"THE BRIEF AGAINST OBAMA makes the case for sending Obama back to Chicago, and does so with lawyerly precision and broadcaster passion. Read it. Learn it. Pass it on. And work, every day, to stop the president's assault on our Constitution."
---Mark Levin, bestselling author of Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America
"Hugh Hewitt has done what the mainstream media has left undone. The media has dwelled on Barack Obama's style, his rhetoric, and his claims. Hewitt has concentrated on the facts---and only the facts---of Obama's presidency, set them against his promises, and judged Obama to have failed spectacularly. Obama is the Peter Principle President, in above his head."
---Fred Barnes, executive editor, The Weekly Standard, and Fox News commentator

Hugh, a nationally-syndicated radio man, draws on the scores of experts who have expounded the important issues of the day on the Hugh Hewitt Radio Show, to outline the major reasons why Obama should not serve a second term.
The Brief Against Obama reads like his show plays--a blend of information, entertainment, and insight that satisfies intellectuals and political amateurs alike. He has mastered the art of cross promotion, citing on-air interviews and columns he has written over the past two years to support his main points. He is also candid and conversation in his writing style.
Hugh's thesis--his legal argument, as he puts it--is that Barack Obama has been "the most spectacularly failed president of modern times."
Ultimately, Obama's failures are ascribed to his inexperience, summed up by the utter foolishness of the Hope and Change campaign of 2008.
"Why should we have expected anything different?" Hugh writes on p. 170. "The president had been in the United States Senate for only four years when he won the White House: four years of missed hearings and votes, full-time campaigning, and book writing, little if anything in the form of serious study...."
Obama was hopelessly unprepared for the office, in Hugh's estimation. In terms of domestic politics, he never evidenced any skill or even predilection toward negotiation. He feigned moderation and a penchant for compromise, but has delivered hyperpartisanship on an unimaginable scale.
Hugh describes two events that dismantled the non-partisan façade that Obama had managed to erect: the president's 2010 State of the Union speech, in which he belittled the Supreme Court over the Citizen's United decision, and his petty "ambush" on Rep. Paul Ryan at an economic address.
Both episodes are put into historical perspective--Hugh makes no apology for partisanship...
