"Madrid - It will take the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George. W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published on Saturday.
'The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn't have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,' Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.
The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States '100 years to repair the damage' caused by Bush.
'We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government ...which controls the media,' he said.
Vidal also said presidential aspirant Barack Obama was 'intelligent' adding that it would be a 'novelty' to have an 'intelligent' person in the White House."
