Europe and Bush

A bit of sarcasm from Greek blogger, Dystropoppygus, on Bush's recent trip to Europe spurred by Dominic Hilton's article about Fashionable anti-Americanism. I wonder what he would make of Dominic's recent interview with Timothy Garton-Ash?

Timothy Garton Ash:

"I hope that I’m some way ahead of George W Bush, who is still described as the leader of “the” free world, and who would still feel that the notion of “the” free world has some validity. European liberals like myself should not deny our own goals just because President Bush embraces them. I quote in the book an Arab scholar saying, “We should improve our education system, even though the Americans encourage us to.” We should be for these goals because they are the right goals, even though President Bush embraces them."
