Let’s hope the old fart is wrong.

Madrid – It will take the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George. W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published on Saturday.

“The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn’t have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,” Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.

The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States “100 years to repair the damage” caused by Bush.

“We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government …which controls the media,” he said.

Vidal also said presidential aspirant Barack Obama was “intelligent” adding that it would be a “novelty” to have an “intelligent” person in the White House.

    You have got to be kidding. I may not like Bush (President Bush that is lol), but this is not a dictatorship nor a fascist government. I have read and seen the 2 for-mentioned governments and the US isn’t that nor has BUSH made it that way.

    Dictatorship would mean this post would NEVER exist and the person who made it would have been arrested. Fascist would also mean the same.

    And if he did, then we are all fools. Every single one of us for letting him…. if it was true.
