America´s Death Spiral - Blaming Obama Democrats and Political Correctness: Nick Velli
A collection of essays celebrating the influential former first lady, by an array of acclaimed contributors and with a foreword by Lena Dunham Michelle Obama´s legacy transcends categorization. Mrs. Obama was not only our first black first lady; she was President Obama´s equal partner in marriage and parenthood and a tireless advocate for women´s rights, education, healthy eating, and exercise. Her genre-busting personal style encouraged others to speak, to engage, even to dress as they wished. In an extension of his popular T, The New York Times Style Magazine feature, Nick Haramis has assembled 19 essays from prizewinning writers, Hollywood stars, and political leaders - all of whom have been moved and influenced by Mrs. Obama´s extraordinary example of grace in power. Here are original testimonials from Gloria Steinem, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Alice Waters, and Charlamagne tha God, among others. Presidential biographer Jon Meacham supplies historical perspective. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross suggests that Mrs. Obama ´´provided an antidote to all the false representations of black women that have inundated us for centuries.´´ Anna Wintour and designer Jason Wu celebrate the former first lady´s impact as an international fashion icon. Two ninth-grade girls - one in training to be a boxer - talk about how Mrs. Obama has emboldened them to be themselves. Here are some of the many facets of Michelle Obama as she continues to inspire us, a stirring reminder that the best of America once lived in the White House, embodied in one authentic, inclusive, and courageous woman.

He´s the media´s darling, an inspiration to many, and the answer to everything from healthcare to taxes. He is Barack Obama - the silver-tongued senator with a phrase for everything and a promise for everyone. Sound too good to be true? That´s what David Freddoso, investigative reporter and National Review Online columnist, examines in The Case Against Barack Obama.In this shocking expose, Freddoso explores the reality behind the rhetoric, the plans behind the promises, and the faults the facade, revealing: Why Obama´s inexperience and extreme left-wing voting record are more dangerous than any threat we face today. Why the Rev. Wright debacle reveals Obama´s poor judgment of character and deceitful nature. Why it won´t be politics of change with President Obama - it will be liberal politics as usual. Freddoso exposes the real Barack Obama: a typical big-government politician, the number-one most liberal U.S. senator, and - if he were commander-in-chief - a serious threat to our national security. 1.
