Read full description of the books:
This is the third in a series. I suspect the first two were better: it's the nature of a series of collections of quotations.
Yes, George W. Bush was an inarticulate president, and that was sometimes funny. In hindsight, though, it seems irrelevant, considering the tremendous amount of damage he did to his country.
In a foreword, Al Franken put his finger on the problem:
Yes, these books are [internationally] popular.... And as an American, that worries me to some extent. It is one thing to have the rest of the world believe that our president cannot be trusted. It is quite another for them to think he is stupid.
Because he is not. It has taken me some time to come to this point of view. You see, facility with language is only one aspect of intelligence. Bush, as I have come to appreciate, is a shrewd, if dishonest, politician who surrounds himself with like-minded advisers.
"Compassionate Conservatism." "By far a vast majority of my tax cuts go to those at the bottom." "No Child Left Behind" -- the most ironically named piece of legislation since the 1942 "Japanese Family Leave Act." All these in their way are as funny as any of the malapropisms in this volume.
