Andrew Roberts, a British columnist/historian, gives his big-picture assessment of the Bush legacy, and has no time for journalism's thought process, which starts from its own created myth about Bush's incompetence.
"Films such as Oliver Stone's W, which portray him as a spitting, oafish frat boy who eats with his mouth open and is rude to servants, will be revealed by the diaries and correspondence of those around him to be absurd travesties, of this charming, interesting, beautifully mannered history buff who, were he not the most powerful man in the world, would be a fine person to have as a pal."Roberts, an author, takes the reader winsomely through the real record, point-by-point and encourages us to step back a little to see what no one wants you to see.
