Reconsidering President George W. Bush

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ken @ 11:12 am

It was announced this week that President George W. Bush’s book, Decision Points, sold about 2 Million copies, including around 200,000 eBook versions since it’s release less than 2 months ago and before it became available in paperback. As a comparison point, that’s nearly as many books as President Bill Clinton’s memoirs “My Life”, published in 2004, which has sold almost 2.2 Million copies to date (six years of sales).

This raises a couple interesting questions: 1) Does this dispel the misconception that Conservatives (his presumed audience) don’t read books, and 2) What does this say about what many called America’s worst president ever?

Around the same time, President Barak Obama released his latest book “Of Thee I Sing”, a 31-page, $18 children’s book, apparently modeled after President John F. Kennedy’s “Profiles in Courage”, but aimed at the youth market.
