The new 2009 edition [of Freedom House's report] paints a sombre picture of how the world fared during George Bush’s time in office. An initial five years of improvement were followed by a three-year decline—less in 2008 than previously, but still disappointing.
Another GWB FAIL. And in the place where he claims to be proudest. How special. Clinton managed to oversee a significant growth in democracy. Not so for former President Bush.
