Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0740741543, Hardcover)"I want you to tell your children that when they hear all the talk and all the speculation and all the thousands of hours of so-called experts babbling away about this, that, or the other, that the true policy of this government is to achieve peace for generations to come." "And we can show the world the true face of America as well. Oh, it's a diverse face, no question about it, which is our strength, not our weakness. But it's a face that can be bound by common goals and common values. It's a face that can stand squarely in the face of evil by the collective acts of people doing good in America." You've read the "Bushisms," but here is another portrait of the man and the politician. Long before then-Governor of Texas George W. Bush ran for the presidency, he was acknowledged by the media as someone who could be counted on to provide memorable quotes seemingly without much effort. Instead of focusing on the malapropisms and verbal stumblings for which this Bush is most infamous, The Quotable George W. Bush offers illuminating insights into the ideals, political and social philosophy, and leadership agenda of one of our most decisive, straightforward presidents. Until he writes his next autobiography after he leaves the White House, this book is the closest thing we have to a living memoir of the important years of President Bush's life, and it presents a true portrait of the man. The audience for The Quotable George W. Bush includes stalwart Republicans, conservatives, and the voting majority that consistently gives the president high marks and supports his administration without question.

Emmy-nominated humorist and political writer Tom Ruprecht offers up the first faux oral history of the United States' 43rd president. George W. Bush's life is presented in chronological order--from infancy to the beer-soaked floor of a Yale fraternity house, and from blowing off his questionable tenure with the National Guard to blowing off his presidential duties. Inspired quotes from the president's inner circle reveal long-simmering tensions between George H. W. and Barbara Bush; Condoleezza's unrequited love; Cheney's descent into madness; and much, much more.
