In a ceremony draped in patriotic imagery and dominated by moderate and even liberal figures, the Republican Party opened its convention yesterday by promoting President George W Bush as a leader worthy of comparison with Winston Churchill and Ronald Reagan. - report in the Daily Telegraph.
Who are the Republicans and Rudy Giuliani (who is making the comparison) kidding? Comparing George Bush with Winston Churchill is the most ridiculous notion I have ever heard! I can't speak about any comparison with Ronald Reagan, but there is no comparison between Bush and Churchill. You only have to hear Bush's speeches to come to this conclusion.
