Publisher's Summary

American Empire is at its apex. We are the sole superpower, with no potential challenger for a generation. We can reach any point on the globe with our cruise missiles and smart bombs, and our culture penetrates every nook and cranny of the global village. Yet our beloved America is now reviled abroad, dictated to by arrogant judges at home, overrun by special interests, and buried beneath a mountain of debt. Where the Right Went Wrong chronicles how the Bush administration and Beltway conservatives have abandoned their principles, and how a tiny cabal hijacked U.S. foreign policy and may have ignited a "war of civilizations" with the Islamic world that will leave America mired down in Middle East wars for years to come. At the same time, these Republicans have sacrificed the American worker on the altar of free trade and discarded the beliefs of Taft, Goldwater, and Reagan to become a party of big government that sells its soul to the highest bidder.

Wow what a read!!

Mr. Buchanan hits the nail on the head. Our real problem is that we have career politicians that just worry about being reelected and holding on to their power, but most are not willing to fight for those they represent. They have no principles. They don't want to rock the boat so they just hold to the status quot. They also allow the Judicial Branch to decide law. They need to assert their power and stand up for the constitution. They just have no backbone. Highly recommended!!!!

Pat Buchanan as our historian

Mr Buchanan teaches us history, err maybe it's math, let's see 1+1= W is a willing dupe of the neocons and unwittingly allows his presidency to be hijacked (but shhh.. don't tell W cause he still doesn't know). Seriously, as a Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, Clinton voting liberal it is interesting to find myself with almost total agreement with Pat and what is wrong with our current foreign policy and the economic irresponsibility of our president and congress. Too bad Pat has to spoil it by delving into his social policy views. Strange bedfellows aside this book sure makes you think. I give it 5 stars.
