Shot: “Bush is taking the long view of both history and the future.”

—Headline, New York’s Glens Falls Post-Star, November 21, 2007.

Chaser: “Obama’s taking the long view of politics.”

—Hot Air’s paraphrased headline yesterday of a Vox.com article from last week.

Honest historians on both sides of the aisle should praise President Bush’s denouement of the liberation of Iraq from Saddam Hussein, considering that Bill Clinton and Al Gore were calling for his ouster in the 1990s, and Messrs. Obama and Biden were praising the outcome of Bush’s efforts in 2010 and 2011, as Glenn has noted on numerous occasions.
