Synopsis: All American presidents have lied, but George W. Bush has relentlessly abused the truth. In this scathing indictment of the president and his inner circle, David Corn, the Washington editor of The Nation, reveals and examines the deceptions at the heart of the Bush presidency. In a stunning work of journalism, he details and substantiates the many times the Bush administration has knowingly and intentionally misled the American public to advance its own interests and agenda, including: - Brazenly mischaracterizing intelligence and resorting to deceptive arguments to whip up public support for war with Iraq - Misrepresenting the provisions and effects of the presidents supersized tax cuts - Offering misleading explanations instead of telling the full truth about the 9/ 11 attacks - Lying about connections to corporate crooks - Presenting deceptive and disingenuous claims to sell controversial policies on the environment, stem cell research, missile defense, Social Security, white- collar crime, abortion, energy, and other crucial issues - Running a truth- defying, down- and- dirty campaign during the 2000 presidential contest and recount drama THE LIES OF GEORGE W. BUSH is not a partisan whine it is instead a carefully constructed, fact- based account that clearly denotes how Bush has relied on deception from the campaign trail to the Oval Office to win political and policy battles. With wit and style, Corn explains how Bush has managed to get away with it and explores the dangerous consequences of such presidential deceit in a perilous age.
