worst … president … ever!

Gary North treats the word ‘liberal’ with great disrespect and the word ‘conservative’ with plenty of respect — as if the mid-20th-century use of those terms was timeless.

He insists that George Dubya Bush is not really a conservative, but he has no problem calling the 1930s admirers of German and Italian fascism “liberals” without modifier or qualification.

Other than this one very annoying pattern (and he does make up for it somewhat by showing respect for the term ‘libertarian’), his analysis of how the history books treat presidents in general, and how they will treat George Bush Junior specifically, is really wonderful:

“Why Bush Will Become the Textbooks’ Worst President”
