It is an expose on the deception and obfuscation by him, his executive team, and administration with the help of a Republican Congress and enabling media. What makes this writing so imperative was G. W.s tour of speeches, press conferences, and rule changes to whitewash eight years of deception and betrayal. This book also provides a different perspective on some of George W. Bushs Decision Points. It uses facts to remove the conflicting and misleading information of the Bush years. It illustrates why our country got the results we did and where it is today based upon the actions of his administration. A professional reviewer wrote, It was a passionate yet professional view of his presidency. Anyone who wants to blame the current state of our nation on the current President should read this book. Excerpts: Then, the conflict ensued over our ideals and administrative innuendos about WMDs in Iraq. Except for some liberal outliers the media supported his arguments and fanatical optimism therefore tacitly approving his reasons for the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. The silent majority ached for constructive open debate about the justification for war. Their concerns were valid- we were about to send our sons and daughters into harms way again. As the world picture illustrated, we had stepped off our high and mighty perch to slug it out with the rest of the world in the degradation of civilization. We sank so low in eight years that we may never recoup our good standing throughout the world. Would it be possible to pull back from such a state? I dont know. The only point I can offer with certainty is that the U.S. was no longer considered the good guys in white hats. The elections that put G.W. into the White House and kept him there for four more years were shams. These elections disgraced our political system, from judges, to public administrators, to the media, to the Democrats, and, especially, to the Republicans. They represented the worst of democracy and set back the intent of our founding fathers. We should be ashamed as a nation to have allowed these to occur when so many countries have looked up to us and attempted to emulate our previous successes with democracy. According to the data analysis after the election, it was evident that millions of Americans didnt get it wrong- they just had their votes suppressed or usurped! Trickle down economics based upon free enterprise was an abysmal failure for which the average American would have to pay for decades to come. In retrospect, the $750 billion bailout of financial institutions to solidify the financial markets and allow lending to pass down to banks and other lenders starkly illustrated that trickle down did not work, especially when after two months none of the bailout money was available to consumers.
