The End of the Bush Revolution

Gordon, Philip H.
July 2006
Foreign Affairs;Jul/Aug2006, Vol. 85 Issue 4, p75
The article discusses United States President George W. Bush and his efforts to pursue the war on terror and spread democracy and freedom around the world. While the Bush administration claims that the war on terror will be pursued for years to come, low public approval ratings are forcing the president to change his policy and reverse the "Bush revolution." Overreaching during the Iraq War, the alienation of allies like Canada and Britain, and the prioritization of the war on terror have resulted in less international political legitimacy, huge debt, and a lack of domestic resources and support.
