Author's Statement
FOUNDERS v. BUSH is a comparison in quotations of the policies and politics of the Founding Fathers and those of George W. Bush; a sourced compilation in their own words on issues of War & Peace, Religion & Liberty, Taxes & Debt, Honesty & Responsibility ---a tragicomic juxtaposition of mind-numbing NewSpeak and timeless eloquence.

This book contrasts the statements of George W. Bush and his advisors with relevant words from Franklin, Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison and Hamilton. While it is not a book of Bush gaffes and malapropisms, it is hardly possible to compare Bush’s simplistic pre-chewed garble to the elegance, wit and erudition of our defining spokesmen without wincing in dismay. However, the purpose here is not to portray Bush as a clown prince. “Bushisms” tend to deflect us from the issues and, in fact, many of the dopey statements and malapropisms most often attributed to Bush are fakes, or were actually said by Dan Quayle, or were spoutings of some late-night comedian or splenetic Anon.

As to George W. Bush, I don’t purport to know anything about him beyond his public image and pronouncements. I don’t know if he truly eschews open-minded discussion, ignores undesirable evidence and reasoning or if he is a master actor who has created a convincing persona of the “artificial aristocrat” that Jefferson warned us of; I don’t know if he is ignorant and uncurious or merely master poseur---but that he is a smug demagogue and prodigious liar is beyond all doubt.
