The Acting President Paperback – July 30, 1990. This is a great book, especially now, when the Republican party is so intent on rewriting history and trying to pass off Ronald Reagan as such a good President. He was good at protraying a President, but really, what with Reaganomics, not such a good one. I myself consider him to be one of the worst as far as the AIDS victims are concerned. Good read, need to be reminded of how it really was, not how some in our country seem to "dream" it was.

CBS correspondent Schieffer and his collaborator set the tone with a rueful subtitle. In their view, Reagan was a decidedly detached Chief Executive whose Hollywood training made him amenable to direction, if not manipulation. Unfortunately, Schieffer and Gates conclude, not all the President's men were reading from the stone script; indeed, deep ideological differences divided them, and they waged fierce internecine battles for their leaders attention and favor.

Bob Schieffer and Gary Paul Gates, The Acting President (New York: E. P. Dutton, 1989), 374. 15. The point that Reagan knew only vaguely what his aides did is not necessarily inaccurate. Speaking of the Evil Empire, Gaddis wrote in Foreign Affairs in 1994: Now that they are free to speak-and act-the people of the former Soviet Union appear to have associated themselves more closely with President Reagan’s famous indictment of that state as an ‘evil empire’ than with more balanced academic assessments.

Alongside Gary Paul Gate, he co-wrote The Acting President, a book about Ronald Reagan. He has a brother Tom Schieffer who became US Ambassador to Japan from 2005 to 2009 and a sister Sharon Schieffer Mayes, an educationist. He won several awards throughout his career including eight Emmy Awards and the Paul White Award. Bob Schieffer received education from North Side High School and later at the Texas Christian University (TCU). While in TUC, he joined the Air Force Officer Training Corps and was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. In 2013, the College of Communication at TCU was renamed in his honor.

Great book. He is fairly scathing in his review of the Reagan administration but it's a fast read by one of our nation's few remaining respectable journalists.

From Library Journal:

For national TV correspondent Schieffer and his co-author, the story of the Reagan presidency is the story of his advisors--their opinions, policies, schemes, intrigues, and misdeeds--not Ronald Reagan's leadership or vision. Reagan was a disengaged, passive president to whom decision making and policy making meant hiring experts and following their advice. This environment was ripe for misadventures such as the Iran-contra scandal, where aides, in Reagan's name, made national policy, unchecked and unmanaged. The authors speculate that perhaps Reagan was too lazy or too content and satisfied a man to exercise leadership and manage his presidency. But they also recognize that most Americans have forgiven Reagan for any shortcomings since he entertained them and demanded neither sacrifices nor great efforts. Recommended for most libraries.

I read this book and found it incredibly interesting! They did not portray Ronald Reagan as an idiot, he was an idea man but had no idea how to implement. He sold it! That was his job and that is what he was incredibly good at -America loved him. He had people to do the other stuff. At that time, I guess things were bad enough America needed a little of that. I did not agree with some of the things that went on though beginning with what they did to President Carter -holding the announcement about the hostages being released until after Reagan took the oath of office, even though they had been released earlier that morning. That was dirty. Anyway, this is an excellent book. It's not dry, or boring. It's not technical or hard to understand but it is full of details in an easy to understand format! I started taking notes in the front and back margins of the book! I am going to try another one of Bob Schieffer's books.

In a land where Ronald Reagan was worshipped as if he were the 13th apostle, this book was a beacon of honesty. He was a retired actor who wanted to be president & once he got there had no idea what to do. It was controversial in it's time & still interesting today.

This book would have you believe that President Reagan was nothing but a bumbling idiot with no plan for America who just went along with whatever his staff told him he should do. The fact is that Reagan outlined his intentions well before he ever became President, and made those intentions a reality. This book isn't even worth the penny that it's selling for.
