The Truth About Bush
Another expose of the real Bush family and how they destroyed America. How an illiterate C student became President of the USA ,started two wars, and ignored Clintons warning about Bin Laden is almost a farce. While puppet masters Cheney and Rove pulled his strings Bush went along with everything that would try to make him better than his father. Only it didn't work. Where are those BUsh/Cheney bumper stickers now?

Deceit in the House of Bush
After reading this book, you will want to see GWHB & GWB and their cronies put on trial for treason, convicted, and sentenced to a minimum of life in prison!!
Publishers Weekly, 2003-12-22 Political and economics commentator Phillips (The Politics of Rich and Poor, etc.) believes we are facing an ominous time: "As 2004 began, [a] Machiavellian moment was at hand. U.S. president George W. Bush... was a dynast whose family heritage included secrecy and calculated deception." Phillips perceives a dangerous, counterdemocratic trend toward dynasties in American politics-he cites the growing number of sons and wives of senators elected to the Senate as an example. Perhaps less convincingly, he compares the "restoration" of the Bushes to the White House after an absence of eight years to the royal restorations of the Stuarts in England in 1660 and the Bourbons in France in 1814. To underscore the dangers of inherited wealth and power, Phillips delineates a complex case involving a network of moneyed influence going back generations, as well as the Bushes' long-time canny involvement in oil and foreign policy (read: CIA) and, he says, bald-faced appeasement of the nativist/fundamentalist wing that, according to Phillips, is now "dangerously" dominating the GOP. Casting a critical eye at the entire Bush clan serves the useful function of consolidating a wealth of information, especially about forebears George Herbert Walker and Prescott Bush. Phillips's own status as a former Republican (now turned independent) boosts the force of his argument substantially. Not all readers will share Phillips's alarmist response to the Bush "dynasty," but his book offers an important historical context in which to understand the rise of George W.
