“I think Bush’s hero would be bemused, to say the least, by the president’s wrapping himself in the Churchillian cloak. Indeed, the more you understand the historical record, the more the parallels leap out — but they’re between Bush and Chamberlain, not Bush and Churchill.”
“Olson … puts forth the absurd proposition that President Bush more closely resembles Neville Chamberlain than Winston Churchill. Steven Hayward correctly observes that Olson’s piece is too “dismal” to warrant a point-by-point rebuttal. For example, Olson makes no mention of that which, more than anything else, Chamberlain is remembered for — his underestimation and appeasement of an expansionist dictator.”
