    following confession We kept track not just of books read but also the number of pages and later the combined size of each book s pages its Total Lateral Area I m sure no one has yet described this practice as infantile though it merits such judgement Think of it the President of a once proud nation and the President s Senior Advisor measuring total lateral area It reminds me of when Thomas the Tank Engine raced against James to the wharf The chorus is marvellous Thomas and James are racing racing to the Wharf Everyone likes to be the first not second third or fourth Pistons pumping wildly boilers fit to burst There s something really special for the engine who comes first Rove does not mention why their respective tallies tailed off from 2006 Dubyah s 95 and 110 for Rove to 51 and 76 2007 before ending on a complacent 40 and 64 2008 respectively nor does he volunteer the composition of succeeding reading years whether there was a development of themes or return to first principles or even whether the fictional works were primarily comics or graphic novels It bears considering that there is no mention of Finance or Economics related titles nor titles that cover jurisprudence or religion Indeed it appears that Dubya s history background remains as his guiding Light As Richard Cohen observed The list Rove provides is long but it is narrow But Bush s books reflect a man who is seeking to learn what he already knows source The Washington Post Cohen is brutal in his damming indictment But the books themselves reveal actually confirm something about Bush that maybe Rove did not intend They are not the reading of a widely read man but instead the books of a man who seeks and sees vindication in every page While correct it is neither brutal nor damming enough Let s be clear on one thing the tomes of history that Bush Jr revisits and seeks justification from is best described as popular history hence the appearance of Rick Atkinson on the list and David King Hardly the most rigourous Indeed viewed from this perspective the most apposite ridiculing of Dubyah stems from within the very mirror that he has chosen Rove concludes that Mr Bush loves books learns from them and is intellectually engaged by them These words ring hollow This is Alan Brinkley reflecting on Jacob Weisberg s The Bush Tragedy The Bush whom Weisberg skillfully and largely convincingly portrays is a man who has rarely reflected who has almost never looked back and who has constructed a self image of strength courage and boldness that has little basis in the reality of his life He is driven less by bold vision than by a desire to get elected and settle scores less by real strength than by unfocused ambition and less by courage than by an almost passive acquiescence in disastrous plans that the people he empowered pursued in
