The George W Bush Years Hardcover – November 1, 2007
by Vadot Nicolas (Author)
George W Bush mistook Slovakia for Slovenia, thought the inhabitants of Greece were called Greekians and didn’t know the name of Pakistan’s Prime Minister. And to him Bin Laden was probably an East-German car brand. Nevertheless, as months went by, he made a lot of progress in geopolitics, realising for instance that the Afghan mountains were packed with people like him, therefore he wasn’t the only religious fundamentalist on Earth. Of course, after eight years in power, he still has trouble distinguishing a Shiite from a Sunni, a Kurd or even a European. However, what he does now know is that on other side of the Atlantic Ocean, on the right hand side of Britain, lies an Old Continent, full of pacifist beatniks who speak several languages and who have all abolished the death penalty. In other words: true savages. He can still hardly tell the difference between a nice little morning breeze and a devastating hurricane and doesn’t know what a weapon of mass destruction really looks like, but he’s eager to fill the gaps in his general knowledge during his third term. What?? He can’t run for a third term?? What a pity.. In the George W Bush Years cartoonist Nicholas Vadot has drawn his take on George Dubbya in a series of hilarious cartoons that track the years of one of the most controversial American presidents ever.

“The Georse W. Bush Years” is both instructive and very amusing. The events which occurred during the period 2001 to 2007, the details of which are beginning to fade from memory, are set out in a matter-of-fact way in captions. Each caption is accompanied by one or more cartoons relating to the event described. The cartoons are witty and pointed. They seldom miss their mark. GWB, usually depicted in a helmet sporting the sign “Speak Slowly,” comes in for a lot of ribbing, but so do other leaders, like Ahmadinejad, Blair and Bin Laden. I would highly recommend this book.
