Hysterical. Takes aim at the people and ideas that have created this mess America's in in 2012. But what's great is that it's not mean or nasty. Folks on the right and in the middle will LOVE it. Folks on the left will want to hate it but won't be able to. Folks in Texas will want to make this book required reading. It's that good.

Very funny! Bob Smiley takes knowing aim at the current administration, the enabling media and all the Democrat toadies that we all love to hate. And, in between biting satire and hysterical observation, he manages to include enough genunine humanity to make the characters human. If you are informed you will have no trouble picking out thinly veiled news makers. The President may be a red headed and fishbelly white Bostonian, but he in manner, style and politics it is You Know Who! Michelle is here. George Soros is here. Joe Biden is here. And, so are the Supremes! I loved this book and constantly annoyed those around me by reading passages out loud. "Listen to this. Listen to this. The headline says umemployment rose unexpectedly for the the fourth month in a row!"

This was a great political satire. It was recommended by an online friend, then I chanced to get a free copy (full disclosure), and though I had no idea what it was about initially, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was just my cup of tea! This book definitely bends sharply right, though in the beginning I was a bit unsure because he seemed to make fun of pretty much everyone. The humor shone through in his prose and the situations he put his characters in. Though there were a few fantastic parts that I found hard to believe, sadly the majority of the extreme scenarios seemed all too plausible. Like any good satire, a lot of truth told through a humorous narrative. I would love to see more books like this.

Being a Texan I was interested in this book. Do I agree with it? No but for the story I thought it was entertaining.
