tell me the difference Aug 23, 2008
Bad timing for this book considering the Bush Administration is much worse when it comes to moral bankruptcy. Yes, Bill couldn't keep it in his pants (btw what are the new figures on men cheating on their wives?), but George lied about a war (and don't give me this crap that the Intelligence community was just wrong when the Bush Admin made stuff up to make their case look better) so really I think we have to realize that our country is morally bankrupt b/c we elect people that we ultimately associate with. This "city on the hill" attitude is quite comical considering we are the most violent/sexual nation in the world yet David (hanging on the coattails) Limbaugh doesn't address are own short comings - you can't have a book about an administration w/o discussing the people that put them there. In the last 16 years we've put in an arrogant sexual deviant and a murderer/torturer in the most powerful position in the world. Does that really surprise anyone considering what we enjoy - sex and violence?

this is a very good read the Democrats are found wanting in this book. all the lies and backstabbing. you will find out that the democrats can't ever be held responsible with the country until the secular progressive are driven out. brilliant read highly recommend it!!!!!
Do you want to know why Congress' ratings are so low? Well right here are the answers!!!! Jul 18, 2007
This book offers no one an opportunity to undergo an epiphany in regards to one's personal ideology. It is not a book claiming to present some new, untold, or uncovered insight into the political depravity of the Democrats. What the book provides is a brisk retelling of the obstructionism that has become the bedrock upon which the current democrat party rests. Simply stated, Limbaugh manages to recounts the Democrats recent inability to offer any constructive new policies, or meaningful opposition. If you are a democrat, I am truly sorry for the absence of any news ideas among your fellow travelers. It must be rough to stomach the fact that you stand for nothing other than hatred of W. Limbaugh highlights the fact that the democrats stand for little more than that, and in doing so, portrays one of the key reasons that Congress is failing to accomplish any one of the pledges it made in the 2006 campaign.
Some good examples and some weak claims Jun 28, 2007
Three stars, but just barely.
I thought it was time for a political book, so I got this one and "The I Hate Republicans Reader". In some ways they are similar; each tries to demonize the opposition, and each picks a wide variety of areas or topics to attack. They also differ greatly. This one does a better job of sticking to issues; there are no attacks on appearance, accent, or walk.
There is no explicit reason given for writing the book, but a blurb on the back of the dust jacket says "Don't ever, ever be tempted to vote for a liberal, even as a protest vote." Convincing you to take that advice seems to be the purpose.
Some topics have a better case than others. Limbaugh makes a strong case for lying and hypocrisy by Democrats about Iraq. We do not have to agree with Bush about what to do there tomorrow, to see that the complaint is justified. Similarly, Democrats claimed Social Security was in a crisis state while Clinton was in office, but now say there is no problem. Voluntary, partial privatization might not be the best and exclusive solution to the problem, and it is certainly not the only thing that might be done to make the system solvent in the long run, but claiming there is no problem is no solution.
Court appointments have been controversial. Claiming Pickering was a racist while the NAACP said he was not is certainly immoral. Some other nominations seemed the opposition was claiming no black or Latino could possibly be conservative, or honest. Still others blend into the political background. Politics is a tough contact sport and people will get hurt, even decent people. Limbaugh mentions that the Democrats were successful by merely threatening filibuster, but does not adequately chide the Republicans for their cowardly behavior of not calling the bluff.
Other areas are covered. There are usually some good examples of liberal perfidy, just as the other book has examples of conservatives acting badly. There are other examples that come close to a belief that it is evil to have a different opinion.
You can check Limbaugh's claims. There are 57 pages of notes. Some, however, are references to opinion pieces rather than documentation of facts. This is a trick used by advocates on both sides. You can also use the book to try to convince others that particular views you happen to share with Limbaugh are the best possible view. The table of contents is detailed enough to be useful and the index is eight pages of three columns in tiny type. You can find a topic if you want to refresh your memory of one side's view.
The other book is much worse. I wish I could recommend a balanced book that had all claimed facts as real facts and presented the arguments of both sides fairly, with equal fervor. I can't.
