Forget Rush, Sean, and Fox. READ what Obama’s closest inner circle and those who’ve actually dealt with Obama have said about him!
by Edward Klein
Bathed in the adulation of a receptive crowd at the 2012 Democrat Convention and the Fleetwood Mac refrain that was his 1992 victory lap, Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow, former President Bill Clinton strained his voice—and his waning health and patience—to endorse Barack Obama as the Democrat nominee for President of the United States.
But what was Clinton’s opinion of the man he’d just endorsed for President just one year earlier?
“‘I’ve had two successors since I left the White House—Bush and Obama—and I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama. I have no relationship with the president—none whatsoever. Obama doesn’t know how to be president.’” 
Clinton didn’t stop there.
“‘He doesn’t know how to world works. He’s incompetent. He’s… he’s…’
They (Hillary and Chelsea) waited for the politician par excellence to deliver his final judgment on the forty-fourth president of the United States.
‘Barack Obama,’ said Bill Clinton, ‘is an amateur!’” 
And thus, the impeached former President of the United States offered his opinion of the 44th President,… and inadvertently provided the title to Klein’s book.
Through actual personal interviews conducted by the author, the public gets the clearest picture yet of a man absolutely out of his depth as President of the United States!
Again, these statements are not from Obama’s detractors, but Obama’s closest, like-minded acquaintances.
Klein interviewed people who interacted with Obama long before he even maneuvered his way onto the national political stage. People like Obama’s personal physician, Dr. David Scheiner. Jeri Wright—the daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (whom Klein also interviewed).
In all, Klein interviewed nearly 100 named people, most of whom are not household names like, N’DIGO publisher, Hermene Hartman.  People like the successful black private businessman turned Northwest University’s Kellogg School of Management professor, Steven Rogers.
In his acknowledgements, Edward Klein outlined his function as a faithful reporter in writing this book;
“One of the great pleasures of reporting a non-fiction book is that it forces you to get outside your zone of comfort. This is a good thing for a writer, for it compels you to do things you wouldn’t ordinarily do—speak with strangers, make new friends, and renew forgotten acquaintances. Perhaps most important of all, it shakes you out of your intellectual complacency, and makes you re-examine your assumptions and justify your conclusions.” 
So, if you really want to vet Obama before you decide to cast your vote for a second term, and you're too dismissive of Rush, Sean, and Fox News, then shake yourself, “out of your intellectual complacency… and justify your conclusions,” as Klein suggested!

You will never look upon Barack Obama the same way, ever again!
