Abstract

More than seven years after he left office, George W. Bush is back in the news after being attacked by Donald trump over his responsibility for the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the 2003 Iraq War. Peter Harris writes that Trump’s attacks follow a rehabilitation of sorts of George W. Bush’s reputation – at least among Republicans. He argues that the fight over Bush’s legacy is a microcosm of the broader struggle now taking place within the Republican Party which pits moderates – who are embracing Bush’s legacy – and anti-establishment Republicans like Trump who want to move on from what they see as the failed politics of the past.
