Overview

How Fox News KO'd The Republican Party chronicles the history of the Tea Party as a movement and as an ill fitting political party within the Republican Party.

EXCERPT
Anyone who follows politics knows that the Grand Old Party (GOP) is in deep trouble. The Republican Party is in total disarray and that may be an understatement. Republicans in the Senate and House snipe at each other and House members refuse to do anything constructive. Instead like lemmings being drawn to their death, they continue meet the definition of insanity-doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result-by voting 43 times to defund the Affordable Care Act-Obamacare.

This aberrant behavior didn't happen overnight. Nor was it accidental, it wasn't. That's not to say it was planned, it wasn't. The seeds for what is taking place in federal and state governments now were sown way back in November 2008.
It started with the election of a personable, African American man with the strange, non-Anglo, sounding name, Barack Obama. Charming and intelligent with empathy for working class people, Barack Obama had caught the imagination of much of the electorate-enough to win a decisive, almost landslide, victory.

I may be wrong, but when Barack Obama shocked the right and the world by winning the 2008 presidential election, the right didn't know what to think or do at first. The right wing media machine hadn't kicked into gear yet. I actually had the distinct feeling that the right didn't hate Obama, yet. Not only that, but it seemed as if many right wingers were willing to give BO the benefit of the doubt and withhold judgment until he actually did something.

Unfortunately, this moment of d├ętente passed and by the time he was inaugurated, Fox News and the hate radio dwarves had demonized the President elect for two and a half months-drilling into their minds how evil he was and that he would ruin the country.
Not surprising, the Republican Party was unhappy with the results of the election and within hours of the new President's inauguration, party apparatchiks and consultants unscrupulously met at a DC supper club and plotted a policy of total obstruction against the duly elected President of the United States. To me, if this isn't treasonous, it's seditious or at least shamelessly unethical.

Nevertheless, the Republican Party weren't the only discontented parties. Rich and powerful interests were also displeased and vowing to do something about it, set something in motion, which may ultimately destroy the Republican Party as a national party.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Despite its negative review, I

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Despite its negative review, I wanted to take a chance and see what this author had to say. I was pleasantly surprised. This book is truly refreshing! It was nice to read the truth and be presented with hard core facts and reliable information to back up certain statements. The author did a fantastic job of presenting the information in a very organized, easy to follow format. It was not solely based on his views, but instead the truth. Many of the breaking news headlines that should be put onto television is covered right here in this book. If you are curious, even just a little about the state of current politics and the impact of certain media outlets, I urge you to read this book. It is very informative!
