Anyway, here after I just said there's very little middle ground, I'm here to stake it out. I don't know that I consider myself much of a Trump fan. I recognize his accomplishments, I concede his successes, and I grudgingly admire his bombastic nature. Is he Presidential? I frankly have my doubts, but those doubts aren't really informed or spoken to by this book. I was expecting something along the lines of his fellow NROnik David Freddoso's book The Case Against Barack Obama, but Williamson seems to rely more on implications and ad hominem than any clear disqualifications for Trump. In other words, the case against Trump seems to boil down to "Williamson doesn't like him."
One criticism has to do with Trump's speaking style and makes judgements with facts not in evidence. Well, I seem to recall George W. Bush having a poor speaking style, but I must have missed how that disqualified him per Williamson's criteria.
Simply put, and again I say this as someone who is not at all committed to Trump, but I find this work very unpersuasive. To be sure, Williamson is a talented writer. He is someone who is undoubtedly able to construct persuasive arguments. Before National Review went off the chain, I looked forward to reading his work, and I found his pieces regarding the Second Amendment to be wonderful. More's the pity, therefore, that he doesn't offer much in the way of substance in this book.Read more ›
The only reason it has a one-star is because it is not possible in this system to register a no-star or a negative-stars review. Expend no time on this, and certainly expend no money - Williamson should receive no compensation for this garbage whatsoever.
