Bruce Herschensohn knocks it out of the ballpark with this book, and lands on my list of must-reads heading up to the election. He outlines all of Obama's foreign policy failures, and I can virtually guarantee you haven't heard even half of them through the media. The book is obviously well-researched, and Herschensohn has the experience to add intellectual heft to the methodical case he lays out that Obama is perhaps the greatest foreign policy failure in the history of the United States.

For that reason, I have put this book on my growing list of must-reads for the 2012 election. So far, that list includes:

2012 Election: The 106 BEST Reasons NOT to Vote for Obama -- An awesome quick read that outlines the many failures of the president. A must-have to be armed in any debate with an Obama supporter; it's all facts and no fluff, complete with linked sources. One of my best Kindle buys ever.

Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream -- Dinesh creates another masterpiece that outlines Obama's early life and the almost innumerable Marxist radicals that shaped our President's political foundation. Mind blowing and heavy hitting, it leaves no doubt that we simply MUST replace Obama in November.

This is the most concise and informative book on how Obama has changed the way the world views the U.S. Not only are we perceived as weak and ineffective by our enemies, but our allies are not secure in knowing that we will stand behind them. Mr. Herschensohn obviously understands how the world works. Everyone should read this book before you vote. Outstanding!

The Editorial Reviews posted above are accurate! Unfortunately, after Obama's re-election, this book is more timely than ever. Are the disastrous foreign policies of this Administration the result of inexperience and incompetence? Or is the Obama Administration deliberately betraying our allies while funding and empowering our enemies? Read the book and then decide.

Format: Hardcover
It took me a week end to finish this brilliant presentation of our current world diplomatic, economic and military objectives. It's not that I couldn't read it in one sitting, because it is very accessible; it's that it's too painful to read in one sitting. I've watched the news and have followed current events, so I am aware of many of the affiliations President Obama has cultivated. Much of it made little sense to me. Herschensohn's book provides the missing links to understanding Obama's often down right insulting behaviors to our allies. Allies like Great Britain (with whom, for example, Obama maintains we have "no special relationship") or Israel's land which Obama steadfastly refers to as holding the "occupied territories". Herschensohn's answers are alarming but essential information. As he skillfully unfolds Obama's foreign policy, in total, the situation changes from alarming to dire. Herschensohn connects the dots in a way that is obvious to anyone who would take the time to read this powerful book, which reads like a breeze. Herschensohn does NOT draw the conclusion, but because he doesn't and the reader has to get there himself, the book becomes an even more vital instrument as a teaching tool.

I believe it is important that every American read this book; particularly our high school and college students. Many people do not have the time to get all the information they have a completely informed vote. This book will be quick primer and for this reason I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Draw your own conclusions and search your soul for the honest answer. The book is worth every penny, and you will not be disappointed!

I remember Bruce Herschensohn from his days as a political commentator at KABC-TV and KABC-Radio, so I was delighted to discover his new book " Obama's Globe". I was familiar with Mr. Herschenson from his political commentaries which always displayed great knowledge, critical thinking, and wisdom. Mr. Herschensohn has authored an outstanding book on how President Obama has abandoned our allies while at the same time seeming to attempt to appease our adversaries. This is a "must read" book Before the election as has been said before. The more people who read this book the more understanding and support there will be to return to a foreign policy of "Peace through Strength" instead of apologetic appeasement. This book is a clarion call for a change in the White House if there ever was one!

Thank you Bruce for writing this book! We need your brilliant mind and eloquent voice of reason and I hope you will be heard in a new administration...Remember Pearl Harbor! Remember 9-11! Remember Benghazi!!!

once again bruce Herschensohn has written a book showing what has happen to our country. Every thing that he says about president Obama is correct . I hope and prey that people in our country wake up to the evil man that is running our country. And i feel sorry that the people of calif.did not send Mr. Herschensohn to Washington.
