Ridiculously Skewed to the Left,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wit and Wisdom of the American Presidents: A Book of Quotations (Dover Thrift Editions,) (Paperback)
Before one even opens up this book, one can sense an inherent bias: on the cover of the book are nine universally recognized great Presidents (Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, Grant, both Roosevelts, Truman, Kennedy)...and one other, namely Barack Obama. No Ronald Reagan, no Eisenhower, no Calvin Coolidge to counteract such Leftism...not even James Madison. And then when one opens the book, one can see that George Bush was hardly quoted at all, despite serving two full terms, while once again, Barack Obama is quoted extensively, despite him barely even getting into the White House when this book was published. I guess the Left never, ever stops their brainwashing efforts, not even for one moment.

The quotes were presumably based on "Wit & Wisdom"; not how long someone served. Perhaps you are simply too skewed to the Right; what about the quality of the QUOTES themselves?
