George W. Bush and Dick Cheney—Liberal Darlings?
Political expert William S. Bike examines the reputation rehabilitation of former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney
"The media and historians often take a contrarian second look at officials years after they have left office and, since these officials no longer are in the white-hot glare of day-to-day politics, decide that the common opinion about those officials was not necessarily the correct one," said Bike, who is the author of a how-to book on all aspects of political campaigning, Winning Political Campaigns.
In the article, Bike compares historians' and the media's rehabilitation of their images to that of Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Jimmy Carter, and analyzes why events of 2020 are placing Bush and Cheney in a more favorable light.
