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.

    " A very informative look at the connections of "Dubya" along with actions he had taken. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Donna | 2/8/2014

    " Not as good as her first book on Bush. "

    " We miss you, Molly Ivins! Being a Texan political reporter and essayist, she knew Dubya better than most when he took office as President, although he surprised even her with his capacity for murderous bungling and meanness. Her approach was, like that of Jim Hightower, to look at the lives of ordinary people and explore how they are affected by the politics of the President and the Congress. She blended laughter and hope with anger and determination not to let wrongdoing go unnoticed. The end result, at least for me, is to leave the reader simultaneously appalled and laughing out loud. We need more like her. "

    " Molly Ivins knows how to write with TONE. Her tone in this book is funny, yet what she reveals is frightening. Old, but still good background info on Bush. "
