Bush Being ‘Nixonized’ by Left?
“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace braved the “liberal wind,” according to his colleague James P. Pinkerton, by defending George W. Bush from a gaggle of lefties eager to compare Bush to Richard Nixon at a Washington, D.C., screening of Ron Howard’s film “Frost/Nixon.”

James P. Pinkerton in “The Fox Forum”:
But then “FOX News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, braving the liberal wind, asked a question, which was actually more of an accusation. “To compare George W. Bush to Richard Nixon is to trivialize Nixon’s crimes and is a disservice to Bush,” Wallace said. Recalling that 3,000 people were killed on 9/11, and noting that there hadn’t been any attacks on U.S. soil since, Wallace suggested that something had been done right. That’s why, he said, “we are all sitting here tonight so comfortably”—and not afraid of another terrorist attack. Moreover, Wallace said, “Richard Nixon’s crimes were committed solely for his own political gain, whereas George W. Bush was trying to protect the American people.” To suggest otherwise, Wallace insisted, “was a grave misrepresentation of history, then and now.” And, amazingly, Wallace received a smattering of applause.
