Description

A simultaneously rollicking and sobering indictment of the policies of President George W. Bush, Bushwhacked chronicles the destructive impact of the Bush administration on the very people who put him in the White House in the first place. Here are the ties that connected Bush to Enron, yes, but here, too, is the story of the woman who walks six miles to the unemployment office daily, wondering what happened to the economic security Bush promised. Here are reports on failed nation-building missions in Kabul and Baghdad. Here, too, the story of a rancher who has fallen prey to a Bush-Cheney interior department that is perhaps a wee bit too cozy with the oil industry. Bushwhacked is highly original and entirely thought-provoking--essential reading for anyone living in George W. Bush's America. "From the Trade Paperback edition."show more

Review quote

" Ivins is surely one of the nation's most adroit political commentators." -- "People" " A sprightly catalogue of every destructive policy decision the Bushies have made in their first two-and-a-half years. . . . Sure to delight the president's critics and madden his fans." -- T"he Washington Post Book World" " Ivins and Dubose are worthy heirs of the honorable tradition of muckraking." -- Paul Krugman," The New York Review of Books " " A thorough (and thoroughly researched) condemnation of our 43rd president's domestic policy. . . . The intensely individual stories make this much more than a tart tongue-lashing. . . . Illuminating reading." -- "Austin American-Statesman U.S." "From the Trade Paperback edition."show more
