ALSO KNOWN AS THE FIFTH TERM OF CLINTON/GINGRICH:
Bush's Third Term (JEREMY LOTT, 11.5.12, American Spectator)
And whoever wins tomorrow will govern just like Clinton and W and Blair and Cameron and Harper and Key and Howard...Candidate Barack Obama presented himself as an agent of hope and change, a dramatic break with the failed policies and cynical politics of a tired, retiring president. That is not, to put it mildly, how things have panned out. Once electoral fervor dies down, scholars will surely notice something rather awkward: from a distance, the first term of the Obama administration looks a whole lot like a third term for George W. Bush.
