    I doubt I'll read it. Most of the best bits will be explained by others.

    I sure as hell wish Biden was in that WH now!

    Where do you get off posting such crap to me?
    Teddy was a Progressive, MaryAnne. He left the GOP and founded the Progressive Party, and then ran for president on its ticket.

    Teddy Roosevelt nominated as Bull Moose candidate - Aug 07, 1912 - HISTORY.com

    I get off posting the truth to you. So sorry you view it as "crap".

    But frankly, that typifies the corporate Democratic Party faithful, such as yourself. As they say, there are none so blind as he who will not see.

    I have no doubt, anyone with the patience to wait can read a library copy, in the US. No need to enrich Mr. Wolff, although it doesn't sound as if he is a hack. Making him rich won't hurt my heart.

    I don't have the TIME to read all the the books about what a bizarre presidency Trump is running! I don't even have the time to read all the NEWS reports of the same. And I am retired!

    I want a book on Trump's presidency in 20 years' time, explaining what happened to make the American people so crazy, they elected him.....but I doubt I will live into my late 80's. I suppose I will die not knowing this.

    Or what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.

    Mysteries, both of them.

    I never mentioned Teddy Roosevelt’s Party. Just said I would have voted for him.

    When you do not know who Doug Jones is,I give up. I live in the present,not the past.

    BTW,Teddy Roosevelt was Progressive, the reason I would have voted for him.

    You can get it free at the Library. Just put your name in I do it all the time. Only one book I was going to buy was Hillblilly Elogy. The Author grew up about 30 miles from me. I received at as a Christmas present. Have loaned it out several times.

    I do not like online books.
    Thanks from Madeline and Dangermouse

    You’re full of crap. Why would a progressive vote for Reagan, and not Roosevelt? That defies logic. I sometimes wonder if you even know what the truth is.

    I will probably read it when it's available at the library but I won't purchase it. I'd rather wait for the mother of all books that will most likely come out a couple years after the end of the Administration so the impact of the policies can be weighed more accurately.
    Thanks from Madeline
