Bush Family Fortunes: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy is a documentary about former president George W. Bush and the impact of his family on our nation. Directed by Steven Grandison and Greg Palast, the film begins by examining the public's perception of President Bush as a war hero. An interview with former fighter pilot Bill White reveals how Bush was able to keep himself out of the draft and insinuates that his family was also involved in keeping him from military action. The documentary also discusses the 2000 Presidential Election and seeks to explain what happened in Florida. Accusing Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris of playing a large role in the purging of 94,000 ballots, the film asks serious questions about why those individuals' names were erroneously placed on a list of felons. Bush Family Fortunes: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy also examines the monetary contributions to Bush's presidential campaign, his family's involvement in the oil industry and the events leading up to the Iraq War.moreless
