A simultaneously rollicking and sobering indictment of the policies of President George W. Bush, Bushwhacked chronicles the destructive impact of the Bush administration on the very people who put him in the White House in the first place. Here are the ties that connected Bush to Enron, yes, but here, too, is the story of the woman who walks six miles to the unemployment office daily, wondering what happened to the economic security Bush promised. Here are reports on failed nation-building missions in Kabul and Baghdad. Here, too, the story of a rancher who has fallen prey to a Bush-Cheney interior department that is perhaps a wee bit too cozy with the oil industry. Bushwhacked is highly original and entirely thought-provoking-essential reading for anyone living in George W. Bush's America.

If you already thought he was a bad president because of the Iraq war, just read this book and see all the foul things he did or permitted to be done during his political career and your opinion of him will sink lower.
Before I read this book I thought maybe G.W. Bush was still only the second worst U.S. President after Warren G. Harding. But the incompetence and corruption of the Harding administration, as glaring as it was, hurt far fewer people than the Bush Cabal is hurting.
Chris Matthews and other political comentaters need to start talking about the actual policies and what they actually do to actual people. I mean the horserace is fun, but this is real. This is about people's lives. This is about what kind of country we are going to have for the next century.
Whether you agree with the conclusions or not, the facts in this book are all unimpeachable. Everyone should read this book before going into the voting booth.
If you make over a million dollars per year and don't particularly care what happens to anyone else, Ivins and Dubose make it pretty clear that Bush is your guy. If you make less than that or do care, you may have been hoodwinked. At least read the book and see what you think.
There's no reason to be a lemming.
In spite of what right-wingers might say, this is not "a leftist conspiracy." And I should emphasize the no-conspiracy part, because this is a book of facts! Example after example, the authors give a DOCUMENTED account of the disgraces "W" did in TX, and how it is now reflecting in the netire U.S. policy, and even more alarming, we're using BAD Texas-style foreign policy too.
It's a very nicely-written book, and the sarcastic tone of the authors makes this book all the more enticing.
