The Promise is America's Dream Come True

For decades we have had presidents who are all about making false promises. Some promises are better, than others, yet we still believed, still waited and still hoped. Obama has lifted America up by the boot straps and evoked the kind of change that we needed and craved. No longer can we continue to wait for false promises and he realizes this in the book. This is a great read to help the future generation know the mistakes of past presidents and the aids that left America in shambles and in dedt to foreign countries such as China. I want my children to know the truth about this wonderful president and how he did everything he can humanly do to make America better and stronger for future generations, as well as present day ones. There are factual and contextual data found throughout the book that support his values, ideas and theories.

In reading the reviews, I am questioning whether reviewers such as DartVadar are reviewing the book for its quality of writing or for providing political comment which I find totally inappropriate. They should use the blogs, editorial columns, etc. for those type of comments or even through your elected officials. Would appreciate it if Barnes and Noble would encourage reviewers to stick to reviewing books for quality of writing etc. Thank you.

    Left much?

    The author seems to be enamored of ,while supposedly doing a journalist's work, the worst president since Wilson and Carter. I wouldn't recommend this for conservative and anyone else who craves the days of "true 'HOLD THEIR FEET TO THE FIRE' journalism"
