4.0 out of 5 stars The Bulldozer and the Big Tent; Blind Republicans, Lame Democrats, and the Recovery of American Ideals", December 23, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Bulldozer and the Big Tent: Blind Republicans, Lame Democrats, and the Recovery of American Ideals (Hardcover)
This is a great book for old liberal political junkies like myself. Todd Gitlin the auther shows no mercy in slicing and dicing the current administration and Christian Conservatives. Those who should buy and read "The Bulldozer and the Big Tent" won't and those who do most will likely ignore the author's conclusions and rather sound political advice.

The format is all to familuar Federalists (Hamilton) and Anti-Federalists(Jefferson) with the Democrats being the Federalists and the Republicans being the Jeffersonian Anti-Federalists. I won't give away how Gitlin determined this but some may be amused with his logic. The Republicans are of course ignorant, lazy, uneducated white Christain Southerners and the Democrats are a bunch of hedonistic self certered Liberals who can't get beyond their own petty seft interest.

That pretty up much sums up the book. If your are a political junkie you can now fill in the blanks, if you are not, well you haven't got this far in the review .

"The Bulldozer and the Big Tent" is for sure one of the first of many books that will tear apart the current Bush administration and where the Republican Party is no at.
