The American Left

Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones

Edinburgh University Press

The years of the George W. Bush presidency (2001-2009) yielded further evidence of a partial fading in anti-socialist sentiment, such as the election of Bernard Sanders to the Senate, the impact of movie maker Michael Moore, and the fixation of a new breed of neoconservatives with foreign policy and anti-Islamism rather than anti-socialism. The bellicosity of the Bush administration’s stances on Iraq and Afghanistan still provoked a new-style, social media based opposition from the left. At the end, put under pressure by the banking crisis, the Bush administration succumbed to a subliminal attachment to socialist solutions by nationalizing major mortgage, insurance and automobile corporations.
