Victor Gold wants his party back.

Gold is the former press aide to Barry Goldwater and the former speechwriter and senior advisor for George H. W. Bush. He is incensed that the Neo-Cons and the Evangelical Right have betrayed the ideals of the conservative cause. Now he's fighting back.

A Republican insider for 40 years, Gold is ready to tell all about the war being waged for the GOP's soul, the elder Bush's opinion of his son's presidency, the significance of the Democratic resurgence, and how Goldwater would have reacted to it all.

Among Gold's explosive disclosures is the truth about Cheney's manipulation of George W., and the chilling, puppet-like role of the President amongst Neo- and Theo-Conservatives.

"Entertaining, provocative . . . Mr. Gold is on to something."
-The Washington Times

"For those disillusioned with the state of the GOP, this quick, uncompromising polemic provides substantial support, along with a large dose of cold comfort."
-Publishers Weekly

"Like his political mentor Barry Goldwater, Gold pulls no verbal punches in telling the story of how the Bush–Cheney White House has made a mockery of the conservative values it claims to uphold."
-Frank Mankiewicz, former press secretary to Robert Kennedy and George McGovern's campaign manager

"Victor Gold unleashes a bitter yet comic blend of ferocity and ridicule at the neo-conservatives and theocrats who have taken over his party."
-Jules Witcover

From the Inside Flap:

Victor Gold wants his party back.
Gold is the former press aide to Barry Goldwater, the founder of the conservative movement, as well as the former speechwriter and senior advisor for George H. W. Bush. And he is incensed that the Neo-Cons and their strange bedfellows, the Evangelical Right, have stolen his party and betrayed the ideals of the conservative cause. Now heis fighting back.
After four decades as a Republican insider, Gold is ready to tell all about the war being waged for the soul of the GOP, including the elder Bushis opinion of his sonis work domestically and abroad, the significance of the newly elected Congress, and how Goldwater would have reacted to it all.
In this critique of the Bush administration, Gold reveals, among other explosive disclosures, how George W. has been used and manipulated by the vice president. His detailing of the presidentis puppet-like role amongst Neo- and Theo-Conservatives is utterly chilling.
?Victor Gold served as deputy press secretary to Barry Goldwater in the 1964 presidential campaign, press secretary to Vice President Spiro Agnew from 1970 to 1974, and speechwriter and senior advisor to George H. W. Bush in the 1980s. He is a personal friend of the Bush family and many other prominent politicians. He collaborated with George H. W. on his autobiography Looking Forward, coauthored a work of satirical fiction, The Body Politic, with Lynne Cheney, and is a national correspondent for Washingtonian magazine.
