From the Inside Flap
No, because America as we know itwealthy, powerful, assertiveis not what Obama wants. He wants a smaller America, a poorer America, and America unable to exert its will, and America happy to be one that other nations might riseall in the name of global fairness. To Obama, the hated "one percent" isn't just wealthy Americans; it is America itself. In Obama's view, America needs to be taken down a notch.
That is the startling conclusion of bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza. Building on his previous bestseller on Barack Obama, The Roots of Obama's Ragewhich Newt Gingrich called, "Stunning the most profound insight I have read in the last six years"D'Souza shows how Obama's goal to downsize America is in plain sight but ignored by everyone.
D'Souza lays out what Obama plans to do in a second administrationa makeover of America so drastic that the "shining city on a hill" will become a shantytown in a rather dangerous global village.
In Obama's America you'll learn:
- How Obama plans to use debt as a weapon of economic mass destruction to downsize the United States
- How a second Obama term could be fatal to Isrealand to American interests in the Middle East
- A superpower disarmed: why drastic defense cuts are only the beginning
- How Obama plans to make us more dependent on foreign energy suppliers
- What the world will be like when America is a debt-ridden, second-tier economy and other countries, like China, India, and even Brazil, are wealthier and dominant
Arresting in its presentation and sobering in its conclusions, Obama's America is essential reading for those who want to change America's course before it's too late.
From the Back Cover
Obama is not merely the presiding instrument of American decline, he is the architect of American decline. He wants America to be downsized. He wants Americans to consume less, and he would like to see our standard of living decline relative to that of other nations. He seeks a diminished footprint for America in the world. He detests America's traditional allies, like Britain and Israel, and seeks to weaken them; he is not very worried about radical Muslims acquiring a nuclear bomb or coming to power in countries like Tunisia and Egypt. He is quite willing to saddle future dollars toward this end and if he had been permitted, he would have spent trillions more. He has shown no inclination, and has no desire, to protect America's position as number one in the world; he would be content to see America as number 18, or number 67, just another country seated at the great dining table of nations. The strength of my thesis is that it is completely congruent with who Obama is and what he does. We don't have to assume that he is always getting results opposite to what he intends; we simply have to see that he intends the results he is getting. He emphasized in his inauguration speech his goal of "remaking America"and he is doing it, recognizing that in order to remake America he must first unmake America. The only question is whether Americans approve of their country being diminished and downsized, and whether they want to give Obama another four years to finish the job.
Top Customer Reviews
As usual the 1 star reviews obviously did not read the book. D'Souza's completely debunks the "birther" claim and the idea that Obama is a closet Muslim. He does not claim that Obama is Jihadi or hates America. One of the 1 star reviewers seems to merely to have an Amazon account to trash any book critical of President Obama.
Any strong supporter of Israel that is an undecided voter should definitely read the book.
If you are wondering WHY America is where it's at right now, look no further than this book!
We as a former Global Superpower have been weakened by 4 years of Obama.
I voted for him, I loved his campaign of change, but this is NOT the change the US needed.
To be honest, after recently overviewing the global landscape and the inescapeable upcoming battle between Iran & Israel, I'm afraid the US will never be the same again.
Read this book to understand WHY.
D'Souza, Dinesh Obama's America
Dinesh D'Souza shows himself to be a good writer and he does believe in what he
is writing. He tends to stick to unemotional phrasing and logical arguments. The
book has a good amount of sources and notes and it seems well researched.
His writings include the contention that that Obama has anti-colonial ideology,
that Obama's background is still a mystery to many people, That he had radical
mentors as he was growing up, etc. in other words many of the same things that
other authors have written of.
So the real question becomes does this book have anything that makes it rise
above the other books of this type? Ordinary Americans cannot buy every book
that is published and with each new book people have to make economic decisions
of which books to buy if they can afford any at all.
My answer is that this book is not a `must' read for everyone but it is still
a book the undecided voter should read.
What is really curious is how the media over all this time and in the current election cycle have ignored all this information. I hear people say the media as biased and liberal, and with this glaring example of poor media investigation I might have to finally agree that the US media is biased and no longer can be used for consumption by the citizens of the US.
Great book and will share with friends who are Independent, Democrat and Republican!
Meanwhile, people from all side of the political spectrum should take heed: there will be competent, patriotic liberal presidents in the future. Barack Obama is simply not one of them.
