From the Inside Flap

The era of hope and change is dead....and it only took six months in office to kill it.

Never has an administration taken office with more inflated expectations of turning Washington around. Never have a media-anointed American Idol and his entourage fallen so fast and hard. In her latest investigative tour de force, New York Times bestselling author Michelle Malkin delivers a powerful, damning, and comprehensive indictment of the culture of corruption that surrounds Team Obama's brazen tax evaders, Wall Street cronies, petty crooks, slum lords, and business-as-usual influence peddlers. In Culture of Corruption, Malkin reveals:

* Why nepotism beneficiaries First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are Team Obama's biggest liberal hypocrites--bashing the corporate world and influence-peddling industries from which they and their relatives have benefited mightily
* What secrets the ethics-deficient members of Obama's cabinet--including Hillary Clinton--are trying to hide
* Why the Obama White House has more power-hungry, unaccountable "czars" than any other administration
* How Team Obama's first one hundred days of appointments became a litany of embarrassments as would-be appointee after would-be appointee was exposed as a tax cheat or had to withdraw for other reasons
* How Obama's old ACORN and union cronies have squandered millions of taxpayer dollars and dues money to enrich themselves and expand their power
* How Obama's Wall Street money men and corporate lobbyists are ruining the economy and helping their friendsIn Culture of Corruption, Michelle Malkin lays bare the Obama administration's seamy underside that the liberal media would rather keep hidden. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Culture of Corruption, by my good friend and intrepid reporter Michelle Malkin, reveals all the sordid details the Obama Administration would rather you not know—the sleaze, corruption, and self-dealing of the Chicago Machine that lets no ‘crisis’ go to waste. A powerful and necessary indictment of what ‘hope and change’ really means.”
—Mark Levin, author of the New York Times bestsellers Liberty and Tyranny and Men in Black

“Dogged, fiercely independent, and with a brilliant eye for the telling detail, Michelle Malkin has now turned her formidable skills to the bright new dawn of the Obama era, and the ever widening gulf between the hopey changey rhetoric and the murkier reality. Her riveting portrait of unsavory cronies parceling out the spoils of government is somewhat at odds with the impression you may have gained from the besotted Tiger Beat correspondents of the mainstream media. I will leave it to the reader to decide which view is more persuasive, but let’s just say that, if more journalists were like Michelle Malkin, American newspapers might still have a future.”
—Mark Steyn, author of the New York Times bestseller America Alone

Amazon should only allow people to review the book if you have bought it from them, that way we can eliminate all of the drones trying to rate the book as one star despite the fact they haven't read it.

Now...on to the review.
I like Michelle's writing style. I've been a fan of hers since the 2004 election. I knew she was a journalist before she started writing her blog, so she has the experience in researching and gathering facts before writing the story and research she did.

This book does a very good job of pointing out the corruption of this administration that you won't get in the mainstream media (MSM). While they gush, faint and swoon for this President and affectionately compare him to the next Kennedy, Michelle paints a different picture of Chicago style bare knuckles thug type politics.

Michelle O. is no better. She complains about being kept on the periphery of society while attending Princeton and Harvard, a chance most Americans will never have. She served on a law form before going on to be a "health administrator" at the U. of Chicago Medical Center and eventually helping to create one of the worst medical programs in terms of patient care in the country.

Biden is the epitome of a corrupt politician who engages in nepotism at every turn. He has is greasy little hands in everything funneling tons of earmarks to amtrack buddies and his friends in the State of Delaware.

Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago housing projects operated by real estate developers and Obama financial backers Rezko and Allison Davis. (Davis is also Obama's former boss.

I find myself yet again wishing I could grant this review another half of a star, but since I can't, I just have to stick with four.

The great thing about Michelle Malkin is that she's a trained reporter, so she knows how to source well. Throughout the book she provides references which point back to the "hard" evidence to support her claims.

As such, Malkin has a certain level of credibility that other Obama / Democrat bashing authors severely lack.

There are a few places where Malkin makes a few leaps. For example, she seems convinced that a refusal to disclose certain business deals automatically means the deal is shady, but coming from the business world, I know that is not necessarily the case. She may be correct, but I like to base my opinions on solid facts, not conjecture.

For the most part, her analysis is confined to whatever the evidence strictly supports, and I appreciate that.

As a conservative, and someone who started learning about Chicago politics once Obama announced his candidacy, I found very little in this book outright surprising. Nonetheless, it was a still an eye-opener to see it all compiled in one place.

Liberals will probably discount this book simply because they don't want to believe any of it, but if you can approach it with an open mind you are sure to come away with information that will probably surprise you.

It should be worth noting that a person reading this book should not automatically think that the other side of the political spectrum is much better. Republicans are, in many cases, just as corrupt as the Democrats Malkin outlines in this book. Malkin has nailed some of those Republicans over the years and I respect her for that.

Before I proceed with my review, it is clear from the polar opposite 1-star reviews that there are many libs commenting on the book, so let me go ahead and mention the "drone" talking points so they won't get distracted - "Bush lied, people died", "Cheney/Halliburton", "Scooter Libby", "Karl Rove caused Katrina", "Blackwater", "9/11 was in inside job", blah, blah, blah.

Having said all of that, Michelle Malkin did an excellent job of laying out a coherent, well-researched, and systematic roadmap of corruption, self-serving favors, and criminal activity -- all linked to our President and his network of thug insiders. She clearly lays out the proven links between the players and the overwhelming evidence of the role of money and corruption on how things get done in Washington. I had heard of many of these players through other research and reading, but Ms Malkin brought to light NUMEROUS relationships between these players I was not aware of, and which cause an even greater disgust for business as usual. President Obama has somehow convinced all the drones that he's above "Politics as Usual", but the sheer weight of the evidence clearly shows he's neck deep in the "cesspool", but his lips are still moving.

After reading all of the negative reviews on the book, one would hope the detractors could at least debunk the book with facts and evidence, but of course if the allegations are true then that's not possible..........so, on to Plan B! Attack the author as a right-wing hack, and paint all the readers as ignorant right-wing talk radio heads who can't think for themselves.

I am a well-educated senior executive in business, and I observe every day that "relationships matter", and who a person associates with tells a lot about that person.
