A academic, methodical approach towards analyzing Bush's neo-conservative policy on the pre-emption. Very useful.

2. B&N website has more info ....

George W. Bush has launched a revolution in American foreign policy. He has redefined how America engages the world, shedding the constraints that friends, allies, and international institutions impose on its freedom of action. He has insisted that an America unbound is a more secure America.
How did a man once mocked for knowing little about the world come to be a foreign policy revolutionary? In America Unbound, Ivo H. Daalder and James M. Lindsay dismiss claims that neoconservatives have captured the heart and mind of the president. They show that George W. Bush has been no ones puppet. He has been a strong and decisive leader with a coherent worldview that was evident even during the 2000 presidential campaign.

Daalder and Lindsay caution that the Bush revolution comes with significant risks. Raw power alone is not enough to preserve and extend Americas security and prosperity in the modern world. The United States often needs the help of others to meet the challenges it faces overseas. But Bushs revolutionary impulse has stirred great resentment abroad. At some point, Daalder and Lindsay warn, Bush could find that Americas friends and allies refuse to follow his lead. America will then stand alonea great power unable to achieve its most important goals.

3. They've captured his heart and mind but he's not a puppet?
It's old fashioned greed and power-mongering colonialism...why give it any sort of paint job?

4. When is someone...
When is someone going to simply ask the question: What exactly are the successes of the Bush regime??

We have an education program that gets no funding and leaves schools to open only 4 days a week.

We have an energy program that produces no extra energy and makes no long term provisions.

We have an environmental policy that destroys the environment.

We have a foreign policy that prefers dismissive backhanded remarks and missiles to diplomacy.

We have an economic stimulus package that doesn't stimulate the economy.

We have a proposed health care package that is going to leave thousands of elderly un- or under-insured.

We have a national security program that has made it more and more likely that someone will want to attack us.

We have distanced our friends, enraged our enemies, and ignored those who would pose a legitimate threat to our safety (North Korea).

In all seriousness, someone PLEASE explain to me what can be considered a success of this administration.
