Bush II, Book I

The New Old Testament

Available At:


This book is the King James Version of the first term of George W. Bush's presidency.

Get it? No? Well, general narrative samples include:

• The transfer of power from Clinton to Bush, which appropriates the narrative of Moses passing the leadership to Joshua.

• Bush's overseas visits, which uses the narrative of the Israelites moving from place to place during their sojourn in the Sinai Desert.

• Bush's decision to invade Iraq, which occurs when God appears to him in a burning bush and declares that Bush declare to Pharaoh Hussein to “let my Iraqi people go.”

Get it now? No? How about the first three sentences to get a feel?:

1. After the rule of Clinton the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoke to Bush the son of Bush, saying,

2. “Clinton My servant is gone. Now therefore, arise, go over this Mississippi, you and all your emissaries, to the land which I am giving to them, to the king’s cabinet.

Now you got it. (right?) 

Praise for this book

In 112 short chapters, the book tackles all of the events of Bush's first term in office. Each chapter is quite funny with an in unconventional style of humor that will leave you with a smile on your face. While the book uses the Biblical narrative as a backdrop, and quotes verses quotes often, the author provides ample footnotes and URL's to guide the reader through the humor.
I just finished reading this book and could not wait to share my opinion: an excellent (easy) read, well documented events, humorous and entertaining -- a historical review of GW Bush's first term as president written in biblical language with tongue-in-cheek footnotes. One does not have to be a hard-core democrat to enjoy this book nor be reminded of the tragic leadership decisions made during that time frame.
the satire is very poignant and this book points out the true history of the George W. Bush's first term in a funny way. you will nod your head and say "that's what i thought" but never verbalized. learn the history of the term in a fun new way. i loved it.
