The Bush man cometh

That well known intellect, the man who Paul McCartney implied didn't know where the White House Library was, is to open the Miami Book fair in November -
The 43rd president of the United States will open the 27th edition of Miami Book Fair International at 4 p.m. Nov. 14 to speak about his upcoming memoir, Decision Points.

Bush's appearance ``speaks to the prestige we've been able to garner all these years,'' said Alina Interián, executive director of the Florida Center for the Literary Arts. ``. . . It's quite timely so soon after the elections.''

Bush is not the first member of the former first family to appear at the fair. Daughter Jenna presented her book Ana's Story in 2007, and his sister Doro Bush Koch appeared at the fair in 2006 with her memoir My Father, My President.
The fair runs from Nov. 14-21 at Miami Dade College's Wolfson campus in downtown Miami.

Visitors to the fair are certainly in for a treat when Bush speaks - check the man out in action below

What a fiasco that ought to be. Bush Jr. was an incompetent, repeatedly scandalized president who filled government positions with political cronies, rather than people who were qualified for the jobs. His lies about Iraq led the United States into a prolonged war. And now people want to hear what he thinks about the world? Hah! They'd be better off listening to a tube sock declaim on national and international affairs.

Cheers,
Jeff
