Based on her experiences as an interviewer and as a Mississippi native - Southern Democrat - turned Republican; Fox News Analyst Angela McGlowan shows the reader how the liberal political agenda is promoted and exploits Americans, especially women, blacks and Latinos.

I thoroughly enjoyed Bernie Goldberg's book, "Arrogance," but "Bamboozled" takes it to the next level. It shows how the Democratic Party takes the minority vote for granted by manipulating media coverage, promoting cradle to grave "nanny" socialism to make us all dependent on an increasingly powerful federal government, reinforcing negative (and false) stereotypes of Republicans, and rewriting their own history of racism, segregation, and exploitation.

This book is well written and all Black Americans should read it. It makes a very simple point; White liberals think that the only place for Blacks is in their party; some of the topics it contends is that Blacks today 1: have their identity and values defined for them by liberals, 2: the liberal agenda has further deluded the thinking of Blacks Americans that the Republican party is out to get them and that Blacks can't succeed unless they are a part of the left-wing, 3: liberals resort to arcane racial biases in order the shame Blacks into the liberal party.

It goes on to point out that in todays world, Black people are their own worst enemy because they continue to follow, rather than lead ourselves. We still have white people, who have their own best interests in mind, dictating what is best for Blacks, like the post above from Jeanine. The problems affecting Blacks today are not some puppet master white republican who is hiding in the white house, the problem is us. High school dropouts, teenage pregnancy, drugs, immorality. These are the things which liberals want to attribute to the republican party. This tactic only serves to perpetuate the victimization of Blacks and provides an easy excuse for Blacks not to hold themselves accountable. The book highlights the disparity between the morals that are taught in the homes and churches where many Blacks are tendered and the morals held by the liberal party.

I found this book to be extremely beneficial; even more, it is crucial for Blacks to be able to find their own identity in the political world without being harassed by left-wings for not dancing to their ideas. Liberals mascaraed as a party of choice, but don't give Blacks the freedom which to formulate their own opinions, instead, they are forced into a philosophy of life which contradicts the majority of Black life.

I skimmed through the book at my local Barnes and Noble yesterday. Before placing an order for it I looked it up on Amazon, chuckling to see the (predictable) one-star ratings. I noted how 'personal' those ratings were. I considered Angela's writing no-nonsense sharp; she skillfully documented critical historical truths about the inglorious legacy of the US Democratic Party, and also pointed out some of their recent lies. The book seemed well-researched. I recommend it to those who don't mind challenging popular (un)wisdom. While some liberals have issues with blind faith their "godless" devotion to their often-nebulous creed can also be no less blind: a reviewer opined "Didn't need to read it." (no way to confirm for whom he voted...twice!) Indeed, without scope-clarification the same reviewer's "at no time heard her say anything of substance" and "rude tactics" meant precious little. Another reviewer deemed it worth mentioning that her "husband purchased this book against [her] wishes." Can a man buy a book that he likes, without permission from his wife? Ad nauseam lies do not convert truth. But those can bury the truth making it less-likely for herd-followers to dig it out, for critical evaluation. And this reality is routinely exploited by the panderers of liberal lies. We "need to read" opinions from BOTH sides, so we are better-informed. Read on your own a book like "Bamboozled" by Angela McGlowan, or "Slander" by Ann Coulter, and judge their merit by the factuality of their findings and the defensibility of their conclusions. The endeavor might be challenging at first but, in the end, you'll likely be far more informed. Let us not allow ourselves to be bamboozled by self-assigned preachers of liberal gospels who shoot charcoals of unsubstantive, unrelated rants about Angela's "Bamboozled".

I was enthralled with this book! "Bamboozled" is an in-your-face expose` of programs, platforms, and politicians that have run amok in American society. Reading it reminded me of a song by Roberta Flack (loosely paraphrased). The author was: "Strumming my pain with her pen, telling my life with her experiences, and enlightening me, softly, with her words.

One of my dearest friends said to me, in a heated discussion: "That is so white of you!" Unfortunately, this is a position too many of us take when having to deal with an opposing point of view. Everything becomes Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican, and black or white. "Bamboozled" reminds us the correct approach should be ... right or wrong.

I beseech those of you with personal agendas, not to disparage this important read without first exploring its contents. The book is well researched, and filled with information sure to astonish many that are not yet brainwashed ... by certain points of view.

Those who ask: "What have Conservative Republicans done for the country, women, and minorities?" will discover a better question is: "What have they not done?"

If you are disgusted with politicians taking your vote for granted and making empty promises (I know, I am) -- you should abandon the ranks of the bamboozled. Buy this marvelous book and join the march to personal responsibility, self-reliance, and independent thought.
