    Story
    (112)

    A harsh and revealing political exposé of two beloved presidents. Judge Andrew P. Napolitano reveals how Teddy Roosevelt, a bully, and Woodrow Wilson, a constitutional scholar, each pushed aside the Constitution’s restrictions on the federal government and used it as an instrument to redistribute wealth, regulate personal behavior, and enrich the government. Theodore and Woodrow exposes two of our nation’s most beloved presidents and how they helped speed the Progressive cause on its merry way.

    Joseph D. Klotz says: "The Case Against Theodore and Woodrow..."
    "Subjective"

    Would you try another book from Andrew Napolitano and/or Scott Moore?

    Depends on the subject. The performance is great


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew Napolitano again?

    Again, it depends, I've liked some of his past work


    What about Scott Moore’s performance did you like?

    I like the performance


    What character would you cut from Theodore and Woodrow?

    George Bush, Hillary Clinton,


    Any additional comments?

    This writer is obviously very subjective in his observations. He starts out by saying Wilson believes, Roosevelt believes, but doesn't provide the evidence. He ties in George W Bush and Hillary Clinton for his own subjective purposes. He makes a point to say that almost all US wars were illegal..where is the proof of that? He ties lynching to public education which made me scratch my head. While I am fully aware of the Progressives and the progressive era as I took the online course offered by Hillsdale college. They do not add their own personal politcal rants and complaints to the historical facts as the judge does in this book..Very disappointed.

    When a 14-year-old runs away, her parents turn to social media to find her - launching a public campaign that will expose their darkest secrets and change their family forever in this suspenseful and gripping debut for fans of Reconstructing Amelia and Gone Girl. Don't try to find me. Though the message on the kitchen white board is written in Marley’s hand, her mother Rachel knows there has to be some other explanation. Marley would never run away.

    Kate says: "Tedious Melodrama"
    "A Snoozer"

    Disgust


    Any additional comments?

    It was hard to stay awake listening to this story even though it should have been dramatic. A child is missing. Then the writer takes a cheap shot at our troops and implies that they are murderers. That was enough for me to take the toothpicks out of my eyes and stop trying to force myself to listen to this snoozer.
