This review is from: Great American Hypocrites: Toppling the Big Myths of Republican Politics (Hardcover)
In documenting just a fraction of the GOP hypocrisy rampant today, Greenwald has shown us one reason why the last 7 years of Republican rule has failed so horribly- because they don't believe a word they utter.
They decry an overreaching government- except when they are doing the reaching.
They wring their hands at "amoral liberals"- hoping no mentions their own failed marriages, arrests, scandals and fraud.
They stomp their feet at the "socialist" liberals, while gaming the system for tax cuts, military contracts for superfluous weapons systems, and earmarks out the wazoo.
The GOP is built upon lies- lies about our security, our morality, and the place of government in our lives. They either don't believe a word they spew- making them hypocrites, or they do believe it all- making them fools.
Either way, they had their moment, failed horribly, and now history will judge them. And it won't be pretty, but then again, neither has the last 7 years of GOP rule. Good riddance to bad rubbish. We as a nation can no longer afford your lies, hypocrisy, and warmongering.
Kudos to Gleen Greenwald, a voice of sanity in a world crowded by fools.

"Myth: Republicans are strong on defense and will keep us safe.
Reality: They prey on fears, and their endless wars make America far less secure."
GOP Endless wars:
U.S. enters World War One under Democratic President Woodrow Wilson.
U.S. enters World War Two under Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt.
U.S. enters Korean war under Democratic President Harry Truman.
U.S. enters Vietnam war under Democratic President John Kennedy.

When this country becomes engaged in wars under a Democratic president, it is to eradicate or "contain" a true threat to this Democratic country, and to advocate for a human being's freedom. The right wing plunges America into wars for one revolving reason - thinly veiled GREED.
