True and uncensored look at the modern political landscape. Exposing democrats for what they are and challenging republicans to do more. Great book for any republican political junkie.
Mr. Horowitz understands the battlespace of politics. For better or worse we've devolved into a nation of political consumers used to seeing our policy presented in 10 second sound bites. He explains how the Democrats understand that central truth and Republicans don't. He also takes time to defend free speech in true Libertarian fashion pointing out threats from the left and the right. I was a bit disappointed by the lack of footnoting and by some of the essays near the end of the book. They seemed to be more personal attacks or responses to personal attacks, a kind of name-calling among the intelligensia. But I must admit he was spot on in a couple of his assessments. The excerpts from and commentary on some of Cornel West's work were very funny.
David Horowitz writes with incisive eloquence. Conservatives are losers because they lack strategies and tactics. The Left wrong-foots them because it understands the art of political warfare and uses it. Conservatives must learn effectiveness. In a few well-chosen words Horowitz explains what to do and how to become effective, how to position yourself and out-fox the opposition. Brilliant stuff!
