Bush Must Go the Top Ten Reasons Why George Bush Doesn't Deserve a Second Termby Bill Press
Synopses & Reviews
"The election of 2004 is not about whether you like George Bush better than John Kerry. The election of 2004 is about one thing only: It is a referendum on George Bush's record. It is our only chance to get rid of him before he can do any more damage — to our nation, to our environment, and to our children's future."
In the election campaign of 2000, candidate George W. Bush ran as a compassionate conservative. He promised to be a uniter, not a divider. He promised an America where no child is left behind. He promised to control spending and balance the budget. And he promised a humble foreign policy. Instead, President Bush has just about wrecked our country. He's spent money like a drunken sailor, taking our economy from A-OK to IOU. He's pitted Americans against one another, waged war on the environment, created new enemies around the world, and left us even more vulnerable to terrorism.
There's only one thing you can count on if George W. Bush is re-elected: more of the same. The same disastrous policies, the same crony capitalism, and the same broken promises.
That's why Bush Must Go.
In this essential and timely handbook, Bill Press focuses on the ten most important reasons why this president does not deserve a second term. It doesn't matter whether your priority is the economy, health care, the war on terror, or homeland security. George W. Bush is on the wrong side of all the issues, and Bush Must Go is a galvanizing call-to-arms that will give you, in one place, all the ammunition you'll need to help dump the Toxic Texan and reclaim our country.
Book News Annotation:
Nationally syndicated columnist Press distills the reasons to toss George W. Bush out of the White House down to ten political sins, each of which is treated in a chapter. For Press, as for many others, the number one reason "Bush must go" is that he "lied us into war." Other reasons include the loss of 3 million jobs, spending money "like a drunken sailor," undermining civil rights, crony capitalism, alienating the rest of the world, a poor environmental record, broken promises, and damaged credibility. After the ten, he adds a bonus reason: "He stole the 2000 election."
