You havent followed US foreign policy and politics for long have you?
Bush is just a drop in the ocean of Multi-national foreign capital penetration and intervention. He serves the same goals as his father; as bill and hilary clinton; and as Reagan. US foreign policy decidedly comes down (and hard) on the side of democratic agitation, and always supports the multi-national corporate agenda. It is just a matter of historical fact. When Bush leaves, nothing will change for the better. It will stay the same, or get worse.

During World War I we stayed out for most of it until the British had the Lusitania sunk, thus dragging us into the war.

I think the OP was referring to the population, not the government.
The government and the established political culture still clearly favor a policy of global interventionism.
The citizenry at large seem to have different ideas.
