The Great Divide characters ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB A conflict between George Washington and Thomas Jefferson Most Americans are unaware of this historical reality History tends to cast the early years of America in a glow of camaraderie but there were many conflicts between the Founding Fathers and none important than the clash between Washington and Jefferson Their disagreement centered on. Wow And I thought I wasn t an admirer of Thomas JeffersonThomas J Fleming contrasts the views of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as to the powers and responsibilities of the President of the United States the powers Congress and of the judiciary branch of the government and the rights of the states versus the federal government And theoretically this might have been a measured balanced examination of the opposing visions of two key figures in our nation s history on how best to promote freedom contentment and prosperity for the new nation But nope Fleming gives a nod to this idea particularly in his conclusion but for the greater part of the book he is passionately partisan in his presentation Washington was a god and everything he ever did said and thought was noble and wise and prudent while Jefferson was a hypocritical back stabbing ideologue As I mentioned Fleming admires Washington and he blames Jefferson for the way that Washington s political skills diplomatic acuity and prudent leadership have been overlooked in favor of a view which sees him as a military leader whose presidency was bland and nonpartisan In fact he blames Jefferson for a whole Lot of things Did I mention that he hates Jefferson I mean just absolutely loathes him with a burning passion He describes the various things Jefferson does and also the boneheaded actions and ideas of his minions Madison and Monroe with incredible venom I felt kind of guilty enjoying his diatribes as much as I did and I think any reader expecting a fair presentation of the Jeffersonian view of things would be justifiably outraged but as I said I m really not a Jefferson fan Sometimes his invective became so wild that it was actually funny though I think a little restraint might be wise if he expects to be taken seriously as a historian But then I m not a scholar so what do I knowAnyway I found this pretty entertaining I give it 3 stars and am rounding up to 4 because sometimes his rants about Jefferson s dumbassery got so outrageous that I laughed out loud I listened to the audio book version of this and that s surely worth a half star One thing I forgot to mention but I m adding it now is that Fleming has an odd habit of referring to congressmen as Solons As in and then the Solons did this And yes I know who Solon was But still after the first couple times it got a little irritating
