    If you think you know George Washington, think again. This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It's a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And, of course, the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all.

    Dell says: "My hero has been brought back. Thanks Glenn."

    What made the experience of listening to Being George Washington the most enjoyable?

    Simply that this man stood on conviction and you nailed it.


    What other book might you compare Being George Washington to and why?

    The real George Washington.


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty – was your favorite?

    I think that the hamilton and jefferson blow ups were very enlightening about our founding fathers.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel that the descriptions of the battles and the battles within the continental congress meetings were great depictions of the truth that our country faces even today. However, today we have more blotheating fools in our congress.

    A menacing force surrounds us. We see it, we feel it, we know it. The country we love is in grave peril. While politicians and "experts" prattle on about the debt crisis at home, and terrorism abroad, a more insidious homegrown threat is emerging. It endangers our future and undermines our present. The uncomfortable truth: We have become our own worst enemy.

    David says: "Laura Is brilliant. As usual."
    "Right on sister!"

    What did you love best about Of Thee I Zing?

    The specifics about our cultures decline with very simplistics descriptions. I see it all the time.


    What does Laura Ingraham and Raymond Arroyo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The passion of the situations.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Pay attention to the people in your own home because the cultural drain comes in the home in many ways. It is amazing!

    After listening to the audiobook; I observed a 16 yearold youngman in a 7/11 run out to his car a dime when 3 of us in the line offerred it up. The kid came back in and said, are you all waiting on me...I stated outloud that we were just waiting for him to pull his pants up above his hips. The youngman quickly corrected his pants amd stared straight into my eyes and I said, thank you. He responded politely, you are welcome and then he walked off. The lady in front of me said that she appreciated someone standing up to him. I jokingly said, he knows that I am a former Marine and will not stand for that sort of behavior. She said, how did he know that...it was him looking in my eyes and seeing discipline from within me that he saw. We all snickered and left the store.
