A Time to Fight
Reclaiming A Fair and Just AmericaBook - 2008
In January 2007, Democratic Senator Jim Webb galvanized America with his powerful, uncompromising response to President Bush's State of the Union Address. Newsweek declared his words left Bush's speech in the dust, and GQ magazine dubbed the freshman senator, the honorable enraged gentleman from Virginia. Webb brings that same intelligence, force, and firebrand style to this thorough, provocative assessment of the thorny issues facing America today. Citing the actions of presidents ranging from Andrew Jackson to Teddy Roosevelt to Dwight Eisenhower, A Time to Fight provides specific, viable ideas for ending the war in Iraq, restoring fairness to our economic system, correcting the direction of national security efforts, and developing greater government accountability. Webb's personal experiences as a much-decorated Marine, a widely traveled award-winning journalist and novelist, a high-placed member of the Reagan administration, and a senator with a son who fought as a Marine in Iraq allow him to bring a fresh perspective to the political dynamics that have shaped our country. His stirring, populist manifesto calls upon voters to make the choices that will change America for the better in this election season.
