Overview

He's the media's darling, the fresh face of the Democratic ticket. But what does Barack Obama really stand for-and will his extreme liberal agenda and complete inexperience in global affairs endanger the country? That's what David Freddoso, investigative reporter and National Review Online columnist, examines in The Case Against Barack Obama. In this shocking exposé, Freddoso explores the reality behind the rhetoric, the plans behind the promises, and the faults behind the façade, revealing:

* Why Obama's inexperience and extreme left-wing voting record is more dangerous than any threat we face today
* Why the Rev. Wright debacle reveals Obama's poor judgment of character and deceitful nature
* Why it won't be politics of change with President Obama-it will be liberal politics as usual

Freddoso exposes the real Barack Obama: a typical big-government politician, the #1 most liberal U.S. senator, and-if he were commander in chief-a serious threat to our national security.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

National Review columnist Freddoso here proffers numerous reasons why Barack Obama is the wrong choice for U.S. President, identifying him as a liberal with "60s radicalization" who has not followed through on his reputation as a reformer and enumerating perceived past mistakes Obama has made as both an Illinois state and U.S. senator. Nick Summers's steady, mellow voice makes for an overall easy-listening audiobook experience. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
