liberal media person writes a book about the man in the White House being a
total amateur, we know things are bad. This is a must read for every American
citizen before voting in November 2012.
Ed Klein is author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House (Regnery, May 2012). It has spent 12 weeks between #1 and #10 on the New York Times Best Seller List.
Klein isn’t a lightweight who can be considered a crazy conservative. His credentials are liberal, or as we say "mainstream."
He is former editor-in-chief of New York Times Magazine, former foreign editor of Newsweek and a contributing editor to Vanity Fair; publications known for most often taking liberal political and social views.
Claiming Obama as an amateur politician and inadequate president, Klein cites incidents and quotes from over 200 people including administration insiders, media moguls, Hollywood figures and prominent political families, like Oprah Winfrey and the Kennedys. None of these people have claimed being misquoted.
As a reporter observing the administration, Klein states Obama is an incompetent manager who re-uses bad economic policies and blames everything on anyone who disagrees with him (pp.2-3).
Obama's own physician, a man known for far-left ideas about benefits of socialized medicine, stated he doesn't see the president's health care plan working; that what has become known as “Obamacare” lacks any cost control guide and is destined to fail (p. 16).
A man who once hired Obama as a lawyer for his firm has said there was nothing in his experience to qualify him for the position of president (p.22).
One witness to Obama’s time in the Illinois Senate stated he hardly ever showed up, had no interest in government and just wanted to make speeches (pp.23-24). Another says Obama (was) blinded by his own ambition (p.28).
Klein indicates Obama was so close to Reverend Jeremiah Wright that he began talking in the same manner and using Wright’s tactics in speeches. Wright's ideals contain Marxist theology and redistribution of wealth to poor people (pp.35-37).
Obama denounces rich people as an evil of our society. Yet, Obama's net worth is quoted at approximately 10.5 million (p.41). Michelle Obama once had a job at the University of Chicago Medical Center making $317,000 a year – a job she got through the guy who processed the Obama home mortgage, a house worth around $1.3 million (p.117).
Throughout the book, words like arrogance, superiority, and fails to correct mistakes are used to describe Obama – same traits the Democrats attributed to President George W. Bush during the Iraq War.
It's said Obama can't stand long periods of contact with small groups outside of his own immediate circle (p.82), and that his far-left job policies endanger American workers (p.83).
Klein states by Fall 2011, many liberal Americans voiced being disillusioned with President Obama (p.67); that he’s a great campaigner but can’t govern (p.71). The President lost 20 million TV viewers between his 2009 and 2012 State of the Union addresses (p.81).
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is captioned under a photo as being appalled by Obama’s amateur ways of handling negotiations. And on page p.163, it’s stated Obama admits Rahm Emanuel must explain Israeli politics to him.
Obama was overheard saying the economy isn’t that bad and that the GOP should stop complaining (p.131). This is believable, in light of his more recent "The private sector is doing fine" statement (realclearpolitics.com 6/8/12), blaming governors and mayors for state and local cuts while touting federal jobs he’s created somewhere.
Klein confirms that, while Obama spokesperson David Axelrod accuses the Republican-run House of doing nothing, their hands are tied in such matters (p.251). Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid hasn’t allowed a Republican jobs bill to come up for a vote in the Senate for three years.
Reporters traveling with Obama for various magazines state that the president often downgrades American values (p.203) and denies that America should be called a “superpower” (p.204).
I ask you, what other world leader goes around telling people their own country isn’t the best?
Klein reveals that the Justice Department was ordered by Obama to stop mentioning “extreme Islamic terrorism” and to only say that members of Al Qaeda are "murderers with an agenda" (p.212).
Klein concludes that the GOP candidate (Romney was not yet verified prior to publication) not only has to run against Obama but against the "mainstream media" who is in love with the president (p.230) – and they are in love with him even though he was never properly vetted by same media (240).
Update: Since writing this post, I've discovered three more books breaking negative insider news about Obama. One from two investigative journalists; one from a political analyst; and one from an ex-liberal financial banking insider who admits being blinded by Obama's bright promise for "change" in 2008 -- but not any more:
Fool Me Twice: Obama's Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years, Klein/Elliot.
Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream, D'Souza.
USA: Unaware, Scared and Angry, Smeltz.
It's time to Pray for America, that whether President Obama or Governor Romney gets elected, both men will be endowed with God's Truth, along with us, and do the right thing.
