He may well be the 43rd president in the history of the United States, but before George W. Bush was sworn to uphold the most powerful position in Western politics, he was just a regular Texan -- or at least that's what he wants the world to believe. Now, through extended interviews with distant Bush relative (and recipient of the dreaded George W. sucker punch) Vernon Craig, the public finally has the opportunity to see the true George W. Bush. A wealthy and well-connected blueblood with ties to Yale University's elite and mysterious "Skull and Bones" organization, the George W. Bush that occupies the White House is a far cry from the simple, everyday outdoorsman portrayed in the mainstream media, and in this film, Craig offers a detailed account of Bush's rise to power as rarely seen by those living outside of our nation's capitol.
