About the Author

Alan Colmes is a liberal political commentator, radio host, author, and web publisher. He currently hosts “The Alan Colmes Show,” a nationally syndicated radio show distributed by Fox News Radio. Offering a bold take on the news of the day, with guests ranging from prominent political figures to the biggest names in entertainment and pop culture, Colmes welcomes “any and all opinion, any and all of the time.” Colmes runs the website Liberaland, where he covers the most recent and powerful stories in the news. He is also the author of the book Red, White & Liberal.

Colmes began his career in stand-up comedy, but quickly moved into the world of broadcast news. After several highly rated radio shows, Colmes cemented his reputation as a liberal voice in the media when he served as the liberal counterpart to Sean Hannity on Fox News’s “Hannity & Colmes.”

One of the best books to have laid out case for liberals and why a history is important to learn from them and why should endorse these values and not scorn them.

I believe in liberal ideologies as long as they are tempered by fiscally conservative responsibility - a delicate balance indeed.

Thank the Liberals by Alan Colmes is a well researched exploration of the roots of liberalism in the United States, originating with our founding fathers and exemplified through our most cherished documents, the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence..Colmes, a well known liberal political commentator, makes a convincing argument that the United States was founded on liberal principles and that its ongoing survival has been based upon progressive initiatives. From those skeptics, Colmes provides over 20 pages of footnotes and references to support his hypothesis.

Thank the Liberals is a great read for both liberals and conservatives as it reinforces the liberal's contentions that our homeland was founded upon and continues to survive on liberal principles, while providing conservatives with a better understanding of how the liberal brain is wired.

Without a doubt, a conservative author could have or would have written a book on the opposing viewpoint, proving that our heritage is based upon conservative principles. This perhaps would be a perfect project for Sean Hannity who is Colmes former conservative counterpart. However, what can't be disputed is that Alan Colmes tirelessly documented and researched his facts when writing Thank the Liberals.

What we all can agree upon: Thank the Liberals is a provocative work of either fiction or non-fiction depending upon your political persuasion.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Now, when reviewing a political book, I think it's important that the reader know if my review comes from one political side of the fence or another. So in all fairness, I'm a Liberal. However, I'm a Liberal who doesn't believe that all Conservatives are evil, racist, etc.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, to the book:

I did think that this was a pretty fair accounting of Liberalism in America. It seems that the author went out of his way to show a broad history of the founding of America and American political ideals. He includes stories about many Political Conservatives who have acted in ways to increase racial equality, acceptance of gays and lesbians, and who have helped the poor. He includes stories that show that some of our Liberal Saints were racists who believed in eugenics, regardless of some of the good things they are remembered for.

At its heart, the book is a fascinating history lesson - a history of Americans trying to help others as we build our nation. At the end of reading Thank The Liberals, I wasn't thinking of whether Liberals or Conservatives are better. I was just thinking that we live in a darned good country and I was glad I learned something new.

Thank The Liberals* *For Saving America proposes the idea that liberal values are patriotic, American, good for our society, and shared by most Republicans, whether they'll admit it or not. Some of the things the author says about our shared values were really worth listening to, but some progress that he celebrates, and invites us to celebrate, strike horror into the hearts of social conservatives. If you could get them to read the book at all, praise of gay rights accomplishments would make them burn it.

Perhaps the best use of the book is to convince liberals to reach out to conservatives, many of whom are merely the liberals of yesteryear. I'll have to read it again and think about it.

A goodly portion of this book reminds us that many of the advantages we enjoy today were implemented by liberal thinkers who were heavily opposed by the conservative thinkers of the day. Social Sicurity, Medicare, minimum wage, five day workweek all fall in this category.

The author of course then tries to convince us that the main issues on today's liberal agenda, abortion and gay marriage, fall in the same category as the above. Some will agree with him and some won't, but the book and the arguments therein are worth reading. And the look at what liberal thinkers accomplished in the past is definitely something all should read and be aware of.

Alan Combs urks me when I see him on TV--usually on FOX News channel...I can always expect him to take a view opposite to that on mine on any issue being discussed. This book is entertaining for it provides what I would expect from Mr Colmes, who drinks the liberal kook-aide. Mr Colmes walks us through liberal values on which our nation was established, and shows how he believes that all Americans are actually liberal and so on and so on.

For many, partisan preconceptions will be the only criteria used to judge both this book and this review. The love of country, of knowledge, of truth mean nothing to these people. They have already stopped reading.

I will confess to having misgivings about reading a political book penned by a Fox News personality, but having persevered I found it eloquently made a case for the values and policies generally (but not always) associated with the Democratic Party. That does not mean I agree with every word of it, nor that you should, only that the debatable opinions are supported by independently verifiable facts.

Chapters one and three provide a textbook-like overview of the Constitution and key court decisions, while chapters two and four examine the last century and seek to prove McGovern's line that every step forward "has been a liberal initiative taken over conservative opposition". At the very least, the author makes a strong case that every President since FDR would be considered a liberal by the Tea Party on one issue or another.

The closing three chapters discuss the issues that divide us, particularly religion; Mr. Colmes is far more optimistic than I am about how our divided house shall return to a firmer foundation. I pray he is right.
