Bush bio outsells Clinton's

President George W. Bush's recently released memoir,"Decision Points"
...has sold an astonishing two million copies since it was released in early November-and it's not even in paperback yet....published in both hardcover and e-book form, (the book) is flying off the shelves, the Crown Publishing Group says.

By contrast, former president Bill Clinton;s memoir, "My Life," has logged sales of 2.2 million copies since it was first published in 2004.

President Bush remains nearly universally vilified by the nattering nabobs of our liberal media intelligentsia: what could explain the public snapping up more copies of W's memoirs in a month than Bill Clinton (who has always been the object of media adoration) was able to peddle in over 6 years?

Out beyond the reach of the liberal spin machine running 24/7 in our education, media and entertainment industries lies an intelligent, largely conservative populace, bone-weary of the propaganda machine and the progressive failures it supports. That conservative base turned to the alternative media long prior to the run-up to the 2010 mid-term elections and relied upon it for inspiration and information vital to making the correct voting decisions. President Bush's memoirs at long last provide an unvarnished narrative of his service as an effective Commander-in-Chief minus the bullying, belittling and ankle-biting of the Lilliputian liberal media.

Books like "Decision Points," Mark Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny" and the works of Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck help provide the ideological bulwark for our modern Tea Party movement. Welcome to the alternative media and congratulations on the success of your memoir, Mr. President. May you sell 10 million more!
