To quote Megaforce*: It All Comes Around.
Yeah, I know, but Peggy Noonan’s not bad when she’s being nostalgic, and she has a point here:
Coverage of the opening of [George W. Bush's] presidential library Thursday was wall to wall on cable, and a feeling of affection for him was encouraged, or at least enabled, by the Washington press corps, which doesn’t much like Mr. Obama because he’s not all that likable, and remembers Mr. Bush with a kind of reluctant fondness because he was.
But to the point. Mr. Obama was elected because he wasn’t Bush.
Mr. Bush is popular now because he’s not Obama.
The wheel turns, doesn’t it?
