Karl Rove went out of his way to insult the author to his face recently, calling this book "a poorly researched piece of trash." Edmund Wright had Dennis Miller had in stitches in a recent appearance on his radio show. In other words: this book is a GRAND SLAM HOMERUN.

What Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich and Pat Caddell have been saying about the establishment recently - was written by C. Edmund Wright months and years ago. This mind boggling work might just crown Wright as conservatism's new prophet - but it won't get Wright invited to Rove's cocktail parties!

All Mark Steyn and Ann Coulter fans will appreciate the style. As you read it, you will love how ahead of the curve it is.  Join Wright in defeating the wizards like Rove, Haley Barbour and Frank Luntz in the battle for the messaging soul of the conservative movement ahead of 2014 and 2016.  That's why this book was written. That's why you MUST READ IT. 

For millions wondering what planet the consultants live on…the Rove mindset is examined like never before! The battle plan for the coming GOP civil war!

This is NOT second guessing or Monday morning  quarter backing….this book has been years in the making

"PURE GOLD! It made me so mad at times I almost had to stop. But I couldn't stop, and it made me cheer at times too. WHAT A READ!"

The most astonishing analysis of the 2012 election is available now…from a writer who has seen it coming for many years.  Why wait for the pundits to understand?

This is a stunning, superb summary of the establishment mess….”

"Entertaining, well written, and MAN is he one smart person"

"C. Edmund Wright was the absolute best guest talk-radio can deliver; brilliant, articulate, fascinating, funny; I can't say enough, much less too much. C. Edmund is great on the major headlines of the moment."
-- 40 year icon of talk radio Barry Farber, after interviewing the author recently. 

There will never be a more cogent analysis of this election.  Wright’s journey from before 2000 until today will resonate - and you will shout YES HE GETS IT! - as moments that led to this day are laid out just as you observed them. 

“The dots connect…an astonishing indictment of the consultants”

With victory at hand, a failed President reduced to smallest campaign imaginable, see why the Republican elites ran their typical campaign.  Being an outsider - with enough inside access to fully see the great divide play out - Wright has the perfect vantage point from which to observe.

“A coherent analysis of why we had an incoherent message…”

See the history outlining exactly why it is that the GOP establishment always leaves votes on the table.  This work is the inevitability of history unfolding from a writer who can see clearly and articulate masterfully.  Relive the moments that preordained this day. 

“I’m so fired up!  Thank you for telling the truth. Game on!”

WTF contains the profound truth that is usually only revealed after years of hindsight.  Written with an understanding of the process of historical inevitability, this book will validate in an amazing way.  Yes, you were right all along!

“Amazingly constructed…and sums up our feelings….our heart…”

A back to the future look at how Obama was destined to fail from day one, and yet the Republican establishment was destined to fail even worse.  Annoy Joe Scarborough, Peggy Noonan, David Brooks and especially Karl Rove…buy this book!

Pull quotes from inside WTF:

-
The image of a typical OWS encampment allows us a peak at the future, which is a powerful object lesson by itself.  The fear of even having this discussion with the voters is why we are not happy with the establishment.  They would rather change the subject to something trite like “jobs and Ohio” without realizing that a communist movement central to the Democrat universe is about “jobs and Ohio.”
-
One thing the GOP must do is clean house of all the little naive “daddy got me a job” consultants, and hire some folks who have actually been in the real world for a while. 
-
Apparently in the mind of Democrat consultants, women should vote the concerns between their legs over the concerns between their ears. 
-
Pundits may drone on about moderates and independents and low information voters, but nothing turns moderates, independents and low information voters into higher information voters like a campaign that draws sharp and clear distinctions, and one that generates enthusiasm
-
Perhaps Newt would have swung and missed, but Mitt was out on called strikes.
-
Obama thought the first thing to do to turn our economy around would be to help trial lawyers destroy present day companies for decisions made many years ago.  Do they teach that at Harvard Law, or Harvard Business?
-
Instead of focusing on this in 2012, the GOPe had all kinds of tortured internal debates about Romney’s tax returns instead.  To the establishment, having incompetent felons running government is just not a problem, yet having a rich and generous nominee with competent accountants apparently is.
-
The man from Texas is indeed profoundly hated by the left. But that is not the point.  The man from Texas is not hated alone.The left has projected their hatred of him onto us. His refusal to fight back was not the individual "falling on the sword" he thought it was.  When he refused to fight, he let us all down.
-
McCain was almost irrelevant, which is hysterical considering he has spent every waking moment for forty years desperate to remain relevant
-
McCain stumbled into the Palin pick out of misconception as he fancied Palin as a young McCain, and not a young Reagan.
-
If you really want to get sick, do some research on how the brunt of the crisis might have been avoided simply by suspending the “mark to market” regulation imbedded in the Sarbanes-Oxley bill. This law, a bureaucratic accounting illusion to begin with, turned a future balance sheet challenge for some banks into an immediate cash crisis for the entire world.
-
It’s the perfect crime and the grandest of all larcenies.  America is being stolen in broad daylight. 

In other words, they should look at a focus group as a starting point the for voter education, instead of an end point of candidate capitulation. 
-
Liberals in power have simply made borrowing too easy and drilling too hard. 
-
As long as we run low information campaigns, we will suffer at the hands of low information voter.
-
A campaign will never succeed if it’s built on the premise that offending soccer moms in southern Ohio is a fate worse than losing the entire American experiment.  Such campaigns are inspired by focus groups, and isolated from reality.
-
According to Rove’s professed “acute Understanding,” if a voter thinks Bush is to blame for the economy, we must AGREE with him.  If the voter thinks Obama personally took out bin Laden, AGREE with her.  If the voter thinks Republicans want to stop all sexual activities, RUN AWAY from the issue.  If the voter thinks Palin is a dolt, REINFORCE that idea.  Mr. “Acute Understanding” thinks we can actually win this way.  Who is the dolt again?
-
Conservatism takes longer than the confines of a single focus group to understand, and yet, Rove insists that he can gain “an acute understanding” on the basis of focus group data.  That’s nutty.
-
This mindset is foreign to the entrepreneur’s very fiber.  This kind of thing is what keeps the movers and shakers from moving and shaking.  This is what motivates Atlas to shrug.  This is what liberal elites know.  This is what they want.
-
And to folks who believe “you didn’t build that,” this is music to their ears.  They either believe it in ignorance or cheer it with their resentment.  Or both.  And it’s not just Dodd Frank.  This is what will make everything about Obama Care like pulling teeth, including pulling teeth.  This is the EPA and the INS and the IRS and the TSA and all the other alphabet agencies becoming the focus of our lives.
-
There is nothing in this great game that will ultimately defeat the entrepreneur.  It is simple human nature.  There is, however, one way to defeat the entrepreneur and thereby ruin an entrepreneurial economy. Change the very nature of the game.   Yes, rig the game so that honesty and hard work and innovation are merely coins of a foolish realm.  Rig the game so that the little microbial rules become more important than the game itself  - thereby elevating the little human microbes who sit in government cubicles 40 hours a week with no risk above the dreamers who work 100 hour weeks and who are willing to risk everything.
-
But the ominous impact is that below the surface, this dynamic depresses and numbs the human spirit of the would-be self-starting entrepreneur.  And do not think for a minute that this is by accident.
-
Mistakes like this one are fear based and symptomatic of the Republican consultant, who lives in a vacuum of venial and un-related single issues, and assumes voters live there too.  The idea of melding a socially conservative principal with libertarian disdain of unlimited government power is just a bridge too far for the Lilliputian consultant mind, especially one frozen by the irrational fear of being called homophobic.   

The subject of Obama’s awfulness was not what the establishment wanted because Mitt’s not very good at that subject.  And besides, soccer moms won’t like it either, or so we’re told.  The arrogant and controlling establishment was telling us to shut up, sit down, and listen to our bettors – and everything would work out just fine.  In this way, the GOP establishment is similar to very thing we fight against in the Federal government, the arrogant controlling assumption that the elites know what we really need.  This problem is inherently limiting when your message is ostensibly about decentralizing control, and why Mitt’s message was inherently limited.

Compared to Axelrod’s escapades, the mind numbing use of focus groups and phony polls by James Carville and George Stephanopoulos during the Clinton years is child’s play.  Axelrod does not merely use deception.  He IS deception. 
-
Newt and his official staff, including the consultants inside WOF, were so obsessed with Mitt’s campaign that they forgot about Obama, whoever the hell he is, and refused to acknowledge that Santorum even existed.  Those were two awful mistakes.
-
Social liberals are being naïve when they discount the fiscal cost of moral depravity, and social conservatives are naïve to ignore the moral cost of fiscal depravity.
-
The technical term for the extension of a campaign like Huckabee’s is also known as the “Fox News Channel audition period.”
