    Been listening to all the "hype" surrounding Bush's book. Lawrence O'Donnell said tonight on his show: "President Bush himself said 'that the TRUE history of his administration will be written 50 years from now.' So you can either buy the book or wait 50 years to find out the real truth!"

    Anybody planning on reading it??

    Will there be a comic book version? A young reader's version?

    How bout an upside down version? A version for dummies?

    Will he be doing any live readings anywhere?

    Ooooohh, I just can't wait!



    p.s. Hey, I just found this exclusive pic of Bush looking over the galley for his "memoir"
    ......written by god-knows-who (Karl Rove I'm guessing) before it goes to publication. Author!

    Already have it, have a friend employed by the publishing co. and he supplies me with reading material regularly. I've browsed it already and may wind up reading it fully.

    And the "reviews" come in from around the globe:
    British deny George Bush's claims that torture helped foil terror plots

    British officials say there is no evidence that waterboarding saved lives of UK citizens, as Bush claimed in his memoirs

    Bush 'not telling truth' in memoirs: Germany's Schroeder

    BERLIN - Gerhard Schroeder hit back on Tuesday at claims by former U.S. president George W. Bush in his newly released memoirs that the German ex-chancellor had broken his word over support for an invasion of Iraq.
    "Former American president Bush is not telling the truth," Schroeder said in a statement.
    Bush said in his memoirs that he told Schroeder in an Oval Office meeting in January 2002 he was determined to make diplomacy work but cautioned that while the military option was Washington's last choice, he would use it if necessary.
    "What is true of Afghanistan is true of Iraq," Bush quotes Schroeder as saying. "Nations that sponsor terror must face consequences. If you make it fast and make it decisive, I will be with you."
    But, Shroeder claims, Bush left out an important caveat in his published recollection.
    Schroeder confirmed on Tuesday that he had told Bush that he would "stand reliably on the side of the U.S." if it was confirmed that Iraq was sheltering those responsible for the September 11, 2001 attacks.
    "But this link, as it became clear during 2002, was false and contrived. This goes for reasons (for the invasion) given by Bush and (vice president Dick) Cheney too.
    "As we know today, the Bush administration's reasons for the Iraq war were based on lies."

    From the UK:
    This bid to rehabilitate Bush must be defeated: he left a trail of destruction

    The former president's memoir may seem to be all about the past, but it is most emphatically about America's present
    For Tony Blair it was sex with Cherie. For George W Bush, it's a turd from his pet dog Barney. In this season of memoirs the two leaders who so dominated the first decade of the century have been engaged in similar efforts to secure absolution by autobiography, to seek our understanding, even our forgiveness, by telling within two months of each other their story, their way.

    As one of the many people who are viewed as the "evil Libtards of LPSG" by various uneducated sources, you don't want us to be serious about this one. It wouldn't be pretty, which would lead to our clan of rabid conservatives having their feelings hurt and be all over this thread with their usual tomfoolery. Plus, who needs a book to remind us what we as a nation had to go through for 8 years?

    Besides if there's one thing I have to say about this "book" is that Bush finally admits to torturing people. Such a f****'n disgusting piece of garbage... see, what did I tell you? It ain't gonna be pretty.

    I think the should have inverted the cover to the text so when reading it people would be thinking you were reading it upside down. He did not write that thing anyway. Only way I would read it is if it were free.

    I don't like bashing from either side, state the facts if they exist which in the land of politics, ain't too likely.


    You're an evil libtard? I hadn't heard that, they really need a list here and 1 with the rabid conservatives too.

    I haven't any problem with the book being written, it's the same as with the other Presidents in the past with their memoirs. The people most likely to get it are their current fans and aside from dredging up the 8 interesting Bush yrs., it tells us what he thinks of himself and his actions. If you read every 3rd word, his book nearly makes sense, every 5th word and he seems a saint and you'll love him, read backwards, it's completely understandable.

    I will treasure my copy (at least until I light the fireplace and can place it in there).

    Oh, it's been said several times by many people.

    For me, I guess the aftermath that is his presidency just leaves too many tender scars for me to take it seriously. Besides, there are so many other better, uplifting books out this season such as Isabel Wilkerson's "The Warmth Of Other Suns".

    on that final note we can heartily agree! I am currently reading it and am moved by the saga as Wilkerson tells of these migrations.
