Love President Obama or hate him, you will be surprised to learn how many parallels there are between Lincoln, the 16th president, and Obama, the 44th president. Some similarities are obvious and predictable, but others are fascinating, uncanny, and mysterious. This is the fascinating account of two obscure Illinois lawyer-politicians separated by 150 years who against all odds came to the White House. This is an American story about success and failure, ambition and hatred, politics and passion. It´s even more remarkable to hear how much Lincoln and Obama had in common as we live through a presidency that couldn´t be more different.

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.

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.

Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious, and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America - they will be met. On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord. On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics. We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. 1.
