The importance of winning grew out of the Californian experience of the recall election. Many people forget how tenuous the recall election was. First, it was on, then off, then on. If it would have been close, it would have been challenged immediately. Thank God, it wasn't, because Arnold has single-handedly rescued us from the brink of disaster.
Sure, the liberal media didn't help Arnold win, but neither did Tom McClintock, one of the Republican "purists." In this book, Hugh makes a great case for the Republican "purists" and "extremists" to give up their pet causes and agendas just long enough to cast a vote for George Bush. Only an overwhelming win, 5% or more, will give the Republican Party the mandate to accomplish its cultural goals.
As a gift, this book is better for Republicans who've lost their way than it is for "girlie man" Democrats. Like John Podhoretz' Bush Country, this book is an apologetic for George W. Bush.
Hewitt deals with issues here not so much from advocacy as in their pragmatic political context. So for example, he's is a pro-life Christian who realizes that national security issues dwarf abortion concerns right now. For a broadcast professional he's enthusiastic about emerging outlets, giving examples of how news stories bubble up from micromedia, like the blogosphere. He understands which campaign contributions matter, and which waste your money. There's a particularly thoughtful chapter on supporting community businesses which support your politics, and even some expert advice on how to be an effective talk radio caller. He speaks respectfully of his personal friends on the opposite side of the aisle, but as the subtitle warns, is resolutely determined to beat them decisively at the polls.
For the busy reader who doesn't have time to plow through one of Ann Coulter's deeply annotated bricks, the good news is that the chapters are short, and the strongest ideas are the simplest. For example, Appendix I lists ten key talking points for 2004. Number one: Our enemies hate and fear George W. Bush because they believe, correctly, that George W. Bush is trying to kill them.
Hewitt's book is an excellent Republican political action primer for a post-9/11 world.
This isn't blatant propaganda for the Republican Party and GWB. It is a fact-filled, intelligent guidebook for those who wish to stay safe in this country.
