The Author and the Inaugural Speech

Posted on January 27, 2005

How's this for a book blurb: "If you want a glimpse of how I think about foreign policy, read Natan Sharansky's book." --President George W. Bush. Yes, that's our president blurbing a book.

President Bush has declared that he has been greatly influenced by Israeli politician and fomer Soviet prisoner Natan Sharanksy's autobiography and foreign policy polemic, The Case for Democracy: The Power of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny & Terror (Public Affairs) and anyone who heard the presidential inaugural address knows that this is one book blurb where the blurber actually read the book.

So, for anyone who longs to get inside the Commander in Chief's head, this is clearly the title to read.
