The Case Against Barack Obama

The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate
David Freddoso – ISBN – 9781596985667

If you read much, you’ve likely read at least one review of this book, excluding the mainstream media of course, so I shall be brief.

This is an extremely well researched book with pages and pages of end-notes so that you can check the references yourself. I have (done some) and they are unalterably accurate.

The author also gives a timeline of all of Obama’s activities, contributions and achievements . . . which is a rather short list if you exclude all of the bills his Illinois Senate mentor “let him” present as his (Barack’s) own during his last year in the state senate, thus to heavily pad his resume.

It is both a fascinating and frightening book. “The One” has done almost nothing outside of fostering his own career in politics, and much of that, while not specifically illegal is definitively crooked.

Obama’s several books are analyzed critically, and Freddoso makes pointed references to and analysis of this warped man, noting his exclusively left-wing education and mentors--not a few of them communists--and his immersion in the corrupt politics of Chicago. The author emphasizes that during the recent campaign Obama is refuting everything in his descriptions of himself in his books, “all the better, my pretty,” (my quote from the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz.)

Many of you have—I have—read these books. If read critically, which is assisted by Freddoso’s commentary, understanding this complex man is not so difficult. Whether or not you’ve read Obama’s books, you simply must read Freddoso’s before the election. It’ll surely give you cause for pause, and being informed is, on this occasion, more important than any election in my lifetime.

Do it!
