Bravo to authors Bowyer and Kudlow for creating the first political book I've seen this season that is at once honest enough, well researched enough, and also well written enough that it can target an audience that stretches far beyond the usual policy wonks and think tankers. The authors somehow manage to be angry and sensible at the same time, no easy trick.
Yes, of course, the authors have an agenda. But anyone who thinks it is a simple "pro-Bush" agenda is looking at it too simply. In this book the authors look at policy with an extremely critical but fair eye -- exactly what the fourth estate is supposed to be doing. Thank goodness someone is still doing his job.

People who are looking through this section should
read through the 1-star reviews.
Many of them appear to be written by angry 12-year-olds.
I have never seen such bile and immaturity like that which thrives in today's left-wing atmosphere of hate.
I try to have an open mind and try to understand the alternative views, but the Krugman-driven wackos of today that I meet are like parrots. They usually can't think very clearly and are so determined that they're right that conversation is useless.
I'm sure in 1933 in Germany many people wanted to understand
the SA brownshirts. I'm sure there were several attempts to talk to them as they came around to 'cart off' various family members late at night, true patriots, etc.
We must hope and pray that the loony left of today never assumes power again. Recent events, including this weekend's poorly attended anti-war protests, have a similar feeling about them.
If we continue down this path for a few years, we might find ourselves in that same place.
Lets see what he says:
"Just like Reagan, when a Republican takes office after a democrat, they inherit a disastrous mess. Bush came into office in a recession, the stock market had fallen 50% the year before, the military was gutted, terrorists freely attacked US interests without a response from chicken little Clinton, and we were laughed at by dictators worldwide while Clinton armed our enemies. Bush, the only president in history with an MBA, (from the prestigious Yale no less)"
Man, clause by clause his review maybe better than the book! So you mean when Bush inherited a recession from Reagan that ousted him from the Presidency after a single term and called Reagan's policies "voodoo economics" that was Clinton's or some other Democrat's fault? Actually it was the Democratic Congress' fault. I forgot about them.
The stock market fell by 25% after two specific events that had nothing to do with Clinton but had everything to do Big Oil in the south, and lack of transparency in the government system. The Enron scandal (which is the real cause of the bankruptcy of California) and the November 2000 election. Recesssion only occurs after two consecutive quarters of contraction but Mr Flinn knows that...Read more ›
So is it any wonder that the criminally incompetent and mendacious Bush administration -- after wrecking the economy (in the same cavalier fashion that former Governor Bush wrecked Texas' economy), dismantling longstanding environmental protections, giving massive tax cuts only to himself and his family and all their friends and to anyone else who's made or inherited a fortune, tearing up the Bill of Rights, and making the USA the world's most loathed nation of the 21st century -- fails to protect its citizens from the terrorist acts and subsequent market free-fall IT KNEW WERE COMING? And that Bush then wraps himself in the tragedy of 9-11 to protect himself, thereby avoiding taking any responsibility whatsoever for his CRIMINAL negligence of our security and the US economy -- and then, astonishingly lays the blame for it at "my predecessor's" doorstep? Bush hasn't much brain but loads of gall.
Books like this exist not to present facts but to part fools from their money.Read more ›
