Trump = Bush

Why didn't the George W. Bush thugocracy elicit the same huge public protests that Donald Trump is getting?

Let's be honest here. Trump = Bush. Granted, Bush had experience in public office, but I don't see any ideological difference. A Ku Klux Klan chapter even endorsed Bush, but the right-wing media did of course sweep it under the rug. Bush was doing all the same things Trump is doing.

Looking on the bright side, the stronger pushback against Trump means people are smarter than they were in 2000. Back then, everyone's idea of thinking outside the box was growing their helmet hair an inch longer or suing Napster.

But if it takes this long for people to get it, people are not fast learners.
