george sr. on george w.

Back in 1991, I had a huge crush on George Bush. Truly. The papers were awash with anti-Arab propaganda, and even though that year was not great for Arab-Americans, I still thought George Bush was great.
We all change. That’s a fact of life.
But a couple of days ago I was reminded of why I might have liked the man ten years ago. He wouldn’t have handled the Iraq “crisis” like his son. In fact, even he is now warning George W. against unilateral action. If the President can’t even convince his own family that war is the right path, is it any wonder he can’t build consensus with NATO or the UN?
