I pre-ordered one and Amazon pushed the date to Sept. 6th. Hopefully labor day shipment issues and not publisher problems.

I hope that ass Holder doesn’t sue Arizona over this book. He is burying us in his bull**** “lawsuits”.

All the money aside....I'm almost hoping that he posts it on the web....I'll be glad to send him money.

You know that come September 11th, Obama is just going to take over the airways to remind us that he got the man who hit america on 9-11.

Maybe it's my location here in the heartland (where Baraq appears of have lost about 15 points in the polls since 2008) but the whole "GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead" ploy doesn't seem to be working very well.

#1 in "Books" on Amazon.

Poor Barry can't get a break. LOL!

I ordered it the day it hit Amazon. It went to #2 on its first day.

It would also be nice to have a first person book by Panetta or whoever describing how they had to overrule Jarrett, drag zero off the golf course kicking and screaming, to sit in the situation room at least for the photo op.

Hopefully enough of this has leaked out anyway that most everyone realizes it was anything but zero’s gutsy call.

I also pre-ordered the day it was put up on Amazon.

I have 3 emails moving the date up.

The 1st (sent 24 Aug) moved it from 16 Oct to 13 Sept.
The 2nd (sent 25 Aug) moved it from 13 Sept to 11 Sept.
The 3rd (sent 29 Aug) moved it from 11 Sept to 6 Sept.

LOL At this rate, I should get notified tomorrow that it’ll arrive .... tomorrow.
