A former Special Assistant for Foreign Affairs in the Department of Defense from 1986 to 1988 and California State Assemblyman from 2004 to 2010, Chuck DeVore has moved to Texas to accept the position of Senior Visiting Scholar for Fiscal Policy at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
Mr. DeVore generously took the time from his very busy schedule to read Never Allow A Crisis To Go To Waste on the plane during business trips and then pen a most kind and informative review for Amazon, observing:
Bart DePalma’s “Never Allow a Crisis To Go To Waste,” is named after the unintentionally illuminating post-election comments of President Obama’s then chief-of-staff, Rahm Emanuel, now Chicago mayor. Emanuel was referring to the opportunity Obama had to remake America, as he said immediately following, crises, “…are opportunities to do big things.”
Just what those “big things” are DePalma explores in gripping detail, taking the reader through the history of the President’s mentors, from socialist goals, both hidden and open, and methods, both violent and working within “the system.”…
DePalma’s litany of Obama administration actions is astonishing when set out in a methodical manner. So much was happening in the U.S. in late 2008 through the 2010 elections that it was very hard for most Americans to fully comprehend the scale of change wrought by Obama and his allies in Congress.
