Dead Presidents

Historical facts, thoughts, ramblings and collections on the Presidency and about the Presidents of the United States.

By Anthony Bergen

I’m only halfway through it, but I highly recommend Robert Draper’s new book, Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives (BOOKKINDLE).  It is a revealing look at the House of Representatives during this infuriating 112th Congress that took office in January 2011.  Draper is a first-rate political reporter and his book on George W. Bush’s Administration, Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush (BOOKKINDLE) was just as good as this latest release.  I’ve had a hard time pulling myself away from Do Not Ask What Good We Do since I started reading it this afternoon.  It’s out now from Free Press and I definitely suggest checking it out.
