Well worth the read!!
An Amazon review follows:
This book was not only a fun read but it also might be of historical importance. First, it was a fun read because the author wrote it like a detective novel and added lots of ironic humor. Its potential historical importance, however, is that it could well be the beginning of the unveiling of the real Obama. Obama is not the Manchurian Candidate or the Radical-Chief. He is not even a liberal in conscience — our President is nothing more than a complete counterfeit who has made a career out of the self-loathing of white liberals and the mortal fear of everyone else of being labeled a bigot for vetting a black man.
During the 2008 campaign, I watched a video of Obama talking about the constitution being a barrier to wealth redistribution. As a law school graduate, I was not alarmed by the candidate’s will to subvert the constitution (all liberals want to do this), but rather, I was alarmed by his complete lack of sophistication with constitutional law. Obama’s command of constitutional law was that of a freshman political science student — not that of a graduate from an accredited law school. His command of the law was what could be expected of someone who played the diversity card to the fullest and found it as an alternative to doing real scholarship. Any real liberal law student will tell you that the constitution is a “living document” that says whatever you want to say.
During a primary debate he complained about an employer paying less taxes than his secretary. This reflected his failure to understand profit and loss and the fact that an employer only pays taxes on the company’s profits. In the best of times, many good companies experience profits that are little or nothing. When this happens, they pay less taxes than their secretaries because they have less income than those secretaries.
Throughout the campaign, Obama appeared intelligent as long as he was following a teleprompter or a speech writer. A Capella, Obama always demonstrated that there really was nothing on the inside of the Armani. I do not believe that Obama is a writer, a lawyer, a Keynesian economist, or even a loving husband and father. He is just a pretend Wizard of Oz and this book is doing the job of Toto, opening the veil to show that it is all just a console of wheels and levers.
“producing absolutely nothing for the publisher that in November 1990 had given the new graduate of Harvard Law School a $125,000 advance”
Wow. I had no idea his scamming went back that far.
He’s the Potempkin Man...
The link does not work.
I betcha if the full truth is ever known about this guy, it’ll make Rev. Wright and Bill Ayres look like pretty nice guys by comparison.
“to write a book about race relations in America . “
Hmm, Clintoon talked about writing such a book himself, and often claimed to be working on it. 1990’s too. Hmm, just hmm.
Now I am no loyah, and I did not stay in a Holiday Inn last night, but if being given a $125,000 advance to write a book and never producing said book, is that not grand theft?
Did O ever pay back the advance to S&S...and if not, why not?
Yes, reading it right now. The side-by-side comparisons are pretty hard to refute.
Joe Scarborough column at Politico :
Bill Ayers wrote Dreams From My Father, Trump told me.
I have no doubt about it.
That first book was total genius and helped get him elected.
But you can tell Obama did the second book himself
because it read like it was written by somebody of average intelligence with a high school education.
The New York Times did a puff piece on Barry’s literary skills in May 2008.
Barry was having such a tough time “ writing “ his book ,
that he decamped to Indonesia
( the world’s largest Muslim country , I’m sure it was just a coincidence.....) for “ several months .”
” His half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, said he eventually retreated to Bali for several months with his wife, Michelle,
to find a peaceful sanctuary where there were no phones.
Maybe Trump might be able to send investigators to Indonesia to discover where Barry and Michelle lived
and how long they stayed there.
No one else seems interested in Barry and Michelle’s strange and never explained Indonesian odyssey.
Interesting tidbit from the article regarding The Audacity of Hope.
He wrote very polished first drafts, said Cass R. Sunstein,
a University of Chicago law professor who read drafts of chapters on the Constitution and economic policy.
........ I gave him some potential formulations for what he might write.
He always put it in his own words.
Not once did he use my words.
So Sunstein helped write Audacity ??
Obama is a vessel. His main protection or “gun” is people’s fear of being called racist if they criticize him.
The country is really being run by an ultra leftist cabal of bureaucrats and handlers guiding the agenda behind the scenes. He acts as the sandbagger for this.
He is high priced window dressing, a figurehead.
