MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is set to publish a book this fall titled From Ike to Reagan, How Republicans Once Mastered Politics–and Can Again. Politico first broke the news Friday morning.
Amazon’s description says the book is “a nuanced and surprising look at the unexpected rise and self-inflicted fall of the Republican Party.”
Politico’s Mike Allen has an excerpt:
“The only way to stop liberals from continuing their winning streak in the White House is by pulling in moderates, independents, and swing voters who have been driven into the Democrats’ camp because of Washington Republicans’ narrowing vision. We can win again and we will. And we can do it by following the right paths of Ronald Reagan and Dwight Eisenhower. We can do it by fighting for the core principles of conservatism and emphasizing those values that most Americans agree with. There will also be times when we will follow the lead of Reagan and Eisenhower by putting principled pragmatism before ideological battles that will undermine our ability to win elections, elect majorities, and take back control of the White House. But time is wasting. Hillary Clinton’s supporters are already preparing for political battle. Next time, we’d better be prepared to win. There is no substitute for victory, and I for one am damn tired of my party losing presidential elections.”
The book publishes Nov. 12.
