Constitutional law expert Greenwald examines the George W. Bush presidency and its long-term effect on the nation, dissecting the rhetoric and revealing the faulty ideals upon which Bush built his policies. On September 12, 2001, Bush presented a clear view of what was to come--a view that can be said to define his entire presidency: "a monumental struggle of good versus evil." Based on his own Christian faith, Bush's worldview was basic and binary--and everyone was forced to choose a side. Riding high on public support, Bush sailed through the early "War on Terror," easily defining our enemies and clearly setting an agenda for defeating them. But once the war became murkier, support dropped precipitously. Greenwald argues that his greatest weakness is the same rhetoric that once propelled him forward. Now, Greenwald argues, Bush is trapped by his own choices, unable to break out of the mold that once served him so well.--From publisher description.
