9781455134755: The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House

[This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]

It's amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times bestselling author Edward Klein in his political expose' The Amateur. Tapping into the public's growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama's toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

''Obama was both completely inexperienced and ideologically far to the left of most Americans when he entered the White House,'' says Klein. ''And he was so arrogant that he didn't even know what he didn't know.''

Klein, who is known for getting the inside scoop on everyone from the Kennedys to the Clintons, reveals never-before-published details about the Obama administration's political inner workings, as well as Barack and Michelle's personal lives, including:

--The inordinate influence Michelle wields over Barack and her feud with a high-profile celebrity

--The real reason Rahm Emmanuel left the White House (it wasn't for family reasons)

--Why Valerie Jarrett's role is closer to that of Rasputin than impartial senior advisor

--How Obama has purposefully forgotten and ignored those who put him in power, including the Kennedys and the Jewish and African American communities in Chicago

From Obama's conceited and detached demeanor, to his detrimental reliance on Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett's advice, to the Obamas' extravagant and out-of-touch lifestyle, The Amateur reveals a president whose ignorance and incompetence are sabotaging himself, his presidency, and America.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for "The Amateur"

""The Amateur" is the best book I've read on how Barack Obama is wrecking our country. I urge everyone who cares about America to read Edward Klein's eye-opening book."
--Donald J. Trump, world-famous businessman, owner and host of the hit NBC TV shows "The Apprentice" and "Celebrity Apprentice," and bestselling author of many titles, including "Time to Get Tough: Making America #1 Again"

"This is a racy, entertaining, informative book that illuminates aspects of Obama and his team that have not been previously reported. A necessary antidote to the Obama worship that is sure to characterize the election debate."
--Dinesh D'Souza, president of The King's College and bestselling author of "The Roots of Obama's Rage"

"All the horrors I predicted in "Welcome to Obamaland" have now been definitively proven true by Edward Klein's rip-roaringly readable new book "The Amateur," which uses great stories and great reporting to illustrate just how ideological, arrogant, and hapless Obama and his administration really are. An outstanding demolition job on the most overrated president of our time."
--James Delingpole, columnist for the "Daily Telegraph" and the "Spectator" and author of "Welcome to Obamaland"

"A devastating indictment of the lethal combination of incompetence and radicalism that has made Obama into one of the worst presidents in American history."
--Norman Podhoretz, former editor of "Commentary" magazine and author of many books, including most recently, "Why Are Jews Liberals?"

From the Inside Flap:

Think you know the real Barack Obama? You don't--not until you've read "The Amateur"
In this stunning expose, bestselling author Edward Klein--a contributing editor to "Vanity Fair," former foreign editor of "Newsweek," and former editor-in-chief of the "New York Times Magazine"--pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive White Houses in history. He reveals a callow, thin-skinned, arrogant president with messianic dreams of grandeur supported by a cast of true-believers, all of them united by leftist politics and an amateurish understanding of executive leadership.
In "The Amateur" you'll discover:
Why the so-called "centrist" Obama is actually "in revolt" against the values of the society he was elected to lead
Why Bill Clinton loathes Barack Obama and tried to get Hillary to run against him in 2012
The spiteful rivalry between Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey
How Obama split the Kennedy family
How Obama has taken more of a personal role in making foreign policy than any president since Richard Nixon--with disastrous results
How Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett are the real powers behind the White House throne
"The Amateur" is a reporter's book, buttressed by nearly 200 interviews, many of them with the insiders who know Obama best. The result is the most important political book of the year. You will never look at Barack Obama the same way again.
