The Obama Nation: Why It is Bad for Our Wellbeing

A must read about Barack Hussein Obama - "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality" by Jerome Corsi. My daughter gave me Obama's book "The Audacity of Hope" for Christmas 19 months ago. I may just buy her this book for a pre-election present. Here is Amazon's website for it.

The reviews of this book on Amazon reflect the polarization of this nation's readers. This is a love it or hate it book. Based on the number of pro and con reviews, most readers are Obama supporters which apparently means reading doesn't necessarily equate with common sense.

Now my take on the polarization of review comments for this book:

Reviewers either want their country to remain strong and free or weak and subject to the tyranny of others.

Reviewers either want to keep more of their own money to do what they believe is best with it, or agree to have more of their money forcibly taken by the government to give to others who won't do for themselves.

Reviewers either cherish their heritage, beliefs and culture, or believe any other heritage, belief, and culture is just as valuable, whether it be that of radical Islamists, perverts, or socialists.

Reviewers either respect and trust the wisdom and experience of age, or they are viscerally attracted to youthfulness, groundless promises, and ignorant ideas.
