OBLIGATORY NAZI REFERENCE:

The Rise of Chinese Cheneys (NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF, 1/19/11, NY Times)

My take is that China is going through a period resembling the Bush era in the United States: hawks and hard-liners have gained ground in domestic politics...

Even by the standards of the Times editorial page, the comparison of the aughts in America to the PRC is inane. Consider that the two major initiatives of W that were thwarted would have returned control of public retirement to individuals and would have institutionalized open immigration.
