One of our most visible trenchant and witty political commentators the author of the bestselling i Why Americans Hate Politics i offers a tough critique of President George W Bush and the Democratic opposition on the eve of a landmark presidential election and points to a way out of cynicism and defeatism br With passion clarity and humor E J Dionne describes today s political atmosphere as the bitterest he can remember Never have Democrats been as frustrated by their inability to move the debate The party of Roosevelt Kennedy and Clinton Dionne says is lost in pointless feuds outdated strategies and old arguments Democrats have lost track of what they stand for so they don t know what they re fighting for and besides they ve forgotten how to fight back br In describing how Democrats moderates and liberals have failed to match Republicans and conservatives in commitment resourcefulness and clarity Dionne invents what is likely to become a popular parlor game among the politically committed In The Wrong Stuff he lists ten futile arguments big versus small government for example that Democrats keep having with themselves The Right Stuff focuses on ten arguments they should start making about taxes business and the role of government br Dionne zeroes in on how a floundering Bush administration used September to politicize national security issues for partisan advantage Enraged but intimidated by ruthless opponents the Democratic party failed to find its voice on security issues and was soundly beaten in br Drawing on some lessons from the primary campaigns Dionne argues that anger and frustration have in fact awakened progressives to the need for innovation in organizing in approaching an increasingly conservative media and in formulating politically useful and plainly stated ideas Learning from the conservative movement s successes liberals have begun the work of reconstruction br The politics of revenge Dionne argues persuasively can give way to something better a progressive patriotism built on hope and optimism about America s role in the world and its capacity to renew social justice at home, Progressives everywhere wake up and look alive E J Dionne brings good news Dionne analyzes the recent political chaos and concludes that it s due to Americans moving towards a New Progressive Era not towards a New Right, b In this new edition of his national bestseller E J Dionne brings up to date his influential proposals for a politics that can and must find a balance between rights and obligations between responsibility and compassion b br From the New Updated Introduction br At the heart of i Why Americans Hate Politics i is the view that ideas shape politics far more than most accounts of public life usually allow I believe ideas matter not only to elites and intellectuals but also to rank and file voters Indeed I often think that the rank and file see the importance of ideas more clearly than the elites who often find themselves surprised by the rise of the movements that arise from the bottom up and shape our politics, b Dionne s expertise is evident in this finely crafted and convincing work i The Los Angeles Times i b br br From one of our most engaging political reporters and the author of i Why Americans Hate Politics i the story of conservatism from the Goldwater s to the present day Tea Party that has resulted in broken promises and an ideological purity that drives moderate Republicans away br br i Why the Right Went Wrong i offers a historical view of the right since the s Its core contention is that American conservatism and the Republican Party took a wrong turn when they adopted Barry Goldwater s worldview during and after the campaign The radicalism of today s conservatism is not the product of the Tea Party i Washington Post i columnist E J Dionne writes The Tea Partiers are the true heirs to Goldwater ideology The purity movement did more than drive moderates out of the Republican Party it beat back alternative definitions of conservatism br br Since no conservative administration not Nixon not Reagan not two Bushes could live up to the rhetoric rooted in the Goldwater movement that began to reshape American politics fifty years ago The collapse of the Nixon presidency led to the rise of Ronald Reagan the defeat of George H W Bush to Newt Gingrich s revolution Bush initially undertook a partial modernization preaching compassionate conservatism and a Fourth Way to Clinton s Third Way Conservatives quickly defined him as an advocate of big government and not conservative enough on spending immigration education and Medicare A return to the true faith was the only prescription on order The result was the Tea Party which Dionne says was as much a reaction to Bush as to Obama br br The state of the Republican party controlled by the strictest base is diminished Dionne writes It has become white and older in a country that is no longer that It needs to come back to life for its own health and that of the country s and in i Why the Right Went Wrong i he explains how
