National Public Radio (NPR), Tuesday, November 9, 2010

During a discussion of former President, George W. Bush’s new autobiography, Decision Points, and other presidential autobiographies, Presidential Historian, Michael Beschloss (who had not yet read Mr. Bush’s autobiography at the time of the conversation), said that usually presidential autobiographies are not very good, that generally there is a low bar.

A low bar is a track and field idiom, a bar that is easy to jump over, a high bar the opposite in the high jump and pole vault events
