A candidate of vague speeches and an ambiguous platform, Bush leads the pack of GOP 2000 presidential hopefuls; "Dubya" could very well be our next president. Don't be fooled by the whimsical name of Molly Ivan's book. Written during the 2000 presidential campaign, finished before George W. Bush was "elected," Shrub provides some fascinating information about our current President's political and business track record.
Political columnist Molly Ivins is well-known as a "liberal gadfly" in Texas, and so it's hardly surprising that her political biography of George W. Bush paints an unrelentingly unflattering picture of Dubya. However, in critiquing the accomplishments (or lack of same) of George the Younger, Ivins writes with grace and wit, and without undue rancor toward her political opponent. She lets the facts speak for themselves. The result is a highly readable, entertaining, and yet clearly disturbing book.

Youthful political reporters are always told there are three ways to judge a politician," write Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose in Shrub. The first is to look at the record. The second is to look at the record. And third, look at the record. The record under scrutiny in this brief, informative book belongs to one George W. Bush-dubbed "Shrub" by Ivins-governor of Texas and 2000 presidential hopeful.
Molly Ivins, Lou Dubose. Molly Tyler Ivins was a no-bullshit Texan who took George W. Bush to task over and over for his lies, dissembling and spin. She held a spotlight to his record. Online bookstores carrying Shrub: The Short but Happy Political Life of George W.
By Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose. 179 pp. 'If you think his daddy had trouble with 'the vision thing,' wait till you meet this one,'' they allow in one of the book's better lines. The book mostly covers Bush's record as governor, which the authors reminds us is a problematic yardstick in itself because Texas governors have a bully pulpit but not much more. Even so, they find his record less than inspiring, concluding that Bush's ''compassionate conservative'' line gets it exactly half right.
