Just what the world needs ... a revisionist history of the eight years of disaster as orchestrated by George W. Bush.
Bush granted only a few interviews since leaving the presidency, supposedly instead focusing his attention on writing his "Decision Points" book, which has a Nov. 9 release date. (I wonder who actually wrote it for him?)
The book reportedly will offer "gripping, never-before-heard detail" on those historic events that led Bush to make some of his ill-fated decisions, such as the devastating attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, that he used to invade Iraq and Afghanistan and mislead the American public of Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, and his highly questionable 2000 presidential election victory. The book also supposedly will detail his decision to quit drinking and his relationship with his family.
According to the PR people at Crown Publishing, which will print Bush's memoir, Bush was known throughout his presidency for not acknowledging any errors made by him or members of his administration. Crown, though, says Bush "writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his historic achievements in reforming education, providing life-saving treatments for HIV/AIDS and malaria for millions of people in Africa, safeguarding the country from another terrorist attack and other areas."
Ah, yes, Bush's life as seen by him, with his interpretation of it and the disasters he caused.
Just as John Brown's attack on Harpers Ferry has become a revisionist tale of Brown being a hero instead of a traitor who attempted to overthrow the government, Bush undoubtedly will see himself as the savior of the republic, protecting the nation from terrorism at all costs ... including destroying articles of the Constitution with which he and his mudslinging vice president disagreed.
The book undoubtedly will be a best seller, if for no other reason than seeing how Bush attempts to turn himself into a hero, rather than being one of the worst presidents in history.
