Nixon = Bush ?

As seen on Kos, HST from the October 10, 1974 issue of Rolling Stone:
"But the climate of those years was so grim that half the Washington press corps spent more time worrying about having their telephones tapped than they did about riskign the wrath of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, and Colson by poking at the weak semas of a Mafia-style administration that began cannibalizing the whole government just as soon as it came into power. Nixon's capos were never subtle; they swaggered into Washington like a conquering army, and the climate of fear they engendered apparently neutralized The New York Times along with all the other pockets of potential resistance. Nixon had to do everything but fall on his own sword before anybody in the Washington socio-political establishment was willing to take him on."

This Modern World rebutts:

Godbless Tom Tomorrow, I think he's nailed it. As swine-ish as Nixon was, he was no dummy. Georgie boy on the other hand...

Yeah, Nixon was just a paranoid and a racist bigot. Georgie Boy is a puppet, a dangerous, dangerous puppet.
