US foreign policy

From Jim Hoagland:
American presidents do not habitually condemn foreign policies of the last nine administrations as a whole, especially when one of the preceding presidents is the incumbent's father and another (Ronald Reagan) his political idol. But Bush has done so three times in the last three weeks, starting with his ringing censure on Nov. 6 of "60 years of Western nations excusing and accommodating the lack of freedom in the Middle East."
Are the Europeans listening to Bush?
