From the Back Cover
The 2008 campaign began as a repudiation of Republicans for big spending, corruption, and their failure to manage competently challenges like Hurricane Katrina, border security, and the war in Iraq. It ended with the election of the most radical president in American history. The Obama-Pelosi-Reid team is the most radical group ever to hold the reigns of American power. Its vision of a high-tax, bureaucratic, Washington-centered system dominated by politicians and leading to a secular-socialist future will fundamentally challenge America's role as a beacon of hope, opportunity, and freedom. ...We are once again in a time when we need "bold colors, not pale pastels," as Reagan argued back in 1975. Indeed, the problems are so fundamental we need a new argument about the very nature of political reality and the very nature of danger in the world.
