Overview

Rush Limbaugh, America's #1 radio talk-show host, bounded to the top of the bestseller lists with the record-breaking The Way Things Ought to Be. Now, this consummate entertainer and provocative political commentator, whom conservatives love and liberals love to hate - this "harmless little fuzzball" who delights in being called "The Most Dangerous Man in America" - has made publishing history again with a record breaking 2-million-copy first printing of See, I Told You So. The Democrats may be in the White House, but Rush leads the charge to embrace and defend the fundamental values that have shaped the American character: belief in God, devotion to family, law and order, rugged individualism, commitment to excellence, rewarding achievement, and...the notion that the woman is always right! An no less a liberal then Ted Koppel, quoted in Vanity Fair, said, "You ignore him at your peril."

This book was written during President Clinton's first term. It is propaganda for sheep, for bored "ditto-head" men who want to be told that "liberal" is the only evil on the planet of America. It is hard to find any "message" here other than to despise those he declares to be not "normal". Although, this evil does appear to be everyone except his own self, the all-knowing "Rush!". His enemy list -- women, liberals, animal-lovers and those who enjoy public resources -- is filled with "straw man" descriptors. I am a liberal, but I know of no liberal who wants to raise taxes and increase government in the absence of extreme need. Curiously, the book contains a very helpful and accurate Index. You can look up "trickle down economics" and find out that it is a term used by liberals as part of the class war against the wealthy. [53, 60] In fact, however, there is no evidence of a war against the downtrodden rich. Those of us with memories can recall that the phrase was part of President Reagan's effort to explain why he was cutting tax rates to the most wealthy while at the same time raising tax rates on the middle class. [The assumption is that only the wealthy are the "entrepreneurs" who should be relieved of the burdens of paying taxes 117-119]. The only revenue increase which appeared was due to the heavier burden laid upon the middle class. I did find one reference to a professional historian, Walter Karp. 75] Limbaugh fails to mention that Karp is a very Progressive liberal who is highly critical of the power of private oligarchs and monopolists who have wreaked havoc on middle class prosperity. Limbaugh also cites data from a libertarian economist who has since become openly Keynesian, Milton Friedman. Friedman is cited for well-known data: "in 1950, total government spending, federal, state, and local, amounted to less than 30 percent of national income; in 1992, to nearly 45 [percent]." [267] However, Mr. Limbaugh offers no explanation for the fact that most of the expansion of Government before 1992 occurred during Republican administrations. He completely omits the fact that President Reagan's policies dramatically expanded Government while at the same time dramatically expanding its Debt, converting this country from the world's biggest Creditor to the world's biggest Debtor in just 8 years. Yet, here is Limbaugh blaming Clinton, who had just begun an administration, which as we all know, ended with reduced Government growth and a budget surplus used to pay down the Debt. Limbaugh takes this type of fact and announces that "liberals never really get around to fixing problems". [268] The conclusions are disconnected from the facts.The world, as it always has, faces many challenges. Limbaugh tirelessly recites the dangers we face -- often accurately, such as when he quotes Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan's "illuminating statistics" on the welfare, crime and illegitimacy trends in New York City. Where Limbaugh errs is in failing to offer any solutions -- his only remedy is to somehow expurgate all -- all -- the Democrats. Where Limbaugh errs to the point of criminality is in failing to note that Senator Moynihan had offered serious proposals and programs for addressing the issues, all of which were sabotaged and neutered by the wealthy oligarchs controlling private monopolies of power in New York City. The late Senator Moynihan was a liberal Democrat -- and Limbaugh cannot point to a single great Republican leader who offered a plan to remedy the serious challenges. The book is not just a slam against the middle class, it is an over the top apology for "the rich -- the latest scapegoats for every evil in our society". [280] In the 1990's there were no rabid communist agitators organizing the masses against imagined capitalist overlords. Not happening. Yet, Limbaugh finds, without a single citation, that wealthy people have been wrongfully accused and are "scapegoats for every evil"? Really. The

There has never been a fatter face on the cover of a book, ever. A load of garbage, but not as terrible as his children's book. Zero Stars

This book contains the right things to say about our society. What he says is right on target, he does not hold anything back. He attacks the liberal ideas and the people of the left wing. He shows the facts and reveals the true colors of these socialistic heavy weight liberals. What Rush says makes me wonder why someone would question him. Rush hits the liberals hard, and it was coming to them anyway. This book almost has the guidelines to a successful nation. I would recommend this book to a moderate liberal. The reason why I say this is because this book will show that person the truth. The truth is that everybody that is paying taxes should know about. The only way to understand that is to hint hint read the book. I enjoyed this book and I agree what Rush has to say. This book makes me wonder why people do the things they do to bring down society. This book is fit for a republican as well and I think it would great for them to read it and gain knowledge from it.

I found this book to be a simplistic rehash of questionable Neo-Conservative pap. The false religion of neo-conservatism upon which the author heavily relies is currently being discredited. The author was obviously fed his data directly from Murdoch's Neo-Con WEEKLY STANDARD! I was not happy with the authors lack of intellectual depth and lack of researched footnotes. The neo-conservative foundation that Mr. Limbaugh relies upon is fundamentally flawed and is in fact not conservative at all! He seeks through the book to lure the unsuspecting 'Joe Sixpack' neophyte into his neo-con trap! All in All I found this book to be disappointing and flawed because the author purposely mixes truth with neo-conservative globalist error.

Very often, Rush Limbaugh presents some gem of truth about liberals which at first seems to be extreme or unfair. Then, wouldn't you know it, the liberals do something even more goofy than what Rush told us that they would do!

The book certainly lives up to its title. Very often, Rush makes a quip about what the liberals will do next. No one takes it seriously. And then, guess what? The liberals actually manage to outdo the silliness of their Limbaugh-made caricature of them.
