Most of this was out of date before I read it but most of what Morris writes about and regrets that Obama would do, he did. Its a breezy account of the rampant anti-American attitude expressed by the elites in Washington but Morris at least has some credibility as a former top Clinton aid. He does offers suggestions and plans to act which based on the awareness of the American people has thankfully in the meantime begun to emerge. His series of books are written for the fairly aware person who wants to know more about how D.C. is selling the American people down the drain.

I suspect the reason this book has not been reviewed or owned by many other LibraryThing folks, is that it is viewed to be partisan in its presentation. Except for a one or two sections, I found that not to be the case. In fact I found it to be very even handed in pointing out issues, blame, and what can be done to fix it. I especially enjoyed the section regarding our sub-prime mortgage debauch. It explains very clearly how we built a house of cards. ( )
