The Guardian: Donald Trump’s victory should make us appreciate George W Bush

The Guardian: Donald Trump’s victory should make us appreciate George W Bush

by Martin Kettle

Nevertheless, it is useful to remember that Bush had genuine gifts as a political leader too. He reached out to minorities, in particular to Hispanics. And he spoke for a reasonably well-thought-out vision of compassionate conservatism that was in marked contrast to the slash-and-burn anti-government obsession of the Newt Gingrich era.

George W Bush deserves a lot more admiration.
