RWN’s Favorite Quotes From Joe Scarborough’s ‘Rome Wasn’t Burnt In A Day’
Joe Scarborough’s “Rome Wasn’t Burnt In A Day” is a fantastic book for political junkies.
Joe Scarborough, who most people know through his show on MSNBC, “Scarborough Country,” originally made a name for himself as a freshmen congressman back in 1994. Because of a huge backlash against Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, the GOP was able to take the House from the Democrats back then and they still hold it to this day.
In the book, Scarborough gives you the inside scoop about what happened during the “Republican Revolution” and he tells you what Washington is really like behind the scenes. Scarborough, who is a “fiscal conservative’s fiscal conservative”, pulls no punches in the book as he nails the GOP, Democrats, and the Washington bureaucracy for wasting our money.
Without hesitation, I’d strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know how Washington really works because it’s a great and informative read. In any case, whether you read the book or not, you can certainly read the best quotes from the book which I’ve compiled here.
