After two years of laying low, former President George W. Bush came out with a bang this week, with the release of his memoir, “Decision Points.” While the world has been focusing on Bush’s take on the Iraq war, weapons of mass destruction, the use of waterboarding and Hurricane Katrina, today we want to discuss what the memoir means in the context of the Republican surge in the past election. Is the book about the past Bush administration, or is it laying the ground for another Bush generation to take back the White House in the future?

Joining us is Russ Baker, award-winning journalist and author of “Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government, and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years.” He explains how the former president is using the book to rally the Republican base, and remind them that the Bush family is still a force to be reckoned with.
