In his 1996 #1 New York Times bestseller Were Right, Theyre Wrong, political strategist James Carville eviscerated the Republican economic agenda and debunked many of the GOPs ludicrous positions on national issues such as health care, welfare, tax reform, and economic growth. Now, twenty years after the books publication, Carville acknowledges that not much has changed. In fact, he maintains that it was the Democratic policies enacted by Presidents Clinton and Obama that salvaged Americas financial well-being during the last two decades, saving us from a collapse that George W. Bush and the Republican Congressional majorities inspired. In Were Still Right, Theyre Still Wrong, Carville analyzes how the Republican party has ultimately failed to deliver on its promises and how Donald J. Trumpthe partys likely nominee in the 2016 presidential electionis the embodiment of that failureand worse. Make no mistake, says Carville: Trumps ascendance is no accident, but a revealing sign that the GOP is intellectually bankrupt and on the wrong side of todays critical issues, including economic inequality and global warming. Written with Carvilles trademark sarcasm, folksiness, wit, and downhome common sense, Were Still Right, Theyre Still Wrong is a timely guide for voters, politicians, and journalists trying to make sense of our countrys most divisive and contentious election of the century.From the Hardcover edition.
