Combining acerbic wit with insider political savvy, one of America’s most entertaining journalists tells readers why George W. Bush is not only the Right Man at the Right Time, but has become the greatest Leader of the Age
 
George W. Bush arrived in the White House an untested governor with an unfortunate habit of tripping over his own tongue, presiding over an economy slipping into recession, and a nation more obsessed with reality television than with the reality of international terrorism. He was considered by many opinion-leaders a dupe, an illiterate, a cowboy, a preppie, a child of privilege who would never have made it to the White House without the help of his ex-president father. Now, with his first term coming to an end, it is clear to John Podhoretz that Bush has become—and will be remembered—as one of this nation’s strongest leaders. He has changed the country’s agenda from top to bottom. Steeled by the tragedy of September 11, he has responded with visionary power and towering authority. He has presided over victories in two wars and a triumphant repositioning of his party. His secret: The willingness to spend political capital rather than hoard it. Bush Country makes its case with style and verve. Here is an engrossing and entertaining portrait that proves that “misunderestimating” our forty-third president is folly indeed.

Praise for Bush Country

“John Podhoretz is one of the sharpest and most forceful political writers in America today. He not only captures the politics of politics, but the culture of politics, the ideas behind politics, and most of all, the personalities that drive politics and history.”—David Brooks, author of Bobos in Paradise
