Letters - Bushwhacked by history

Thank you, Andrew Stephen, for your thoughtful piece "Ambushed" (7 November). Since "Scooter" Libby's indictment, I have noticed cheerleading articles about how George Bush can "come back". The press is preoccupied with who's up and who's down, when it should be asking how things came to this state. By every measure, Bush is the worst president in my lifetime, but history will rank him higher than he deserves because history worships power, however fraudulent.

How can the scandal be compared so blithely to Watergate by the press? Have they, along with the administration, lost their moral perspective?
