Who is Barack Obama? Who is Barack Obama? His opponents did well to paint obscure pictures of him. One of the questions still lingering on the electorate's mind from the 2008 presidential elections has been: Is Obama a Moslem or a Christian? As the 2012 election approaches many may still be wondering if the question is settled. You can rest assured that the same question would be raised again by his opponents in 2012. May be like many you are also wondering what the true answer is. Well if you are then this is the book for you. In this book you will not only find out the religious affiliation of Obama but you will also find more answers likely to be raised in 2012 such as: Is Barack Obama the anti-Christ? Is Barack Obama a terrorist? Is Barack Obama the black icon of the 21st century? Is Obama an icon of a post-racial age? Does Obama embody inter nations? Does Obama symbolize multi-culturalism? Does Obama compare with Mahatma Gandhi and the legendary Martin Luther King? Does Barack Obama exhibit an extraordinary capacity to transcend historical racial divides? Can you trust Barack Obama? You deserve to know the truth. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Andrew Quinn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/002867/bk_acx0_002867_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
How did the Obama campaign's mostly under-30 field organizers, using cell phones and the Internet, energize a nation to vote for change? How did an unlikely candidate engage every American in the democratic process and ignite a movement that ended eras of political cynicism and apathy? The Obama Revolution is an in-the-trenches look at how President Barack Obama mobilized a generation to reclaim America. In this timely book, the author draws a vivid picture of grassroots organizing, from the grueling all-nighters to the endless canvassing, and explores the steps Obama took to clinch the Democratic nomination and win the election. 1.

The audiobook that debunks, in compelling detail, the phony media narrative that Barack Obama had a "scandal-free" presidency. "I'm proud of the fact that [...] we're probably the first administration in modern history that hasn't had a major scandal in the White House." So President Barack Obama boldly declared before leaving office, and numerous times since. But is it true? Not according to Matt Margolis, best-selling co-author of The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama. Margolis lays out the details of literally dozens of Obama administration scandals that have been ignored, downplayed, or covered-up by the mainstream media. From "Fast and Furious", to the illegal IRS targeting of conservative groups, to the recent NSA spying outrage, Margolis makes a powerful case that the Obama years represented nearly a decade of lawless and abusive governance. While Obama and his allies attempt to spin the narrative that his presidency represented a time of pristine politics, it's critically important that Americans understand the truth - Barack Obama brought to Washington corrupt Chicago machine politics of cronyism and corporate payoffs, combined with audacious Alinskyite tactics aimed at dividing Americans and destroying his opponents. Obama's legacy will be discussed and debated for decades. But in the early months after he left office, more scandals have been uncovered - most notably an illegal scheme of using the NSA to spy on his political opponents and the frightening decision to block the prosecution of Iranian-backed terrorists. Far from being a virtuous New Camelot, the Obama administration abused its power like few others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Cefalos.

Here is the biography of America's hottest political superstar, Barack Obama, from a journalist who has been covering Obama's career since his successful run for the US Senate. Barack Obama's meteoric rise is the stuff of legend. Since his headline-grabbing speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2004, Obama has come to represent the promise of unity among groups of all types: blacks and whites; Democrats, Republicans, and moderates; the upper, middle, and lower classes. In this groundbreaking biography, veteran journalist and Obama chronicler David Mendell gives an in-depth, comprehensive portrait of a man whose name has become a catchphrase for hope in a politically jaded society desperate for a new star. Mendell has covered Obama since the beginning of his Senate campaign and, as a result, enjoys far-reaching access to the new senator. His research includes exclusive interviews with Obama's closest aides, mentors, political adversaries, and family. Mendell reveals the surprising, cutthroat campaign tactics sanctioned by Obama - who has steeped his image and reputation in the ideals of clean politics and good government - which enabled him to win his Senate seat by employing some of the most ruthless operatives in the business. Eye-opening, well-researched, and compulsively listenable, Obama: From Promise to Power is a necessary look at the evolution of a politician from public servant to candidate-savior. 1.

Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, London-based author and playwright Bonnie Greer seeks to demonstrate that Barack Obama's presidency is what she calls a 'South Side Presidency'. And that it is only the South Side of Chicago, with its history and culture and institutions, that could have sent an African American, in this day and age, to the White House. Obama Music is a mixture of anecdotes about her own growing up in one of America's most formidable black communities, mixed in with observations on the origins and progress of the music of the South Side: gospel, blues, soul and jazz, and Barack and Michelle Obama's relation to the sound of their community. All of this is woven in with history ranging from the Great Migration at the end of World War One to the end of the '60s, an era Obama himself has stated that he feels close to. This is not a conventional history book, nor a reporter-on-the campaign-trail account. Obama Music is one African American woman's account of watching, from the other side of the ocean, history being made, a history rooted in the community of her birth, right in her own hometown. Small, opinionated, personal, anecdotal and full of music and insights, this book can sit alongside the more heavyweight tomes as a footnote to the phenomenon that is Obama Music. 1.

Obama's presidency has suffered the fiercest opposition any administration has had and yet Mr. Obama has managed to lead the country to financial recovery, end the senseless war in Iraq, implement universal healthcare, put an end to Iran's nuclear ambitions and re-open diplomatic relations with Cuba all the while remaking US standing in the world. But Republicans believe he is the worst president the country has had. This book outlines the major successes and failures of his presidency The Obama presidency has been marked by a number of events which might make it difficult for people outside the United States and his opponents in the country to understand the impact his administration has had in the country and across the globe. To address this problem, this book provides a glimpse at what Obama has accomplished or failed to accomplish during his two-term presidency. The book does not however claim to provide a complete history of Obama's presidency; it does not claim to even provide a full listof the topics which are discussed herein. This book is simply an attempt to present a snippet of his accomplishments in the face of relentless misinformation and fake news. So, without fluff or partisanship, the book looks into Obama presidency through the lenses of history. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Theis.
