The hoopla over the new George W. Bush Library in Dallas, as well as some gauzy looks back  penned by former aides, shows we are in the middle of “The Great Bush Revisionism.” The former president is being lauded  and congratulated . But for what?
A new examination of Bushism may be helpful because the current scandals in Washington are the symptoms of too much power and too much arrogance.
The Internal Revenue Service did not target the Republican Party, which is considered part of the establishment. It targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups that were viewed as a threat to the establishment.
Americans need to be wary of revisionism at all times. They need to remember clearly how things were.
Recall the 2004 White House Correspondents Dinner. President George W. Bush showed a slide show featuring photos of himself searching for non-existent weapons of mass destruction . The tuxedoed guests saw the president looking under sofas and other places for the missing WMDs. The Washington elite, as well as their Hollywood and Wall Street guests, laughed uproariously.
