After a successful career as a lawyer, Scarborough represented Florida’s 1st Congressional District for four terms before retiring from his seat despite his popularity with his constituents.

    Former Congressman Joe Scarborough (R-Fla.) is the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, a show Time magazine calls “revolutionary.” Along with co-host Mika Brzezinski, Morning Joe features interviews with top newsmakers and in-depth analysis of the day’s biggest stories. The New York Times has ranked Morning Joe as one of today’s top morning news shows, and has praised Joe and Mika’s natural repartee and off-the-cuff commentary. The New Yorker has described the show as “appallingly entertaining.” Scarborough also serves as Senior Political Analyst for NBC News and is a regular contributor to Meet the Press.

    In this role, he is a member of NBC News’ election coverage team and offers political analysis on other NBC News programs, including the TODAY show.

    Scarborough was named to the prestigious Time 100 list of the world’s most influential people, and Vanity Fair named both Joe and Mika in their 2012 list of Top Media Power Players.

    In addition to his career in television, Scarborough is a two-time New York Times best-selling author. His first work, Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day, predicted the collapse of the Republican majority and U.S. economy due to his party’s reckless spending.

    Joe’s second book, The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America’s Promise, draws on the forgotten genius of conservatism to offer a road map for the movement and the country. The Right Path: From Ike to Reagan, How Republicans Once Mastered Politics—and Can Again, Joe’s third book, looks back in time to discern how Republicans once dominated American public life. From Eisenhower’s refusal to let “the perfect be the enemy of the good” to Reagan’s charismatic but resolutely practical genius, Scarborough shows how principled pragmatism, combined with a commitment to core conservative values, led to victory after victory.

The Right Path: From Ike to Reagan, How Republicans Once Mastered Politics—and Can Again
Joe Scarborough—former Republican congressman and the always insightful host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe—takes a nuanced and surprising look at the unexpected rise and self-inflicted fall of the Republican Party. Dominant in national politics for forty years under the influence of the conservative but pragmatic leadership of Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, the GOP, Scarborough argues, is in a self-inflicted eclipse. The only way forward? Recover the principled realism of the giants who led the party to greatness.

In the aftermath of Lyndon Johnson’s 1964 landslide, the Republican Party appeared to be on the verge of permanent irrelevance. LBJ’s Great Society was institutionalizing sweeping liberal reforms, and the United States had a thriving, prosperous economy. Yet in an instant everything changed, and the next four decades would witness an unprecedented era of Republican ascendancy. What happened?

In The Right Path, Joe Scarborough looks back in time to discern how Republicans once dominated American public life. From Eisenhower’s refusal to let “the perfect be the enemy of the good” to Reagan’s charismatic but resolutely practical genius, Scarborough shows how principled pragmatism, combined with a commitment to core conservative values, led to victory after victory.

Now, however, political incalcitrance is threatening to turn a once-mighty party into a permanent minority.

Opening with the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965—the high-water moment for liberalism—and ending with the national disillusionment that set in after Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, The Right Path effortlessly blends American political history with astute analysis and pithy, no-holds-barred commentary. Both a bracing call to arms and a commonsense history, ˆ provides an illuminating look at conservatism and its discontents—and why the GOP must regain its former tone and tradition if it hopes to survive.

The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America’s Promise
In this groundbreaking book, Joe Scarborough tells Republican Party bosses what they don’t want to hear, explains why Democrats are making matters so much worse, and then shows leaders of both parties the way forward.

The Last Best Hope draws on the forgotten genius of conservatism to offer a road map for the movement and the country. Delivering a searing indictment of the political leaders who have led us astray, Scarborough inspires conservatives to reclaim their heritage by drawing upon the strength of the movement’s rich history.

With independent thinking and straight talk, Scarborough explains:

    • How Washington and Wall Street conspired to create the housing bubble that caused America’s financial meltdown
    • How the “candidate of change” has not only maintained but accelerated the reckless spending policies that led us to this historic economic collapse
    • How Washington’s bailout culture will cripple America’s future if left unchecked
    • How Barack Obama’s stimulus plan devolved into a socialist spending spree that would make FDR and LBJ shudder
    • And how conservatives need to take a closer look at Ronald Reagan’s political career before claiming his great legacy

A fearlessly argued conservative manifesto that brings American conservatism into the twenty-first century, The Last Best Hope is a must-read for all who care about the direction America is heading.
