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.

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.

So many people were sure that Donald John Trump’s participation in the 2016 presidential election was just a publicity stunt, a joke, an effort to gain attention. Many were certain that surely this man, who has no experience in politics, wouldn’t follow through and pursue the country’s highest political office. Donald Trump had an exciting campaign for the presidency: from his investigation and instigating of opponent Hillary Clinton to his seemingly never-ending promises for success after the election. In Trump Revealed: A Great President? we will first offer a short biography of who the 45th president of the United States is, followed by facts about his presidential campaign trail, Trump’s goals for the 45th presidency, the election results of the 2016 presidential election, and what was accomplished during Donald Trump’s first year in office as the United States of America’s 45th President. Trump Revealed: A Great President? evaluates the Trump presidency from the announcement of his candidacy to October 2017 (almost through to the end of the first year of his presidency). Including quotes and tweets from President Donald Trump, while taking a neutral standpoint to clearly display a brief biography of Donald Trump and his political goals, the information contained within this audiobook leaves it up for you to decide the following: Is Donald J. Trump truly working for the American people or just working towards benefiting his own personal legacy? Is Donald Trump taking the presidency seriously, or is this position of power the result of a publicity stunt gone too far? What was Donald Trump trying to prove on the campaign trail? What is he trying to achieve in office? Has he achieved some of his goals while holding office as the 45th president of the United States of America? And lastly, is Donald Trump really doing as he promised and making America great again? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Glynn Amburgey.

George Walker Bush (born July 6, 1946) is an American politician and businessman who served as the 43rd president of the United States, from 2001 to 2009, and the 46th governor of Texas, from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W. Bush, he was born in New Haven, Connecticut. After graduating from Yale University in 1968 and Harvard Business School in 1975, Bush worked in the oil businesses. He married Laura Welch in 1977 and ran unsuccessfully for the House of Representatives shortly thereafter. He later co-owned the Texas Rangers baseball team before defeating Ann Richards in the 1994 Texas gubernatorial election. Bush was elected president in 2000 after a close and controversial election, becoming the fourth president to be elected while receiving fewer popular votes nationwide than his opponent. Bush is the second president to have been the son of a former president, the first having been John Quincy Adams. He is also the brother of Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida. 1. Language: English.

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.

On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. The outspoken businessman, real estate developer, and television personality had previously declared some interest in becoming a candidate for public office in 2000 and 2012, but it wasn´t until June 2015 that his political goals became clear. When he first announced his plan to become the Republican Party candidate for the 2016 presidential election, his chances of success were widely dismissed and often ridiculed by large numbers of Americans, including influential members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. Trump quickly took the lead ahead of the 16 other contenders for the Republican nomination and, by May 2016, it was obvious that he would be representing the party in the November 2016 election. While his success in winning the nomination had come as a surprise to many of his opponents and detractors, the results of the November 8th general election astonished millions of observers around the world as they came to realize that, with no previous government or military experience, Donald J. Trump had defeated the highly experienced Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Trump´s approach to both the nomination and election campaigns was unconventional and controversial. He ignored many traditional political strategies, routinely used insults and name-calling in dealing with his opponents, held dozens of sometimes raucous public rallies, and relied on Twitter as one of his primary means of communication. Promising to ´´make America great again´´, Trump spoke in opposition to free trade, climate change, and immigration, pledging that he would have a wall erected along the US-Mexico border and would make Mexico pay for it. 1.
