Fred Barnes Argues Bush Will Go Down as Best President Since Lincoln
Reported by Marie Therese - July 26, 2007 -
George Bush's polling numbers are sinking faster than a stone. Despite this, he still has his staunch, if somewhat deluded, defenders. Yesterday during a discussion on the topic of newly released poll numbers that show Bush to be closing in on Richard Nixon's poll numbers at the nadir of the Watergate scandal, conservative editor and commentator Fred Barnes proved once again that the state of denial is alive and well in the Republican Party. Barnes desperately tried to paint a happy face on the dismal news, comparing the Bush Presidency to that of Abraham Lincoln and claiming that history will show that Bush the Lesser set the stage for the eventual destruction of global terrorism.
