Whereas Noonan had her What I Saw at the Revolution Latimer has his what in the world am I doing here Latimer served as a speechwriter in House and Senate offices before moving to the Department of Defense as Donald Rumsfeld s speechwriter and finally to his dream job presidential speechwriter during the final years of President Bush s 2nd term His account is funny engaging and sometimes saddening Latimer clearly respects Rumsfeld a lot but found himself disillusioned by a White House that lacked principles and coherence The one strange thing about this tale is that Latimer sometimes presents people he didn t respect as too liberal and presents other such people as too conservative We are left to wonder what Latimer s principles are though smaller government certainly seems to be one of them The whole book moves fast but the fastest moving part is near the end when Latimer is discussing how the October 2008 economic bailout came to be how few understood it and how the White House worked to try to explain what it didn t understand We are left ultimately with an unflattering picture of our federal government Many insider books are flattering to the point of embarrassment and lacking in substance to the point of worthlessness This is not one of those books Latimer is blunt and honest
