I don’t want to suggest that the New York Times is plagerizing my blogs, I prefer to believe that the “newspaper of record” is just “echoing” my ideas. On Saturday I wrote a blog titled, “Maybe George Was Right” in which I suggested that maybe fomer president GW Bush’s vision of a “democracy on the Tigrus” was a “harbinger” of the end of despotic rule in Arab lands. The Sunday Times Week in Review lead article starts off saying, “Was he (Bush) right after all” and makes the same case. It continues by noting that politics will make it hard for President Obama to follow Bush’s lead unless he can turn promoting democracy into a non-partisan American goal.
Always good to have one’s opinion seconded by someone with weight.
