    Book on CD read by Molly IvinsThe subtitle really says it all. Oh, how I miss Molly Ivins!Ivins was a political commentator / journalist based in Texas. In an earlier book, she and Dubose examined the George W Bush’s flawed policies and abysmal record as governor of Texas. In this second book on “Dubya” they look at his presidency and how he has used many of those same strategies in running the nation. It’s a somewhat dated book, today, and yet frighteningly appropriate in this “primar [...]

    This book was quite revelatory in regard to George W. Bush; who bought and paid for him; how he rewarded those who bought and paid for him (with some of the worst policy decisions ever); and the price the rest of the country has had to pay ever since he was elected, first as governor of Texas, and then prez of the U.S. It is just so sad that Molly Ivins is not still alive today. She would have a hey-day just freely substituting Donald *rump's name for GWB's name in chapter after chapter. Of cour [...]

    We miss you, Molly Ivins! Being a Texan political reporter and essayist, she knew Dubya better than most when he took office as President, although he surprised even her with his capacity for murderous bungling and meanness. Her approach was, like that of Jim Hightower, to look at the lives of ordinary people and explore how they are affected by the politics of the President and the Congress. She blended laughter and hope with anger and determination not to let wrongdoing go unnoticed. The end r [...]

    It’s a catalogue of every destructive policy decision Bush made in his first 2 ½ years.Government no longer works for most of the people in this country.As governor of Texas, Bush lowered taxes for the very rich, lowered services to the very poor and made it a no-regulation state. He turned a $6 billion surplus into a $10 billion deficit. His first legislative victory as president was the tax cut that turned $127 billion surplus into $288 billion deficit. ($800 billion now!)One of Bush’s ag [...]

    I enjoyed reading this book, but the second half is better than the first. The first half is chock-full of so many statistics and dizzying governmental jargon that I had a hard time understanding it all. I also think Molly Ivins and Lou Dobose could have done with fewer sob stories. The book was very Michael Moore-ish in this way. It does get their point across, but I think it is a tool they use too often. The second half of the book is chapter after maddening chapter presenting evidence of the [...]

    WARNING: political content ahead. Read at your own risk!"For years, bestselling political commentator Molly Ivins has been sounding the alarm about George W. Bush. In Shrub, her 2000 skewering of presidential candidate Bush, the inimitable Ivins, with co-author Lou Dubose, offered a devastating expose of Dubya's career and abysmal record as governor of Texas. Now, in their second book on our current White House occupant, Ivins and Dubose take the wire brush to the Bush presidency and show how he [...]

    Peer back through the mists of time to the year 2003, when a man named George W. Bush was President of the United States. This is the era under review by noted Texas columnist Molly Ivins and her coauthor. I sometimes read Ivin's syndicated column in the newspaper around this time period, and I've never shared many liberals' love of her brand of humor (if you think it is funny to refer to Bush as GeeDubya, then you'll laugh a lot), but this book is a good time capsule back into the broad concern [...]

    Don
    This was written by the late, great Molly Ivins, who had seen George Bush as governor, and then president. So, some of the things he did as governor were the same as when he was president. Tax breaks for millionaires is just one example. But Ms. Ivins also brought into perspective some of the more horrible things Bush did as president. He got the country into deep debt by taking the country into two wars, both unfunded. He was terrible at foreign relations, and that explains why so many of our a [...]

    If only this book had been read to everyone of voting age on Halloween of 2000! It truly is a horror story, and may have changed the minds of anyone stupid enough to have voted for bush in the election following, thus producing the greatest horror story in American history, or maybe second only to slavery. We are still suffering the long-term effects of slavery, but I fear the long-term effects of the most toxic administration in history are yet to be measured.Ivins and Dubose start with the Pre [...]

    This book was written in 2003; kind of a long time in the whole politics thing, but I picked it up brand new for $1, so I figured better late than never.I am pretty glad I read it; I would have paid much more than $1 to learn some of the information in the book (of course no one should have to pay to know the truth), which is why I gave it the rating I did. Ivins & Dubose covered a lot of ground and detailed some of the horrible things Bush&Co have been doing to this country.As for the w [...]

    This one took awhile to read since I picked it up during my busiest time! It was not as *funny* as I had hoped, but it is classic Molly and I did read it just after she passed as a way to revel in her viewpoint. Back in 1999 when it was clear that GW was going to get the GOP nomination and my own guy was in knots over it, Molly was the only one writing things the way I saw them. I swore sometimes it was just Molly and I and no one else! Of course, I know this is not true - many of us were out th [...]

    Tina
    Absolutely fantastic informative book about the horror of the Bush years. It leaves the reader feeling much more knowledgeable and in my case, with much sympathy for the US electorate who have no way of having a fair election due to the immense amount of misinformation disseminated by those with the money to pay for the publicity. Shows the US system as deeply flawed. As Molly Ivins put it - government is for the "big bidness" when it should be for "the people". A must for anyone wanting an intr [...]

    What journalism should be! Molly & Lou show the importance of good government, of having qualified people in power who recognize the importance of their jobs, of government in curbing excesses from greedl before Katrina and "heckuva job, Brownie"! Conservatives don't believe government is the solution, then they make sure it's not by getting into power and dismantling programs and regulations that are in place to protect against greed, a natural outgrowth of unregulated markets. Too bad more [...]

    I have always loved Molly Ivins. She is so sharp. So funny, so right that I enjoyed reading her book on one of the worst Presidents in my 70 year life. George may be smart or he may have just been a poster boy, but the policies he approved or permitted were horrible. We are still suffering from the taxes he cut to the rich and the two wars he started. So even years later it is still fun to read Molly. Her suggests as to the solutions match up with Tom Friedmann's That Used to Be Us. The solution [...]

    First of all, I LOVE EVERYTHING MOLLY IVINS!I read this just before and after Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration and after the first several months of the Bush/Cheney economic meltdown --- due mostly, but not entirely, to Republican policies which have wreaked havoc on the world economy. Molly Ivins eerily predicts this in her book. She castigates Bush and the Republicans for dismantling economic safeguards which had been in place since the Great Depression. I MISS MOLLY! She would have had so muc [...]

    I dearly miss Molly Ivins. I've learned more about how government really works by reading her than anyone else. Molly had the respect to share politician's policy records and not gloss over them because it's too boring or unsexy. To the contrary, she makes the machinations of government a story I want to see more of. I've never had the reaction to a journalist's death like I did when Molly died. Just as many have speculated about how the discourse will be adversely affected this fall without Tim [...]

    Bonnie
    This book is EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT for me to get through. It is definitely not the writing Molly Ivins is completely passionate and plain-speaking I am still not over my disgust of the George W. Bush administration. Perhaps as things improve during the duly-elected President Obama's administration I'll be able to pick up the book again and feel less tense about it. God bless and rest in peace, Ms. Ivins. You've done your job.

    Joe Henry
    This was my first reading of Molly Ivins, prompted by her untimely death this year and a number of related articles which introduced me to her life/work. Without a doubt, the mission is an expose of W’s misdeeds and failures, but she does it without meanness and with humor. Fans of George W. Bush probably wouldn’t like it, but it/she should be required reading.

    Dianna
    You don't really have to read this book if you have already read "Shrub". They kind of say the same thing. Ivins makes it clear that Bush is definitely NOT the idiot he so obviously seems to be (what with his decimation of the English language and all). That is what is really scary--that he is actually very intelligent. Is is 2009 yet?

    Colleen Martin
    Molly Ivins at her finest! The talking book was a lot of fun, with Anna Fields and her droll accent, and I found myself laughing out loud at some parts (while wanting to bang my head against the wall at the same time easy feat). The world of political punditry misses this lady, that's for sure.

    Allison
    Should this book be classified under "horror, nonfiction"? Thank goodness Molly Ivins is(was) a writer gifted with a very funny wit, cuz these tales will scare the poop outta ya. Very educational as well, and she makes it pretty clear that, though we no longer have a shrub in the White House, this book is still extremely relevant. Yikes.

    Travis
    Good book on the 'Bush legacy', tries for equal parts of serious approach and humorous.Much as I love Molly Ivins, I just find the subject matter so depressing and blood pressure raising that it costs the book a star, as I read to stay informed, but when it comes to Republicans, I never enjoy the book and so generally subtract a star.

    Jody
    Molly Ivins always wrote with humor and blunt honesty. I miss her commentary about all things political. Bushwacked was a thorough look at the first years of the Bush presidency, which was a great time to be a wealthy American, and a lousy time to be poor or middle class.

    Kristin Huston
    I so miss Molly Ivins! Her comments on the upcoming election would be so insightful and on point. This book has pride of place on my bookshelf as it was inscribed and autographed at a reading when it was published.

    Edmund
    A slow read, but several flashes of Ivins' wit appear amidst the exhaustive reporting. Well done, of course. It prompted me to lament that the wrong Texas natives die prematurely. Long live Molly Ivins!

    Bethany
    This may be a book that was so good because it was desperately needed during the middle of the Bush era, but I still recommend it! Molly Ivins is one of my favorite writers. She's witty and smart thoroughlly enjoyable!

    Sam Lembanna
    This is a very entertaining and informational book. I would recommend this if you are the type of person who is interested in politics and likes to do their research (whether u are a Bush fan or not). A MUST read for those who are Anti-Bush.
