Reviews

"The Mendacity of Hope is a roundhouse punch at the notion that Obama is anything but a conventional corporate liberal, supine before the moneyed interests."--Michael Tomasky, The New York Review of Books
"
The Mendacity of Hope
should help wake up all those Obama-voters who've been napping while the wars escalate, the recession deepens, and the environment goes straight to hell."--Barbara Ehrenreich
"An eloquently sober indictment of the corruption which impels the self-aggrandizement of our executive branch, much to the bane of our Constitution. A frightening book whose conclusions ought to haunt every American."--William T. Vollmann
"An excellent book. . . . US politics has ended up as a battle between the mostly corrupt and the entirely corrupt. . . . It's long past time to put away your Obama t-shirt and take out your protest banner."--Johann Hari, The Independent
"Hodge calls for revitalization of the founding tradition of civil virtue and republican values of liberty, a message that should be taken to heart if we are to reverse the drift towards an ugly future."--Noam Chomsky
"Ready to wake up from the Obama dream yet? If so, this thrillingly scathing and relentlessly truthful cri de coeur is your strong cup of coffee. "--Naomi Klein
"Roger D. Hodge brilliantly and devastatingly dissects how democracy has gone on sale in America."--Bill Moyers
"Roger Hodge has written a desperately needed expose of how Barack Obama is not the messiah of liberalism but its designated gravedigger. . . . This is a blazing indictment of corporate collusion and a bracing injection of hard truths."--Naomi Wolf
