Storyline

George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, had a storybook life before arriving in office via a contentious 2000 election. Many Americans, however, are unaware of who, or more importantly, what, Bush pretends not to be: a very wealthy, extremely well-connected northeastern Yankee blueblood. Fortunately, six months prior to the 2004 election, documentary filmmaker Marc Berlin discovered someone who did know these things: Vernon Craig. Distantly related to the Bush's, and victim of a Dubya sucker-punch outside a New Haven bar in 1968, Craig agreed to be interviewed about his extensive knowledge of, and connection to, the Bush-Walker dynasty. Guiding us to those elite places and institutions which played a role in forming George W.'s right-wing politics--from the sprawling Walker estate in Kennebunkport to Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts and finally the ivied walls of Yale University and Skull and Bones--Vernon Craig, "The Man Who Knew Bush", wryly explains what ...

Its decent but extremely slow

Its a slow story but gives you a feel of what growing up in New England around ivy league prep-schools and the influential people they create in American society. There is a divide in the American Northeast primarily between the upper educated class and the working blue collar class (the basis of "Good Will Hunting")so I found it interesting to see how kids are groomed to be part of the American ruling class.

If you like American history and don't mind listening to someone ramble then its actually educational and somewhat interesting. Play it in the background and you might learn a few things from it but by no means is is captivating or unique.
