George W. Bush Book ‘Decision Points’ Out Nov. 9

decisionpoints2Even his legion of detractors will probably want to know just what Dubya was thinking (or not) when he decided he knew better and launched America into its first preemptive war. News of his new book, Decision Points from AP:

The publisher of former President George W. Bush’s book “Decision Points” on Sunday set a Nov. 9 release date, unveiled its cover design and announced new details about it.

Bush has said he is not writing a traditional memoir but an account of key decisions in his life. The cover features a photo of then-President Bush alone with his thoughts, standing in the Rose Garden Colonnade, wearing a dark suit and holding a briefing book, his head turned slightly from the camera.

According to Crown Publishers, “Decision Points” will offer “gripping, never-before-heard detail” on such historic events as the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the 2000 presidential election along with Bush’s decision to quit drinking, his relationship with his family and other personal details.

“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 strikingly personal and candid account revealing how and why he made the defining decisions in his consequential presidency and personal life.”

A publishing industry source familiar with the book said that Bush had completed a first draft and was editing the manuscript on a computer at his office in Dallas…

    does anyone think this wont be 100% lies written in the voice of an 8 year old?

    • tonyviner

      We all need the occasional break from reality, and I imagine that that is just what this will provide. Maybe some baseball stats, too.

    “alone with his thoughts” i'd take the waterboarding

    I guess one way listening won't be that effective. For me, will research more points on this so I can make my own judgment

    I am not a big proponent of book burning, and would not advocate anyone being silenced in any manner, but I might just buy a copy of this book, two actually, one for wiping my ass with and another to burn, because I was told that it is not good practice to burn poopy paper. And it sounds like a good time. I might buy a copy of Hannity's new book for the same occasion. I did mistake a stack of them for trashcans (somehow?) at Costco recently.

    • honu

      I wouldn't 'buy' them even if it is to wipe your ass with. Wouldn't want to financially support the man with the emotional maturity of an 18 year old.

  • honu

    the man spent more time on vacation than any other president in history. What was he thinking? Probably, what's for lunch and how bummed he is that all the terrrr stuff interferes with clearing brush. That and 'I can't wait for the people much smarter than me to figure out more ways to fleece the American people.'

    • http://disinfo.com ralph

      Yeah what exactly is a decision POINT? Doesn't the president make “decisions” every day?

    • tonyviner

      Try telling that to the teabag crowd. According to some of these geniuses Obama has already surpassed Bush in vacation time. Can you imagine? Hating vacations AND black people?

    Curious who is really writing this book? From the Daily Beast: “How did 28-year-old ex-Yalie and former speechwriter Christopher Michel become the man behind Dubya's memoirs?”

    Where can I pre-order?

    So Shrub spent “almost every day” writing Decision Points, did he?
    I wonder how many boxes of crayons he went through…..

    Decision Point #1:
    Do I want an O'douls with that pretzel?

  • oman28

    I'll dismiss the book as propaganda but if Bush HAS been spending most of his time writing anything then I would love to read THOSE musings

    Put that in your pipe and smoke that punk !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dick

    You should wipe your ass with your face !!!!!!!!!!!! Because you showed the world how stupid you are !!!
    Bush is a fantastic President so pull your head out of your butt and get a clue !!
    George Bush has integrity unlike our current administration !!!!

  • William671

    You are a complete moran E.B.
    If you actually look at the real facts, the current President is the worst President in US History and he is taking this country for a ride !!!
    Do you realize because of Obama the country is now in a 1.2 trillion deficiet which Obama put us all there in only 2 years, thats right in 2 years NObama managed to rack up 800 million in deficit !!!
    When George Bush left the office, we were only in a 400 million deficit but now thanks to D**Ass Obama we are at 1.2 trillion and the health care bill is a f*********** joke !!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Anyone who voted for the health care bill is completely stupid and if you support the bil you are stupid too !!! There is the truth and yes the truth may hurt but it is the truth so stop tellin lies just because you want something to bullsh** about !!
    Get a life and get on the right track and that track is Republican !!!!
    Only the Republicans can save this country now since the democrats have ruined it !!!

  • Andrew

    Any the only “evidence” you have to prove Bush was a “good” president are the failures of his successor, misspellings, insults, and a lot of exclamation points. Any fool can post shit like that and call it truth.

    Bush is a failure, as is your opinion.

  • Andrew

    Integrity… You mean like posting insults under three different pseudonyms?

    Now, I am not sure who this Bob fella is, but this is the comment that he removed shortly after posting it, for whatever reason.:

    “Tony, you are f******** moran, pull your head out of your ass, GW Bush is the best President we have had in years !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The President we have now is a complete idiot like you Tony !!!!

    Put that in your pipe and smoke that punk !!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    Perhaps he decided to remove it due to his misspelling of the word “moron”. Maybe it had more to do with his lack of punctuation, telling me to smoke a punk. That is what people call those little incense-looking things that children use to light fireworks with, right? I am not gonna smoke any of those things. You must be out of your mind, sir.

    It could simply be that the guy was joking around. I am not sure how else to interpret any statement that claims George Bush to have been the greatest anything ever. Maybe the greatest impediment to human rights and environmental issues, but even there I am sure he falls well short of some of our more motivated “leaders”.

    Comparing me to the current President is a bit silly. I never even mentioned my skin color, so it would be impossible for you to make an accurate assumption. Also, you know nothing of my domestic or foreign policy – assuming I even have an opinion – so that is another nail in the coffin of your attempt at intelligent discourse.

    I can only hope that you, and those like you, are taken out in the first wave of exterminations when the aliens arrive.

      I am a champion of the belief that people retreat further into the shameful conduct that has brought them embarrassment because denial is easier than changing behavior.

      After all…look at gangsta’s…they are low rent, ignorant, violent, crude criminals…but they celebrate their conduct as a lifestyle. Then look at child molesters creating NAMBLA…making something so unsupportable into a political movement. Then look at racists…taking garden variety hate and transforming it into a movement.

      People with something to be ashamed of, transform their shame into their pride…because they have nothing else to celebrate. They have souls devoid of worth…and struggle to find merit in their existence.

      And thus…we get Bush fans who cheer for him even after all he has done to merit a quick trial and a hanging.
