Top 10 Books President Bush Should Read on His Next Vacation

Ranked by the editors of HUMAN EVENTS.

10. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
This would be a good read before Bush has his next meeting with Republican congressmen who are desperately trying to distance themselves from him.

9. Reagan in His Own Hand edited by Kiron Skinner, Annelise Anderson and Martin Anderson
President Reagan was known not just for his remarkable speeches, but also for his ability to write well. He was able to clearly communicate his conservative beliefs because he truly believed them—they were a part of him.

8. Men in Black by Mark R. Levin
Bush has had two excellent Supreme Court nominees confirmed, but this book could immunize him against naming another Harriet Miers.

7. Godless: The Church of Liberalism by Ann Coulter
The greatest danger America faces is not the external Muslim threat but the internal moral terrorists destroying our culture and teaching people to blame the West for everything.

6. The Heritage Guide to the Constitution edited by Edwin Meese, Matthew Spalding and David Forte
In order to better protect and defend the Constitution during the last two years of his presidency, Bush needs to fully understand what our Founding Fathers put in there.

5. The Big Ripoff by Timothy P. Carney
Big-government conservatism is an oxymoron, and government regulation and programs usually help the sharks at the expense of the guppies.

4. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) by Robert Spencer
The President has learned a lot since his statements immediately after the 9-11 attacks that “Islam is peace.” Spencer’s book could teach him a few more things.

3. The Quotable Calvin Coolidge by Calvin Coolidge and Peter Hannaford
Everyone would profit from reading the words of this conservative President who opposed big government and signed the 1924 Immigration Act, limiting the number of immigrants per nation of origin.

2. On Classical Economics by Thomas Sowell
President Bush obviously understands the “supply side” of conservative economic theory, but he could use a refresher course on the rest of it.

1. State of Emergency by Patrick Buchanan
If the U.S. does not enforce its borders and immigration law, we will not be able to withstand the onslaught of multiculturalism combined with mass immigration that is sure to come.
