Posted on 10/28/2010 8:31:26 AM PDT by tirednvirginia
No link just headlines. Could this be the October Surprise?
Siren down. Drudge revealing the opening sentence of the book
And a pix of Bush and Nolan Ryan saying the pledge at the Rangers playoff game last week. Sweet.
Why couldn’t it have waited until AFTER the election?
Oops. Switched the picture. Drudge must be at his computer, things changing fast.
DAMMIT!!!!! NOT NOW! This is ALL we need! What assclown released this?
Exactly my thoughts -
Someone who wanted to screw things up.
Some liberal staffer at his publisher probably gave the galleys to the White house weeks ago for them to scan and choose what parts to leak over the last week of the election. PREPARE. This is NOT the worst of it.
As an alcoholic, I got a chill up my spine by the first line of his book. I asked myself that very question a little over 6 months ago, and I regretted to admit that I couldn’t remember the last time I didn’t have a drink.
I give G.W. a TON of credit; quitting booze is no easy task, esp. for those among us who are predisposed to addictive personality traits (myself included).
You really have to just keep yourself busy to stay away from the feelings of need to drink. I’m sure sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania was enough to keep him sober for his 8 years.
Bush is doing this to hurt conservatives.
Let the demtards run against Bush. It’s too late for them to gain any real mojo now.
Terrific! Let’s change the subject right before the election so nobody is talking about the economy. WHO DID THIS?
A line from a book?
And that’s just gonna turn all types of votes?
Yep. This moron timed the release of the book to help Obama.
Agreed. George W. Bush is a real dirt bag for doing this.
Trying to hurt the GOP at the last moment.
Bush apparently doesn’t understand how much the public has come to dislike him.
How on earth could he be so stupid as to do ANYTHING that could draw attention to himself this close to an election?
Nothing good can come of Bush being back in the spotlight. I have to think some liberals leaked the book knowing how much damage it could cause Republicans right before the election.
Holy overreaction Batman
I remember the book was supposed to be released before the election and they got it held back.
But that was back when the Democrats were “going to hold congress for 40 years”.
Since then a lot has happened.
Bush Derangement Syndrome is in remission in all but the most diseased lefty.
Hard to predict...but a Presidential comparison at this time may be a GOOD thing.
No, this is Bush’s doing. He has been making public appearances recently. His publisher told him he could make more money on the book by disclosing some of the contents before the election.
After odumbos appearence on the tonight show nothing can save odumbo the heckava job dude, when a comedian mocks you to your face, it is over
We just have far too many people on our side that panic over anything.
Do you guys really think releasing exerpts from the Bush book (don’t go there) will hurt the GOP on Tuesday? How? What can this book possibly reveal that hasn’t already been lied about by the ‘Rats? Don’t forget why people are going to the polls in droves... Stimulis, Obamacare, etc.. Bush didn’t do that... The only people that can possibly be hurt by this book is if he throws someone under the bus. Outside of that, W is old news and folks are tired of the blame Bush campaign.
“It was a simple question, ‘Can you remember the last day you didn’t have a drink?’”
I don’t see how this hurts anyone including Bush - he had a problem and got over it.
You people are giving Bush too much credit, like the libtards did Obama, he isn't GOD and neither is Bush!
I have to disagree, I love when the left brings up W lately, because it turns people off.
W is as old news as the Macarana, and folks are just sick of the same old song and dance. Every time Obama blames Bush, every time the media gets on a anti-Bush rant, congress and the POTUS lose points.
People want to know what is going on NOW to fix their job situation, the economy, taxes, etc. They are sick to death of hearing about W, and the one-trick-pony of the D party.
I think the economy is in such bad shape for folks, and worries about the future are so bleak, people want folks who are looking ahead, not behind, and I think that is part of the success of the TEA party.
I say put Dan Rather on the air, and let him do another report on Bush, run it all week long, and watch the generic poll go up 5% on the republicans.
Bush isn’t running for anything. Who cares?
I agree - panic and hysteria seem to be the order of the day. (And if you think Bush Derangement Syndrome is bad on the left, it ain’t nothin’ compared to how it is on FR.)
Things get taken out of context all the time and I think some of this book will definitely be mismanaged.
I doubt Bush did this on purpose but I do know his administration was never good at stopping leaks.
“My name may not be on the ballot, but our agenda for moving forward is on the ballot...” - Barack TOTUS Obama
That makes zero sense.
Good grief, everyone, calm down! When the left bashes W it only strengthens my resolve to get out the vote! I’m fed up with these asshats blaming W for everything.
Because AMERICA IS MISSING BUSH
Actually, the book was supposed to be released BEFORE the election, but Bush asked them to wait until AFTER the election so that it wouldn’t become an election issue.
Someone ELSE is up to no good.
I was hoping the book’s title would be: “F**k you, Liberals! I Am Not a Chimp!”
“you really have to just keep yourself busy to stay away from the feelings of need to drink”
Most recovering alcoholics are sober because of their commitment to working the 12 Steps of AA. The first word of the first step is “We”. It’s a fellowship that has saved the lives of countless millions.
Apparently Dubya did it on his own. All the more power to him but that’s not how most of us saved our lives.
Bush is a clown. He nearly destroyed the party, and we are beginning to build it back up. Why can’t he leave us alone?
Either he is tone deaf or wants to hurt the party.
This will help motivate dispirited Democrats.
The Republican party is already tremendously unpopular - even among Republicans. Part of the reason is how the GOP conducted itself during the 8 years of Bush's presidency. The GOP has been trying to repair that damage for 2 years now. Anytime Bush worms his way into the spotlight it reminds people of just how much they came to dislike Bush and the Republican Party. There is a reason Bush can literally campaign nowhere - not for any Republicans at all. Think about that, he is so unpopular he can't make ANY campaign stops for fear of being in the news and reminding votes how much they dislike him and almost anything associated with him.
Bush needs to stay in a bunker somewhere till we can recover from all the damage his did to the Republican brand.
Wow...FReepers are really over reacting to this. BDS has gone viral. Not gonna affect Tuesday at all...how many have lamented, with billboards and blogs, ‘miss me yet?’
It is too late now for a proper October Surprise and they are traditional in Presidential election years, not so much in midterms, not generally, anyhow. Some individual candidates here and there get hit with things that have been saved up for October but there is usually no Big Surprise that affects the whole range of the midterms.
Bush is writing a book! Get out your crayons!
Teasers now on Drudge:
From 911’s “Day of Fire” to “Katrina” to “Financial Crisis”, Bush explains...
Bush, Prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, and the magic turkey...
Who Bush prayed for at Pope’s funeral...
What order did Bush make on 911?
Does Bush comment on Obama presidency?
Siren back up
I worked in the publishing business.....trust me on this.
