The Best insights into the world view of our current administration,
This review is from: Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals (Paperback)
This book will reveal uncanny similarities in ideology and precise buzz words and phrases such as "Hope and Change" and "Yes We Can" between the author and our current president. Knowing that President Obama was an admirer and student of the original Community Organizer, Saul Alinski, I found this book a must read to arrive at an understanding of their methods and motive. They are clear: Tear down the entire system by any means necessary.
While I regret seeing book royalty money going to nefarious people and causes, I made the sacrifice in exchange of factual information and confirmation.
You doubt? Read it...and weep.

Observant, but incomplete. My comment extends beyond just Obama. Indeed, I used the term, "current administration.: Thanks for your observation, and your comment.

Your conclusion of "tear down the entire system by any means necessary" displays your complete ignorance.
President Obama is NOT radical at all. Just ask Wall Street, since Fortune 500 companies love Barack Obama. Corporations have been more profitable under Obama than they ever were during the Bush Administration.
Yes President Obama is familiar with the community organizing techniques in this book, since he used them as an organizer and during his Presidential campaign.
However, Obama is not RADICAL at all, unless you think the entire Democratic Party and ideology is "radical". Did you think Bill Clinton was a radical? Of course not.
