    Memoir by George W Bush to be published in November

    Memoir by George W Bush to be published in November
    Written by: Editor on 26th April 2010

    Former US president writes about ‘never-before-heard detail’ of 9/11, his alcoholism, and mistakes and achievements while in White House

    The autobiography of George W Bush will go on sale in November, offering the former US president’s take on the September 11 terrorist attacks, as well as personal issues such as his battle with alcoholism.

    The cover of the book, entitled Decision Points, features Bush standing alone in the White House’s rose garden colonnade holding a presidential briefing book.

    Bush has said the book will not be a memoir but an account of key decisions in his presidency and personal life. According to Crown Publishers, it will offer “gripping, never-before-heard detail” on 9/11 and the 2000 presidential election as well as his decision to quit drinking and insights into his family life.

    “Since leaving the Oval Office, President Bush has given virtually no interviews or public speeches about his presidency,” Crown said in a statement. “Instead, he has spent almost every day writing Decision Points.”

    A publishing industry source said Bush had completed a first draft and was editing the manuscript at his office in Dallas. A former White House speechwriter, Chris Michel, is helping. The source was unsure whether Bush had compared notes with his wife, Laura Bush, whose memoir comes out 4 May.

    Bush was known for not acknowledging errors, but Crown said he “writes honestly and directly about his flaws and mistakes, as well as his historic achievements.”

    Aside from the easy oxymoron of "Bush writing a book", when even Condi Rice warned his administration that, "He's not a big reader", does anybody believe Bush actually wrote a book when during his 8 years in office he probably didn't read one?

    Will Bush come down to earth and admit to making mistakes?
    Will he fill in any missing time from his National Guard service?
    Will he admit his "No child left behind" was a colossal failure as it actually caused more work for our nations teachers due to more testing and being hugely under funded?
    Will there be any confessions on his lies that caused us to invade an innocent country?
    Will he admit invading Iraq was his plan even before he took office?
    Will he confess to ignoring Clinton's heated warnings about Bin Laden when he first took office?
    Will he tell us why Ashcroft starting flying on private jets just before 9/11?
    Will he tell the truth about Cheeney's and Rove's and Libby's conspiracy to out a covert CIA agent and why he never fired anyone after he told the nation he would?
    Will he speak to Rove's involvement in firing those U.S. Attorneys who didn't do Rove's political hack work?
    Will he admit that Cheeney actually ran everything and worked him like a puppet?
    Will he tell us why he suddenly grew a backbone when he defied Cheeney's constant requests to pardon Libby?

    I don't expect any deep thoughts from this or any heretofore not known revelations. Even a good ghost writer can't get blood from a stone. I expect the same level of substance in this that's in Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue". That is... none. This will have a similar purpose as did Rove's book, to polish his image for the historians. He never cared about what the American people thought of him while he was our president. This will be no different.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    The Chapter on his "historic achievements" is going to be a very short one.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It turns out George Bush is no stranger to a good book

    In his Wall Street Journal column, Rove says that Bush read 95 books in 2006 alone. In 2007, he read 51 books and as of last week, he had read 40 in 2008.

    Yes, now liberals are "intolerant" because we make fun of someone! Tolerance means you can't criticize anyone for anything after all!
