Washington Post Chat

Yesterday, Russ Baker answered questions about the Bush legacy for readers of The Washington Post:

Minneapolis: Hi Russ — Thanks for taking questions today. Maybe it’s just me, but I not only have “Bush fatigue,” I have “Bush goodbye fatigue.” Have we always had these endless valedictories and post-mortems when a president leaves office, or is this a special case?

Russ Baker: Well, how surprising is it, really, that the empty goodbye exercise seems to warrant more energy than digging into the real events of the administration itself? We are a country that loves its spectacles. This is nothing new.

Russ also appeared on Reuters TV for a news segment on the end of Bush’s presidency. You can watch that segment here.
