Julian Zelizer, a history professor and the editor of a book about President Bush, explains to readers of the Washington Post why five commonly held views of Bush and his presidency are wrong. The myths are: (1) George W. Bush was an uninformed Texas cowboy, (2) “compassionate conservatism” was just a campaign slogan, (3) Bush committed America to nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan, (4) Dick Cheney ran the Bush White House, and (5) Bush left conservatism in ruins.
Readers of Power Line have seen these myths attacked frequently on this site, though not always from the same perspective, or with the same arguments, that Prof. Zilizer offers.
