Paul Johnson is a leading writer, author and historian in Britain. He was once a radical left-wing journalist in Britain. He converted to the Right under Margaret Thatcher and became the leading intellectual to support the conservative cause in Britain in his bestselling books and columns. A staunch supporter of the United States, he tells NewsMax that George W Bush is America's New Thatcher and warns of growing anti-Americanism in Europe.

Margaret Thatcher was UK Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990. She was ousted by her own party in 1990 because she'd completely lost the plot. She was replaced by John Major - a weak and ineffective Prime Minister, but the only real choice as Thatcher had got rid of everyone who disagreed with her.

In 1997 and 2001, Tony Blair won landslide victories over the Conservatives!

Today the Conservatives are yesterday's men and the party is in turmoil. Blair is expected to win next year's election despite the fact that 75% of the UK electorate don't trust him. Why? Because the Conservatives aren't a credible opposition.

This is Margaret Thatcher's legacy!

If Paul Johnson is right and Bush is like Margaret Thatcher, Bush's re-election could well herald the demise of the Republican party - just like the UK Conservative party.

If that's what you want, vote for Bush!!!
