Overview

Mona Charen has a loyal following from her syndicated newspaper column (which runs in more than two hundred newspapers) and her many television and radio appearances. Her first book, Useful Idiots, was a six-week New York Times bestseller. Now she’s back, switching her focus from foreign policy to domestic issues.

Unlike some conservatives who throw verbal hand-grenades, Charen never gets shrill or mean. Instead, she focuses on the facts to reveal exactly why liberals are wrong – and how their proposals hurt the very people they claim to be fighting for, as well as the country as a whole.

Do-Gooders is a guide to the smug know-it-alls in politics, the news media, and Hollywood who think they know what’s best for the poor and other needy Americans. From Marion Wright Edelman to Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton to Rob Reiner, this book will skewer the liberals by name. It covers topics like:

· Education: Do-gooders send their own kids to private schools while working to deny poor children a better education through voucher programs.

· Affirmative Action: Do-gooders defend racial preferences at all costs, while ignoring the enormous problems they create for African Americans at all levels of achievement.

· Welfare: Do-gooders thought welfare reform in the 1990s would hurt the poor, and they still refuse to admit how much it actually helped.

By collecting and exposing the most outrageous quotes and actions of the do-gooders, this book will become a must-read for conservatives across the country as they gear up for the next round of policy battles.

    Opinion of Do-Gooders

    I have always been more along the republican side of things, and after reading this book I am still on the republican side. I never really thought liberals were that bad, but when I read this book and realized all liberals do is smear republicans I became a little upset. I thought the author did a great job of laying out all the information, and she used more than enough examples of each topic. I would really like to hear a liberals point of view on this book, and try to see them defend what it says. It seems they are too into hurting republicans that they don't even realize they are hurting everyone else. I think if they took a step back, they would realize they have better things to do.

    Mona Charen's book sheds light on liberal issues

    I had to read a book about a current political issue for my college government class, and I chose this book beacause it presented several problems with society and our government. For example, its title implies that liberals have plenty of bright ideas which, in a round about way, hurt those they want to actually help. Whether it's welfare, racism, crime, or the fall of The Family, Mona Charen provides a well-researched, well-written log of liberal influenced decisions and happenings that did nothing to solve these problems. I recommend that if you are interested in learning more about how good liberal intentions turn bad, you should read this book. I found it to be very informative and you will to.
