Crazies to the Left of Me Wimps to the Right: How One Side Lost Its Mind and the Other Lost Its Nerve

Overview

In Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right, Goldberg speaks for the millions of Americans who are saying: Enough! Enough of lunatics like Rosie O'Donnell who think "Radical Christianity" is "as big a threat to America as Radical Islam." Enough of the hyperbolic liberal rhetoric comparing Bush to Hitler and Abu Ghraib to a Saddam Hussein torture chamber. And please, enough of the military-hating crazies who run San Francisco!

But Goldberg has also had it with hypocritical ...

Overview

In Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right, Goldberg speaks for the millions of Americans who are saying: Enough! Enough of lunatics like Rosie O'Donnell who think "Radical Christianity" is "as big a threat to America as Radical Islam." Enough of the hyperbolic liberal rhetoric comparing Bush to Hitler and Abu Ghraib to a Saddam Hussein torture chamber. And please, enough of the military-hating crazies who run San Francisco!

But Goldberg has also had it with hypocritical Republicans who say they're for small government but then spend our hard-earned tax money like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store. He's also had it with weak and timid Republicans who won't stand up and fight against racial preferences, too afraid that the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world will call them bigots. In plain English, he's had it with Republicans who are afraid to be conservative! The 2006 election was a wake-up call, he warns, and if the wimps on the Right fail to regain their courage, recover their principles, and reclaim their sense of fiscal responsibility, the crazies on the Left just might win the White House in 2008.

    Slightly disappointing; I expected more from him.

    This was kind of a disappointment. I've seen him on TV before and, even though I didn't always agree with what he said, is almost always made me think. This was more "complaining" and less "thinking." He only offers a handful of proposed solutions to the world's problems, and they're all at the end, and offered half as a joke. The rest of the book he spends bitching about politics on both sides of the aisle. Very "grumpy old men." I hear his other books are better, so maybe I'll check one of them out.

    Good, not great. Page through it yourself before you decide to buy it.

    This man 'nailed it'. One of their own has not lost his mind. Mr. Goldberg is true to his profession and a has a good grip on how the 'big business' of our government works. His humor is wonderful. He is a wordsmith and a thinker. He doesn't follow the crowd.

    Book says more about his readers

    Bernie Goldberg is an enigma. He's made a career of paranoia about the 'liberal media', yet he's an awful writer (note the dusty references to Amelda Marcos and Rice-A-Roni above) and interviewer - and having thumbed through his last book and this one, he sets the bar extremely low. For conservatives desperate for some validation in a sea of bad news of corruption, scandal, and war, I suppose this book would be a comfort - but Goldberg's execution is atrocious. Unreadable.

    tells it like it is with comedic flair

    best book I've read in a long time. Informative without preaching. Love the polar objective views.

    I was very pleased to read bernard goldbergs latest bestseller crazies to the left of me and wimps to right of me cause I think he seems to say in this book of the frustration that Iam feeling about the political scene right now.the democract party and hollywood elite has gone off the deep end with there outlandlish and sometimes unamerican statements and sympathies and some on the right seem unwilling to stand up to them and this publication is also a warning of what will happen in 2008 if things dont change. I think the wisdom contained in this great page turner will make a great difference in the upcoming election.
