Bush gets an "A" in history
His response would have merited a high grade in almost any professor's classroom:
GWB: I think raiding a business is more about enforcing the law. And conservatives tend to want to enforce the law. . . . This is an emotional issue. It's interesting. There have been periods in our history where nativism has had a strong appeal. Sometimes nativism, isolationism and protectionism all run hand in hand. We've got to be careful about that in the United States. The 1920s was a period of high tariff, high tax, no immigration. And the lesson of the 1920s ought to be a reminder of what is possible for future presidents.
Where has THIS Bush been all these years?
(I am unsure what he means by it being a period of high taxes. Taxes were famously low in the 1920s. Give him an A-. )
