Terms of the deal were not released but Financial Times reported bidding for the two-book deal had reached more than $65 million, a record amount for presidential memoirs.

He may be a little hung up on the chapter about his travel records for 1999 and the death of Donald Young in 2007. (If you have to ask, search for ‘donald young murder obama sinclair 2007’.)
Zero should be taxed at 100% above a minimum wage income. Fair is fair for Communists like him.
just a slush fund
More untracked political donations.
The MSM-Democrats went wall-to-wall with criticism of President Reagan when he accepted a $2 million offer for his memoirs.
Accused him of “cashing in” on his public service, for which he had been paid with taxpayer money.
President Grant’s memoirs were good, don’t think I’ll read Obama’s though.
Since neither of them can probably write beyond a sixth grade level, they’ll have to pay the teleprompter guy to ghost write for them.
What will the ghost writer get? $100k if he’s lucky?
But that's exactly where this printed drivel will end up: in a chain bookstore's remainder bin.
Only Obamas true believers will read this as the rest of us know he couldnt tell the truth if his life depended on it.
One of several ways people launder their money into daylight. Book publishers are complicit.
Barry and Chewbacca like running with the Hollywierdos and other millionaires, they think they are royalty. They need the money to fund their lavish lifestyle.
.....and they will never EVER be as successful as our wonderful multi-bilionaire POTUS. You KNOW that has to bother Barry and Chewbacca.
Not bad for a work of fiction.
How does the publisher recover $65 million?
Book deals are the way media corporations pay off leftist politicians and bureaucrats.
The only buyers for these books are institutional purchasers: libraries and such. It would not surprise me if 80% of the print run ended up in dumpsters, and 19% in cutout bins at flea markets and big box stores.
Simply a way to launder bribes for Dems.
