Praise for Conduct Unbecoming

—General Thomas G. McInerney, FOX News military analyst and bestselling co-author of Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror

Praise for Lt. Col. Patterson’s New York Times bestseller Reckless Disregard

“Humorist P. J. O’Rourke has said that putting Democrats in charge of foreign policy is like giving the car keys and a bottle of whiskey to a teenager. Buzz Patterson explains here why this is no joke.”
—Steven F. Hayward, author of The Age of Reagan and The Real Jimmy Carter

“Buzz Patterson’s words are harsh, but his conclusion is inescapable. Today’s Democrats cannot be trusted with America’s defense.”
—Jed Babbin, former deputy undersecretary of Defense and author of Inside the Asylum and co-author of Showdown

Praise for Lt. Col. Patterson’s New York Times bestseller Dereliction of Duty

“Patterson portrays a president too self-absorbed to take the time to handle many military decisions, a first family who viewed military aides as waiters, and a national security operation so weak that it forced many officers to quit.”
—Paul Bedard, White House Weekly

    Robert "Buzz" Patterson, political astronomer.

    What I expected: A breezy read that would include much of what a political junkie would already know from reading newspaper opinion columns, magazine articles and weblogs.

    What I got (unexpectedly): Educated.

    Think you know President Barack Hussein Obama?

    Think again.

    Mr. Patterson focuses his literary lens like an astronomer on distant planets - some familiar, some unheard-of - describing their heft and their paths through the skies. Next, he zooms out to reveal the interplay between these individual planets. Soon, in workman-like fashion as "Conduct Unbecoming" unfolds, a political solar system is revealed. It ain't pretty (this solar system), but it's accurate in the same fashion that the combined gravitational pull that planets exert can be calculated to describe the sun they orbit.

    What Mr. Patterson explains in this book are the planetary influences of those in varying orbits around Mr. Obama in order to reveal exactly who this man is. Well-sourced and well written, it is resource material - scientific text necessary to understand this president.

    Bad

    Sounds as if he were writing about W Bush and not Obama. I found this book very easy to put down. Would not recommend to anyone.
