Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is funny and informative. You will realize what a non-hero Bush wasn't on 9/11 and remember quotes that have gone away"

--Meria Heller (added by author)

"...after reading this book, you are left yearning for the Keystone Cops, who would have done a far better job protecting our nation and reacting to 9/11." --Buzzflash (added by author)

History and satire--very tasty! -- Loud guy in next cube

Sharp, thorough, well-reasoned, and funny as hell! -- Jay Richardson

From the Publisher

On 9/11 the passengers aboard United Flight 93 bravely fought the terrorists like true Americans. The President of United States, our Commander-in-Chief ran away to Nebraska.

Tough on terrorism? Strong on defense? Leadership? Not quite. Compared to George W. Bush’s gutless and incompetent performance on 9/11, Brownie looks like General Patton.

The President pulled a FEMA for 102 minutes while al Qaeda struck with impunity—but since W’s actions on September 11 were largely ignored by the national media—most people weren’t even aware of the little man’s of ass sitting paralysis in an elementary school classroom until Michael Moore’s film "Fahrenheit 9/11" exposed the frozen 7 minutes—let alone know about Bush’s clueless loitering—cutting and running, and terrorist appeasing for the other 95 minutes of the attacks.

Ron Schalow’s "Bullshit Artist – The 9/11 Leadership Myth" provides a full account of the President’s lollygagging, decision avoiding and hiding in the heartland on the tragic day—in Bush’s own words and the tortuously twisty recollections of the White House brain trust—Card, Rove, Fleischer, Hughes, Rice, Cheney & Rumsfeld— plus the traditional bushel basket of excuses that follow every Bush failure.

And Bush cheerleaders like Bill Sammon, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, John Podhoretz, David Frum and Dick Morris also chime in to provide cover for the cowardly Commander-in-Chief—evidently more concerned about the image of their beloved politician than the security of the American people.

Then, as if his flaccid failures on 9/11 weren’t shameful enough, a delusional GW boasts of his defense prowess at least 19 times per day in the following years—whoring the terrorist attacks and 3,000 deaths on his watch to his immense political benefit—a Bullshit Artist at his best.

The True and Important Story of Spleen Clutching Incompetence, Forehead Slapping Stupidity and Shin Sweating Cowardice.

One would assume that the president did everything he could on that Tuesday in September 2001. But this book, using thorough research, quotes from the President's own advisors, and the author's acid commentary, show that Bush did next to nothing that day. In fact, this is the first book I have seen that directly discusses the fact that no effort was made to evacuate the Pentagon even though national Security Advisor, Condoleeza Rice, knew that 2 planes were heading towards DC, and Donald Rumsfeld had a gut feeling that the Pentagon would be hit.

Most of us had no time to think about it back then, but the only person to be protected during the attacks was Dick Chaney, who was removed from the White House and escorted to a bunker, while everyone else there was left to fend for themselves (and again, this was before tower 2 fell down or the Pentagon was hit). Bush was well protected after the attacks were over (and you could argue that he was in no danger that entire day being in Florida, Louisiana, Nebraska, and finally DC). It simply shows the tragedy of the Pentagon attack. If ANY lives could have been saved that day once the hijackings were in-progress, the 120 who perished in the Pentagon could have.

This is also the only book I have encountered that reflects the feeling I have had all along that Bush took too long to visit New York City. He arrived the morning of Friday September 14th, and instead of assuring New Yorkers that their president was there for them, he played the role of cheerleader (literally with a megaphone) and staged a photo-op with men who were risking their health to be at that site. Pathetic. And our 'liberal' media used that moment to compare Bush to Winston Churchill during the Blitz.

Our President seems like such a nice man, but when you read this book you have to wonder if we elected an incompetent. He choked, big time, when we needed him to act decisively, and then his spin doctors went into overdrive, creating a raft of contradictions, mis-truths and, to quote the title, bullsh*t. It's a scandalous chapter in our recent history, and Ron Schalow's book does an excellent job of laying out the timeline, the actions and the ongoing spin-job. Schalow isn't the most polished writer you'll ever read, but he clearly has done his research and his intelligence and wit are razor-sharp.

Kudos to the author for enlightening so many people about man that fewer and fewer American's approve of. I only wish that we could have known all the spin that we have been fed prior to the last election.

This is an above board attack on an incompetent presidency, not just on George Bush per se. It confirms what we (Republicans) have always suspected about him and his presidency but didn't want to know, or admit to ourselves. GWB and Dick Chaney can no more defend America than they can fight their way out of a paper bag. It shows how little we Americans expect of our leaders.

Maybe John Kerry did cheat with his medals, and had shifting values, but at least he served in the military. It makes one wonder about these "Frat boy" Presidents. They just don't seem to be made out of the same material as their fathers. GHW Bush was a true statesman and a credit to his race and to this country. But the "GWB and Dick Chaney show" can only have one ending: It will grind to a screeching halt, crash and burn, taking American prestige down a full notch with it.

In a time of one of the worse crisis in our nation's history, there sit Bush and Chaney with their hair on fire and their heads stuck in the sand hiding out, waiting for the "all clear signal," but then immediately running to the front of the line to the first photo op to take "unearned credit" for what the Firemen and Policemen of New York City and Rudy Guillani did. In a miltary chain of command, doing such as that would have been considered disgraceful and dishonorable -- not to mention immoral. And for the leaders of a Banana Republic to have done so would have been laughable, but expected. For the leaders of the last standing superpower to do so is well beyond being just down-right embarrassing. It is also unconscionable.

I am not a Bush basher or hater. He strikes me as a nice, not so very bright man. Someone nice to have a beer with.

The proof is there for all to see. Detailed research lays bare the fact that this is an administration that that knew and knows more than it will ever tell about the events of 911.

It shows an incomptenet leader ship and lays bare the fact that all Americans should realise by now that we are truly like mushrooms kept in the dark and fed Bull@#*& by the artist himself. The authors research proves we should all pay more attention to what is printed and learn to correcly interpret it, the proof has always been there for all to see

Ron does a great job of using the presidents own words against himself. He is able to provide detailed information on how the ball was dropped during 9/11 and still has not been picked up yet. I look forward to reading more of Ron's books and have recently found his blogs.
