Over the Cliff: How Obama's Election Drove the American Right Insane

Overview

"John Amato and David Neiwart have produced a book that should stay on shelves for years---long enough to remind us that at least some people understood the strange and vile energies consuming the social contract at the beginning of the third mellenium. As a record of what is happening to American conservatism in the year 2010, Over the Cliff is unmatched."

Overview

"John Amato and David Neiwart have produced a book that should stay on shelves for years---long enough to remind us that at least some people understood the strange and vile energies consuming the social contract at the beginning of the third mellenium. As a record of what is happening to American conservatism in the year 2010, Over the Cliff is unmatched." Rick Perlstein, author of Nexonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America" "If you want to understand the forces behind the extreme demonization of President Obama and the assault on progressive America, look no further than Over the Cliff. With witty analysis and thorough investigative reporting, Amato and Nelwert provide a definitive chronicle of the far-right's rapid movement from paranoia to outright violence." Mac Blumenthal, author of Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement That Shattered the Party" "Over the Cliff is a genuinely useful cataloguing of the remarkable descent of the American right into vicious name-calling, racist demonizing, and paranoid conspiracy-mongering since the election of Barack Obama. Amato and Nelwert do a first-rate job of chronicling the dangerous, populist rage on the right that pandering politicians and shameless media pundits are aiding and abetting." Mark Pdtdk, director of the intelligence Project, Southern Poverty Law Center.

    While I believe President Obama has been a mixed bag, it's hard

    While I believe President Obama has been a mixed bag, it's hard to see how anyone can deny he's made a good-faith effort, and we are certainly seeing some results. Let's try to remember, the country wasn't in great shape when the man took office. In fact it's fair to say no president since FDR inherited such a mess. Yet, the venomous vitriol hurled at him on a regular basis is probably like nothing this country has seen since Lincoln. I'd like to see this book updated, to include the mud that's been slung since its original publication.
