While I admit that I have not read the entire book yet, I was wondering what comments are out there concerning this book.

Any comments?

I'm in the process of reading it right now.....about 2/3 finished. All I can say is that the book is a gigantic damnation of Barack Obama and his inexperienced White House. Everything i've read reinforces the notions that I had before reading the book. A total catastrophe this Administration is, and surprisingly lots and lots of people close to Obama and Michelle were willing to give their very frank insight into this President. Trust me, it's not flattering to the President.

It's a riveting book, but I highly doubt any of the liberals on this forum are objective enough to even think of reading it. They're too scared to pull back the curtains and shed sunlight on the places where they'd prefer darkness.

Why bother?

I think re-electing Obama is the worst thing we could do...............................EXCEPT putting another saber rattling ChickenS**T ChickenHawk in the White House which would be infinitely worse.

You don't want to "bother" educating yourself as to what the opposition is saying/doing, but are content to hurl unjustified insults as your sole means of political debate?

I don't need to purchase or read a book to understand what a disaster Obama has been to this country. We are living the nightmare and our children and grandchildren will be stuck with the tab and grow up with less personal liberty as a result of statists and their large central government ways.

What unjustified insult?

Romney supported the Vietnam War/draft while conveniently avoiding both.

As far as I'm concerned that makes him a ChickenS**T ChckenHawk, a real warrior just as long as it doesn't mean putting his sorry ass on the line and nothing but a potential disaster if placed in command.

How many times must it be pointed out to you about the Obama administration and the signing of the Patriot Act (permanently), NDAA, and many of Obama's Executive orders having virtually gutted the 4, 5th & 6th amendments of the US Constitution as well as now part of the 1st Amendment freedom of speech (anywhere the Secret Sefvice may be present). Additionally, the ever surging national debt places future generations into financial servitude to the state. Really, try to keep up with what this administration is doing. My mistake, I took you for being more informed.

Would that be like Obama talking about taking the hard line in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan while avoiding a personal involvement in any of them? Talk about a disaster being placed in command, and not "potential".
