Early political sniping = the same patterns today
on October 17, 2015
This book covers the political machinations used by the opposing parties since George Washington. I was amazed at how the tactics used from day one of our political election cycles to today invoke the same accusations, mud slinging and posturing.
I always thought that we had degraded ourselves to the mud slinging of today and that early elections were more "gentlemanly" and altruistic. Boy, was I wrong !
This book is a great read. It covers , not with a lot of detail ( so you won't get bored), each election from Washington to Bush. It made me want to delve deeper into some of our historic happenings and how those elections shaped the U.S. today.
I would recommend it, but I wouldn't pay a lot for it. It's good, but not great.
