A book that documents the facts the Barack Obama (BO) Presidency was the most corrupt and had a phony “scandal-free” presidency. If you as I were disappointed with the Obama Administration, here are the scandals, all 29 of them, laid out for all to view in short vignettes. Even the famous Solyndra fiasco owned by Obama financial backers which loss ½ billion of taxpayer money as it went belly up! One tenth of TARP funds went to Alternative Energy Initiatives which prove to be a political boondoggle.
My fellow Democrats have been shocked that this administration made BO the most scandalous even surpassing Jimmy Carter, who, if he had another term may have been just as effective. Here the reader will be re-introduced to the scandal and corruption combined with the weaponization of most of the agencies of the Federal government under this period of time. Violations of policy & laws, lies, stonewalling, deceptive tactics, and rampant fraud are and were all tools of the Obama “Most Transparent Administration.” The eight years provided a disturbing story made so much worse by the complicity of the press!
The Bergdahl Swap in the middle of the book requires more information but Matt Margolis gets his points across. The reader can feel his frustration as OB manipulated this case to evacuate GITMO of enemy combatants. After spending one half my life in DOD I find the OB Administration offensive in its preferred ignorance of the the UCMJ.
This book is a very easy read and well communicated. Even though the reader can feel the bias of the author he brings to the table an impressive 25% of the text as notes and references. It is very painful to revisit this period in US history and view all the things that might have been accomplished.
I haven't finished the book yet, but it is extremely well researched and reveals a lot of details I wasn't aware of. A word of warning, this is not an easy read. For anyone with a conscience, the depth of corruption and lawlessness of the obama administration is incredibly disturbing. The chapter on the Fast and Furious scandal tore me to pieces. I definitely recommend this book, but be prepared to be angry.
This book is well written and easy to read but the corruption is massive! It really is sad that Obama allowed this amount of lawlessness to enter nearly every department of our government. It's well documented and names the sources unlike current "leaks" we hear about. I was surprised by how little interest the press gave these scandals, leaving no doubt about their political leanings.
Fast passed and to the point. The catalog of misdeeds, deception, and down right criminal behavior by his administration and Obama himself is amazing. At a minimum he should be disgraced. We don't jail our past presidents, but we have a prime candidate for a new paradigm. So many scandals to cover, it moves fast with only minimal editorial comment. A chilling read for Obama sceptics, a must read for Obama "lovers" - you got or wanted to be tricked.
I am glad I read this book. It touches upon nearly 30 different events that occurred over the course of the Obama presidency and provides enough details - with references - to demonstrate that Obama's tenure in the White House was plagued with scandal. There is no doubt that a similar review of the GW Bush and the Clinton presidencies would provide similar results - but neither of those two claimed their tenure was "scandal-free". I guess it depends on what the term "scandal" means.
Each chapter covers a topic of Obama scandal or dramatic event. Citations show mostly secondary sources as starting points for independent review of each topic. I expect a President to be aware of issues ahead of the general public. I expect a President to comment honestly and respectfully with what s/he knows and what needs to be investigated. Author Margolis shows that the Obama administration fell short on informed transparency. I believe the book's information speaks for itself. The author's editorial exclamations resemble those of Dick Morris.
Matt Margolis tell all the wrong doing of the Obama 8 years and all the lies, cover ups, scandals, enemies lists, etc. that took place under the most corrupt president that the USA has ever had. The media is complicit in the cover ups.
I was already familiar with most of Barack Obama’s scandals, but this book filled in lots of details for me. I highly recommend reading it to find out what is going on in our government behind our back.s
