Overview


Look at the polls today and you might think President Bush is a failure. The media is relentlessly hostile to him. His party lost both houses of Congress in the 2006 election. And yet...and yet, his presidency could be one of the most important in modern times. George W. Bush not only faced an unprecedented attack on the American homeland, but he also responded with an ambitious effort to remake the world -- an effort being fought in Afghanistan and Iraq and in smaller skirmishes around the globe, an effort that for all its setbacks still might succeed, with revolutionary consequences. New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed White House reporter Bill Sammon is a true insider, and in his new book, The Evangelical President, he offers a snapshot of the Bush administration from winter 2005 to summer 2007. This momentous time mixed triumph and disaster-from the triumph of the successful tracking and killing of Al Qaeda's terrorist mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and the spectacularly successful Iraqi elections, to the disaster of the subsequent unraveling in Iraq and American voters' repudiation of Bush in the congressional elections of 2006. But through it all, Sammon shows that President Bush took the high road, fighting to spread moral democracy around the world while the low-minded press focused on Vice President Cheney's accidental shooting of a friend while hunting and Virginia senator George Allen's use of the word macaca on the campaign trail. In this far-reaching book, Sammon details:
* Why Bush believes the Republicans will hold the White House in 2008-and his candid assessment of Barack Obama

* Why the Supreme Court's ruling on the partial-birth abortion ban was a victory and vindication for Bush

* Why Bush is determined to press ahead with his policy in Iraq, despite his party's loss in Congress

* Why Bush has offered advice to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton

* How the media has continuously underestimated President Bush, mocking him for his faith and ignoring his achievements.

The Evangelical President is an unforgettable glimpse of a President at war, supported by an evangelical belief that tyranny should be overthrown, democracy supported, and America defended, combined with a steely stubbornness to see those goals through.
