Bush Must Go by Bill Press
Bush Must Go by Bill Press
George W. Bush is shown by Bill Press to be the worst President this country has ever had and should be voted out of office this November with not a second thought.
Bill Press outlines all of his reasons in his book but certainly Bush/Cheney getting us into this fiasco in Iraq should be reason enough.

Flynt also highlights his now famous "Flynt Report" that derailed the the Republicans when they were going after Clinton. This is worth reading as the hypocracy of Bob Barr, Bob Livingstone and other politicians are amazing.
I'd say this book is good for those who want a meat… Read more
