In Korean? (The book, not the signature).

The top three questioners to the "Ask President Obama" competition also got actual replies from the president, including a rare reflection on the favorite speeches that he has delivered....

Pocket Obama (Paperback)
by The Editors of History Company (Author)
This is the little blue book that right-wing partisans love to hate. Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, POCKET OBAMA is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama's speeches and writings, intended to keep the momentum going for those inspired by his message of hope and change. The portable book serves as a reminder of the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words, a primer for readers who want to examine the substance of his thought and reflect on the next great chapter in the American story. His captivating oratory has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency and set a true course for the future. Includes themes of democracy, politics, war, terrorism, race, community, jurisprudence, faith, personal responsibility, national identity, and above all, his hoped-for vision of a new America. POCKET OBAMA is essential reading as we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin the work of remaking America.

Obamas Little Blue Book and the Egg of Power
By Michelle Malkin, January 26, 2009
Tons of people have e-mailed about the Little Blue Book of Obama sayings that a firm called the History Company is hawking on its website. Yes, they really are selling them in 10-packs for $49.50 and yes, the resemblance to Maos Little Red Book is striking. Weirdly, Pocket Obama has a plain blank cover and smacks of a gag especially the last line [it was not a gag -etl]:
"Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obamas speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times-The History Company [the book is no longer listed on the History Company's web site -etl].
"From May 1966, student members of the Communist Party were encouraged to carry copies of Mao's Little Red Book of quotations. Acting under Mao's leadership, these "Red Guards" used his quotations in their mission to weed out intellectuals. With themes such as Correcting Mistaken Ideas and All Reactionaries are Paper Tigers, the quotations became the standard by which all revolutionary efforts were judged."
AKA Chairman Mao, AKA 'The Great Helmsman'. (Tse-Tung can also be spelt Zedong. Translated the name means 'To Shine on the East'.)
Kill tally: 14 to 20 million deaths from starvation during the 'Great Leap Forward'. Tens of thousands killed and millions of lives ruined during the 'Cultural Revolution'.

Just change a few words...
Bookstores had to showcase the 30 volumes of his speeches, news kiosks carried digest versions and music stores featured his speeches on record. Artists produced tributes to his greatness, and party stalwarts were expected to leap to their feet at rallies with such chants as ‘’Ceausescu -Rumania, our pride and esteem!’’ Interviews with visiting reporters were choreographed to comic extremes, as if for an operetta.
Another Toby Keith moment for the Ego in Chief.
He’s just so special, ya know.
Obama has more in common with Kim Jong Il than he does with the South Korean people.
