A chronicle of the life and presidency of George W. Bush.

Told in a non-linear fashion, the adult life of George W. Bush is presented, from his days in college to the end of his first term as US President. Issues presented include not being able to find his way in his early adult life but knowing that he wanted to have something to do with baseball despite not being a good enough player to make it into the majors, and concurrently with the Presidency of his father, George Bush, becoming a born again Christian with the "voice of God" directing him to do things, such as run for Texas Governor despite showing no interest in politics beforehand, run for US President, and as President direct the invasion of Iraq on the tenuous intel of Saddam Hussein possessing weapons of mass destruction. That latter move was on the outward goal of homeland and global security without a mention to the public of the goal of oil security, and making this decision on his simplistic black and white view of the world that "you are either with us (the good guys) or against us (the bad guys)". Arguably the overriding issue in his life is his difficult relationship with both his parents, but most specifically his father, as W. was his father's namesake, but it was W.'s younger brother Jeb Bush who seemed to be following naturally in their father's footsteps and as such treated as the favored son.
