1.0 out of 5 stars Self-absorbed perverication!, December 20, 2010
This review is from: Decision Points (Hardcover)
If you want to read more rewrites of history and hear more justification of the self-serving, ignorant and uncaring behavior toward others - this is the book for you! If you want the truth - you need to go elsewhere.

Two thoughts: First, "perverication" is not a word. Second, did you actually read the book or are you just making an assumption about what Bush wrote in it?

Liberals can't stomach that President Bush's was a successful presidency. Most of his policies are still in place, although best of all was the scene at the White House by Obama & Clinton teaming up to defend the Bush tax cuts. And now on top of it all a best seller book. No wonder the liberals are fuming and writing one star reviews just like this one!

It appears you make too many assumptions.

Your first assumption is that Bush's presidency was successful. There is not a single accomplishment that he can point to in eight years, except the one the pundits give him: that he "kept us safe from terrorist attacks." The greatest attack on American territory was under his presidency, and there is ample evidence of ignoring several warnings before it happened. There is also no evidence that anything Bush did post 9/11 actually thwarted more terrorist attacks. (I ate an apple today and didn't get sick. Does that mean an apple a day keeps the doctor away)?

Your second assumption is that his policies are in place because the Obama administration found them useful. There is ample evidence of Republican obstruction to removing or changing much of Bush's legislation.

Your third assumption is that Obama and Clinton "teamed up to defend the Bush tax cuts." I think you missed the point of that "teamwork." It was not to defend the Bush tax cuts; it was to get unemployment benefits for six million Americans with the compromise of keeping the tax cuts. Without the tax cuts, the unemployment benefits would not have passed. As Obama said, compromise means sacrificing things you do like, and accepting things you don't like for moving forward toward a greater goal. Compromise has nothing to do with defense, especially in this instance.

Your fourth mistaken assumption is that I, a liberal and registered Independent, am fuming at the sale of this book. First of all, I'm happy that the book is selling so well. I understand all the money is going to charity, and I find that very agreeable. Second, I have no problem with rubes parting with their money for such a book. As the saying goes, a fool and his money.... It also reflects a man that is scared that his legacy will be less than what he hopes for.

As one man said: "Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book."

As usual, Edwin, you are SPOT ON.

That's true because you believe it?

Because Bush says it?

Last I heard, some nonpartisan poll suggested his 36th on the scale of presidents. He's up there with James Buchanan!
