IT IS early in 2013, and America’s first black president, a liberal, has just been defeated after one term in office. The US is fighting in Mexico – part of the war on drugs  But the conservative new president is suddenly changing his views on how to save America. Frum used to write speeches for Bush, so obviously he knows Washington power structures inside out. Patriots is an engaging, insiders view of American politics. Walter Schotzke is a young man waiting for his fortune. His grandmother, who controls the wealth, procures him a job in a senator’s office where much to his surprise he does very well.

A good read but at close to 500 pages it could have used some serious editing
