Submitter: This book found in my local public library is a 2000 biography on George W. Bush. The last page of the bio states that Mr. Bush has just lost the Michigan primary to John McCain. So this book predates his win in the first election, 9/11, two wars, and his second term. However, my library sees enough here to have 5 copies in its system! Yikes!
Holly: Show some respect, people! Whether you love or hate any former president, at least have the decency to offer a biography that tells the whole story. In Bush, Jr’s case, significant events happened during his presidency that changed life as we know it. Personal politics aside, he’s important. Kids writing reports are going to fail if they work off of this book. It’s complicated enough that there are two President Bush’s. Give a kid a chance!
(Five copies? Really?)
