    So, I was 3 when George W. Bush was first elected as President of the United States, and I was 11 when he left office. I cared little for politics, being the child I was, and as I approached my MRP, I needed information regarding Bush's presidency.This was useful in that Bush was not painted as an idiot as so many people have before. However, it almost went in the opposite direction. While this was not a book written by a Fox newscaster, it felt like it could be, because all of his mistakes are [...]

    'But Fred Barnes, despite his protestations, is himself a member of the Beltway elite, a top editor at a leading conservative magazine, a veteran TV performer, from a distance at least a likeable and sane individual.

    Rebel-in-Chief holds few surprises. I like Fred Barnes and have often found him to be quite insightful, but I find little more than hero worship in this book. It's not that I disagree with Barnes' characterization of Bush as a revolutionary republican; it's that Barnes doesn't really seem to question whether that might be a good or bad thing. On the other hand, Barnes is clearly a bright and fine writer.

    A diferent look at George W. Bush than media gave him. Barnes paints him as bold visionary Should be read by detractors even if they disagree with Barne´s assesment to see a diferent side.
