Buchanan, former U.S. treasurer and sister of former presidential nominee Pat Buchanan, takes Hillary Clinton to task in this unapologetically partisan biography. Buchanan outlines how Clinton's personality and character changed after she was elected to the Senate, casting mock sympathy as she goes: "It must be a terrible thing to be as deeply insecure as Hillary. It has made her so incredibly susceptible to the ideas of others." Subsequent chapters criticize the senator's positions on hot-button issues, including healthcare, same-sex partnerships and the war in Iraq. Though Buchanan backs up many of her points with outside scholarship and Clinton's own interviews and records (both as senator and student), claims that Clinton "accepts no responsibility" and disregards "even the most basic standards of behavior" make this a sermon for the choir.

I think Buchanan would agree that Hillary and Bill Clinton have lied about so much, so often, that they have come to believe the lies are true and the truth is a lie.
Whitewater, cattle futures, travel-gate, 911 interviews about Chelsea, the vast right wing conspiracy, and on and on play into the hands of those who relish in her demise. The Clintons have lied to the press and the public about their transgressions; they shirk responsibility for their corruption. Hillary blames a "vast, right-wing conspiracy" for her husband's troubles as well as her own.
Buchanan asserts that there is nothing Hillary Clinton will not lie about to further her ambitions. The truth seems to bear her out. Hillary has even lied about her name and where it came from! (Sir Edmund Hillary, her erstwhile namesake, climbed Everest six years after Clinton was named.)
The central thesis of the book is that, in an effort to win the Presidency, Hillary Clinton has undergone a phony transformation from the left wing of the liberal party toward the center. Her real nature and values and views, however, remain militantly liberal. America is being presented a phony caricature: Hillary as a moderate candidate - in touch with and supportive of America's core values.
Hillary Clinton is a liberal feminist, devoted to the cause of left wing economics: redistribution of the wealth through higher taxes and bigger government programs. She supports socialism although it has been discarded onto the ash heap of history by most thoughtful nations. He supports unrestricted abortions. She believes government is the answer for society's ills. She thinks the rightful role at the head of the family is the liberal vanguard (she and her friends) and the government.
Americans are a forgiving group, by and large. Watchdogs like Bay Buchanan help us remember and recognize the obfuscation of history and be on our guard against the wiles of the enemy, lest we repeat the mistakes of the past.
The author is easily read and wonderfully expressive. I have not wanted to put it down as the book is so well written. Read it and learn!!!
I have written about the threat from the ultra liberals and far lefters before. This has included substantial effort focused on our former VP (see all my reviews). And I have written about the writings of Bay Buchanan's brother, Patrick and his book State of Emergency. Perhaps it is a bit coincidental, but Bay's new book: The Extreme Makeover, is also about a "state of emergency", namely the situation we would face if Hillary Clinton were elected President. Bay Buchanan warns the American electorate that if they don't do their homework, on who Hillary Clinton really is, that the "consequences of doing less are too grave to consider."
Bay Buchanan doesn't waste much time on telling her readers where she stands. Examples:
* the front book flap tells us that Hillary "has always been in her adult life a dedicated, unapologetic liberal."
* And the back book cover quotes Kate O'Beirne: "In her indispensable exposé, Bay Buchanan reveals Hillary Clinton in her natural state--and its not pretty. Buchanan strips away Clinton's moderate makeover and reveals a left-wing record that can't be disguised."
* Back to the front book flap. "As Buchanan makes clear, not only can Hillary not be trusted, but her `makeover' is exactly what one would expect from an unprincipled left-wing politician."
Hillary's record includes a 2004 speech: "It's time to put the common good - - - ahead of individuals."
"Hillary's view of government is simple. "It is to remold society. It can do so by coercion, as in the case of health care; by indoctrination, as in the case of education; or by redistributing the wealth through tax and spend policies." It is pure unadulterated socialism, the type that is forced upon people by their government." In fact the theme from one of Hillary Clinton's earlier books: It Takes a Village, is about as orthodox communistic as one can get
