Great review and details of Kantor book on RedState

I know, I know, regular readers are going to think I am fixated on the National Enquirer aspects of the Obamas, but honestly you really should know some of the details of their lives in the White House.  Their hypocritical behavior and narcissistic view of themselves really does have implications for our future success as a strong nation.

Not that you already don’t know that they need to go!  But, if nothing else at minimum read this RedState review perhaps to fire you up even more (or to help persuade your ‘independent’ neighbors) to move them (Barack and Michelle) on to retirement.  Help give Obama his dearest wish— a private plane and his personal valet— to help them pack up and move out of the White House.

An aside:  I know we are all feeling pretty anxious (upset and angry) about which of the Republican contenders would be best to take his place, but perhaps while this is all shaking out and most of us can do nothing to help, please focus on Obama to all of your friends and neighbors who are not the political junkies we are.   Perhaps they aren’t following all the ins and outs of policy, but they will surely ‘get it’ about the Obama’s from incidents related in the Kantor book.

I’ve mentioned Jodi Kantor’s book (‘The Obamas’) a couple of times here and here.   Today I see that RedState posted this very thorough review of the book on Sunday.   Reviewer Mike Paranzino says:

Something didn’t smell right. A woman with impeccable liberal credentials – Ivy League-educated, a former Slate staffer now writing for the New York Times, who lives in Brooklyn with her journalist hubby – pens a book about the Obamas’ marriage (The Obamas by Jodi Kantor). Sounds like an election year ad for The One’s re-election, right?

But then suddenly, the Democratic Media (what many folks wrongly call the “MSM” or “Mainstream Media” – 80% of Americans are not liberal, so what is “mainstream” about liberal propaganda?) began spirited attacks on the book, even before many of them had read it. The White House issued a statement criticizing the book. Most surprising, Michelle Obama herself was deployed to CBS to attack the book – and even shamefully played the race card to smear the author (did I mention Kantor quit Harvard Law to become a journalist?):

“I guess it’s just more interesting to imagine this conflicted situation here,” [Michelle Obama] said. “That’s been an image people have tried to paint of me since the day Barack announced, that I’m some kind of angry black woman.”

The over-the-top nature of the attacks seemed odd – which is why I had to read the book. Why the fury to kill this book?

Obama White House works to kill the book by calling Kantor a “racist.”

What may have drawn the ire of the Obama White House is Kantor’s reporting that the Obama political operation intends to exploit America’s affection for the First Family to win crucial votes for a president who can’t run on his failed record.

Kantor would have to be destroyed – attacked as a racist! – and the book marginalized, then, because the White House does not want it known that Barack and Michelle Obama will mine Americans’ goodwill about them and their kids for partisan, political gain.

Your job, is to help dispel the myth about the lovely family in the White House—a myth that will otherwise win them hundreds of thousands of votes from people who are not paying attention.

Paranzino then tells us more, a lot more!  of what is in the book!  Please read RedState here.  At the end he suggests that Kantor might be able to get even with the Obama’s for suggesting she is a racist and killing her book sales (it is dropping on Amazon) when her paperback comes out in August.

Paranzino wonders aloud what else Kantor might have learned that is left out in the recent release.  Funny, I wondered that too because you could tell that Kantor was conflicted—surely an original supporter of Obama who learned more than she probably wanted to know.   As that old expression goes, the scales appear to have fallen from her eyes.
