    Technological developments that happened to come about during Bush's term facilitated the spread of the deliberate, Stalinist-derived, anti-American propaganda directed against the US for about a century (you can recognize it through telltale words) . Bush is the one in office, so this propaganda will be anti-Bush.

    In addition, American-citizenship-holding global interests who resent the Bush Administration's frustration of their personal ambitions have deliberately paralleled these propaganda efforts with those of their own.

    Unfortunately for our society, this has been very effective; certain names have been transformed into emotional trigger words in the minds of many ostensibly intelligent people;

    even Hillary Clinton, for example, now appears to be no longer conscious of when she is choosing to utilize such propaganda towards a goal; she has incorporated it.

    Contaminated, as the KGB would say.
