Barack Obama and the Future of American Politics: Paul Street
A provocative critique of the Obama administration´s economic policies and an examination of America´s difficult economic future. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama promised ´´a net spending cut´´ to make government smaller in order to reduce the deficit. But this huge increase in government spending and debt, and the resulting prospect of higher taxes, will make America a poorer country. Are Americans happier because the government has determined where this money should be spent? According to John Lott and Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist, the answer is no, and in Debacle: Obama´s War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future they explain why. Obama´s economic policies have raised unemployment, slowed economic growth, dramatically raised the national debt, squandered taxpayer money through poor investments, and damaged the housing market. The book explains why Obama´s policies on spending, taxes, and regulation have all worked to harm the recovery, increase unemployment, and depress housing prices. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the deficits that President Obama proposes for the years from 2011 through 2020 come to a staggering $126,000 per family of four, and John Lott and Grover Norquist make clear why the costs outweigh the benefits Explains why Keynesian economics is more a way of transferring wealth to political constituencies than a legitimate economic theory for understanding how the economy operates Posits that Obama´s economic policies were more an opportunity ´´to do big things´´ than to solve the country´s economic problems Arguing that the policies of the Obama administration have created widespread economic chaos, Debacle is a bleak look at American finance from Grover Norquist.

In third grade, Barack Obama wrote an essay entitled, ´´I Want to Become President´´ - and he is, to this day, determined to show the world that, yes, he can.

His campaign for the presidency is powered by a fierce optimism, an exuberant sense of purpose and determination, and, above all, a belief that change can happen.

When Bill O´Reilly interviewed then-Senator Barack Obama during the 2008 Presidential elections, the two had a lively debate about the nation´s future. Since that time, America has changed rapidly - some would even say seismically - and many believe these shifts are doing more than just rocking the political and social climate; they´re rocking the American core. In his latest spirited book, O´Reilly prompts further debate with the president and the American people on the current state of the union. While the changes that took place in America during President Obama´s first 18 months in office are dizzying to just think about, their real-life impact on the average American is a helluva lot stronger than that. Tempers have reached the boiling point over the shifts in health care, immigration, national security, energy, and the environment. And then there´s the economy. O´Reilly sorts it all out with his trademark mix of humor and bluster in his most impassioned book to date. This is just the book to guide you through the most important issues of the midterm elections and beyond. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill O´Reilly.
