Bush and Nixon

If you want a great comparison to the Bush administration, go looking for The Boys on the Bus, a 1973 book by Timothy Crouse. It's kind of hard to find, but if you read the sections about Nixon and the White House press corps, along with the sections about Nixon's closed appearances and speeches, where even the press was banished from the room, you would find a ton of similarities between then and now. There's too many to list here, but it's worth finding for a primer on what happened before and how we can fix this.
