We know it, because we’ve seen it all before. Hillary, Fergie and Madonna: when they were scorned and taunted for being past their sell-by date, they didn’t sit there and take it, they got writing children’s books. They wrote of villages and little helicopters, of Mr Peabody’s apples and great big worms. Who cared what the subject matter was, the important thing was to produce a book.

Why Obamacare is Good for You by B.H. Obama

Obamacare is good for you because Democrats want to make sure everything is fair. It’s not fair that some have a lot and others have very little so Obamacare will make sure everyone has nothing. Mmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm!

LOL. Ain't that the truth.

I wouldn’t be so sure of that.

That said, he will undoubtedly be awarded the Nobel literature prize for this work!

  If his children's book is being ghost written by a domestic terrorist...well... what's that going to look like?

Ha!! I think he knows he’s a goner in the next election, and he’s just trying like h$#@ to milk his name and position for all it’s worth before he gets booted out.

He’s making hay while the sun shines, as they say.

The book “praises a host of American heroes”. My guess is the following “American heroes” are profiled:

1. Saul Alinsky
2. Jeremiah Wright
3. Bernardine Dohrn
4. William Ayers
5. New Black Panther Thugs
6. Eugene Debs
7. Anthony K. “Van” Jones
8. Richard Cloward
9. Frances Fox Piven
10. Woodrow Wilson
11. Margaret Sanger
12. Wade Rathke (ACORN founder)
13. Frank Marshall Davis

This guy is such a buffoon!!!! What do you want to bet this will become mandatory reading in every school in the US?

It sounds to me like the real puppet master in the US is Lorne Micheals... you just can’t make this sh*t up! Everyday is so absurd now, it’s like a SNL skit!

He probably had THAT ghost written, just like his multiple biographies.

Is the media sure it is a “childrens” book. These days, they may not be able to know the difference.
