Even if you disagree with his politics or hold him accountable for leaving the country with two wars, a huge deficit, and in a financial/economical meltdown, Ex-President, George W. Bush, is still an intriguing study. The 43rd president is on the talk show circuit promoting his new book, “Decision Points.” Apparently the president is doing a bang up job.
Today “Decision Points,” Bush’s look back at some critical decisions in his life and presidency, is number one on the Barnes&Noble and Amazon.com websites. Bush’s book is getting some pretty good ratings and comments from readers and reviewers on both sites. Also, the Los Angeles Times has an insightful review on “Decision Points” here.
In his book, Bush sums up his presidency this way: “History can debate the decisions I made, the policies I chose, and the tools I left behind. But there can be no debate about one fact: After the nightmare of September 11, America went seven and a half years without another successful terrorist attack on our soil. If I had to summarize my most meaningful accomplishment as president in one sentence, that would be it.”
Ultimately, history will determine the success or failure of the George W. Bush years. Until then, the debate is further stimulated by the ex-president’s vocal assessment of his administration and his memoir, “Decision Points.”
