Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

George W. Bush on God and Country gives the reader the context from which the media pulls the sound-bites. Freiling organizes the speeches into topical themes: for example, the September 14, 2001 speech is titled "On Resolve. Other themes include compassionate conservatism, the use of prayer in American history, medical ethics, American values, the right to life, and justice. Using the original speeches from White House transcripts, Freiling removed the introduction, applause pauses and transcription errors. These minor changes do not take away from the strength of Bush’s vision for the America and freedom.

I'll admit it, i haven't read this book- but I want to. Yes, I am a liberal. Yes, I dislike Bush and voted against him. Yes, I will probably disagree with most of this book. So?

I see all of these angry readers who have said, "I don't agree with Bush's beliefs, therefore I don't recomend it" or "Bush is a hypocrit, reponsible for this or that, so I don't recomend his book."

I don't know what any of that has to do with deciding on buying the book. I want to read this book for 1 reason and 1 reason only- to see what it says! Not to agree,or necessarily believe- but definatly to see what Bush wants us to percieve about him. It's not going to replace my bible, my Constitution or my brain.

A lot of people here seem to think that anything that expresses a viewpoint other than your own is automatically 'bad' or 'crap.' Well, that is very illiberal thinking. Read opposing viewpoints, know the arguments on both sides, and even if you hate the man and hate his politics, know what he has to say. Really, we should all listen before we argue! Otherwise we are just talking to the dust.

Watch for reviews from those liberals who are livid with their hatred of Bush. Reviews are supposed to present your opinion of the book, not the subject. If someone spews hateful rhetoric about Bush, they have obviously not read the book and have no legitimate criticism of it. Some may also give invalid criticisms by attacking something not related to the purpose of the book.
This is a valuable resource for understanding the role of the President's faith in his life and in his work. Regardless of whether or not you agree with the politics or faith of Bush, this book successfully achieves the author's goal of using Bush's public speeches to show his true colors. This is an intriguing look at the President.
If you're filled with hate, don't waste your time spouting off because any critical thinker can see through your political bias. If you're really interested in the topic, check out this book.

What can you say about a man who's presidential administration did its best to destroy America?

A sitting president who was so onerous that his own political party refused to invite him to their national convention in 2008 and again in 2012? A man who destroyed America's historical record of never starting an unprovoked war and its moral reputation by unnecessarily torturing those it captured? A man who directly lied to the American people at a cost of 4,000 American soldier lives and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives? A man who cost America $1 trillion for this (knowingly) unjustified war?

A man who inherited from the Democrats a budget surplus and a path to end the national debt in 8 years THEN turned it into *trillions* MORE in added debt? A man who's bumbling administration oversaw an economy in which the Nasdaq lost 84% of its value and finally ended with the worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression?

A man so devoid of soul that he gave the 1%'rs $700 billion in government welfare while doing his best to end government assistance for the other 99%? A president who's administration did more to widen the inequality of wealth than any other president, ever, save for Ronald Reagan? A president who gave Big Pharma hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars by preventing negotiated pricing for Medicare drugs (in contrast to the approach by the Veteran's administration)? A man so black of heart that he turned a blind eye to the upcoming Katrina catastrophe on its eve, THEN congratulated his administration for the result with a "heckofa job, Brownie"?

A retired president SO disliked that the only forum he could find for the series of media interviews meant to rehabilitate his reputation was the National Geographic television channel?

I found this book to be encouraging and intriguing. I learned a lot about the heart and compassion of President Bush. The book will help the reader realize the depth of President Bush's Christian faith and what motivates his leadership. He has always seemed sincere to me, but now through this book he has become even more real. It seems he cares about all aspects of our nation and each individual in it. Read this book for a fresh perspective and get away from the rehtoric of the common media.

Format: Hardcover
These are truly inspirational words from a man and two ghostwriters who have been through it all. From college coke binges to recreational genocide, the frank admissions of George W. Bush are downright refreshing in this era of government goons who throw metaphorical matches at our great Constitution. President Bush is a true champion for freedom, and the very fact that this book was published is testament to his persuasive brand of bumfuzzle logic. While everyone may not agree with his policies, his devotion to reuniting church and state elevate him, in my book, to the level of the great Saint Apollyon...a pioneering spirit and zest for life not seen since the dark ages.

A friend of mine let me borrow this book. I found it to be filled with lies. President Bush has lied to the American people and this book proves it. Presdident Bush's ideas of faith, principle and patriotism are not my idea faith, principle and patriotism. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
