But the important aspect of these (petty, partisan) attacks is that, in coordination with left-wing Democrats, including former President Clinton, the media have created a maniacal Bush-bashing aimed at having America lose the war, and with it our traditional ability to guide the world toward a better future. Fortunately, history isn’t written by typically impatient, unwise and biased journalists. If history is a guide, their opinions are nearly perfect contrary indicators of eventual reality.
