The American Spectator's R. Emmett Tyrrell on the book he expects George W. Bush to write:

My agents report that President George W. Bush even now is contemplating memoirs....

His memoirs will be the record of a president whose time in office began and ended with two stupendous crises....

Both of his crises originated in his predecessor's administration. His memoirs must make that clear. In fact, it is his duty to set the record straight. Gentleman that he is, Mr. Bush is going to have to find the right tone in laying out that fact. He must not appear to be defensive or to be scapegoating.

Oh, OK, I see -- Bush should blame Clinton for the horrible things that happened on his own watch.

But not in a scapegoating way.

Right. Got it.
