Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush is a completely bias book. This book would be useful in a psychology class on what is the mental capacity of a self- centered and extremely conceded president when complementing his own judgement. The author is also majorly opinionated towards Bush because he got his information from Bush himself. He used to be an editor for Texas monthly. Robert Draper is no more than a gossip journalist that has a bias opinion of Bush’s proceedings and decisions. The only reason he wrote this book was of because his own self-interest. If you are interested in a person, then you already possess an opinionated view of that person. In this book, he does not list any consequences of Bush’s actions as the president …show more content…
This author has a bias opinion of Bush but he was so for off with his views of a good president. Page 3 The author, Robert Draper, beside the one sided views of Bush’s presidential decisions, this book is well organized. It clearly states the sequence of Bush’s presidency. It even expresses the race that lead up to George W . Bush becoming the president. It even lists how George W. Bush’s policies are made in order and is also has the actions to increase the national security of America in order after September 11, 2001. In my experience with people that talk highly of themselves it is all talk. It is why people that have done bad things always talk about their good deeds. They are just hiding the fact that they are bad people and they make bad decision. I just hate how this book basically ignored the fact that George W . Bush was a bad president, which was responsible for sending our troops to get even with a bunch of terrorists. His rushed executive orders has put countless of soldiers in the Middle East and we are just getting troops out of the Middle East now. This book is expressing a very arrogant

In writing A Voyage Long and Strange, Tony Horwitz’s goal is clear, to educate others on early America and debunk ignorant myths. Horwitz’s reason for wanting to achieve this goal is because of his own ignorance that he sees while at Plymouth Rock. “Expensively educated at a private school and university- a history major, no less!-I’d matriculated to middle age with a third grader’s grasp of early America.” Horwitz is disappointed in his own lack of knowledge of his home country, especially with his background history and decides not only to research America’s true beginnings, but to also follow the path of those who originally yearned to discover America.

Kamarck (2016) tackles directly the question as to how Presidents can utilize the massive bureaucracy they are tasks to lead. Unfortunately, in her view, the answer seems to be not very well. Kamarck contends that one recurring type of Presidential failure, “crash and burn spectaculars” can be attributed to Presidents’ inability to effectively manage the vast resources of the executive branch. Pointing to failures by Presidents Carter, Bush Jr., and Obama, Kamarck identifies three common reasons for these Presidential failures: failure of information to get to the President in order to prompt effective decision making, failure of Presidents to see early warning signs of disasters, and failure to understand the capacity of the government
Then he mentioned that people distrusted the government and worried about the energy crisis. Also, he acknowledged that there were some mistakes in the government, and there was a fundamental threat to American democracy. However, more and more people lost their confidence in the development of the country, President Carter regarded it as “the crisis of confidence”. He considered that it was not happening overnight, but happened for a long time with shocks and tragedy. Therefore, he encouraged people to have faith in each other and have faith in the nation to get through the difficulties.

Bush made his speech on September 11, 2001 he spoke outright to America. He spoke to citizens, victims, families that have lost their loved ones and military families that have their life on the line. Bush gave his country strength when there was a dire need for it. His speech was filled with rhetorical devices that brought peace to the chaos that riddled the country. Bush’s use of anaphora, homily and antithesis gave faith, wisdom and harmony to the country.
Presidency Article In Richard Neustadt’s often read book, “Presidential Power and the Modern President”, Richard observes the essence of presidential power while working in the executive branch. He served under President Franklin Roosevelt term and also stayed to serve under President Truman as well but it is said that President Kennedy brought presidential power with him in his time. During the first bit of his well written book, Neustadt expresses how the president’s good behavior and image can come with persuasion of others but the final page concludes Neustadt’s opinion on the struggles the president faces along with worldwide issues. According to Neustadt, presidents are expected to do much more than what the Constitution
In his “9/11 Address to the Nation” the 43rd President of the United States of America, George W. Bush assures that America will not be affected by the unruly and evil attacks carried out on September 11th, 2001. The President drafted this speech to resist the impending fear and questioning that American citizens around the country would soon be consumed by. Because 9/11 was the most impactful, yet devastating terrorist attack on the United States to date, Bush was not able to derive his thoughts from others’ ideas and speeches, thus he was forced to dig deep and extract the emotions and thoughts aroused by the “despicable acts.” Much like any great leader, President Bush wanted to stress the importance of instilling a sense of pride and resilience in the country and fellow countrymen and women to come together and remain as one. As the head of the “brightest beacon of freedom and opportunity” President George W. Bush declares that the United States of America will “remain strong” and appear unaffected as the country continues to build and rebound from the senseless acts of terrorism and hate.
A simple book written with the best intentions; Ray brings to the world Fahrenheit 451 in 1953 (Kipen). Having World War II influencing Ray’s ideas for the book. Fahrenheit 451 brings ideas and points that Ray Bradbury felt the need to write and open the public’s eyes to, as to how technology is changing people’s lives and they are leaving behind books and their critical thinking. Ray Bradbury brings a book about censorship and how banning or in this case burning books does not keep people from the curiosity of the message books have. A big irony arises and his book becomes banned and censored, exactly the same way as in his book.
On September 11th, 2001 the Twin Towers in New York City fell victim to a terrorist attack that left thousands dead, thousands more injured and millions in fear. Later that day George W. Bush, the President of the United States of America, created a speech to help calm the public about the events that occurred earlier that day. The speech was shown on national television the United States from the White House. The speech was effective because President Bush did help calm down the public with his speech. In President Bush’s speech to the public on the night of September eleventh 2001 he showed that his point of view was from the perspective that he was trying the comfort the American public.
His refusal to gloat or declare victory during the collapse of the Soviet empire helped Mikhail Gorbachev and diffused a possible backlash from the hardliners in the Soviet government. President Bush showed that he could act unilaterally (such as in Panama) but he was also able to form a large, diverse coalition (such as in the Persian Gulf War).” (Knott) The public was very content with those events. However, the public disliked him breaking his promise of “no new taxes” (Rimscha 92), even though it was not a voluntary decision.
A dogged work of reminiscence by an author not naturally given to introspection, “Decision Points” lacks the emotional precision and evocative power of his wife Laura’s book, “Spoken From the Heart,” published earlier this year, though it’s a considerably more substantial effort than Mr. Bush’s perfunctory 1999 campaign memoir, “A Charge to Keep.” Certainly it’s the most casual of presidential memoirs: how many works in the genre start as a sort of evangelical, 12-step confession (“Could I continue to grow closer to the Almighty or was alcohol becoming my god?”), include some off-color jokes and conclude with an aside about dog poop? The prose in “Decision Points” is utilitarian, the language staccato and blunt. Mr. Bush’s default mode is
Your novel, The Graveyard Book, had a very interesting story line. The idea that an undead person could be raised by the dead and live amongst them was very intriguing. I enjoyed the fact that Bod had the Freedom of the Graveyard, which is a unique idea that was portrayed, in my opinion, excellently. One of my favorite things about the book was its illustrations. The illustrations added imagery to the story and allowed me to imagine what was going on in a different way than I would have if the pictures were not given.
