I spent some time with the author of a new book titled, The Facade Presidency. The man known only as T.F.P. is retired, having served many years in the health care industry. He told me that he was thoroughly disgusted with the GW Bush presidency and that the book was a cathartic in dealing with those 8 long years and spent the first part of his retirement writing the book.
Amazon says of the book, “This book also provides a different perspective on some of George W. Bush’s Decision Points. It uses facts to remove the conflicting and misleading information of the Bush years. It illustrates why our country got the results we did and where it is today based upon the actions of his administration.”
TFB said that the the book will be out shortly, ‘as soon as the publisher gets the order straight.’ As I flipped through the table of contents, I was attracted to Chapter 4– Media, Political Shenanigans and Bureaucracy. Now there’s quite a stew of stuff, especially from the characters who made up his administration.As the author worked in the health care field, Chapter 6 must be one of TFB’s most critical analyses. He devotes 3 chapters to GW Bush and science [which sounds like an oxymoron, I know,] but those chapters pique my interest greatly.
The author and I attended a meet-and-greet political event to support the candidacy of a woman who is running for Congress. The three of us were re-redistricted our of our congressional district through the shenanigans of Ohio’s GOP majority. Rather than being represented by long-serving Marcy Kaptur, we are now in the district of Bob Latta. Ugh! He holds the honor of being the 7th most conservative member of the House.
Angela Zimmann, or rather Dr. Angela Zimmann or perhaps Rev. Angela Zimmann will be running this November to unseat Latta. She is quite the bright, energetic and determined woman who may just upset the right-wing GOP congressman. More on her in another post.
