Bill Sammon's book concerning The President and The ABBB (Anybody-but-Bush)legion is neither particularly critical nor laudatory. Its quality is TIME MAGAZINE topical. Dialogue and open-mindedness have long-ago gone to the firing-squad wall. "Hooray for our side!"is bascially what comtemporary political journalism comprises. [I respect President Bush and intend...

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done,
This review is from: Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry, and the Bush Haters (Hardcover)I read this book over a weekend and I found it well done. It is witty at times and adds perspective to events I didn't have before I read it. I highly recommend this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bush is hated almost as much as Reagan was..........,
This review is from: Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry, and the Bush Haters (Hardcover)Those of us who are old enought o remember, know that Ronald Reagan was despised during his tenure, especially on the Cantra wars, tax breaks "that only help the rich", raising the deficit and so on. But history now shows that Ronald Reagan was without a doubt the greatest leader this country had in the 20th century and is now loved and revered.
Isn't it ashame that some people look only in hindsight
While Bush is not another Ronald Reagan (yet) he comes closer than any other President who succeeded him or any other leader, front runner for the Presidency. He even comes closer to Ronald Reagan than he does to his own father George H. Bush.
It's back to Reaganomics. Those of you who loved the 1990's can thank Ronald Reagan for that and the republicans. If you think it was Clinton, then you are living in a pipe dream.

This review is from: Misunderestimated: The President Battles Terrorism, John Kerry, and the Bush Haters (Hardcover)Nobody has "misunderestimated" this guy at all...as many of us suspected from the beginning, Bush really has turned out to be a complete and dangerous oaf. This silly little book attempts to paint Dumbya's horrifying and scandal-ridden first term in a positive light(!), but, sadly for Bill Sammon, grim reality itself refutes every single one of the author's bizarre claims. To get a better and more truthful view of Dumbya's presidency, read THE BOOK ON BUSH: HOW GEORGE W. (MIS)LEADS AMERICA by Eric Alterman and Mark Green.
5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Reaganomics,
how to stimulate the economy? Who understands the value of small business? AND who realizes the folly of raising taxes?
AND isn't it great to once again have a President who won't back down on terrorists and puts the safety of this country above all else?
And isn't it great to have a President who has brought back respectability to the Presidency after his predecessor tarnished it?
It's certaintly great to have another "Ronald Reagan" in office again. A man who is a great leader, a great man and a great President. Thank you George W. Bush for serving your country well over the last four years and we all look forward to another four years of excellent service.
God Bless America! God Bless George W. Bush!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Review = Coward?,
I find it very interesting that all people who have reviewed this book in a 3+ star rating, more often than not, have left the viewer the opportunity to contact them or read more about them. More interesting and more telling is the fact that ALL of the "people" or "the person" who is panning this book gives no way to involve themselves into a dialogue with those who like this book, disagree, or want learn more about their vantage point. If you are reading this book and these reviews, then this may be very obvious to you already...
And if you hate Bush and are looking for Democratic talking points, I believe that a reader from "Boston" (no contact information, of course) who listed their review as, "Not quite 1984, but it sure smells like it" is a few reviews down from this the page...good luck to you and congratulations on the free will thing you've obviously mastered.
I am 1/2 way through the book and it is truly inviting. Not overly glorifying, but a pretty good look at the realities of being President when there is a constant target is on your back; both from terrorists and those who seek to obtain your political power within the US. Not in the same vaine as when the Clinton witch hunts were going on about misappropriated cigars. No, this is about a much more vitrial, mean-hearted and "left wing conspiracy."
Do yourself a favor: Turn off the TV, read a little of this book, and you will find that the talking heads on television start to sound very igonrant about this President, his administration and the direction of the country.
5.0 out of 5 stars He's in for the Long Haul,
I enjoyed reading this book, because it gives an insider's view of the Bush White House. Bill highlights the incredible outpouring of hate in Seattle (Little Beirut), the build-up to the Afganistan and Iraq wars, the Thanksgiving visit to the troops and other significant events.
It was also interesting to read about the Washington Press Core. Without being overtly negative, Bill shows their preening and obnoxiousness, the jockeying for position, and the twisted news coverage of this president and his administration. I especially enjoyed reading about NBC's David Gregory, with his hand-held computer and organizer. Gregory wouldn't let anyone else stand next to Dubya at the Crawford, Texas ranch.
George W. Bush may be a former frat boy, the son of a rich man who has led a privleged life, but he has grit.
To all the Bush haters--Dubya's in for the long haul. He will be "misunderestimated into" another four years.

This is a good book. Even if you don't like Bush, it's worth reading if for no other reason than to get the facts, not just opinions or even flat out lies.
