Political musings from Warren E. Peterson

George W. Bush Revisited

Posted by Warren Peterson on September 27, 2011

The Autumn 2011 issue of the “American Scholar”, a publication of Phi Beta Kappa, contains an article written by former Washington Post writer and current journalism professor Walt Harrington about his relationship with George W. Bush from the time of his father’s presidency through his own eight years in office. No conservative, Professor Harrington notes he did not vote for Bush but is nonetheless able to get by the vitriol of contemporary politics and write a fascinating article on W’s transition from a frat boy image to leader of the free world.

Love him or hate him, anyone seeking to understand history should read it.
