Patriotic Grace: What It Is and Why We Need It Now
The ramp crashed down and the soldiers lunged forth. Some were hit with shrapnel as they struggled through to the beach. Others made it to land only to be hit as they crossed it. The stuck ramp probably saved John's life. After he'd rushed forward he turned and saw, to his horror, that the man who'd been next to him the whole trip, the coxswain to whom he'd barked orders—"Hard to port, make it smart, we'll look for an opening!
The shell likely would have hit John too if the bolt hadn't stuck and the door hadn't jammed and he hadn't run for the hammer. See All Customer Reviews.

I get the sense from her writing that she like President then candidate Obama very much; I can't help but wonder about what she made and makes of Sarah Palin. Noonan is one of my favorite conservative writers: she is smart, thoughtful, moderate, and a pleasure to read.

I want to say that I haven't read but have heard of Ms Noonan, and thought that the book would be pro Republican, ra ra ra, but I was mistaken.
For one, I find it sad that unless an approval ratings attached to stuff, most Presidents will NOT do things that will be for the betterment of the country. See, it s I want to say that I haven't read but have heard of Ms Noonan, and thought that the book would be pro Republican, ra ra ra, but I was mistaken. Are you serious? She also spoke on certain individuals who predicted the future. Those who tried to do the right thing and paid later.
The list goes on. No, I didn't agree on all things, but I must say, some was enough to make me think. Feb 22, Jon Box rated it really liked it. The book is a bit dated coming at the end of the George W. Bush presidency, but the guiding principles she asks we adhere to are still necessary if not more relevant today. Her overall call for "patriotic grace" is thoughtful, well intentioned and spot on--she presents a great case.
I agree. However, grace seems to suffer a corresponding blind spot in her unending criticism for every Bush effort during the country's initial seven-year response to Global Islamic Terrorism--he could do nothing rig The book is a bit dated coming at the end of the George W. However, grace seems to suffer a corresponding blind spot in her unending criticism for every Bush effort during the country's initial seven-year response to Global Islamic Terrorism--he could do nothing right!
Apparently, she is blinded by her never-ending love for President Reagan coming at a different time in the Cold War era. I can't understand her loathing hate for Bush--like President Obama says, it was all his Bush's fault.

I loved her short-and-sweet-and-to-the-point writing style when I could catch up with her writer's ADHD. Kudos for making her point with the fewest possible words but I will have to read this again to fully appreciate it.
Her premise is both refreshing and scarry-as-hell. Getting my passport has just moved up my priority list and after reading this I am getting them for the kids too. No more ignorant bliss for this household. Note to self: buy batteries and bottled water too. I am a liberal who h I loved her short-and-sweet-and-to-the-point writing style when I could catch up with her writer's ADHD. I am a liberal who has always gotten along with conservatives so I am, unfortunately, the choir here but her target audience may have only been those in D.
Overall, fascinating read that I highly recommend. I suck at Macro perspectives and she offers up a lot of them. Oct 03, Julie rated it really liked it. This book couldn't be more timely.

She leans toward the conservative side, but if you can't overlook that,for the reasons she has stated, you've missed the whole point of her book! Apr 03, Tammy Downing rated it it was amazing.
A really good book about how we all need to put aside the partisan BS and work together to make America better for everyone. Although I don't necessarily agree with everything Peggy Noonan believes, she makes a very strong case in this book that we don't need to agree but we need to be calm, rational adults and work on our issues rather than just point fingers and blame the other guy. This is my personal philosophy and I wish more people felt this way. We're all human beings, none better or wors A really good book about how we all need to put aside the partisan BS and work together to make America better for everyone.
We're all human beings, none better or worse than any other. While I didn't agree with everything, I found that she was fairly even-handed given her partisan background on how we came to be in the unfortunate place we were at time of last year's elections; the obstructionist stance of Congressional Republicans being exactly the situation she warns should not be allowed to occur.
Kudos for her in blasting the TSA and DHS as symptomatic of the failure of the Bush Administration, as well as repeating her opposition to the term "Homeland Security" as creepil While I didn't agree with everything, I found that she was fairly even-handed given her partisan background on how we came to be in the unfortunate place we were at time of last year's elections; the obstructionist stance of Congressional Republicans being exactly the situation she warns should not be allowed to occur.

For someone who rarely reads non-fiction and almost never reads political books, this was quite an eye-opener. The writing style was conversational and a little rambling at times, but the casual tone softened the serious and sometimes critical message in a positive way.

It makes for a very For someone who rarely reads non-fiction and almost never reads political books, this was quite an eye-opener. It makes for a very thought-provoking read, especially in our day and age. Jul 10, Sarah C rated it liked it.
I learned Peggy Noonan has the most elloquent way of phrasing some of the most politically charged topics. She is queen of the euphemism. Although I was too young to remember Ronal Regan's presidency, Peggy has certainly raised my curosity to understand his politics and impact on our country. Never hesitate to read one of her books or articles - it is a gaurantee that you will read something well written, thoughtful, and intelligent even if you do not agree with what she has to say.

I bought this on audio book for my husband for his stocking. The book, read by the author, did not disappoint.
