    Om Will Rogers Views the News

    One of the most famous and funniest observers of people and events was Will Rogers, a country boy known for his keen and witty views of the ridiculous, bumbling antics of national leaders. Although Will Rogers died in 1935, his penetrating comments are just as fresh and to the point as they were nearly one hundred years ago. In Will Rogers Views the News, seasoned newsman Robert Waldrop applies Will Rogerss brand of shrewd insight and quick wit to todays unpredictable and oft en humorous news events.Will Rogers loved political figures, especially United States presidents. He teased the candidates during their campaigns and lampooned those who succeeded in being elected. While considering Rogerss past comments about the economy, the president, and Congress in light of the current political climate in America, Waldrop reinforces that if not for the doubletalk, answer dodging, and lack of focus of our elected leaders, humorists would have nothing to talk about. From Democrats and Republicans to Wall Street and lobbyists to war and the military, Waldrop channels Rogerss humor and applies it to modern day through his Telegrams, newspaper articles, and books. Will Rogers Views the News shares a past humorists timeless way of looking at people and events that still encourages others to learn to laugh at themselves, our leaders, and the unpredictable world we live in.
