Bush's success

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

The recent elections in Lebanon and Iran appear to show the growing strength of the work of former President George W. Bush in the Mideast. Democracy is growing, although Iran needs assistance to break free of tyranny, in a region that many argued is doomed to intolerance, ruling classes and distrust of outsiders. Cracks in this wall are appearing to open the region up.

While the media and Washington pols do not give Mr. Bush credit for this change, can anyone remember when democracy was so open in this region?

Let us hope President Barack Obama continues the Bush policy for democracy in the Mideast and voices opposition to other totalitarian countries that threaten us.
