From the Inside Flap
Every week, President Bushs top strategists gather in the West Wing office of Karl Rove to plot what they wryly call "strategery." The word was coined by comic Will Ferrell in a Saturday Night Live skit that portrayed George W. Bush as an endearing dimwit. Far from being offended, the presidents men adopted the term as a sort of ironic inside joke. In fact, they laughed all the way to reelection. Strategery is the behind-the-scenes story of that hard-fought election and the tumultuous year that followed. Strategery chronicles the perpetually "misunderestimated" president as he vanquishes John Kerry and then embarks on a breathtakingly audacious second-term agenda. He vows to rein in the judicial activism of a runaway Supreme Court, defeat the "Bush haters" who blame him for Hurricane Katrina, and, in his spare time, end tyranny around the globe. Strategery is a remarkably vivid portrait of the president as he is seldom seen. In one chapter we find him bloodied and flat on his back in the Texas dirt, having tumbled from his beloved mountain bike, now splayed across his chest. In another he single-handedly rescues his own Secret Service agent from a scrum of hostile Chilean bodyguards. In a third we watch Karl Rove being chased from room to room in his own house by a mob of angry protesters who pound on the windows and reduce his terrified family to tears. Strategery is the third installment in a multi-volume set of New York Times bestsellers chronicling this unlikely yet historic presidency, written with verve and piercing insight by Bill Sammon, who has been granted unprecedented access to President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Karl Rove, and other senior White House officials.
