"There's a huge trust. I see it all the time when people come up to me and say,
'I don't want you to let me down again.'"
-- Boston, Massachusetts, October 3, 2000
"Well, I think if you say you're going to do something and don't do it, that's trustworthiness."

This book made us laugh so hard we almost wet our pants. We can't write too much of an in depth review here, let alone a serious one. We can't make fun of GWB2, as he does it sooo well himself. But, if you want a light hearted funny (and sad, well sad for a POTUS), then have a read. A few bucks well spent. This book is filled with the great intelligence that our 43rd president shows. It's funny and will make you glad of one thing... you are smarter than the President!!
