President George W. Bush’s time in office was plagued with scandal, unjust wars, and catastrophic mismanagement of federal agencies — but in light of President Donald Trump’s propensity to stoke a new controversy on a near daily basis, some look back fondly on Bush’s reign as a flawed, but more acceptable, instantiation of the Republican establishment.

This is a huge mistake. As Bush’s recently announced decision to enter the midterm election fray on behalf of congressional Republicans makes clear, the former president is the furthest thing from a hero of the "resistance."

Bush’s goal, as it stands, is the same as Trump’s — preserve Republican control of Congress, which essentially serves to protect Trump from any check on his power.
