I don't know anyone who loves Dick Morris. Some people hate him and cannot hear anything he says. Just bringing up his name upsets them to the point of unreason. Yet, if one can simply consider what he has to say it is usually interesting and often worthwhile even if you strongly disagree with what he has to say. This is because he really does understand how our political emotions work and the kinds of issues that provoke the electorate to action. Whether or not he actually believes what he is saying on behalf of a politician or about an issue is not all that relevant. Personal convictions often wither under the hot sun of political campaigns. Even so, this book seems to be more about the frustrations Morris and McGann share with us about how both the Democrats and the Republicans are failing us in Congress.

His take on the immigration problem is actually quite fresh. Rather than focusing only on the border with Mexico, he points out that at least half the problem, and the more serious failure in preventing another 9/11, is the millions who overstay their visas. They come in legally, but fail to leave as required. Since we do not track who leaves the country it is all but impossible to find out who is here in violation of their visas! Morris says that we not only need to begin tracking those who leave so we can get some idea who remains, but we also need to bar all immigration from those countries that are designated as sponsors and supporters of terror.

The United Nations and its many failures and scandals are examined next.

The only strange thing about Outrage is that Dick Morris wrote it. I'm truly surprised and pleased. Beyond the specifics, I found his comments to be sane and not contain wild accusations. Reasoned is the word I would use.

The litany of abuses that he exposes are wide ranging and sweeping in their implications. Corruption in Congress seems to be rampant and occuring on both sides of the aisle. Corporate misconduct seems to be increasing and as an adjunct instructor in Business at a University, I'm glad Morris lays it out the way he does.

The question I'm asking after reading Outrage is where is the vaunted news media on these issues? It seems that the attention given to the war and to Bush bashing on the part of the major news organizations has meant that many of these abuses have been ignored. Regardless of where you are on the Bush popularity scale, as Americans we should all be concerned about these abuses. We should be demanding that they be investigated.

It is only my opinion but Morris' greatest recommendation is to ban immigration from widely known terrorist countries. Racist? Hardly. We didn't allow immigration from Japan, Germany, nor Italy during WWII. Perhaps the greatest generation knew something we didn't.

Outrage is well researched and dead-on target. It matters not that it was written by a former Clinton insider.

I highly recommend.

There was a lot about this book that I didn't really like, and I still gave it 4 Stars. Here's why.

Yes, this is another rant book, which seems to be a new and popular US literary genre, but this book goes way beyond the rant by popping the lid on the names of the "wrongdoers", providing very specific behind-the-scenes information, and proposing myriad ways to fix what's broken. Many of the authors' suggestions seem doable and would correct the specific misuses of power that this book reveals. In addition, and this is the amazing part, the authors give the names of individuals involved in the "outrageous" behavior covered in this book and very specific details. You will not have to read between the lines with this book. So, it's kind of a Rant/Tell-All book, which redeems the rant aspect of this book for me. I can't help but wonder whether the politicians mentioned here will be elected again next year, and what hoops they'll have to jump through to undo the damage that this book will cause them. And the next time you're shopping for homeowners insurance, whether the information in this book will affect your decision. And so on. Let me say, I hope so. Even with internet access, much of the information revealed in this book is not available to most of us, and therein, for me lies a huge part of the value of this book. This is information Americans need to make better decisions in the future.

This is an unusual book, in that there may be a lot you won't like about what the authors have to say, but you will learn a lot of valuable insider information about the way the cookie crumbles here in the US and why. In addition, OUTRAGES may well pave the way for legislative changes that will correct these particular abuses.

I'm really glad to see that this book is doing so well- because people need to hear this and more. I was concerned more with the financial aspects of Morris' argument than the political or moral side, but I was intrigued and scared by most of what he and coauthor had to say.

Most notable is the corruption in Washington. We are funding politicians and their inflated pensions (that's common knowledge), but we're also funding their spouses (who are on their payroll) and relatives who get paid to lobby their big-shot nepotists in DC.

I love the bit on the UN too- can we say a little outdated bureaucracy? The former Clinton advisor (Morris) is hard-hitting and straightforward and alerts us to a ton of waste that we're paying for.

Other books I recommend along these lines areHow to Take Advantage of the People Who Are Trying to Take Advantage of You by Morse which shows you how to turn the tables on government (and more) and The Fair Tax Book, which lays out a revolutionary, yet thoughtful and prudent, way we should be taxed.

Keep reading!

Will the Rant find an audience?
This corruption goes on from municipalities thru various government levels. When your paycheck comes from the Treasury of the government
it seems that accountability does not matter. The true intelligence
levels of many of these individuals at best is sophmoric!
