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.

In these five new essays, Krauthammer offers a critique of the Obama administration: its failed and ambivalent foreign policy, the lawlessness of its rule by executive order, and an air of detachment that has turned this into ´´an observer presidency´´.

Die Geschichte Amerikas ist faszinierend wie kaum eine andere: Beginnend mit dem Bürgerkrieg zwischen Nord- und Südstaaten, dem entscheidenden Eingreifen der USA in den 2. Weltkrieg, dem Desaster in Vietnam, der Terrorbekämpfung im 20. Jahrhundert bis hin zur Wahl Barack Obamas zum ersten farbigen Präsidenten. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Christian Schult.

Il 4 novembre 2008, il senatore dell´Illinois Barack Obama fu eletto come 44º presidente degli Stati Uniti d´America, dopo aver battuto l´allora senatore dell´Arizona John McCain. Quel giorno Obama si convertì nel primo presidente afroamericano nella storia del Paese. La storia di Obama è la storia dell´America stessa. Cresciuto in una famiglia di classe media, il duro lavoro e un´educazione solida sono stati i suoi unici strumenti per arrivare lontano, assieme alla convinzione che una vita che valga la pena di essere vissuta deve essere votata al servizio degli altri. La presidenza Obama ha portato a casa dei risultati importanti in tema di politica internazionale e nazionale. In questo breve viaggio nella carriera politica di Barack Obama, vediamo i punti forti e i punti deboli del suo doppio mandato e analizziamo l´eredità politica e sociale che ha lasciato nelle mani dei posteri e del futuro presidente, Donald Trump. 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.
