Mr. Wead said he recorded the conversations because he viewed Mr. Bush as a historic figure, but he said he knew that the president might regard his actions as a betrayal. As the author of a new book about presidential childhoods, Mr. Wead could benefit from any publicity, but he said that was not a motive in disclosing the tapes."Might regard his actions as a betrayal"...I'd say that's a given. Publicity for his new book "not a motive"? So he's a scumbag and a liar.

With friends like Doug Wead...
From 1998 until just before accepting the Republican nomination for President in 2000, George W. Bush turned to an old family friend for advice. That friend, Doug Wead secretly taped these conversations and now has played many of them for the New York Times.
