Format: Paperback
I'm an avid reader but I tend to focus my attention on the likes of John Grisham and James Patterson. I've never read a political book in my life because I have no interest in,or clue about politics. For this very reason a friend of mine insisted that I read Bush Unplugged and I am so glad I finally took the literary political plunge. I was riveted from the first page,and throughout the book I could not believe what I was reading.I was blown away by what I did not know about the president and his cronies and how these stories are not reported on the evening news.Thanks to MR. Umile's book I feel like my eyes are open and I should spend more time reading about the money and power issues that drive our political figures.I had no clue and always put my trust in our leaders.What a fool I've been. Umile calls himself a "research junkie."I call him a brilliant public servant who opened my eyes.

The remarkable thing about Marc Umile's Bush Unplugged is that it accessible to people from all parts of the political spectrum. Umile's style is conversational, the information easily absorbed. I had fun reading this book even as I shuddered at the implications of the myriad undemocratic, self serving, and downright immoral activities of the folks currently administering The People's affairs. We should ALL read Bush Unplugged - NOW - BEFORE NOVEMBER 2nd!

Format: Paperback
If you have wondered where this administration came from, Marc Umile does a great job of answering that question. He makes it abundantly clear--with compelling arguments and persuasive evidence--that George W. Bush is neither compassionate nor conservative. It brings to mind the witticism about the meaning of "compassionate conservative": they still won't help you, but they feel really bad about it! Except this guy doesn't feel a thing. Not a thing.

As you read this book, think about the principles that have defined traditional Republicanism: a commitment to balanced budgets, Constitutional government, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and keeping the government out of our personal lives. This administration--with its massive federal deficits, its promotion of the Patriot Act, its aggressive wars abroad, and its intrusion into the most intimate aspects of our privacy-- violates all four of those principles.

Mussolini observed that "fascism" could be defined as corporatism, since it represents the merger of big business with big government, a coalition characterized by rampant nationalism and aggressive militarism. The leader is identified with the state, which makes criticism of the leader unpatriotic or even treasonous. Ask yourself where we find ourselves at the beginning of this new millenium. As you will discover here, the situation is more than a little frightening.

My Democrat friend begged me to read one chapter, 'just this one chapter' she said. I was bitten by the information, by Mr. Umile's straight-forward writing style and read the entire book.

His voice is fresh, he's a political independent who tracked down incredible information on Mr. Bush, his family and regime; how can I ignore the facts. Just the facts.

Read this and weep my fellow Republicans.
