Back to the Future (again)

Josh Marshall points out that Bush, once again, is warning that future historians might view America circa 2006 in an unfavorable light if his policies aren't supported wholeheartedly.

Josh correctly notes that there is practically no chance that Bush's prediction will come true. DB would just add the reminder that this is the same president who famously deflects all accountability by saying that History should be the judge:

"But I read three histories of George Washington last year. The first President of the United States is still being analyzed by historians, which oughtta say to this president and future president: "Do what you think is right and eventually historians will figure out whether it made sense or not." -- George W. Bush, Aug. 29, 2006

Bush plays this game all the time.
