Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream , ...

In his controversial New York Times best seller, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Dinesh D’Souza answered the question on everyone’s mind: why is President Obama hell-bent on seeing America fail? The reason, D’Souza explained, is Obama’s fervent anticolonial ideology. Here, in his blockbuster follow-up, Obama’s America, D’Souza shows how President Obama is applying his anticolonial ideology to unmake America and turn it into a country our founders would hardly recognize. Obama came into office with an eight-year plan for America, argues D’Souza. If he’s reelected in 2012, he will be able to finish the job—and destroy America’s future. Making the case that Obama must be a one-term president, Obama’s America reveals what unchecked power will do to this great nation and is a must-listen for anyone who cares about America and her future. Dinesh D’Souza is the president of King’s College in New York City and author of the New York Times best seller The Roots of Obama’s Rage. He is also a former White House domestic policy analyst and research scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. His other best-selling books include What’s So Great about Christianity, What’s So Great about America, and Life after Death. He lives in New York with his wife and daughter. 1. Language: English.

Obama on the Home Front: Domestic Policy Triump...

The record of any American President attracts attention, but Barack Obama, the first African-American president in the nation's 240-year history, is of special interest. Obama came into office as the economy was careening into the worst downturn since the Great Depression. On the political front, he would be challenged by the intense congressional polarization faced by Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, exacerbated by the rise of the Tea Party movement. In this comprehensive assessment of domestic policymaking, John D. Graham considers what we may learn from the Obama presidency about how presidents can best implement their agendas when Congress is evenly divided. What did Obama pledge to do in domestic policy and what did he actually accomplish? Why did some initiatives succeed and others fail? Did Obama's policies contribute to the losses experienced by the Democratic Party in 2010 and 2014? In carefully documented case studies of economic policy, health care reform, energy and environmental policy, and immigration reform, Graham asks whether Obama was effective at accomplishing his agenda. Counterfactuals are analyzed to suggest ways that Obama might have been even more effective than he was and at less political cost to his party. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randall R. Berner.

In this hour, what's it like to hang out with the U.S. president? Journalist Michael Lewis found out when he shadowed Barack Obama for 8 months, even playing in one of Obama's pick-up basketball games. Lewis calls the presidency "an absurd job" and he describes Obama as "wildly competitive." Next, what made Lincoln a great president? Was he a closet racist? We hear short interviews with Lincoln historians Doris Kearns Goodwin, Orville Vernon Burton and John Stauffer.Then, who's the real Barack Obama? That's what journalist David Maraniss wanted to know, so he traveled around the world - from Kenya to Kansas, from Indonesia to Hawaii - to see the places where Obama and his family lived, to talk with people who've known him. Maraniss says Obama's life is surrounded in myth.After that, how close are we to electing a woman as president? Journalist Rebecca Traister says "next election close." She expects to see a number of prominent women - both Democrats and Republicans - running for president in 2016.And finally, Robert Caro has spent nearly 40 years on his monumental biography of President Lyndon Johnson, and he's still not done. His fourth volume, The Passage to Power, tells the remarkable story of how LBJ became president after being humiliated as vice-president by Jack and Bobby Kennedy.
