Behind all the bipartisanship, dimpled-chad Democrats are sharpening their knives for 2002. But David Horowitzwhose Art of Political War helped put George W. Bush in the White Houseis back with an indispensable manual for wartime politics. If the Democrats thought wed forget who demoralized our military, eviscerated the CIA, and let America become a playground for terrorists, theyre in for a rude awakening. How to Beat the Democrats makes sure it wont be politics as usual in 2002.For Democrats, politics is permanent war. Every conflict is a contest for power, every battle is about burying their enemiesRepublicans. With racial shakedown artists and intolerant progressives rearing their heads at homeand terrorists striking at us from abroadHorowitzs uncompromising and principled commitment to freedom is more needed than ever.Horowitzs opening salvo shows why the Democrats cant be trusted with the nations security. For years, the party has subordinated sound defense policy to a radical ideology untamed even by,September 11. Horowitzs unmatched strategic powers are on full display in his enumeration of the principles for a winning political campaign, which he then applies to the specific issues that will shape the 2002 election. Returning to the subject of war, he concludes with an exposi of the anti-American escapades of Noam Chomsky and his comrades of the unrepentant left.In How to Beat the Democrats, youll learn: The four fundamental principles of politics Six lessons from the near-heist of the 2000 election Democratic plans for revenge in 2002 Horowitzs bold strategy for GOP victory How the left still tries to undermine American defense

Library Journal Review

This lively and opinionated book is aimed primarily at Republican true believers, giving the already-converted a bone on which to chew. It is unlikely to convince fence-sitters to join the cause. Horowitz, a well-known political pundit who documented his conversion from Left to Right in Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey, argues that Republicans must wage warfare against the enemy among us. The Democrats "rely on bribery and fear," contends Horowitz, and the Republicans are the only ones who can save the country from threats against our national security. Part 4 is a series of vignettes railing against Horowitz's favorite targets: Bill and Hillary Clinton, antiwar demonstrators during the Vietnam era, the 1960s, Noam Chomsky, and others. But once the author gets past these venomous attacks often setting up the Democrats as straw men he offers interesting and sometimes useful campaign advice, culminating in a comprehensive electoral program for the Republicans in 2002.
