About the Author

Fred J. Eckert, former US Ambassador and former conservative Republican Member of Congress, is the author of the political satire novel, Hank Harrison for President, that Library Journal hailed as “one of the best political spoofs since The Mouse That Roared.” His writings have appeared in such national magazines as Reader’s Digest, The Wall Street Journal and Outdoor Life; in a number of conservative on-line publications, including Human Events, American Thinker, Pajamas Media, National Review Online and The Washington Examiner; and in nearly every major newspaper in the United States. President Ronald Reagan called him “a good friend and valued advisor…a man of great experience and wisdom.”

Format: Paperback
Ambassador Eckert demonstrates once again why he is one of our nation's keenest political observers. Cheerfully treading where mere mortal reporters and editors dare not, Eckert catalogues an amazing array of malapropisms,falsities and other gibberish uttered by candidate and now President Obama.
Social Studies teachers across the nation cringed when Mr. Obama referred to the "58 states" in our union, but no one at CBS, the New York Times, or MSNBC thought this worth mentioning. When the President referred to the "Austrian language," the professional newsies at NBC, ABC, and the Washington Post were strangely silent.

Fred Eckert has these and many other bizarre or laughable comments from our President all available in "That's a Crock, Barack."

The book makes an excellent gift, perhaps even for your favorite local or even national journalist.

Thank you, Ambassador Eckert !

Format: Paperback
Our current President has been given a pass by the main stream press from misstatements and other malapropos that make the miscues of President George W. Bush pale in comparison. Ambassador Eckert has taken on the task of calling the President to task for some of his most outrageous statements and mis-statements. In a well research and edited effort Eckert has provided a glimpse of the man behind the myth by outlining the truth about some of the least heard comments of the President and those that, more shockingly, the mainstream media has given him a pass for saying.
Anyone seriously considering which candidate to support in this year's Presidential election now has a must read that will lead to the inevitable conclusion that it is time for a change--again.
The book is well researched, humorous despite the seriousness of its message and provides a strong analysis of the facts behind some of the President's most outrageous statements.
The book shows the same sense of satire that made Hank Harrison for President the wonderful read that it is but this effort is even more vital. It points to the truth that is being hidden rather than the odd world inhabited by Hank Harrison.
The book should be read by all serious Americans

Thank you FRED ECKERT!

What a gift. Many of us know intuitively that Barack Obama fails America everyday, but it is difficult at times to pin him down, especially since the mainstream media is such a fan of the man and such an enemy of the truth. "That's a crock, Barack" is the definitive reference we need to really understand just how duplicitous Barack Obama has been and helps prepare us for the onslaught of politically-motivated, self-serving falsehoods and fabrications that are to come. Well documented and verifiable, this is not an opinion piece, but a real-life, factual account of the absurd statements of Barack Obama. Written in crisp and humorous style, this is a fun and worthwhile read.

Format: Paperback
The recent brouhaha over the Administration's decision to require church-affiliated institutions to provide birth-control services to their employees followed a few days later by a self-described "compromise" intended to deal with that decision's political fallout would be meat and potatoes for Fred Eckert, who in "That's a crock, Barack" has laid bare the President's remarkable history of self-absorption and a very casual approach to truth.

As an example, Eckert dissects Obama's effort to explain how his vote as a Senator against President Bush's request to raise the debt ceiling was different from Republican opposition to his own request four years later to do the same thing. Eckert quotes Obama's admission that his initial vote was "political" and not in the interest of the Nation, and then goes on to point out that despite the President's claim to have learned from that experience he chose not to vote at all on the next two debt ceiling proposals that came before the Senate. It would seem that voting "present" is a hard habit to break.

Eckert's book can be read on several levels; it is a fun, rollicking compendium of Obama's malapropisms and fabrications that will have you laughing when you are not crying. It is also a serious, thoughtful examination of the President's character that raises legitimate questions about what an Obama Administration might do in a second term, once it is free from the need to win re-election.

This is a "must read" for anyone interested in presidential politics or simply frustrated by the media's unwillingness to cast a critical eye on the President's policies. Even better, it will make you a very well-informed voter come the Second Tuesday next November.
