Folks, I would be less than honest if I said I wasn’t excited about this book. Like my earlier book, Louisiana Rocks: The True Genesis of Rock & Roll, this work is the result of years of research—eight years, in fact, for that’s the length of His reign of error as Louisiana’s largely absentee governor.
Even as he raised his right hand to take the oath of office way back in 2007, he already had his focus firmly fixed on what he somehow assumed in his narcissistic temperament was his ultimate destiny: POTUS. Family members in attendance that day, in fact, were overheard already discussing that very destiny as though karma already ruled the day.
But it didn’t happen—and it won’t. Not this year, not in 2020, not ever. Try as he might to convince voters otherwise, he simply doesn’t have the creds, the cojones, to play with the big boys. He fooled Louisiana’s voters—twice. Elevating his game to the national stage and pulling the hat trick is another proposition altogether.
That’s what the book is about: his disastrous programs, his bull-headed dogma, his disdain for voters who he seemed to feel were beneath him once he won “the only job he ever wanted.” Yes, he even lied about that, not that a single person believed it for a nano-second. We all knew he was wanted to run for president in the worst way—and he certainly did.
To borrow a line from Kris Kristofferson’s The Pilgrim:
He’s a walkin’ contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction
Takin’ every wrong direction on his lonely way back home
He first ran in 2003 but lost when Protestant voters in North Louisiana (who, ironically, would embrace him in 2007 and 2011) rejected him. So, he ran for Congress in 2004, running in a Congressional district that included mostly white conservative Republican Jefferson Parish even though his official residence was in Baton Rouge. He won that election and was re-elected in 2006 before capturing the governor’s office the following year.
While we do touch on those three years in Congress, during which time he mysteriously increased his net worth to the status of millionaire, it is those wretched years as governor on which we devoted most of the book.
So, if you are one of those who love electronic books, get your order in now.
If you prefer a book you can hold in your hands (as I do) and you would like a copy signed personally to you by me, click on the book cover’s image to the right and place your order with Cavalier House Books of Denham Springs.
Cavalier House Books is about three blocks from my home and when your copy comes in, he will call me and I will dutifully hop on my bicycle and ride up to this store and sign your copy before he mails it to you.
I recommend this for two reasons: John Cavalier, who, along with his wife Michelle, owns the store, built the LouisianaVoice blog page as a favor to me and his is the only advertisement LouisianaVoice accepts on our Web page. Just as he did not charge me for building our blog page, I do not charge him for the advertising.
The other reason is I am a strong supporter of mom and pop businesses in general. I strongly urge you to support their bookstore by ordering your signed copy from Cavalier House Books.
