The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House

I rarely read a book that is solely on politics, but this past Sunday a lady at church said she had read this well researched book. Thus, Monday I went to Barnes and Noble, and they had it on sale. I read it yesterday. It is a very easy book to read while still being very informative.

The author Edward Klein interviewed 200 people and read many books to give us this inside picture of the real Barack Obama. It is very revealing. Klein is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, the former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine, former foreign editor of Newsweek, and he has written many other books.

Two endorsements are Donald J. Trump, who says the book is “the best I’ve read on how Barack Obama is wrecking our country.” Then Dinesh D’Souza, the Christian apologist and president of The King’s College and bestselling author, states, “This is a racy, entertaining, informative book that illuminates aspects of Obama and his team that have not been previously reported.”

The book is timely, coming out just before the election in November, and yet with enough time for it to make an impact.

He paints a picture of Obama as having a Messianic complex, very thin skinned, and his wife Michelle as being domineering with an explosive temper.  He says that Obama’s campaign this time around will be to attack his opponent unmercifully, with lies and innuendos, trying to create fear in voters regarding Romney and the Republican party, anything to take the focus off his failed record. Moreover, I would add that Obama will campaign with generic statements, for he has much to hide, and with generic statements he can fill in the blanks–or not–later to say, “See, I said I would do this.” David Axelrod is the mastermind behind this, much like he created the first campaign of “change”.

Here is Klein’s summary at the end:

“To win reelection in 2012, Barack Obama must divert the country’s attention from his record of incompetence and amateurish. He doesn’t want to remind people that America lost its triple-A rating credit rating on his watch–a downgrade that Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina called a firing offense.

“Republicans will have to remind them.

“Obama doesn’t want to remind people that he increased the national debt by nearly $5 trillion–the most rapid increase in debt under any president.

“Republicans will have to remind them.

“Obama doesn’t want to remind people that he pushed through a bill that includes more than a trillion dollars in new healthcare spending and contains a 4.5 percent tax increase.

“Republicans will have to remind them.

(skipping part of the summary)

“Obama doesn’t want to remind people that he was for lower taxes before he was for higher taxes; that he was for forcing Catholic-affliated institutions to provide contraceptive and abortion insurance before he was against forcing them to go against their religious principles; that he was for removing terrorists from Guantanamo before he was against it; that he was for bringing the country together before he was for dividing it; that he was for a grand bargain with the Republicans over the debt ceiling before he was against it; that he was for energy independence before he rejected the Keystore Pipeline; that he was in favor of extending an olive branch to the mullahs in Iran before he was against it. . . .[I add, before he took out Osama ben Ladin.]

“Republicans will have to remind America that Barack Obama is The Amateur.”

Every point of this summary is documented in the book.  Get this one and read it soon as the election is coming up.
