    I thought the point was it was a poorly writen book period, that it was done by a ghost writer makes it even worse ( you would expect a ghost writer to due a better job then a former politician

    And then there's the snotty adding of the "[s]" at the end of "internet."

    And so on. This kind of juvenility is rife throughout the whole thing.

    I'm sure this fits pbrauer's definition of "serious journalism," but it's nothing more than a poorly-constructed hit piece. It's interesting that Bush himself, the man this jagoff obviously feels so superior to, would never be so ridiculously childish or petty.

    Like his take on the massive election defeat:
    Bill Maher:
    What does that tell you? You know, it tells me that this election was lost when Obama didnít back the public option. To me, that was the one key thing that said to the people Ė You know what? This is no different than the Al Gore Democrats, the old Al Gore playbook. "Letís run from our achievements. And letís not stand for what we believe in."
    Yes Bill.

    He's not your kind of Meister Spud. Though we don't agree about much... you're the kind of Meister we all can have a great time with.

    No surprise... I haven't met an Aussie I didn't like. Great, funny, fun loving characters whether you agree with them or not.

    Maher is an obnoxious, deluded fool.

    You are one of the least credible posters around here. When you criticize Bush with your Media Matters style, no one is impressed. There is usually little truth in your allegations.

    It seems to capture the style of the President's perspective and it is carried in the style of the President himself. This is exactly what a Presidential speechwriter is supposed to do: capture the President accurately.
