Get the book, read it, take notes and then give it away.

This might do much to explain why certain Democrat precincts had Saddam Hussein- like turnouts in the 2000 election.
PC Gamesman
I like Hugh Hewitt mainly because he presents his argument with facts.

Before it was even officially released, it was already one of Amazon's best sellers. If you have listened to Hugh's daily radio show or a fan of his web blog hughhewitt.com, or if you read his columns, you already know that Hugh is a relentless defender of freedom and liberty. This book is a blunt assessment of the collapse of the Democratic Party on matters of national security, a vigorous defense of the Bush Administration's record in the war on terror and the president's leadership generally, and a candid statement on the stakes of November's vote. If you are a conservative and want to be uplifted or if you are a liberal and want to be enlightened, you need to get this book.

Like many of his conservative brethren, Mr. Hewitt will undoubtedly be the recipient of several poor "reviews" that are based far less on the book-the person in question is unlikely to have read it-than the author's disagreement with Mr. Hewitt's political beliefs. Thankfully, even those of us from Mayberry can easily discern such "reviews," as one need only look for a decided lack of information about the book or an notable failure to address the parts the "reviewer" disagreed with, much less a petty personal attack.
As to the book itself, it is as timely and relevant as one could hope. There is no more pressing issue facing our country than national defense, and Mr. Hewitt makes a convincing case that the Democratic Party lacks the credentials and possibly the will to carry the war on terror forward. He supports his criticisms of the Clinton Administration not with petty hyperbole, but with a careful analysis of the rapid terror escalation that went largely without response. Afterwards, Mr. Hewitt provides an in-depth analysis of the words and actions of powerful Democratic leaders to show the Democratic plan for the war on terror consists of little more than a recurring attack on President Bush, a plan--using the most loose sense of the word--that lacks any substance to address the increasing danger our nation faces.
The most valuable sections of the book are those that explore the impact of the blogosphere and the role each person can play in the political process. As the traditional media of network news and print continues to lose influence to the Internet, a new means of distributing news and opinion has taken hold in the form of blogs.

A few years ago early on a Tuesday morning, I'm driving to work listening to the radio. When the host of the show returned from break w/out the usual "bumper music" I knew something was up. My bubble of a world was popped. My first "JFK/what were you doing when you heard...." experience had just occurred, and since then, unlike so many Americans, I have not forgotten. Hugh Hewitt was the radio voice who broke the news of 911 to me.
I listen to a lot of talk radio but eventually, I get tired of hearing the usual group of conservative hosts out there, even though I agree with them on most everything.
Michael Medved is a horrible movie critic. Michael Savage is nothing more than a crazy man. Imus needs his ass kicked. Pragers not as smart as some people think. Rush is right, but he's an ass. But Hugh Hewitt is a man so decent, funny and so intelligent, on talk radio he stands alone.
IF IT'S NOT CLOSE THEY CAN'T CHEAT... has all the talking points and gives them in the most concise way. This book nails it. In it, Hugh includes the texts of Dubya's great speeches and he highlights the most powerful parts. And by the way, anyone who thinks President Bush is just reading what speech writers have written for him, you're wrong. Read Karen Hugh's "Ten Minutes From Normal", or David Frum's "The Right Man", or even liberal journalist Bob Woodward's "Bush at War" and you'll see he's really the one in charge. Stick with "it's all about the oil!!!" Idiots.
Also, there's a history of voting corruption that's fascinating, and as someone who appreciates great quotes from great men, the book has many.
I am a proud UNION iron worker.

This book is one of the best guides I know to why the Democratic Party, as presently constituted, can NOT be trusted anywhere NEAR the levers of power. While it also includes a history of Democratic Party corruption going back to the founding of Tammany Hall, at almost the beginning of the Republic, this indispensible volume ALSO shows how the Dems have moved steadily Leftward since the late 1960's.
This book will no doubt be given a number of terrible reviews by Democrats, and other Leftists, but these may be safely ignored as the partisan "sour grapes" they are.

From an idealist (and an effective debater on the issues), some great practical advice for winning elections, especially for conservative Republicans. Also finally calls out the Democrats for their rampant electoral cheating throughout the ages. All you heard about from the media after the 2000 election was Florida, Florida, Florida, where Republicans allegedly kept black voters from the poills. What they didn't tell you was that an extensive study conducted by the Democratic-controlled FEC failed to locate a single qualified black voter who was unable to vote on that fateful day. There was an inherent racism in their claims; for example, the perfectly legal banning of convicted felons from voting was called a racist policy because it "unfairly" affected blacks more than whites.
If you're truly concerned about fraud during the 2000 election, look at the underhanded and possibly illegal actions of the Democratic party in winning razor-thin margins in Missouri and Nebraska. For instance, the Dems got a court order (later overturned, but too late to matter) from a pet Democratic judge to keep polling places open in parts of Missouri past the time they closed everywhere else. These polling places were in heavily Democratic areas (naturally). (Gore tried to pull a similar stunt in Florida, by calling for a recount only in Democrat-dominated precincts.) Even today, in Nevada and other battleground states, election officials are catching Democrats "registering" thousands of dead bodies as "voters." But do you hear about these and other dirty Dem tactics from the mainstream media? Surely you jest?
