Is Obama even good at being an amateur?
Edward Klein's new book on Barack Obama, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, is a withering portrayal
of a radical adrift, in over his head, drowning in his own incompetency
-- while being weighed down by a small circle of "advisers" who are
compounding the problem of the Amateur in the White House.
book begins with a talisman-like quote uttered by Barack Obama when his
recently appointed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner tried to boost
Obama's ego by telling him, "Your legacy is going to be preventing the
second Great Depression." To which Barack Obama responded, "That's not
enough for me."
all of America knows by now, Obama has aggressively sought to
"fundamentally transform" America -- one of the few promises he has kept
from the days of 2008. Five trillion dollars of borrowing, ObamaCare
passed over the objections of the majority of Americans through
legislative legerdemain and special deals made with resistant
politicians, failed stimulus, green programs failing left and right as
taxpayers are left holding the bag, a recovery that is the most anemic
on record, an America that has been sundered by the man who promises to
unite us, America weaker abroad and at home -- yes, America has been
fundamentally transformed. Mission Accomplished.
This article is a great read with lots of insight re Barry and Michelle Obama. I believe the author of the article and the author of the book to be exactly on target.
