I downloaded the book to my Kindle within hours of its release, and read it over a day and a half period, only pausing to sleep. Probably the two most enjoyable-to-read revelations are that 1. Bill Clinton urged Hillary to challenge Obama in 2012. 2. The Kennedy clan despise Obama, despite deceased Ted Kennedy's tireless support of the Community Organizer-in-Chief.Read more ›
After one of the world's richest and most popular women, Oprah Winfrey decided to help out a relatively unknown candidate for President named Barack Obama, she was credited with providing him with more than a million votes. The popularity of her own national television program suffered greatly from this political position, but her candidate and friend Barack won.
But once the Obama's were in the White House several jealous staff members of Michelle Obama quickly grew to detest the influence they felt Oprah was exercising on the President. Soon, Oprah was frozen out of the White House by a jealous wife.
This tale of political intrigue and fighting within the Obama White House is only one of the fascinating stories reported in this excellent peek into the Obama administration provided by author Edward Klein.Read more ›
1. Highlighting of Obama's extremism, and his various coteries of like-minded extremists;
2. Attempts to lay bare the interior Obama, and understand his motivations;
3. Logically flawed, and emotionally driven.
Remarkably, Edward Klein has combined the above first two items along with the words and opinions of many principal, and lesser, actors from the world of Obama.
Surprisingly, in relatively few pages (258 of them, and widely spaced), and in the fourth year of Obama's reign, Klein clearly demonstrates the failure of Obama as President--and his inability to learn from his failures; Obama's incompetence and intellectual one-dimensionality are simply stunning.
Interestingly revelatory, are the words of the people Klein interviewed: Democrats, Republicans, friends, past and present supporters of Obama. The racist opportunist and talented hater, Jeremiah Wright, actually comes across as highly intelligent and sympathetic when discussing the younger Obama, and the volatile period during and after the 2008 campaign.
Superficially, Klein's detractors might see this book as a scholar's compendium of modern political gossip. In fact, Klein is analytical and highly perceptive in examining Obama's record. The words of those interviewed expose the reader to insights about Obama that are certain to enlighten--and occasionally entertain.
