Tem to demonstrate how the gap between America’s newest haves and have nots is no longer merely financial but instead includes the erosion of education employment government and community Dobbs proposes a series of measures to resolve each issue and incite people whose future is being mortgaged to benefit a powerful few to preserve their rights and dreams War on the Middle Class is provocative incendiary and bound to be widely discussed the perfect book to establish the terms of debate in this year’s midterm elections I really like Lou Dobbs while I pretty much think CNN is useless I do find his show to be pretty good Great book If you really want to know what s going on with regard to politics business policypractice etc in this country read this He doesn t engage in name calling mudslinging or any of that sort of stuff He DOES provide facts to back up his claims and plenty of credible resources to back up his facts Lest you think he s merely pandering to the Republican party he begins the book by telling the reader that he can t take seriously anyone who takes either party Republican or Democrat seriouslybecause neither party takes YOU seriously Lou is very honest about saying that he is a conservative and a registered Republicanthen he goes on to bash many of the very policies that party backs My only complaint is that he does refer often to his show and at times it seems that he s trying to drum up viewers This is the only reason I gave the book 4 instead of 5 stars

The Middle Kindle #209 Prominent CNN host and commentator Lou Dobbs unleashes his manifesto War on MOBI #224 on the vanishing American dream Through his nightly CNN show Lou on the Middle Kindle #209 Dobbs Tonight his syndicated radio program and his monthly magazine column on the Middle Class How PDFEPUB or Lou Dobbs has become one of America’s most visible popular and respected on the Middle Class How PDFEPUB or voices on business and financial matters Now with War on the Middle Class Dobbs takes an impassioned and rou An excellent read This book is fast paced and reads like a laundry list that never ends of how we are getting screwed over by our government s loyalties to their own parties and the special interests This book lays it all out I read this immediately after reading Ron Paul s The Revolution A Manifesto The two together are very powerful and I feel that both certain seem to be fairly neutral neither favoring one party over anotherI can assure you after reading this book the next time a politician says that they are there to helkp out the middle class you ll be upset and yell at the TV Oh yeah If that s REALLY true then why haven t you done anything about A B or C and actually used D to make things WORSE for the middle classThe only reason that I give this 4 stars is that it is in need of an update It was written in 2006 It is mostly critical of the Bush administration because it was written during the Bush administration Though there are accusations towards the Democrats they are far far less often This is not due to bias but rather the material present after all the book had to be topical However I do see how many liberals would see this as further proof that the Republicans do lots of bad things while the Democrats rarely do Nothing could be further from the truth Lou needs to update this and add a chapter or two covering Obama s first term to balance things out After all Obama is still carrying forward many of the practices of the Bush administration that have been critiued in this bookAn intelligent open minded reader aware of confirmation bias however can take the critiues towards Bush and apply them directly to Obama in areas where he carry s forth the same practices or makes no attempt to resolve the past injustices

Lou Dobbs ´ 2 Review

Sing stance on the all out class war that is turning the American dream into a nightmare The middle class has never been so vulnerable Its every feature is under assault by politicians and the lobbyists who court them big business corporations that are sending their jobs overseas and a media that relies on sensationalism instead of facts when reporting the news In a sweeping analysis Dobbs looks at every aspect of the decline of the middle class from a lack of political representation to America’s corrupt health care sys As a conservative I appreciate the way this book got me invested in certain causes I normally associate with Democrats For one thing Dobbs spends a lot of time castigating major corporations for their reckless business practices something liberals are always wailing about but Dobbs actually gives stats and factual evidence to show why his attacks are warranted This isn t just a they make a lot of money so they must be evil approach to the topic Instead of just saying that CEOs are paid too much and then uoting some astronomical number Dobbs shows how CEOs from various companies work together to get their salaries approved regardless of performance It s very much a you scratch my back and I ll scratch yours kind of thing which was never explained to me before Before reading this book I was willing to give CEOs the benefit of the doubt that they might actually be EARNING their outrageous salariesDobbs also has a lot to say on such topics as outsourcing lobbying illegal immigration and health care The health care bits are where the book really shows its age It was written nearly a decade ago He criticizes both the Right and the Left for their handling of these issues and it s refreshing to see a journalist in this day and age refusing to play partisan politics Although a self described liberal Republican Dobbs is especially harsh in his treatment of George W Bush though I can t imagine he d be any easier on Barak Obama had this book come out a few years laterDobbs is great at identifying major problems with the way America is being run but I m less convinced of the value of his proposed solutions His idea for fixing the health care system sounds a little too much like Obamacare and his idea for fixing public education uncomfortably resembles Common Core However Dobbs doesn t go into enough detail for me to know whether or not those national travesties accurately resemble the sort of thing he had in mind This is perhaps the only political book I ve ever read that could resonate with both the Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall Street crowd If our divided country ever becomes once again united in purpose I imagine it will be largely thanks to people like Lou Dobbs and books like WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS

    It's always interesting to read a pundit's book years later I'll have to catch up with him and see what he thinks about the current administrationI agree with a lot of what he says but I think he oversimplifies the immigration issue For instance he makes no distinction between immigrants and refugees

    This book was written in 2006 I was not sure how pertinent it would be for today It is a concise account how damaging different factors added to the decline of the middle class Fascinating logically true and worth understanding how this group in particular was ignored and needed change

    Good book to read around tax time I agree that we definitely need to fix our education system and maybe some of the other problems will also be solved We have an education system developed for the industrial revolution It is time to change it How about where children learn at their own pace and they don't move on until t
