Heroic Conservatism | [Michael J. Gerson]

Heroic Conservatism

In Heroic Conservatism, Gerson uses his own experiences in the upper tier of the Bush White House to show why America needs a conservatism that is heroic in its aspirations, including "compassionate conservative" proposals to confront global AIDS, combat poverty in America, and promote human rights and dignity abroad - initiatives that Gerson fought for during his time in government.

Publisher's Summary

Michael Gerson, who worked with George W. Bush on his most inspiring speeches, is considered by many Democrats and Republicans to be the most influential White House speechwriter since the Kennedy administration. He was also more than a speechwriter; he was a trusted insider who helped shape policy.

In Heroic Conservatism, Gerson uses his own experiences in the upper tier of the Bush White House to show why America needs a conservatism that is heroic in its aspirations, including "compassionate conservative" proposals to confront global AIDS, combat poverty in America, and promote human rights and dignity abroad - initiatives that Gerson fought for during his time in government.

Gerson has a unique ability to frame complex issues in a way that both challenges and inspires, and in Heroic Conservatism he delivers a new manifesto for the Republican Party and a fascinating memoir of a history-shaping presidency.

    "This should make you cry in humbleness!"

    Just the first beginning of this book, should make you never make fun of a man that doesn't have pride but love for others that most of us cannot ever find in ourselves. It is true that those that really care are overshadowed by those who only care about themselves. For how many times I have had to listen to jokes about a kind, educated, caring President, George Bush, and it makes me so ill every time. Those who make jokes are those filled with hate. President Bush, still loves them anyway. I have such respect and appreciation for President Bush for he still holds tight to his faith, hope and love. He truly cares about others and truly knows what is compassion. If you listen to this book, be ready for realizing that we all on this earth need each other and hate gets us no where and gives nothing to anyone, not even our selves. I have never been more happy to be a conservative. I know also now why I have always felt in my heart that George Bush, President Bush, is a good strong man with a good heart and strong spirit. I appreciate him very much and many others throughout the world should also. He is one of a kind.

    "Now I see"

    Well written though it gets a bit whiny. Interesting discussion of some of the things our current president has done for which he gets no credit.

    Also, I see why he has turned off a lot of the conservative community since the policies discussed here aren't conservative politics. They are simply conservative ideas put to the use of expanding government - since that is the only way anything good ever happens. It's not like "we the people" can handle doing good with our own money.
