George W. Bush

Don’t worry, hearing President Bush utter phrases like “social justice” last week doesn’t mean the apocalypse is near. As Bush tours Latin America, he’s acquiring a more left-leaning rhetoric in order to keep what few friends he has down there. In a continent that leans more left by the day, it’s no surprise that Bush has been met with angry protests. The trip signals that Bush might be getting around to that pesky 2000 campaign promise to take Latin America seriously – tossing a few Spanish words into speeches doesn’t count. But given Bush’s track record abroad, perhaps it’s better to be ignored.
