The author is a prominent political program commentator at CNN. This book has presented his overt criticisms toward the current US Government, specifically, Bush Administration.
The discussions were delineated around several major political issues: 1) Iraq War – The war in Iraq has damaged the U.S. in many ways: other than mobilizing more terrorists, it stretched the country’s military manpower, alienated our long-standing allies with unilateral decision making, and had more people hate us around the world. Many Americans have favored impeachment of Bush/Cheney for initiating the war. Although Bush Administration used anti-terrorist as the reason to start the war, it really is a crime against humanity. Thousands of consequently lost lives have showed the world that Bush, Cheney, and others are true terrorists. 2) Hurricane Katrina – The irresponsiveness of Bush Administration exacerbated the damages brought by this natural disaster. 3) Illegal Immigration – The number of illegal immigrants has sharply increased during the last two decades. It costs many billions of tax dollars to support illegal immigrants, but at the mean time, the US government has been cutting back benefits from veterans who defend and protect the country.
Bush fails to alleviate this pain because he himself benefits from in so doing through special interest groups – big business corporations. 4) Port Security: Ever since 9/11, Bush has put heavy effort into strengthening security personnel at airport terminals, but ironically, we still have more than 95% inbound shipping containers and commercial jetliners coming through without inspection. 5) Economy: American middle class has been financially worse off than ever before. Outsourcing of millions of American manufacturing jobs complicated with millions of illegal aliens competing for the jobs, many Americans have been struggling for get a job that can maintain their previously earned standard of living. 6) The Patriot Act: The country needs a strong constitution to deal with Bush and his-likes. Right now, the White House claimed that the Constitution gives the president the power to conduct illegal spying international phone calls made by US citizens.
