Rush Limbaugh's The Way Things Ought To Be (Book Review)

Few books have rocked the publishing world like Rush Limbaugh's "The Way Things Ought To Be" (which he wrote by utilizing "talent on loan from God".) This book, along with author's daily radio program, literally launched a revolution - touching everything from the composition of Congress in 1994 to the resurrection of AM talk radio. Unlike his second book, "See, I Told You So", which deals in great part with the infant Clinton administration and the current events of the early 1990's, "The Way Things Ought To Be" is just what its title suggests - a point-by-point analysis of what ails America. The first four chapters of the book tackle Rush's personal road to success, the birth of his nationally-syndicated radio show, and the groundswell of popular support that rose up to embrace it.

The remainder of the book deals with timeless issues such as abortion, defending the 1980's (and specifically Ronald Reagan's record), AIDS, congressional malfeasance, animal rights, radical environmentalism, multiculturalism, feminism, the homeless, and Hollywood elitists. For the most part, all of these issues are at the forefront of the national debate to this day, making "The Way Things Ought To Be" as relevant for our time as when it was first published.

Concluding his book, Rush inserts a special chapter titled "Ronald Reagan: Setting Things Straight". Here, he tells the true story of the 1980's and the Reagan presidency, one you will never hear from your friends in the mainstream media. The book ends with an optimistic look at where the nation is headed, as well as a section titled "The Limbaugh Lexicon" that acts as a dictionary for people unfamiliar with the show and its unique vocabulary. In short, the Maha Rushie (in collaboration with Bo Snerdley) writes a book certain to leave feminazis and environmentalist wackos across the Fruited Plain on the near brink of assuming room temperature as they read statements that are documented to be almost always right; 97.9 percent of the time!

If you love The Rush Limbaugh Show, this book is a treasured classic. If you've never heard the show, then this book may well be the method by which you are drawn in. So be warned... Read this book only on the condition that you're prepared to become an EIB (Excellence In Broadcasting) addict - the only healthful addiction known to man!
