Former White House press secretary Fleischer offers a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most high profile positions in any administration and observations on bias in the media.

Former White House press secretary Fleischer offers a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most high profile positions in any administration and observations on bias in the media. Born into a Jewish liberal Democratic family in New York, he traces his personal journey to the Republican Party and the campaign and early administration of President Bush. He details private moments from the contentious 2000 presidential election when Bush declined to worry about the outcome to Bush's expressed desire for peace in the Middle East even as he fights against terrorism.

Fleischer was George W. Bush's Press Secretary from 2001 through 2003, facing the White House press daily through some of the most tumultuous times in American history including the aftermath of the bitterly contested 2000 election and of course September 11. This memoir of the time, which could have been a quickly-assembled hack job, is instead thoughtful and interesting.

2000 Election recounts, the 9/11 attacks, the wars of Afghanistan and Iraq and how White House press corps works.

Fleischer served as press secretary for Senator Pete Domenici from 1989 to 1994 and later spent five years as spokesman for the House Ways and Means Committee. Prior to joining the campaign of then Governor Bush in the fall of 1999, he served as communications director for Elizabeth Dole's presidential campaign.

Lawrence Ari Fleischer (born October 13, 1960) is an American media consultant and political aide who served as the twenty-first White House Press Secretary, for President George W. Bush, from January 2001 to July 2003. Today he works as a media consultant for the NFL, College Football Playoff, and other various sports organizations and players through his company, Ari Fleischer Communications. He was also an international media consultant to former Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper.

Ari Fleischer served as the White House Press Secretary from January 2001 until his resignation in July 2003-the culmination of a 21-year career in government and politics.

For two and a half years, Ari Fleischer served as the official liaison between the White House and members of the press, acting as the voice of President George W. Bush.

In Taking Heat, Fleischer goes behind-the-scenes in the West Wing, giving his perspectives on:

• September 11, 2001, its aftermath, and the anthrax scare • The pressure-filled buildup to the war in Iraq and the President's thoughts as the war began • The White House press corps, who they are, and how they report the news

Fleischer believes that the press has a bias in Washington -- It's not a question of partisanship or press driven ideology. It's a focus on conflict they can attach to the President. The White House press corps are masters of the devil's advocate. Fleischer's job was to calmly field their questions, no matter how pointed. He calls the press a tough, sharp, skeptical group. They call him tight-lipped and secretive. But at the end of the day, they had a bond.

Taking Heat is an introspective and analytical exploration of the major political events in the first half of the Bush administration, as well as the candid observations of a professional who stood in the bright lights of the world stage.

Comments to eBook Taking Heat CD: The President, the Press, and My Years in the White House
Reemiel
Ari Fleischer's memoir of service in the George W. Bush White House had the potential to tell a lot of colorful stories about a President who probably doesn't get all of the credit he deserves for his dignity and humility. Regrettably, the book instead reads too much like a long list of grievances against the White House press corps. Nearly an entire disc of the (abridged) audiobook is devoted to cataloging how "liberal" Fleischer perceives journalists to be. Putting aside any matter of the truth to that speculation (and broad characterizations of groups of people are just that -- speculative), it simply isn't flattering. Perhaps the book was written too soon after Fleischer left the job -- before sufficient time had passed to heal some raw wounds.

Atlanta, Georgia- Known as the spokesman for President Bush's first two years, Ari Fleischer in his book Taking Heat: The President, The Press, and My Years in the White House shares a candid insider's view of life in the bubble.
A native New Yorker Jew with liberal parents, Fleischer worked on Capitol Hill and for the fledging presidential campaign of Elizabeth Dole before being drafted to the Bush camp.
Besides simply liking George W. Bush, Fleischer believed he had a real shot at being elected President. Many of the Bushisms are not true. Bush is very hands on and ran a tight ship. He made a decision and stuck with it without second guessing himself.
The events of September 11 are very intriguing, he was there in the room when the President got word and traveled inside Air Force One as they tried to figure out what was going on. He paints the portrait of a compassionate President that led a nation during an uncertain time.
This book is a candid insider's view of the inner working of the White House and the nature of spin. As to why he left after two years, he was simply burned out and was ready to settle down with his new bride and start a family.
