About the Author

Alan Colmes is a liberal political commentator, radio host, author, and web publisher. He currently hosts “The Alan Colmes Show,” a nationally syndicated radio show distributed by Fox News Radio. Offering a bold take on the news of the day, with guests ranging from prominent political figures to the biggest names in entertainment and pop culture, Colmes welcomes “any and all opinion, any and all of the time.” Colmes runs the website Liberaland, where he covers the most recent and powerful stories in the news. He is also the author of the book Red, White & Liberal.

Colmes began his career in stand-up comedy, but quickly moved into the world of broadcast news. After several highly rated radio shows, Colmes cemented his reputation as a liberal voice in the media when he served as the liberal counterpart to Sean Hannity on Fox News’s “Hannity & Colmes.”

I really enjoyed this book, very thought provoking.
Jenn B
I could go on and on and point out the many factual errors and obvious misuse of terms that mislead the reader, but after all, this is a polemic, not a scholarly work.
David M. Dougherty
In this book, liberals are people who are open minded and willing to make a change.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Now, when reviewing a political book, I think it's important that the reader know if my review comes from one political side of the fence or another. So in all fairness, I'm a Liberal. However, I'm a Liberal who doesn't believe that all Conservatives are evil, racist, etc.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, to the book:

I did think that this was a pretty fair accounting of Liberalism in America. It seems that the author went out of his way to show a broad history of the founding of America and American political ideals. He includes stories about many Political Conservatives who have acted in ways to increase racial equality, acceptance of gays and lesbians, and who have helped the poor. He includes stories that show that some of our Liberal Saints were racists who believed in eugenics, regardless of some of the good things they are remembered for.

At its heart, the book is a fascinating history lesson - a history of Americans trying to help others as we build our nation. At the end of reading Thank The Liberals, I wasn't thinking of whether Liberals or Conservatives are better. I was just thinking that we live in a darned good country and I was glad I learned something new.

On the back flap of THANK THE LIBERALS dust cover it said "Colmes began his career in stand-up comedy and quickly moved to..." Then too, there was the book's front cover of BOOK, which depicts author implishly shoving his finger up the Liberal's 'A'. I expected Funny,or at least anything but musty-dusty.

Once inside though there are lifts from the U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 8, etc) with liberal (pun intended) lifts from books about the Constitution, alota legal tomes to do with someone or some entity suing some institution re rights or Supreme Court verdicts (Plessy v. Ferguson), even as far back as 1896 (maybe further) or Brown v. Board of Education or political speeches, debates et so-forth. Then re immigration laws (like SB 1070, with lengthy legal comments. And pages of The Wall Street Journal; then et al et on et on)

Oh: And lower court verdicts and commentary, too. zzzzzzz

In all, it was a lengthy paper chase which must have involved many many many hours of library and online research. If you like law or history or politics (many partisan readers might) this book is for you. For Clark v. THANK the LIBERALS, it became a somnambulistic marathon.

Alan Combs urks me when I see him on TV--usually on FOX News channel...I can always expect him to take a view opposite to that on mine on any issue being discussed. This book is entertaining for it provides what I would expect from Mr Colmes, who drinks the liberal kook-aide. Mr Colmes walks us through liberal values on which our nation was established, and shows how he believes that all Americans are actually liberal and so on and so on.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Thank the Liberals is a political book about the many contributions liberals have made in their quest for a better, fairer America. Fox News commentator Alan Colmes takes the time to share with the reader an endless list of examples that prove the book's main point: That liberals are responsible for positive change and have been on the right side of American history from the beginning.

Author Alan Colmes is no stranger to the bulk of the American public and he is very open in his liberal stand on the pressing issues of our day. He firmly believes in liberal values and the need to work for change and equality whenever possible and he credits his fellow liberals, past and present, for working to make change a regular part of American life. He points out the liberal nature of the founding fathers and other important figures who realized that conditions were not equal for all Americans and worked to even the playing field. The book stresses, over and over again, that liberals were the ones working behind the scenes and in front of them, fighting for change and standing up for the underdog.

I know that the more conservative among us are likely feeling their temperature rise as they read this review, but what everyone must realize is that the book is not referring to liberals in the sense in which most of us think of them today. What the book means when it uses the word liberal is in the classical sense- a person who believes in a live- and- let- live attitude and believes in progressive change. That means that almost every founding father of the United States was a die- hard liberal because each of them wanted a nation founded on radical ideas that were in sharp contrast to the ways of governing in Europe and other places.

Alan Colmes has taken that dirty word and defined what 'The Liberal Agenda' REALLY is, and it is more mainstream and inclusive than you think.
While the title might put some people off (and by some people I mean conservatives), it is a must read for anyone who has drawn a line in the sand and divided our country into 'us and them'. This book points out what should be obvious, and yet seems to be so distant in the minds of those who consider themselves extreme left or right...and that is the fact that most Americans want the same things.
I learned so much by reading this book. A lot of American history is covered, it cites how our Constitution is based on English common law, and in particular the Magna Carta. The recent Presidential election, the history of Unions (of EVERY type, lol!) is outlined...this isn't a book that simply spouts one person's view on liberalism. Yes, a lot of opinion is given, but often backed up with a fact.
There's also a bit of verbal karate that can debunk a few current myths. For example, no matter which way you feel about immigration laws, it is a fact that the crime rate in Arizona was the lowest in four decades between 1998 and 2008. There is the claim that if we drill everywhere possible for oil in the Outer Continental shelf of the lower 48, the supply would be just 2 1/2 years worth. While I'm sure there are many points covered in this book that can be proven or disproven, to me, the bottom line is that it is a reminder that with a little common sense and letting go of the need to be a black and white thinker, both sides can find a common ground.
