Written by a ghost writer.

So. Yeah, pretty much.

Excerpt from Chapter 9: "Jeb's Daddy"


"...so, here I was President of the whole g*ddamn country and all Dad would talk about that night at the ranch was how smart Jeb was. 'George clears the brush, but Jeb hires someone to do it...then has him deported before the check clears!' was the joke. It was infuriating! Who got Saddam hanged? ME! Not Jeb! Who kept the secret about 9/11? Me! I wanted to punch somebody. How many Americans did I need to kill to show him that I loved him more?!?!"

Should be a fascinating tome. 'The Guy What Birthed Me on Third Base' By George W. Bush.


//Maybe he'll share some heartwarming stories on Prescott Bush and his war-profiteering partnership with Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler and his war machine.


///Perhaps he'll fondly recall the financial assets of the Saudi Binladen Corporation, headed up by members of Osama bin Laden's family, who played a principle role in helping George W. Bush win petroleum concessions from Bahrain when he was head of the Texan oil company, Harken Energy Corporation. A sweetheart of a deal that was to make the Bush family millions.


The Bush Family and the Carlyle Group. The unholy alliance that Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us about.

In all seriousness, it would be really interesting to be able to talk to GHWB. I bet he has some really interesting (and probably terrifying) stories. Although he likely wouldn't be able to tell you the really good ones...

Damn, Bush jr is in such deep denial that he has to drag his father reasonably good reputation down in order to redeem his own. I didn't particularly like the father, but GHWBush, and Baker, and I suppose guys like Brent Scowcroft and Robert Gates actually stewarded the world through some pretty shoaly waters, from Tienmen Sq(where he cut a pretty Real Politique deal with China [which I didn't approve of], to the fall of the Iron Curtain without massive bloodshed (which was a deft as it gets over the past 100 years), to the Gulf War, which he ended suddenly , and I thought prematurely, until I saw what his son did, and then I respected the father and Company all the more.

The best thing Bush jr. can do to redeem his name and his soul is to voluntarily turn himself over to the International Court  of Justice in the Hague, and submit to War Crimes hearings, and let the chips fall where they may.

My best Presidential support mission was flying Bush Jr's support into Genoa, Italy. The C-5 broke down over some obscure part and we spent an extra couple of days there until the parts could arrive. Nice hotel on the Med with per diem courtesy of the tax payers...thanks 'Murica! :)

Yeah, me neither, even though I voted for him in '88. It was his comment that he considered atheists neither citizens nor patriots that touched me personally. I am a life-long atheist who spent neatly 25 years in the military, plus two tours in the Peace Corps, and consider myself a patriotic American. Not blind...just patriotic. The fact that my CinC felt it okay as VP to voice that opinion has always stuck in my craw.

Yeah, he didn't say that.

It looks like a face of pure shock to me. I know it's cool and all to hate on Bush for everything he did/does, but that isn't really one of the valid reasons IMO. He really wasn't sure what to do then (and can't blame him there) and if he had walked out, just as many people would've criticized him for that. Besides, it's not like the 7 minutes it took him to finish reading it were all that important, since no one really was sure wtf was going on then.

He was in undisclosed locations for the next day or so, he wasn't actually doing anything that day anyway.

Well, it's not like they are going to say "the president is at X" right after we had 4 hijacked planes used as suicide bombs. I can forgive that, too
