George Bush Book 'Decision Points' Lifted From Advisers' Books
Ryan Grim writes in the Huffington Post George Bush Book 'Decision Points' Lifted From Advisers' Books "Crown also got a mash-up of worn-out anecdotes from previously published memoirs written by his subordinates, from which Bush lifts quotes word for word, passing them off as his own recollections. He took equal license in lifting from nonfiction books about his presidency or newspaper or magazine articles from the time. Far from shedding light on how the president approached the crucial 'decision points' of his presidency, the clip jobs illuminate something shallower and less surprising about Bush's character: He's too lazy to write his own memoir."
