Bush Didn’t Write No Damn Book

The first lie you’ll encounter with Decision Points is the identity of the author; Bush didn’t write no damn book and if I’m wrong about that, I’ll eat the shoe that Iraqi journalist threw at him. Decision Points is a hoax as transparent as the Clifford Irving’s fake autobiography of Howard Hughes.

Take a good look at the man who held the title of POTUS for eight years – he looks jittery and it’s worth speculating if he’s back on the bottle. I’m not suggesting that Bush is stupid. You need to be awful crafty to regurgitate the same WMD lies for eight years. I’m just saying that the ex-president was in no mental state to write a book – certainly not a book of this size. The entire book was probably farmed out to some Neo-con boiler room operation. The word is already out that Condi Rice vetted the doctored manuscript before it made its way to the printing press. I can see Bush now patting Rice on the back “Condi, you did a heck of a snow job.”

The ex-presidents Neo-con handlers and their entrenched operatives in the main stream media will do their best to cover up their crimes and as well as his. It’s not that they’re worried about their reputations. They’re worried about the legal consequences.

The real mystery is who really authored the fictional autobiography. I’ll grant that there’s a plausible possibility that if you give a zillion monkeys access to a computer, one of them will pound out a three page masterpiece. But if I’m not mistaken, George Bush doesn’t know how to use a word processor. Seriously, if Bush actually wrote a book, I’d be the first to buy it.

By all accounts, Deception Point is no Mea Culpa. Among Bush’s few regrets is a photo taken of him as he did a fly by to see what the Hurricane Katrina commotion was about and he’s still disgusted that some rapper said he ‘didn’t care about black people.’ But Bush professes not a shred of remorse over the millions of Iraqis that were killed, maimed and fled into exile as a result of his misadventures in MessOnPotamia. You can take this to the bank; George Bush doesn’t care about Iraqi people.

I expect the pundits will find it easy enough to pick through the weapons of mass deception fairy tales or pounce on the ex-president for being a self-confessed torturer who took the precaution of consulting a Dick Cheney appointed lawyer before approving water boarding and who knows what else. There’s no question that Bush and his accomplices lied about the phantom WMDs and that’s that. There was no intelligence failure and everybody with a lick of sense knows it.

Say what you will about the American intelligence community but never discount their capabilities. If Valerie Plame and Ambassador Joseph Wilson knew the WMD ‘evidence’ was fabricated, so did a whole bunch of other people in the CIA.

The decision to invade Iraq was a result of a failure of judgment not a failure of intelligence. Blinded by their ideological passions, Bush and his Likudnik neo-con advisers bet that their Iraqi venture would be a cake-walk and a slam dunk. WMDs or no WMDs, very few Americans would have complained about an easy and swift victory. And let’s give them credit; they were right – for a few months. Check out the president’s approval ratings in the immediate aftermath of the invasion of Iraq. Even when things started getting a little wobbly, Rumsfeld famously scoffed “we don’t do quagmires.”

By the time Bush realized he was wading neck deep in a quagmire, Rumsfeld started contemplating the “long hard slog ahead.” Seven years later, we have a clear idea of where the trillion dollar neo-con inspired slog led us. Iraq has emerged as a blood soaked chaotic landscape where Shiite theocrats and radicalized Sunnis going at each other. Today’s Iraq is ranked as one of the most corrupt and unstable countries in the world. So I’m just curious about something. When God told Bush to invade Iraq, did he mention anything about the potential decimation of one of the largest and most ancient Christian communities in the Middle East?

Moving on to the crazy decision to disband the Iraqi army – Bush’s phantom biographers are again pointing the finger at Paul Bremer for making that disastrous decision. If I recall, the neo-con praetorian guards tried to pull this off back in 2007. Fortunately, Paul Bremer refused to fall on his sword and turned around and handed documents to the New York Times proving that Bush knew in advance of the plan to dissolve Saddam’s military. The notion that the senior American envoy to Iraq would be left with the decision to disband the Iraqi Army was absurd on its face. When Bush was called out on it by Robert Draper, this was his response – “Yeah, I can’t remember, I’m sure I said, “this is the policy, what happened?’”

What else did Bush and his ghostwriters forget? I doubt the book mentions anything about Bush’s role in giving American occupation forces standing orders to turn a blind eye to Iraqi government death squads and ignore the torture dungeons operated by the vicious Wolf Brigades. That decision was in line with the Bush Administration’s policy of extraordinary rendition. No worries. Bush had Cheney’s lawyers sign off on that policy too.

There is no doubt in my mind that Deception Point is a hoax – a bit of revisionist neo-con history to fog our collective memories of Bush’s atrocities. And I’ll tell you who knows it’s a hoax – Random House, the publishers. Don’t boycott the book because there’s no book to boycott. Trust me – Bush didn’t write no damn book. Boycott Random House for their role in pulling off this hoax.

    Random House who are specializing in the publication of these memoirs of war criminals including Blair’s, should be boycotted. I would like to know who is buying the books.

    Bush wrote a book let’s see you know your regular disaster book and or movie let’s pick one maybe just your regular old fashion Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from that medium sized Star called the Sun. If Bush, junior wrote such a book probably something on the lines of a wealthy investment banker after finding out about the impending disaster after spending time with his girlfriend an older Hollywood Star who decided to stay at the pad overlooking a valley as the Sun set’s and sipping fine wine dressed for the occasion whatever that is he the wealthy banker get’s into his red Maserati and off to the city New York City to the water front a large glass building and goes to the top floor and in the great room other bankers dressed for the occasion and yes sipping fine wine and watching the Sun set. No no no a much better story line is after finding out about the impending disaster just regular people carpenters, nurses, farmers, mechanics, older people younger people mothers, wife’s, fathers all head for a cave deep in the ground. Yes the farmers bring food the nurses bring medicine and knowledge they all bring knowledge and before the CME hit’s it was said, “some stayed in the city some in there houses high on the hill” and then it was heard, “not to bright”.

    Speaking of book’s

    Top 5 at a Glance
    1. LIFE, by Keith Richards with James Fox
    2. BROKE, by Glenn Beck and Kevin Balfe
    3. EARTH (THE BOOK), by Jon Stewart and others
    4. THE LAST BOY, by Jane Leavy

    Yep the top five to me kind of like being dressed for the occasion. The book Earth a funny look at the human race will sort of as we are no longer hear or see then dear Jon goes and TV to keep us from doing just that. Then Broke well Beck is somewhat good at taking fact’s and making those fact’s somehow turn into his conservative looney tunes sort of thinking. Last night on his show Beck said George Soros was born a Jew then became an atheist and now doesn’t like Israel. I guess Beck and Soros are having a battle and could tell it was the battle of the God’s as Beck yesterday said I wonder how people will remember me you know when all the book’s are written. Beck should have stayed with the rodeo clown part and when younger got on a bike and knocked on people’s door’s as now he goes on TV from the fair and balanced channel and knock’s out any reason and imagination the people that watch him have left. Number two corporatized a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting—three hundred million people all with the same face.” Yes old Beck preacher man calm and at peace and God bless America the greatest nation to have ever been on Earth go shopping. Let’s see Beck has these three things to do charity is one of them we need to get back to our root’s the constitution and all that I know the Industrial Revolution part two drill baby drill frack baby frack and dig baby dig take that mountain top off it will be wonderful heck we could again but this time a special car on a train for a few allow gun’s on a train and shoot animal’s maybe Nugget will try it out but in 2010 probably a good idea to post a sign Capitalism is the best path to prosperity no shooting of the natives in the city’s and town’s they are the consumers throw candy instead. Maybe I should watch The Story of Stuff again it was so complex and hard to understand. Rodeo clown beck you are no rodeo clown.
