, and Ed didn’t blink, or ask a follow-up.
This contrasts with Joe Lieberman’s view of President Bush, expressed on my program earlier today:
HH: Last question, how do you think history’s going to evaluate George W. Bush?
JL: Well, I personally believe look, mistakes were made, and I know the polls are down, but I think on the largest issue of our time, which is the rise of Islamist extremism, that he will be judged as a president who saw the threat, and in the midst of an unpopular war, he stuck with it. And so I think overall, over time, his ratings among the historians will be greater than his ratings in the polls today.
