Rebel in Chief: Inside the Bold and Controversial Presidency of George W. Bush

Thursday February 2006


Fred Barnes Executive Editor, The Weekly Standard

For decades conservatives have focused primarily on reducing the size of government. President Bush’s legacy, however, has gone well beyond this traditional conservative agenda to embrace an aggressive new portfolio of government reforms and restructuring that promises to have a profound impact on how Washington works for generations to come.

Fred Barnes will show how President Bush is anything but a typical conservative and detail how he has challenged the Washington establishment to push through an agenda that is redefining the conservative movement, creating a new Republican majority, and changing the political landscape in America and the world.

Based on exclusive interviews with President Bush himself, Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, political adviser Karl Rove, and other key administration figures, Barnes will provide us with a new look at how Bush conducts business and why he has chosen a path of political risky reform.
