Latino Experts Examine Bush Legacy

El Diario/La Prensa, Posted: Nov 20, 2008

NEW YORK -- This week New Yorks Spanish-language newspaper El Diario/La Prensa is publishing a series of commentaries by leading experts examining the legacy of President George W. Bush. An editorial published on Wednesday introduced the series, noting that editors are counting down the last days of Bush administration. Bush has presided over the dismantling of two world famous American industries Investment Banking and the Automotive industry and counting, editors write, adding that the president also leaves a nation at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, fewer friends and allies around the world (and more enemies) than at any time since the end of the Cold War, and more poor people in America than there were eight years ago.

Beginning today, Drs. Jaime Torres and Olveen Carrasquillo of Latinos for National Health Insurance will look at proposals Bush opposed and how they affected medical coverage for Hispanics. On poverty, former New York City official Lilliam Barrios-Paoli will lay out why compassionate conservatism was an inadequate response to systemic inequities. A longtime advocate for educational equality, Luis O. Reyes evaluates Bushs signature educational policy, No Child Left Behind. From Colombia, Mario Murillo will weigh in on the Bush administrations foreign policy toward Latin America and on how President-Elect Obama should shape relations with a rising neighbor. With pressure to depart from Iraq and refocus on Afghanistan, national security expert Patricia DeGennaro discusses the Bush pitfalls an Obama administration must avoid.
