Reviews - What do customers think about We Will Prevail: President George W. Bush on War, Terrorism and Freedom?
Bush on War, Terrorism, and Freedom... Mar 7, 2008
2003's "We Will Prevail" is a compendium of President George Bush's public speeches in the first two years of the Global War On Terrorism. Put together by National Review, it features minimal commentary in the form of a short foreword by Peggy Noonan and an equally short introduction by Jay Nordlinger, both veteran Republican speech-writers.
Bush's controversial presidency won't get a serious non-partisan review for years, if not decades. A quick scan of the reviews associated with this book indicates the huge span of current opinion. Only time will tell whether Bush's policies will ultimately work for the best. Nevertheless, the speeches captured here will be a resource for future biographers, some of whom may decide that Bush was a more effective public speaker than he is usually given credit for being.
Too Many Little Dots Aug 29, 2007
At the risk of stating the obvious, it is a collection of George Bush's speeches, radio addresses, and appearances as president from post 9/11 until publication. It focuses on terrorism, American achievement and mystique, and above all, fear.
These speeches represent a departure from presidents in the past. A classic opposite was FDR who said that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Bush takes the unhealthy approach of reminding us that we should be fearful of terrorists, terrorism, and the ultimate need to be vigilant, and that under his leadership, we will be victorious.
In trying to present the best side of Mr. Bush, the editors have gone out of their way to remove the gaffes, gaffows and winces that have made his fans characterize him as a good ol' boy, and made his detractors wince in embarassment that he his the president.
And then there's the speeches. Just when you expect Bush to tell us that the best way to fight terrorism is to go to an old age home, to put your arms around someone and them that you love them, there are these dots, these little ellipses. Just when you are hoping to read that he wants OB/GYN doctors to be able to spread their love to women around the country, there are even more dots. There are too many little dots. There are usually four of them which means the edit goes to the end of the sentence. This is the equivalent of seeing a movie of salty language with its word substitutes on regular television. "Forget you too!" just doesn't seem to have the power as the original, unedited phrase.
I recommend this for Bush admirers only. Do not expect to find anything profound as you would in Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, FDR's or JFK's speeches. There is nothing memorable here, just a mediocre speaker trying his damndest to make Americans afraid.
The only thing you have to fear from this book is....
Sunset scribblings by one left in the weeds. Jan 22, 2006
I understand that the Dept of Defence has raised the age for joining the US Army to 39. By the time this President "prevails" I expect to see the joining age somewhere around 65. A directionless voyage into the rudderless meanderings of what once was a great country.
I don't know about that ... Dec 7, 2005
If this guy is so into the survival, or, as he would say, the "prevalation" of America, how come you can carry scissors on airplanes again? Is he so sure it's just high-income Republican-voting ladies who HAVE to cut their nails enroute? What's to stop some more gangs from our Saudi ally from taking over an airliner? And how come you can STILL bring containerized freight into just about any American port, unchecked? In spite of what (Republican) Mr. Kean may say about it? How come this prevalator has allowed Alqaeda to enter Iraq? That little stinker, Saddam Hussein (his daddy's ally), had been doing a pretty good job at keeping them out. And how come the Pakistanis STILL have the "Islamic Bomb"? Who do you think that bomb is going to be used on? I don't know how free we'll be, with George "Patriot Act" Bush Jr. around, but Little George sure has a different idea of how to "prevalate" than anybody I ever met.
Don't waste your money Nov 20, 2005
I can't believe I wasted my money on this book. It's exactly what you'd expect. Copy/paste any of his speeches and you can make the same book.
