Matt Lauer will interview Mr. Bush on a prime-time broadcast Nov. 8, one day before Mr. Bush’s book, “Decision Points,” is released by Crown Publishers. Mr. Lauer will interview Mr. Bush again live on the “Today” show, the country’s highest-rated morning show, on Nov. 10. It is easy to see why he and his cohorts would have done everything in their pernicious power to get their nefarious names and dastardly deeds off the telly and out of the papers for awhile! But now after two years of being out of office, he is still defending his views. Germany's justice minister found herself in hot water for saying that "Bush wants to divert attention from his domestic problems. It's a classic tactic. It's one that Hitler also used." She later denied that she had compared Bush to Hitler, but did say that their methods were similar. German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder was reelected but found himself in the bad graces of the U.S. for his own stance against a U.S. invasion of Iraq. Hitler was an expert at distracting his people's attention from their real problems and his own mistakes by dragging the red herrings of Red Jewry across his hell-bent trail of national destruction, and conjuring foes without to divert their attention from their much more serious affairs within.
