Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

With George W. Bush's convincing victory over John Kerry in 2004, this book offers an indispensable look at his bold plans to continue implementing an agenda of compassionate conservatism.

Thank You, President Bush brings together the nation's leading conservatives to offer a thorough, hard-hitting look at Bush's leadership through a challenging period of war, terrorism, recession and recovery. Together in print for the first time, this all-star cast of contributors includes:

* George Shultz on Bush's bold foreign policy and necessary invasion of Iraq

* Art Laffer on the supply-side benefits of the Bush tax cuts

* James Dobson on the defense of family values and the unborn

* Phyllis Schlafly on protecting U.S. sovereignty from UN encroachment

* Mike Huckabee on Bush's strong character and bold convictions

As the most authoritative and in-depth analysis of the Bush Administration to date, this readable book shows why George W. Bush earned a return to the Oval Office and--in the process--proved himself worthy of his nation's gratitude.

From the Inside Flap

Terrorism. War. Recession. Few presidents have faced such a daunting set of challenges, especially so quickly upon taking office. Even fewer still have responded with the vision and leadership of George W. Bush. During a period of turmoil and danger, President Bush has proven himself a reassuring presence at the nation's helm.

Yet the President's strong performance has not deterred a chorus of shrill critics from taking to the airwaves and bookstores to denounce his character and distort his record. These misrepresentations must not go unanswered. An unprecedented collection of conservative and libertarian policy leaders have banded together here to make the case that the Bush-bashers are wrong; George W. Bush's record is not merely good, but among the very best. He is a President of whom we can be proud.

With chapters written by the President's brother, the Vice President, the Attorney General, former members of the Reagan Administration, and a host of the nation's leading commentators and scholars, Thank You, President Bush offers an unmatched perspective on Bush's tenure in office.

Read this book and you'll learn:

• How the war on terror and liberation of Iraq have dealt body blows to the terrorists while advancing both security and freedom.
• How the President's tax cuts ignited an economic boom despite a stock market crash, 9/11, and corporate scandals.
• How the President's unswerving faith has made him a powerful ally of women, infants, and children.
• How a man even many conservatives derided five years ago has become the greatest conservative champion—from missile defense and gun rights to economic reforms and abortion—since Ronald Reagan himself.

Though the authors take a dim view of the class warfare arguments of John Kerry and John Edwards, they do not take the tone of Michael Moore: this is not an attack book aimed at the "other guy." Rather, it is a thought-provoking, highly-readable look at the achievements of President George W. Bush; and it is one which no conservative—or curious liberal—can afford to do without.

Not since George Orwell's 1984 have I read such a sublime commentary on power and politics.

As the blurb promises, this book offers excellent "analysis." However, one area not fully covered is how the Bush administration fits into the history of political thought. For example, I highly recommend reading this book along side The Fourteen Defining Characteristics of Fascism, by Dr. Lawrence Britt, Spring 2003, Free Inquiry

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated.

This is a great great book. There are too many left-wing radical liberals that question our political leaders, especially our great President George W. Bush. I think it's about time that us comrades stand up and denounce that kind of behaviour for the communistic threat to American that it is.

Questioning leadership? Writing books about the President in an objective manner? What's that all about? The only truth we need is what what the President tells us we need.

I can walk around with this book and feel proud and know that no one will call the secret service and have me arrested for reading offensive material.

WAR IS PEACE

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

You've Got To Be Kidding Me! This is as bad as the billboard in the south with Bush's photo on it. Just from the cover alone, you know this book is pure propaganda. The introduction is from his BROTHER! How critical would he ever be? Get commentators who are actually FAIR and in the middle of the road.

But you can't do that with a book like this. Because all the facts have prooven over and over and over and OVER again that the war on terror has beena failure! With each failed reasoning to go to war, they change to a NEW reason!

This is coming out just in time for the 2006 election, how perfect.

President Bush's noble crusade to free Iraq from the liberal secular humanist yoke of the Saddam Hussein's of the world has set in motion an irrevocable chain reaction of incredibly good goodness. The "anything goes" Clinton-mentality of mid 90s Iraq has been supplanted with an "everything goes (boom)" mentality.

We will fight the terrorists over there so that we don't have to fight them over here, and if we don't find any over there, why, we'll create conditions suitable to their tenure. As to the WMD's, like God, their existence cannot be disproven.

Liberals are trapped in modernism, with their delusions of empirical reality, that there exists or do not exist terrorists or WMD's independent of our observing them. As Professor Sokal argues in "Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity", quantum mechanics has shattered the ingenuous Newtonian faith in an objective, pre-linguistic world of material objects ``out there.''

And in as much as the ontological categories of atomism and reductionism have been overthrown, so too is the "law" of diminising marginal returns, that tyrannical classist dogma of classical demand side Keynesianism, overthrown in favor of a law of increasing marginal returns, hence the supply side Keynesianism which has so strengthened our economy through the gradual mothballing of progressive taxation and the inflation of military spending on inapplicable technologies, such that DARPA may embrace its true dadaist mission of disjunctive production by which defense initiatives are funded inversely proportional to their actual usefulness. The arguement that our wealth disparity may approach 3rd world levels in the next few decades is coded racism.

We must learn to stop worrying and love the bomb. All your base are belong to us.

Part paean, part apologia, part theater of the absurd. Only Christians who religiously watch "The Factor" or public school children on psychotropic drugs prescribed by their resident shrinks will take this book seriously.

Here are some surprising things that are justified or glossed over in this volume:

How imperialistic crusades that benefit international crime syndicates (oil, military, pharmaceutical corporations), the Likud Party, and the U.S.-controlled international drug cartels are justifiable for "national security" reasons.

How $2 billion per day deficits and lax monetary policy have "jump-started" a sustained economic recovery that even our grandchildren will enjoy (provided that are not drafted as cannon-fodder in the current Hundred Years War).

How increased funding for Planned Parenthood through Title X and the allocation of grants to the WHO's African sterilization program is consistent with Christian principles of family values. (G.W.'s granddaddy, btw, was the Treasurer of Planned Parenthood.)

How pushing for corporate money grabs such as CAFTA and the FTAA is consistent with U.S. sovereignty.

How the Department of Homeland Security, empowered by the "Patriot" Acts, only resembles the German Stassi (Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, lit. "Ministry for State Security") on paper, but is no actual threat to our civil liberties.

The book could be excused if the authors left the impression that they were laughing as they wrote it. Propaganda with a wink and a wry smile can be entertaining if handled adroitly. Unfortunately one soon realizes that the writers are as serious as TSA officials frisking down nine month old babies at air port terminals (an outrage my youngest child was subjected to).

After finishing the book, you will realize that you cannot (excuse the paraphrase of our Malaprop-in-Chief) misunderestimate the Bush cult's ability to disassemble.
