When we consider that he left the White House in the midst of two wars and the worst financial collapse in eight decades, it’s no small feat that in Decision Points George W. Bush (along with a former speechwriter named Chris Michel who assisted him) manages to sustain his sense of himself as a decisive, well-meaning commander in chief in a time of crisis. Big surprise: Bush 43 isn’t into remorse. He also isn’t given to brooding or wondering about what might have happened had he chosen other policies or advisers.
