Americans Figure Out There Are Two George Bushes

Bush in the 2000 primaries thought they were voting for his father.

It only took six years, but many Americans now seem to understand it was the old President Bush’s numbskull son who became president in 2000. And guess what? They don’t like the son, not at all...
