Boy Genius by Lou Dubose

Book Description

The Washington Post Bestseller - Now Updated with Five New Chapters and a New Epilogue Unlike President George. W. Bush, Karl Rove, his chief political adviser, is rarely "misunderestimated." Many of the president's opponents see Rove's hand in everything the president does. His friends, and the president himself, are just thankful he's on their side, and always has been. From their earliest days in Texas, Rove saw and 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. The authors of Boy Genius fill readers in on the man, his methods, and his plans for the Republican majority for a fascinating, entertaining look at the Man Who Would be Kingmaker, an investigation that debunks myths as it reveals facts, and the story of exactly how American politics works now. From allegations of bugging his own office back in Texas, to shadowy dealings with Swift Boat veterans in the last election, Rove has played politics all the way to the highest levels, and though it sometimes isn't pretty, it works.

Bill of Wrongs by Lou Dubose Bill of Wrongs, Paperback / softback (October 2008)

Until her death in January 2007, Ivins made at least one speech a month for no fee in defense of the Bill of Rights. During her travels, she met ordinary people going to extraordinary measures to protect their rights, and, in this book, she celebrates their courage and accomplishments.

Vice by Lou Dubose Vice, Hardback (October 2006)

Dick Cheney is an unpopular vice president in American history. This book talks about this man who has successfully co-opted executive control over the US government, serving as the de facto 'shadow president' of the most dominant White House in a generation. It also chronicles and exposes the hijacking of the American presidency.
