When Bush took office the Dow was at 10,500.

When Bush left office the Dow was at 7,900.

Even you can't believe Obama caused a nosedive before he took office. GTFO.

Will W be able to stay inside the lines or will he need Trig Palin's help with that.

His next book will be about how to win the World Series against a team of scruffy weirdos from San Francisco.

Former President Bush was soon informed that filling in a crossword puzzle did not really count as "writing a book".

It was later explained to him that a crossword puzzle requires completing words and not just drawing pictures in the empty squares.

Frustrated, the former President threw the book on the floor and stomped off to his room.

An automatic best seller as right wing groups snap up the tome and hand it out free to their idiot followers. Will confirm the validity of my opinion about "best seller" lists.

Dow Jones increases = Economic growth? Not sure if there is any connection between a good day at the MGM crap tables and the economy...

FTFA: "This is like Tim Tebow writing a treatise on passing accuracy, like Fox News releasing a how-to guide on fairness and balance in television coverage, like Rush Limbaugh teaching a gender sensitivity class, like Newt Gingrich lecturing about the sanctity of marriage, like Emily Post publishing a collection of "Yo Mamma" jokes. For sheer chutzpah this blows away Michael "Brownie" Brown penning a book on Hurricane Katrina and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt "Let's Cut Taxes and Increase Defense Spending" Romney lecturing anyone on the deficit."

It's also like Vlad the Impaler writing scathingly about Guantanamo Bay. It's like Basil II talking about opthalmology. It's like Amelia Earhart writing about reading braille, or Hellen Keller writing about how to hide in an attic.

It's like a Republican talking about economic responsibiity. It's just farking insane.

fta: ...like Emily Post publishing a collection of "Yo Mamma" jokes.

No love for the Emily Post joke? Wow, tough crowd.

While seemingly ludicrously counter-intuitive, Dumbya writing a book on economic growth was actually predictable in hindsight given the Right's predilection for cognitive dissonance and ret-conning reality in order to rehabilitate their images after the fact.

All the rest of the BushCo crew seem to have books out softening their image and re-imagining/ re-booting their "legacy" why not the leader of the pack?

That noted, I'm not buying this.

/On any level.

Those that can, do. Those that can't, get someone to write a book for them that attempts to rewrite history.

bdub77: Let me summarize:

"Look at everything I did from 2001-2008...and do the opposite."


I don't honestly know. Look at what the situation was during his Presidency: you inherit a "technology" bubble and have essentially no opportunity (horrific policies or otherwise) to even influence what sort of recovery would occur before the United States endures the September 11th attacks. Yeah, yeah, there's a billion or so comments that could be made about whether that was preventable, whether his attack on Afghanistan's Taliban-run government was executed will the proper diligence, ect, but I'm looking at this from the perspective of the Eastern Roman Empire. He's more of a Constantine X Doukas figure. Incompetent? Likely. Betray and otherwise misled by his advisers? Even more likely.

Maybe, he will be writing an economic thriller.
 
2012-05-17 04:28:07 AM
1. Have someone ghost-write a book for him.
2. Have a bunch of Republican groups buy it up in bulk, even if most copies will be destroyed without being read.
3. Profit!!! (In other words, economic growth for GWB.)

Having been President gets you a lot of economic opportunities.

Dufus: I did OK under Clinton.
My savings doubled during Bush.
I have lost over 80% of my savings under Obama.

I'm not sure how to interpret that other than I hope I have enough left to eat lunch after the next President.


That's odd, my income halved under Bush, lost my job in 2008, killed my savings, worked as a day laborer when I could. I start my new job back in technology on Monday.

Gobama!

happydude45: he was a much better president than the one we have now, so bash him. Dumb farkers lead the way.


So, what you're telling us is that you're a goddamn idiot.

Because Bush is only better than one other President since Hoover - Reagan.

Yeah, saying Bush is better than Obama is a good way to earn a sign to wear that says "I'm Stupid". Or in other words, "Here's you Sign."

I don't know but there would be crayons involved.

"George W. Bush Writing a Book on Economic Growth"

Suuure he is.

And Sarah and Bistol Palin write their own press releases, which is why the words that come out in print totally match the speech that comes out of their mouths.

Willful ignorance.

Gotta have some sympathy for dubya - he lives in a world of deluded sycophants, apologists, and enablers. What a sad, terrible person.

I don't see the problem. His tax cuts are still in place and our economy is gangbusters.

Hey now, his policies worked, it was just delayed. We are only now starting to see the Bush recovery from the Obama recession.

Yeah he is a picture troll. But he is being careful since all his other accounts got banned. Pretty sure its Afternoon Delight / Gato Negro.

Not really.

Just what the liberals in congress did in that time frame. Ya know.. forcing banks to give loans to anyone who can't afford it causing the housing bubble to burst. Basically just giving away fromm money.

bdub77: r1chard3: Doesn't work with Democrats. I haven't figured out how to make money off of Teacher's Unions.

Buy a teacher's union, assume massive debt, collect management fees, fire all the teachers and steal their pension funds, force the union to declare bankruptcy.


sounds kinda mitty to me.
