Possibly because Frum knows that conservatives tune in to Crossfire and The McLaughlin Group because of Buchanan. I'm SO disappointed with David Frum's new book, What's Right.

Possibly because Frum knows that conservatives tune in to Crossfire and The McLaughlin Group because of Buchanan. No other conservative, not even David Frum, has that sort of following. Possibly because Buchanan isn't obedient to the Israelis lobby and Frum is Jewish. After ten years of faithfully reading his columns and articles and listening to him on the radio every chance I get, I was expecting him to continue targeting Socialist welfare mothers, immigrant parasites and Black opium addicts with his usual brilliance and precision.

David Frum's new collection of essays and columns is like the curate's egg good in parts. He sometimes provides insightful defenses of the free market; but curious blind spots spoil the book. Frum completely fails to grasp the tension between a free economy and a militaristic foreign policy. Moreover, the merest mention of anyone to his right excites him to frenzy, a tendency he also manifested in his earlier book, Dead Right, when the same topic arose. What will his next book be called, What's Dead?) In his assault, he evinces a remarkable capacity to misstate facts

David Frum celebrates a conservatism that defends both liberty and . He is the author of nine books. His first book was Dead Right, published in 1994.

David Frum celebrates a conservatism that defends both liberty and morality. Frum dissects such current political figures as Pat Buchanan, Newt Gingrich, Colin Powell, and Jack Kemp, offering insight into the mechanics of Republican party politics as well. His latest book, Trumpocracy: The Corruption of The American Republic, was published in January 2018. He lives in Washington, D. C.

I'm SO disappointed with David Frum's new book, What's Right. After ten years of faithfully reading his columns and articles and listening to him on the radio every chance I get, I was expecting him to continue targeting Socialist welfare mothers, immigrant parasites and Black opium addicts with his usual brilliance and precision. But what did I get? All this vague nonsense about "Fiscal Responsibility" and "Tomorrow's Children" and "Coalition Building" - it's as if he's writing political science fiction! Look, I'm not saying that David's not still clever in his own special little way, but I think he'd better start shaping up and responding to what his readers want before they wake up and realize that he'd rather hear himself blather on about nothing than really fix what's wrong with America today. Because I can GUARANTEE you that there are at least twenty other conservative writers currently competing for the public's money and attention who aren't afraid to take on the communist media, who aren't hesitant to deliver hard-hitting right commentary, and who don't spend whole books ruminating about these esoteric topics just because they happen to be trendy. Remember, David: it's a free market. You'd better get your act together before YOU'RE the one begging for change. And that's a fact.

Analytically, David Frum is the most powerful thinker in conservative ranks today. He realizes that many "conservative" politicians in office today are not really conservative. Newt Gingrich is complicit in NASA spending, a horrendous waste of money. The centrist Eisenhower was right when he responded- "a man to the moon-WHY?!" Bud Shuster, lifetime American Conservative Union Rating of 95%, is truly only a pork barreling log roller. If he had his way, all of American would be just one big highway. Do you want to see Shuster's ideal town of the future? Visit America's ugliest small town, Breezewood, PA. Shuster is hardly a conservative. As for Jack Kemp, once a conservative darling, is there any social program he would cut? Is there any social program he doesn't want to see funded at the same level as Ted Kennedy would have it funded? No and no. Kemp is hardly a conservative. Yes Frum knows all the frauds for what they are. Frum's declaration that Pat Buchanan is a socialist borders on the insane. Yet Frum's personal hatred of Buchanan borders on the insane. Why? Possibly because Buchanan is more brilliant than David Frum. Possibly because Frum knows that conservatives tune in to Crossfire and The McLaughlin Group because of Buchanan. No other conservative, not even David Frum, has that sort of following. Not even close. Possibly because Buchanan isn't obedient to the Israelis lobby and Frum is Jewish. Frum's vindictiveness towards Buchanan is famous in conservatism's ranks; his attack of Buchanan in The American Spectator in 1991 not only widened the chasm between paleo-conservatives and neo-conservatives to the point where the two sides (briefly united during the Reagan Administration and the Cold War) are at open, blood curdling warfare but also cost The American Spectator hundreds of subscriptions, including mine. One last note on this would-be conservative Pope. David Frum is married to Danielle Crittenden. She is intelligent but a "conservative" feminist(an oxymoron, right) to boot. Obviously, she has chosen to not take her husband's last name. Both forget that one of the things conservatism is all about are traditions. Conservative traditions include the wife taking the husband's surname and the male head-of-household. David Frum, so quick to condemn other conservatives for deviating from the true creed, ought to consider some of his own deviations from the conservative creed.
