a minute. what is-- what was your relationship with george w. bush? guest: it was good in the beginning. i had an interview with him when he first announce and he liked me because i had given barbara bush a good review in the "new york times" for cash for her memoir which was really fun. barbara is very sort of highly and so it was fine at first, but then unfortunately, i think he went down a very bad path with the rock and came under the sway of the man-- i think i was the first to dub dick cheney darth vader, but then he began, himself that probably and now steve bannon calls himself that, so i think the relationship with all of the press corps got more tense as the kind of, you know, had fake news about the iraq war. host: maureen dowd, in november 2008, and this is in the book "the year of voting dangerously" you write about the white house. how can such a lovely house makes so many of its inhabitants-- [inaudible] guest: a lot of my friends are really hysterical about the trumpet presidency and one of my girlfriends who is a health nut said to me my gosh, i'm having a gla

the dragnet tools to do surveillance and all these things. i found when george w. bush left the white house people asiewmented the patriot act had gone away. people were telling me what does the aclu have to do now? couldn't grow out of business and saying mission accomplished? the patriot act is very much with us. the current events i actually one thing i hope we can talk about. i think there might be some prospect for change. >> where? >> guest: one thing that happened. i started writing this weak in the -- book in the middle of barack obama's first term. at that time, people didn't understand that obama continued bush's policy. the surveillance and everything we were doing domestically. and so linda greenhouse referred my book to the wake-up call. people didn't wake up that much. people were not looking to re-examine the decisions that had been made in the fall of 2001 about what our antiterrorism strategies should be. so what i would say is there was a snooze alarm. and the wake-up call came with snowden. when he started releasing documents about what actually is going on be

social media. i also have this george w. bush library jacket, i love to wear it, and i sought shepard smithin in the elevator a year ago and he said wow, you love him. i do and i love to wear it around. i think people do a double take once in a while. there are more republicans and conservatives in big cities than you think. they are just quite about it. >> speech speaking of which, george w. bush has a new book out. >> i'm so excited. >> he has undertaken a project over the past couple of years where he is finishing painting a portrait of 98 wounded warriors who served under his command. it's a a very emotional and moving tribute to these men and women and a very personal way, it has not been done in the history of the world. that book will come out in february and i hope that book tv has a chance to talk to them. >> i hope so as well. linda, go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: hi dana, i'm a gung ho dog lover and i never miss your show. congratulations. you are just real big and everybody's eyes, including mine. >> guest: thank you so much. you have a question

back to the election of 2000 between george w. bush and al gore. if al gore had won that election, al gore would have probably had the afghanistan war because of 9/11, which happened the following september but would not have invaded iraq. so my point is, isn't it true that because of the republicans and george w. bush -- i'm saying that's as a liberal progressive democrat myself -- that george w. bush's invasion of iraq, as here able as a dictator as saddam hussein was, at least having saddam hussein in iraq, kept that as a stable country without isis emerging. so is the iraqi war had not happened and if george w. bush and dick cheney had not invade iraq or al gore had won, there was no iraq war, would there be -- >> host: all right, bill, we government the point. that's bill in connecticut. >> guest: that a really good question, and as a journalist i try to avoid putting political labels on it, but the book argues and i strongly believe that the iraq invasion was really the original sin. not just the invasion itself which gave the jihaddists this cause they'd been looking for, parti

early on he empowers them. having his influence is because george bush gives in this influence to me in power some. in cheney to is pushing in a direction that bush is inclined to go anyway. is only later that he begins to start whistling elisabeth the notion that cheney is in charge. by the 2004 re-elect he offers a drop off the ticket. and bush thinks about it. he gives it a few weeks and comes up with the name of someone who might take his place . and on other reasons he says he is thinking of doing it is because it will show who is really in charge. you begin to see, he has begun to resent the notion that somehow he, the president, is now really in charge of his own administration. >> nextel sherry in dayton beach -- daytona beach florida. >> hi. november 2001 bush overturned the 1978 presidential records act. he signed an executive order permanently flaunting from the public of presidential documents and tapes going back to the reagan ministration. many in congress called this measure for secrecy unconstitutional. my question is, after bush left office, are those presidential re

else my hope whole career. you could ask me what george w. bush thought about the war of the financial crisis or legalization of marijuana and i could tell you what he thought or how he came to a decision. i knew how he came to that decision. i would say i largely agreed with it. then i get to be on the five and all of a sudden it's like what you think about the legalization of marijuana.. i kind of choked because i had never gone out on that limb before. i really give credit to the fox news executives who gave me a chance in my cohost who were instrumental in helping me know that it was okay to be myself. i think i also worry that if ive my own opinion i could never go back to doing spokesperson work because then people would know and i was worried about that. i remember finally, eight months into it, and relaxed and that i don't want to go back to that. i like this like this new caree path that i'm on. i finally got a little more comfortable but still, if you give your opinion, you are you are the target of criticism.m. before, the target of criticism was somebody i worked for thatat

president george h.w. bush, somebody you worked with and knew. in 1992, here's what you wrote: as president, mr. bush reverted to his behavior as vice president. he stopped seeing the connection between words and action. he did not communicate. i used to wonder if traumatized by what he saw as the reagan white house's too great attention to the public part of the presidency, to the rose garden backdrops and the come enemy a testify event -- commemorative event, he concluded the public show was not worthy of a sincere and honest man. >> guest: i think there was a little to that. i think vice president george h.w. bush watched ronald reagan very closely, and drew a surprising conclusion from president reagan's insistence on going forward, leading in a clear way, putting his emphasis on speaking, after all he didn't invade the soviet union, she just spoke the truth to and about the soviet union. so to reagan, the public part of the presidency was more than symbolic. it was deeply informational and part of his leadership. i think vice president-then bush looked at and it saw it more o
