Overview

FROM THE NEW INTRODUCTION

Obama presents an image of a man wholly unfazed by the debt crisis. This leaves conservatives, and a growing number of independents, scratching their heads wondering how any president could so zealously obstruct the reforms necessary to save the nation. More and more Americans are wondering whether Obama is merely incompetent, or if he’s following some kind of Machiavellian scheme to deliberately damage the nation’s financial future.

. . . To assume Obama has the best interests of this nation at heart offers little comfort. For regardless of his ultimate motives, one thing is clear: he is pursuing an agenda that, unless reversed, will destroy the nation. The inescapable fact is that Obama is an incorrigible leftist ideologue who is unable to comprehend the glaring signs that his policies don’t work.

    a book for our generation.

    important description of the continuous and unabashed assault on our freedom is well elucidated in this book.

    As Americans, we will either fall into a socialism nightmare or we will find the courage to stand up and fight this constant assault on our freedom.

    Top notch

    Mr. Limbaugh's new book is a well researched and scholarly written indictment of President Obama's assault on the Constitution and the American way of life. Should be required reading in all our High Schools and Universities.

    Brainwashing with bleach.

    I try to look at all sides of things because truth is found in the nuances in between each side. Sometimes, though it's hard to find facts without the rhetoric. This is again the case. Reading this you feel the tug on your arms as it tries so hard to convince you without full fact. It practically screams "Believe only what I have to say, everything else is wrong, bad, and will destroy the whole world!" Too much! Such strong attempt at brainwashing makes me question, why are you trying so hard to convince me? Why the hardsell? Could it be because it's really not as bad as you want me to think it is? Hmmm... perhaps. But this book is unfortunately as bad as it gets. Makes me wish I could get a refund on my download.

    Very east to read, very well documented...almost 100 pages of references. I'm a news junkie but there's tons of information I never even heard of. David Limbaugh has another winner.

    Have anyone one of you read the book. You may not like it if someone has different views than yours, but that is your right. As it is the authors right to express his views.

    A Life of CRIMES

    Sometimes, I find it difficult to review timely political books. It's not because I may find the subject matter objectionable in any way; rather, it's because most often the book involves either a sitting politician whose effectiveness is still being shaped or a currently popular political ideology that may not endure beyond the next election. In either case, I try to stick with reviewing the merits of the author's main premise while ignoring some of the lesser foibles along the way. With that sole qualifier, I'm pleased to say how much I enjoyed and agreed with David Limbaugh's CRIMES AGAINST LIBERTY: AN INDICTMENT OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA. As Mark Levin's observation states from the cover (". the most effective skewering of Obama's contempt for the Constitution and our nation's foundations that I have yet read."), it's very clear that Limbaugh has done ample legwork to support his position: CRIMES includes a massive one hundred pages of notations and citations supporting the work therein. Largely, Limbaugh covers Obama in totality - with some references to his days as an Illinois politico, through his Presidential campaign, on up to the first two years of Obama's time in the Oval Office. As a result, he effectively paints Obama and the activity of his followers to be usurping power in direct contradiction to their roles in (or beyond, or absent of terms within) the U.S. Constitution. Where I honestly believe CRIMES could've benefitted from greater exploration (or, at least, an area that specifically interested me) is in the possible motivations for politicos to behave in this manner. This isn't to say that Limbaugh doesn't make credible arguments depicted Obama and his administration as perhaps power-addicted charlatans willing to tell a lie one day only to contradict themselves when it's politically expedient to do so; he does, but I guess that I, as a reader, have a hard time accepting that Obama and his companions behave this way because they consciously believe they've been given a mandate by the American people. Don't misunderstand me because Limbaugh goes to great lengths to chart Obama's stated intention to "radically transform America" into ways that defy the natural political systems in place for over two centuries. It's just that I find it hard to believe that a desire to do this must be far more firmly rooted in some unspoken or hidden motivations than, perhaps, Constitutional ignorance. What Liberals and Progressives have been doing since the 'Democrat Insurgency of 2006' gets amble coverage in CRIMES, and the book should really serve as a calling card to any politician who believes the power of the American people can be simply ignored or suppressed despite the ballot boxes, opinion polls, and sheer hard work. I'm certainly willing to concede that the elections of 2010 may serve as a bit of a roadblock for President Obama, but nothing covered here in Limbaugh's book makes me believe that the 'Radical-in-Chief' is going to serve with any other political persuasion throughout the remainder of his first term in office. And, as I said, there's ample citation to support that rather grim reality. If nothing else, coming away from CRIMES should make everyone think much more deeply about the pre-packaged efforts that goes into political speech on both sides of the aisle.

    Isn't it amazing that most of the reviewers don't appear to have read the book?

    I actually read it, and I actually found it to be well researched and documented. I was skeptical because of the relationship to Rush Limbaugh but I didn't find the level of hyperbole that I expected to find because of the family relationship. It comes down to research...even Obama will find it hard to withstand the evidence of his own words. Wish "reviewers" would stop using this forum to pitch their political bias.

    anonymous?

    I did not read the book, but that doesn't seem to have prevented some of the anonymous reviewers to post their negative reviews.
    Its funny how all the negative reviews are anonymous and most resort to name calling instead of any sort of explanations as to why they think it belongs in a trash can. Being that it is an 'anti-Obama' book written by a conservative, of course it will be filled with conservative or right-wing ideas and rhetoric. Just as a book written by a left-wing or liberal about Bush will be filled with the same kind of material or rhetoric, just with the left side viewpoint.
    I highly doubt the majority of those commenting negatively even read the book given that they would have to give their money to that which they hate so vehemently. Am I going to read the book? I doubt it because I have other more important things to spend my money on. My main point is that I don't think its fair to post an unworthy, short, name calling review that skews the rating system because you hate something so much. I'm amazed at how divisive this country has become over the years. Its scary.
    Since I didn't read the book but I have to rate it for the review, I am giving it a middle of the road 3 stars.

    Limbaugh Doesn't Like Obama?!?!?!

    So Rush Limbaugh's brother wrote an anti-obama book, and all of the right-wing loonies will buy it. Not me. I live in reality, not some crazy, alternate dimension where Sara Palin could be talked about as a possible candidate for President. I don't believe that Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, and the others believe Obama is a socialist, communist, or Muslim. Their only concern is that their audience believe it...as they are forking over their hard-earned money. Save your money. If you want to read fiction, buy Jonathan Franzen's new novel. I'll give this one star only because I have to give it a rating.

    Well Researched

    Limbaugh has done a fine job of penning a well researched and very readable book about the man who is currently residing in the White House. He covers it all, from Obama's evident narcissism to his insolent treatment of any American who dares to disagree with him. Every action of Obama's that is written about by Limbaugh is well documented, with 98 pages of footnotes, making it possible for the reader to examine those sources for herself. Crimes Against Liberty is a must-read for anyone who cares about freedom and who wishes to keep The United States of America the "land of the free and the home of the brave."
