Bush's Medvedev

I’m going to coin that phrase now, before someone on the Left does and thinks themselves like the next like Chomsky’r whatever. Also so I can monopolize the buzz surrounding this new, glib replacement for political commentary and point out that it’s an entirely unfair comparison, for what should be obvious reasons, and anyone who would compare the eerie similarity between Bush’s platform and that of the man who he famously battled to Clintonian lows eight years ago is not — intellectually — serious.

That said…one quote is all it takes, peeps:

Mr Bush said his one-time rival would be a president with the “determination to defeat an enemy and a heart big enough to love those who hurt”.
