Bush's "Decision Points" in video satire

By Steven E. Levingston

The reviews of George W. Bush's "Decision Points" are pouring in. Our Jonathan Yardley said, "It's a pity ... that in the process of presenting himself before the bar of history [Bush] didn't make a good book out of it."

Writing for the New York Times, Michiko Kakutani said, "In the course of this book Mr. Bush hops and skips over many serious issues raised by critics, including the cherry-picking of intelligence by administration hawks in the walk up to the invasion of Iraq; the push for aggrandized executive power by the White House in the war on terror; and the ignoring of advice from the military and the State Department on troop levels and postwar planning."

Those are two of the serious evaluations. It's not surprising that perhaps our most-ridiculed president would also be ribbed for his book. For those satirical takes, let's go straight to the videos. Have a look and let us know which ones you like and which you don't.

George Bush must be felt sad and sorry for declaring inhumane, illegal and unwanted war of Iraq; but shamelessly he is making fun of his stupidity writing a shameless account of his Presidency and now taking credit of his destructive use of his power. If he would have been a President or a dictator of any third world Nation and carried out similar acts, he would have been captured while in the office and sent to Hague to get punishment for war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against civilization. In reality, he has dropped AMERICA to its lowest humanitarian level. Rather than making him important, he should be ignored from public life.

W should be an easy target, but (since you asked) the 6 linked time-wasters were neither funny nor insightful.

Ditto citysoilverizonnet's comment on the Bush himself.
