Operation from the major players and provides an insider's book like no one else can a colorful unsparingly detailed but evenhanded narrative of how the House of Representatives became a house of ill repute the Tea Party PDF #200 Because of the bitterly divided political atmosphere in which we live this litera. The title of this excellent book by Robert Draper is based on a uote from a Congressman who was so frustrated with the “days of fraction” that he was not seeking re election after his fifth term in the 5th Congress of 1796 Yikes Draper does a masterful job of understanding and projecting the push and pulls of the new 112th Congress brought in 2010 by the Tea Party wave We travel with many of the new congressmen on their journey of discovery while also looking over the shoulders of the old guard who are trying to control the result Draper's point is much larger than same old same old that the Fisher Ames uote might indicate Rather he explores particularly through the eyes of the freshmen congressmen the Alice and Wonderland world of appearance and deception that is today’s politics As the Ames' uote makes abundantly clear getting something accomplished in Congress is a cruel slog What is different here perhaps is a meeting that Draper opens with On Obama's Inauguration night while the Democrats are celebrating at the Inaugural Balls a small group of Republican leaders vow to do everything to thwart any of the efforts of the new president whether that is consistent or inconsistent with their own ideology On a very real level the 2012 freshman are the result AND the victims of that eveningI’ll admit that you probably have to be a political junkie to really enjoy this stuff but I would also assert that until we fully understand the Escher inspired never ending circular staircase of Congressional action we have very little chance of landing on successful outcomes either there or as a country

I first heard about this book after an interview with the author on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart I was intrigued by Stewart's comment about politicians being real people and decided that I should read the book I must admit it was really good Given it was good in a now I am frightened about the state of our country way but it was still good The book mostly follows the RepublicanTea Party freshman that were voted into office during the 2010 midterm electionsI enjoyed it because it offered some insight about a select few individuals that helped me to understand why they do and vote the way that they do Granted what they do isn't effective nor efficient as illustrated by the book but it offers insight nonetheless The book has a liberal slant at times but for the most part it stays pretty middle of the road and keeps the reader interested This book had the potential of being very dry but the author and his way of telling the stories keeps the reader engaged from start to finishFor of my books and reviews visit wwwthebookwheelblogcom
