I’m not that interested in reading what President George W. Bush has to say about the topics he’s interested in discussing. Today is the release date for his book but I have a very different list of things I want to know. Namely, what were his immediate reactions to some of the events that happened while he was in office.
These aren’t the most important things, just important things Bush wouldn’t necessarily have known about it in advance. First responses are always telling. Inquiring minds want to know.
Here’s my list:
The first American has died in Afghanistan
Daniel Pearl is killed
Saddam Hussein’s capture
Re-election is confirmed (Remember that in the 2004 Election Bush almost lost in a similar fashion to the 2000 Election he won. That year, Ohio could have disrupted the popular vote/Electoral College relationship.)
Colin Powell’s resignation
Fidel Castro’s resignation
Sarah Palin as John McCain’s VP choice
Barack Obama winning Nobel Peace Prize
