Coulter’s book is currently listed as No. 2 on Amazon’s best-seller list, while Clinton’s book has dropped from a high of No. 2 to No. 8. Topping sales at Amazon is the latest Harry Potter book, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.”
“Treason,” a follow-up to Coulter’s best-selling “Slander,” contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign-policy issue from the fight against communism at home in the early Cold War days to the struggle with the Soviet empire to the current war on terrorism.
“Liberals have a preternatural gift for always striking a position on the side of treason,” writes Coulter. “Everyone says liberals love America, too. No, they don’t.” From Truman to Kennedy to Carter to Clinton, America has contained, appeased and retreated, she says, often sacrificing America’s best interests and security. With the fate of the world in the balance, Coulter argues that liberals should leave the defense of the nation to conservatives.
Re-examining the 60-year history of the Cold War and beyond – including the career of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair, Ronald Reagan’s challenge to Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall,” the Gulf War and America’s present war on terrorism – Coulter reveals in “Treason” how liberals have been “horribly wrong” in all their political analyses and policy prescriptions. McCarthy, exonerated by the Venona Papers if not before, was basically right about Soviet agents working for the U.S. government, writes the best-selling author. Hiss turned out to be a high-ranking Soviet spy (who consulted Roosevelt at Yalta). Reagan, ridiculed throughout his presidency, ended up winning the Cold War. And George W. Bush, also an object of ridicule, has by all accounts performed exceptionally in responding to America’s newest threats at home and abroad.
