Hart: Bush Isn’t a Conservative

Professor of English emeritus Jeffery Hart has just published an opinion piece that begins simply, “George W. Bush is not a conservative…” Hart then goes on to compare Bush’s foreign policy with that of Woodrow Wilson, who Hart rightly claims is hardly an example of conservatism.

This criticism should not be taken lightly as Professor Hart has served as an arbiter of modern American conservative thought and has many accolades to support that claim. Even Buckley has seemed luke warm on the War on Iraq and with Hart’s latest piece it is becoming clear that this war is supported and defended by neo-conservatives.

To once more quote Professor Hart, “George W. Bush is conservative, but he is not a conservative.”
