A turd!

I disagree with the last review. President Obama has not "igorned the constition".

This book is just a bunch of biased gibberish hoping to sell copies to right-wing radicals because it has a controversial title.

Seriously, how can you honestly say it is not racist...

Seriously, how can you honestly say it is not racist when it automatically connects Obama to thugs and gangsters. If he was not black those terms wouldn't be anywhere near him.

He's not Straight Outta Compton. He's Straight Outta... Honolulu.

    Wake up!

    David Freddoso sounds a warning about the changing role of government in his new book, Gangster Government. He describes the policies, laws and tactics that have already reshaped interactions between citizens and their government. Beginning with the auto bailout, he reports the facts in a journalistic and engaging style. He draws on his prowess as a reporter to explore Obama's relationship with unions, his questionable treatment of political opponents and the Administration's sustained efforts to undercut the political process. While clearly not a fan of the Obama Administration, Freddoso uses factual information to reveal some deeply disturbing events. This book is not a political rant, but a well-crafted wake up call!
