Last week The Economist newspaper published an excellent survey of George Bush's first term. The article is incisive and critical. While it appears that the Economist board still favors Bush they are very troubled about how things have progressed so far. The editors are particularly concerned about his handling of the Economy, meddling in citizen's private affairs, constant need for secrecy, and audacious manipulation of the truth boarding on bald lies. There are some very positive bits as well but I let you dig them out. It's a very well done and chilling article.
