First, I like his personality, even though I disagree with many of his ideas. Second, I strongly believe that he loves this country, which is my son Benecdael´s country too. Third, he is funny and serious about his ideology. Furthermore, I love people no matter what their race, their ideology, and their faith are. Moreover, I think that he is a courageous man. Finally, he has an incredible impact on his fans, although I disagree with him in many things.According to Rush, things are falling apart in the White House because they are working on so many things at one time.I think that working on so many things at one time, if based on a well-organized plan, will not fail. I base this on the fact that Obama took the Oval Office at a time when so many things were going wrong. For example, the economic downturn, job losses, high gas prices, two wars.... 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.

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.

Political analyst and Democratic campaign veteran Mark Hannah gives Barack Obama the victory lap he deserves in this compendium that takes the president´s critics head-on and celebrates the president´s many underappreciated triumphs. Barack Obama´s election in 2008 was a watershed moment in American history that inspired supporters on the Left - and fired up enemies on the Right. Elected in the midst of multiple crises - a Wall Street meltdown that imperiled the global economy and American troops entangled in two foreign wars - Barack Obama´s presidency promised from the start to be one of the most consequential presidencies in modern American history. Although he stabilized the economy and restored America´s prestige on the global stage, President Obama has been denied the credit he deserves, receiving instead acidic commentary from political opponents such as former vice president Dick Cheney, who declared that Obama was ´´the worst president in [his] lifetime´´ - an accusation that reflects the politics of resentment and recrimination that has come to characterize the president´s critics. In The Best Worst President, Mark Hannah swiftly and systematically debunks conservative lies and disinformation meant to negate the president´s accomplishments and damage his reputation - baseless charges too often left unchallenged by the national media. The Best Worst President is a whip-smart takedown of these half truths and hypocrisies, each refuted in a smart, witty, fact-based style. Hannah not only defends the president but showcase his administration´s most surprising and underappreciated triumphs - making clear he truly is the best ´´worst president´´ our nation has ever known. 1.

Every American president, when faced with a crisis, longs to take bold and decisive action. When American lives or vital interests are at stake, the public - and especially the news media and political opponents - expect aggressive leadership. But, contrary to the dramatizations of Hollywood, rarely does a president have that option. In Presidents in Crisis, a former director of the Situation Room takes the listener inside the White House during 17 grave international emergencies handled by the presidents from Truman to Obama: from North Korea´s invasion of South Korea to the revolutions of the Arab Spring, and from the 13 days of the Cuban Missile Crisis to the taking of American diplomats hostage in Iran and George W. Bush´s response to the attacks of September 11, 2001. In narratives that convey the drama of unfolding events and the stakes of confrontation when a misstep can mean catastrophe, he walks us step-by-step through each crisis. Laying out the key players and personalities and the moral and political calculations that the leaders have had to make, he provides a fascinating insider´s look at modern presidential decision making and the fundamental role in it of human frailty.

Much has been said about global warming and climate change. There are, of course, both the proponents and the opponents of this environmental theory and both vigorous debate their ideological viewpoint with equal vigor. And now the debate has reached a truly global stage the United Nations, and none other than the Vatican´s Pope Francis himself have infused much of their energy and time debating the merits of deforestation and greenhouse gases. In the wake of the pope´s monumental Apocalyptic Encyclical on climate change, this audiobook seeks to present both of the sides of the debate, but not only that, it seeks to invoke the thoughts of the listener so that after ingesting so much energy and theories around the subject they can create their own interpretation of this complicated and multifaceted topic of global warming and climate change! Some topics covered are: Homeostasis of the Earth: Can our planet heal itself? The Al Gore debate: Science or sci-fi? Global warming or Global cooling? Who is responsible? Can we survive?

A bad craziness is snaking through America in the first years of the Obama administration: the wingnuts are on the attack! Whats a wingnut? A wingnut is someone on the far-right or far-left wing of the political spectrum - professional partisans, unhinged activists, and paranoid conspiracy theorists. Barack Obama campaigned as an antidote to the politics of polarization, promising to transcend the old divides of left and right, black and white, red states and blue. But in the first year of his presidency, he is presiding over an eruption of hate and hyper-partisanship that threatens to mock the promise upon which he was elected. Wingnuts is a reported exploration of the outer reaches of American politics, told from the perspectives of a radical centrist who believes that the far right and the far left are equally insane. On the way, we´ll meet the Queen of the Birthers, Orly Taitz, and the Orange County pastor who is openly praying for Obama´s death. We´ll get a look into the life of Obama senate opponent Alan Keyes and the draft-Palin movement, as well as the liberal anti-war Obama protestor Cindy Sheehan and her allies in Code Pink. Wingnuts also looks at people trying to bridge the political divide, like the Afghan war vet who founded Republicans for Obama. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John P. Avlon, Tina Brown (foreword).

Of the hundreds of books written about John F. Kennedy, none have yet taken the full measure of the role that Theodore Sorensen played in shaping his presidency. Serving as President Kennedy´s speechwriter from 1952 until 1963, Sorensen was a key advisor in the White House and a gatekeeper of the Kennedy legacy in the years after his assassination. This book presents a compelling portrait of Sorensen´s life and place in the American political landscape. He became an outspoken critic of corruption in politics, a vocal opponent of the militarist foreign policy approach that successive administrations adopted, and an advisor to Democratic presidential candidates such as Robert F. Kennedy and Barack Obama. Taking up questions about the role of presidential advisors and the concept of public service, an ideal that was central to the most famous of the speeches that Sorensen wrote for President Kennedy, Michelle A. Ulyatt offers new insight into Sorensen´s influence on the Kennedy years and the generation of leaders who came after.
