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 ›
The 200 plus folks who were interviewed by Klein for this book used the same phrases over and over: Haughty, arrogant, aloof, personally disconnected, only interested in listening to his own voice, only interested in hearing from those who agree with him, etc. He doesn't know how to lead, he doesn't know how to manage - he's had no experience running a large company and employees, etc. The sheer volume of consistent observations should give cause for concern.
One thing was very upsetting - his aversion to using the phone to call people - just to chat, for advice, to console, to assure, etc., etc. All the past presidents have called each other - reached out for counsel and advice - or just called to acknowledge that being president is one tough job. Not Obama - he doesn't need anybody's help - so he blunders his way through, very rarely admitting that he botched something.Read more ›
