New Book by Former NBC Producer Warns Republican Policies Are Recipe for Disaster
The Romney / Ryan Ticket advocates the same failed Bush Administration policies that plunged the nation into war in Iraq and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, according to James Gannon, former NBC producer and writer, and author of the new book, "The Reckless Presidency of George W. Bush."
As the U.S. approaches the 2012 presidential election on November 6, 'Reckless Presidency' provides voters with sobering insights into how Bush Administration deceit lured the nation into an unnecessary war with Iraq, leaving more than 4,400 American troops dead and 32,000 wounded. Despite Romney's efforts to ignore Bush on the campaign trail, the same neocon advisors are pressing him to take a hard line to head off a nuclear Iran. The potential parallels with Bush of a Romney / Ryan Administration are too grave to ignore.
"If we fail to learn from our past, reckless Bush could easily become reckless Romney with next month's election," said Gannon. "I urge all conscientious voters to take heed from my book before casting their ballots."
The book also blames Bush's negligence for 9/11 and details the shameful Bush Administration torture policy that Romney's advisors have urged him to adopt. On the domestic side, 'Reckless Presidency' covers tax cuts that helped turn a budget surplus into crushing debt, censorship of government climate scientists, the partial privatization of Medicare (and the attempted privatization of Social Security), and the deregulation that helped bring on the Great Recession. Romney supports these same failed policies that brought America to the brink under Bush.
"The Reckless Presidency of George W. Bush" is available as an e-book ($8.99 U.S.) or paperback ($16.95 U.S.) through online retailers and bookstores nationwide including Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Powell's, and more.
