“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.
I’ve always considered that a person with multiple SSNs had to be a con artist. Fits Obama very well.
All I have to say about this critique is “WOW!”
Didn’t Hillary get a several million dollar advance for a book that sold two copies.
Still, after all these months; Obama still gets 'full' street cred for this book! As he does also for his 'self-assigned' title per 'Professor of Law' (not in a heartbeat, of course). Even Hannity and O'Reilly do not go here. Beck, OTOH. . .lol/sigh; but soon gone; though I hope not far. .
It goes back much further. Somehow -- perhaps through the left-wing contacts of Obama's white grandparents -- the boy who would become Barack was tagged very early by influential leftists as a literal Manchurian Candidate. When he came of college age, he was sent off to the best ivy league schools. Someone arranged (paid for) the Harvard Law Review article that began to forge Obama's celebrity, and someone brought the article to the attention of receptive mainstream media. Someone made the connection for Obama in Chicago's far left circles and introduced him to Ayres and Dorn, among others of that crowd. Someone greased his way through an extraordinarily rapid rise in Illinois law and political circles.
The outline of all this is easy for anyone to discern from a look at Obama's resume prior to 2008. One doesn't need any special qualifications to see the outlines of the truth in his resume -- no special qualifications except an open mind, that is.
Yes, for those of us who sell books to a publisher for a living, it’s astounding that he got away with that. There is no way my publisher (Penguin) would allow me to keep an advance and not turn in a book.
How did he ever get a book contract, let alone an advance? He was a nobody in 1993.
