Not getting the concept

From Bush's press conference:

In a nation that once lived by the whims of a brutal dictator, the Iraqi people now enjoy constitutionally protected freedoms, and their leaders now derive their powers from the consent of the government.

Shouldn't that be consent of the governed?

Well, of course it should, but we should know by now that Bush doesn't know the difference between dictatorship and representative government.
