Bill of wrongs : the executive branch's assault on America's fundamental rights by Molly Ivins( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout her long career of "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted," the cause closest to Molly Ivins's heart was protecting the freedoms we all value. Sadly, today we're living in a time when dissent is equated with giving aid to terrorists, when any of us can be held in prison without even knowing the charges against us, and when our constitutional rights are being interpreted by a president who calls himself "The Decider." Ivins got the idea for this book while touring America to speak out in defense of free speech. In her travels Ivins met ordinary people going to extraordinary measures to safeguard our liberties, and she intended this book to be a joyous celebration of those heroes. But during the Bush years, the project's focus changed as Ivins observed how dissent in the defense of liberties was characterized as treason by the Bush administration and its enablers.--From publisher description
Vice : Dick Cheney and the hijacking of the American presidency by Lou Dubose( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dick Cheney is the most powerful yet most unpopular vice president in U.S. history. He has thrived alongside a president with little interest in policy and limited experience in the ways of Washington. Yet Cheney's quiet, steady rise to prominence over a span of three decades occurred largely behind the scenes. Now journalists Dubose and Bernstein reveal the disturbing truth about the man who has successfully co-opted executive control over the U.S. government, becoming the de facto "shadow president." Revelations include: the intimidation of CIA officials by a vice president bent on obtaining intelligence to support a foregone conclusion; Cheney's secret energy task force, including his meeting with Enron chief Ken Lay months before Lay was indicted; how Cheney helped to kill 2003 diplomatic overtures from Iran to discuss concessions on its nuclear program and policy toward Israel; Cheney's role in engineering multibillion-dollar military contracts in Iraq to benefit Halliburton, the company he once ran.--From publisher description

Boy genius : Karl Rove, the architect of George W. Bush's remarkable political triumphs by Carl M Cannon( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On November 2, 2004, a nation split straight down the middle went to the polls and elected George W. Bush to a second term as President of the United States. How did such a divided electorate produce more Republican votes than history had ever seen and a 51-48 percent victory for Bush - a president who, in his own words, has a history of being "misunderestimated." His chief political adviser, Karl Rove, suffers no such problem. Many attribute the president's successes, including the 2004 election, to Rove, and detect his influence in nearly everything the president does. From their earliest days in Texas, Rove has tapped the potential of George W. Bush. "Political hacks like me wait a lifetime for a guy like this to come along," Rove said of the future president. Now the brilliant tactician, whom Bush calls "Boy Genius," Texas legislators call "King Karl," and some call "Bush's Brain," has another four years in Washington to help the president spend his hard-earned political capital and to consolidate the Republican ascendancy that he helped mastermind. Cannon, who has covered Karl Rove more closely than any other Washington journalist, and the seasoned Texan reporters Dubose and Reid, join forces to unveil the man, his methods, and his plans for the Republican majority. The result is a compelling expose about the inner machinations of American politics today - and a riveting political biography of the Man Who Would Be Kingmaker. Rove has played politics to the highest level - and while, from allegations of bugging his own office back in Texas, to his murky dealings with the Swift Boat veterans in this year's election, his game is sometimes not pretty, he plays his cards extremely well and anyone interested in politics will be fascinated by this fair and revelatory investigation into the heart of our era's most effective political machine
