Description

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.

Professional reviews

"The authors of SHRUB: THE SHORT BUT HAPPY POLITICAL LIFE OF GEORGE W. BUSH deliver a scathing review of "W's" first two years in Washington. After George W left the Texas governorship, the state had fallen to dead last, or close to it, in many areas of public policy, including education and the environment. Now those same policies are being applied on a national level. From workers' rights to corporate favoritism, Ivins and Dubose combine appalling statistics and policy-making discussion with real-people stories of how hard life is for many middle-class Americans in George W. Bush's America. Anna Fields handles the mix of numbers, criticism, and personal anecdotes with intelligence and Southern charm, which will keep listeners captivated, if nauseated, at the decisions going on in Washington today.
