Overview

Fresh on the heels of his #1 New York Times bestseller, Stupid White Men, Michael Moore returns with a bold but hilarious act of sedition as he seeks to overthrow the "Thief in Chief" and effect the kind of grass roots change that will shake the very foundations of our country.

In case anyone in Washington hasn't noticed, Americans are fed up with the status quo. In this, the first shot fired over the bow of the 2004 Presidential election, Michael Moore aims to unseat the man who slithered into the White House on tracks built by the bloody hands of Enron and greased with the oil of his daddy. As if an unelected, semi-literate president weren't problem enough, America's Democrats have managed to take the liberty out of "liberal," signing on with the G.O.P. for dirty corporate money and the ill-gotten gains of globalization. The "left" is just as satisfied as the right to stand idly by as the chasm between the haves and the have-nots grows wider and wider. Thank god for Michael Moore because DUDE, WHERE'S MY COUNTRY? tells us precisely what went wrong, and, more importantly, how to fix things. In a voice that is fearless, funny, and furious, Moore takes readers to the edge of righteous laughter and divine revenge. Tapping into the collective and widespread discontent of everyday Americans, DUDE, WHERE'S MY COUNTRY? provides an incisive look at Republicans, Democrats, and the robber barons of corporate America as it maps out what regular citizens can do to storm the halls of power and reclaim their stolen country.

Wow! A Huge Wake-Up Call!

I was elated at the wealth of "Underground News" information that Moore shared in this book. I bought the paperback first, but I hadn't had time to read it so I got it on CD and I was glad I did! I already knew half of the information he shared and it was refreshing to hear someone share the rest without the restriction of Major Media stopping the truth from being disseminated. Moore reminds us of the historical US foreign policy that we never hear revisited on CNN, MSNBC, or the major networks because of the restrictions of the powers that be, and he asks the hard questions that SHOULD have been answered about 9/11 and beyond. This is a must read for every American that is fed up with the way our government is treating the masses and becoming Big Brother. And although I didn't listen to this until 11/2006, the information is still extremely relevant to the present situation in the Middle East and so-called "War on Terror" that they use to take away our civil liberties daily.

Brilliantly articulates all the arguments that American people need to make about Iraq war, main stream media, big business, current administration, and many other things that don't make sense. Enjoyed listening to all CDs of this book.

What a flaming idiot

This is the second book I've listened to by Michael Moore, and as with "Stupid White Man" (what a double standard we hold - what publisher would print a book entitled, "Stupid Black Men?"), I've never heard a diatribe so full of bull****. It's clear that he has no idea what is statistically relevant (and quite often distorts statistically figures in a way that is just plain unethical) and is ignorant of most all the things about which he rants. The real blow came when he talked about George Orwell's "1984" a book he has either not read or has entirely missed the point (I'm inclined to believe the former). He's an outrageous hypocrate, but worse, he's a self-satisfied individual who believes that his views give him the moral and intellectual high-ground. It's a behavior I've observed on both the right and left, and frankly it's simply unacceptable behavior. Please, if you consider yourself at all objective, read "Do As I Say (Not as I Do)" by Peter Schweizer. Thanks.

This was the first book I have rented. I am very , very satisfied. I am so glad I joined the rental club. I have read some prior reviews and think some members' reviews of this book focus on the "voice" of the narrator...which I thought was fine ..and not on the "content of the text."....which is fabulous Michael Moore!

Unlistenable - a plot by the right to keep us from hearing Moore's message?

Unlistenably bad reader. Sing song. When I saw that Michael Moore wasn't reading, I thought: Good, at last they've had the sense not to let some celebrity read his own good book badly. They've hired a professional. Well, along the lines of Michael Moore thinking, I have to ask is this reader a plot by the radical right to keep people from hearing his message? Be afraid, be very afraid. And don't rent this; get the book.

A must read for all Americans. Great fun to read (listen to) while being informative. Get to understand the true motives of your government, and what you can do about it.

Contradictions abound!

I'm not a Michael Moore fan, but enjoy hearing his opinions. He makes some interesting points and raises some questions for G-Dub that do need addressing. However, it is annoying the way he states everything so "Matter of Fact." The problem is that he condemns Bush for doing this, yet he does it himself. Other times he contradicts himself using his own logic. He uses Bush's same scare tactics to have the reader believe that the Patriot Act will force government employees to read your purchase receipts. Does the government really care or is Mike taking things to an absurd level? I am guilty of giving poor examples, which is a tactic I picked up from listening to this book. Had he used stronger examples for his points instead of going for cynicism I might have been able to hand it to ol' Mike. In the end, these were drawn out repetitious rants. I hope these aren't celebrated as gospel. The reader was monotone at times, but I believe he did the best he could with the material.

I love Michael Moore but he didn't narrate his own book, which I found odd. The narrator couldn't keep my attention like Michael would have and as a result, I didn't finish listening to this book

American politics really are funny, here's proof

Even though Michael Moore can be a bit preachy at times, he just seems so sane. American politics can be exhausting in an election year, but Moore is funny enough to get his point across without losing his readers. And he does love Canada.
