In Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right, Goldberg speaks for the millions of Americans who are saying, “Enough!” Enough of lunatics like Rosie O’Donnell who think “radical Christianity” is “as big a threat to America as radical Islam.” Enough of the hyperbolic liberal rhetoric comparing Bush to Saddam and Mel Gibson to Hitler. Enough of the hyperpartisan, ultra-PC liberal media, which often seem more sympathetic to the “victims of humiliation” at Abu Ghraib than to our troops dying at the hands of Iraqi fundamentalists. And please, enough of the military-hating crazies who run San Francisco.

But Goldberg has also had it with hypocritical Republicans who say they’re for small government but then spend our hard-earned tax money like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store. He’s also had it with weak and timid Republicans who won’t stand up and fight against racial preferences, too afraid that the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jacksons of the world will call them bigots. In plain English, he’s had it with Republicans who are afraid to be conservative. If the wimps on the Right fail to regain their courage, recover their principles, and reclaim their sense of fiscal responsibility, the crazies on the Left just might win the White House.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Goldberg is the former award-winning CBS reporter who ravaged his former employer in his previous bestseller, Bias. In this book, the irascible Goldberg expands his polemic to include what he considers the ‘crazies’ of the left—whom he portrays as milquetoasts for their social programs and politically correct motives—and the ‘wimps’ of the right—whom he sees as traitors for compromising on social and fiscal policies. Read by the author, in a nasal New York tone that barely masks his contempt, this is a typically unsparing indictment so filled with personal invective that one wonders if anyone else could have read it as effectively.”

    " Although I found that I don't agree with the author on everything, I do agree with him on a lot of things. He tells it like it is and does not worry about being politically correct. It was an enjoyable read and I even got a few laughs out of it. "

    " It is always a pleasure to read anything by Bernie Goldberg, if for no then reason then because of the wit and humor that he brings to the discussions of contemporary issues. This is a very varied account of many of his personal gripes that he has with both left and the right in the US, but at the final analysis it is still the right that comes somewhat ahead, although it would seem it is primarily because they are better at not getting their foot stuck in their mouth as often as the liberals seem to be doing these days. One of the main things that Goldberg has an issue with is the lack of civility that goes on in public discourse, regardless of if it has to do political speech or just general politeness in everyday life. It is to Bernie's credit that he succeeds at dismantling those he disagrees with without having to resort to cheap ad hominem attacks and vicious recriminations. It would be great if some other best-selling authors followed in his footsteps. Otherwise, we may have to wait for another book by Bernard Goldberg. "

    " A disgruntled conservative tells us why our two political parties have lost their way. "

    " Love it. You will too if you want a smaller gov't that leaves you alone to be successful and charitable on your own. Great analysis of the liberal shift and conservative sheepish retreat "
