Its a good thing President Obama already has written two autobiographies; otherwise, he would have a hard time finding a kind word on the bookshelves.
The publishing industry is pumping out anti-Obama books authored by conservatives in numbers normally reserved for young-adult novels about teenage vampires. More than 30 nonfiction titles blasting the president have been released by publishers this year, with several more hotly anticipated works expected to hit bookstores before the Nov. 6 election.
You might expect to see a similar deluge of pro-Obama books by liberal authors, but its not even close. The only laudatory book about the president to crack the best-seller list in the past month is The New New Deal by Michael Grunwald.
Why the disparity?
Its simple: This is where the money is to be made, said Aaron Klein, author of Fool Me Twice: Obamas Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed, which is No. 18 on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction best-seller list. This angle is selling books, so obviously, publishers are going to be publishing more on the anti-Obama side of the scale.
Analysts attribute the boom to several factors, including intense interest in and dissatisfaction with Mr. Obama, the heightened attention on presidential politics in an election year and moves by major publishers to reach out to conservative readers.
Not all of the best-sellers about the president take sides. Barack Obama: The Story by David Maraniss examines the presidents family history and upbringing, while The Price of Politics by Bob Woodward, slated for release Tuesday, goes behind the scenes of the 2011 debt-ceiling debate.
Compare that with titles too numerous to list that are critical of the president, starting with The Amateur by Edward Klein, a best-seller that was knocked off top spot this week by Obamas America,

Here’s another one about Obama and his associates (Blagojevich and Jackson, Jr.):
Bob Woodward, “conservative”.
But the polls have Obama leading! Whatever, I’m not buying the poll nonsense. Perhaps I have faith in Americans as a whole yet?
The polls always have the dem leading at this time in the election. They have to make it look like a fight and try and depress republicans and independents from voting republican.
The polls always correct themselves the last 2 weeks of the election cycle to reflect reality and leave the pollsters some credibility for the next round.
The only truth right now is the internal campaign polls and you are not going to get to see that.
Assume that virtually EVERYTHING the MSM is putting out today is a lie when it comes to politics. They are in the tank and so looking at it read between the lines...
IF they are spouting all of this Obama love then what they are really saying holy crap this guy is gonna lose. I call it inversion thinking, hear what they are “saying” and realize the opposite is true. Look at all of the scrutiny the polls are getting and show that they have to way over sample friendly voters and ignore risky ones to even keep it close.
Herr Goebbels would be proud to see them in action
“If you repeat the same lie often enough it becomes the truth”
