    David Corn did a very courages thing, bringing such explosive and damaging information to the american public. It probably cost Romeny the presidency. I watched him as he was campaigning and he seemed like a man that didn't want to be where he was at. I never saw the fire in his eyes, the passion in his belly, the real enthusiasm, instead I only saw a man who was only giving 47% of himself. (ha, ha)
    Thank you David Corn, you might have saved this country from a real dissaster.

    If you enjoy politics at its best- this is it!

    David Corn has written the most fascinating story of this election year. There are back stories that we haven't heard before and since it's VERY short- it's a quick read. I couldn't put it down.

    Excellent Quick Read!

    Great follow-up to the video. Forty-eight pages explaining how the 47% "speech" came about. This is worth your time and money.

    Highly Recommended!!!

    This is a must read book that gives the reader a insides view of the political theatre during the 2012 elections. This book will help you more fully understand the "thinking or lack thereof" of Mitt Romney & the Republican Tea Party.
