Michael Moore is on a mission in his new book: Regime Change. The man who slithered into the White House on tracks greased by his daddy's oil buddies is one of many targets in Mike's blistering follow-up to his smash #1 hit Stupid White Men, the biggest-selling nonfiction book of the year. Now no one is safe: corporate barons who have bilked millions out of their employees' lifetime savings, legislators who have stripped away our civil liberties in the name of "homeland security," and even that right-wing brother-in-law of yours (yes, we all have one) who manages, year after year, through his babbling idiocy, to ruin Thanksgiving dinner.

I find that this book was very enlightening. Moore brings up very valid points that the american people as a society need to take note of. Moore uses a good sense of humor and sarcasm throughout the entire book, there was many times when i caught myself laughing out loud. I would not recommend this book to a republican or a conservative because he basically bad-mouths those types of people in the book. I think that most of the topics that he brings up are factual and have enough supporting evidence behind them that for me it was believable even though i did not want it to be. This is a great book if you love politics and are interested in what is happening in both america and the rest of the world today. all together i thought this was a very good book and i would have no problem reading it again sometime.
I agree with every thing moore has to say in the book and it is all true and it pretty much describes why bush should not have won the 2000 and 2004 elections
Moore offers nothing new in this book and he is not as clever this time around. The book does have some interesting stories of individuals... but most of the stories could be used in a variety of ways to support almost any political view. Moore's Anger and frustration with the current administration is obvious in this book and if he truly believes what he is saying then I guess he deserves to be angry. Here is an example of just one thing I disagree. I disagree because what he says is misleading. In one page of the book he says, 'We've already conducted two wars since 9/11, and an upcoming third or a fourth is not all that unlikely.' What he says is basically true but I think a more accurate way to describe it would be.. 'We've already conducted two battles since 9/11, and other battles are inevitable in the overall war on Terrorism.' He speaks as if he believes that all the battles or fights we have engaged in are not a part of the same war. Or maybe he thinks that the War on Terror is a war on Al Queda. This is just one example of where I disagree. And there is not a page in this book that I don¿t find disagreeable. If you are a Michael Moore fan then you may ask ¿Where is my country?¿ and I would have to say¿ maybe the Republicans have it for a while, after all it¿s about time the pendulum swung back the other direction. It¿s better than marching off the cliff with the suicidal Democrats. Some of the Angry white men that want the country back are: Fat head Kennedy, Gore Zilla, Harry Reid, Tom Daschle, Howard Dean, Shurman, Pelosi, Robert KKK Bird, Dick Durbin, and many other disgruntled democrats.
M. Moore's title 'Dude, Where's My Country?' is an eye catching title that begs for serious answers from this administration. It is our moral and humanitarian obligation to ask these questions before mindlessly agreeing to send people off to war, spending $87 billion or voting for Bush in 2 004. Based on a mass paranoia fostered by misinformation, the real terrorism has come from US policy. As Moore indicates, a history of aggressive policies by the US has caused parts of the world to be more then a little upset with us. The Bin Laden family and the Bush's cozy relationship is no lie, read on.
Wow! I love reading the reviews from all the pseudo-politically educated people on Barnes and Noble. Whether I'm reading the reviews for O'Reilly, Moore, or Coulter, the levels of ignorance are astonishing. This is specifically directed toward the ones who try to sound intelligent, but fail to grasp the basics of grammar and spelling. If you decide to identify yourself as a political science student, please do your school justice and proof read your statement. Moore¿s book was entertaining to say the least as are O¿Reilly and Coulter¿s. I think I would actually purchase these titles myself rather than borrowing them if they were written by a moderately educated person as opposed to an emotional fanatic. I mean c¿mon provide the American people the facts, leave the battle speeches to the Generals in the combat zones. Some of us would much rather be informed as opposed to being swayed.
