A Fox News reporter argues his belief that George Bush was elected President in 2004 due to Newt Gingrich's Contract with America ten years prior. The appendix reprints seven Republican memos laying out the plan to take over the entire federal government, reward key constituencies, and "expose the great evil of past Democratic Congresses." In a book continually claiming to be stating facts about recent history, the lack of statistics and a bibliography is glaring.
