Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything [NOOK Book]

Overview

It's hard to remember the dark days before 2008. It was a time of hatred, racism, violence, obese children, war, untaxed rich people, and incandescent light bulbs -- perhaps the worst days we had ever seen. And at the heart of it all was a thuggish, thoughtless man, George W. Bush, who lashed out angrily at whatever he didn't understand -- and he understood so very little. Then there was that laugh of his -- that horrible snicker that mocked everything intelligent and nuanced. ...

Overview

It's hard to remember the dark days before 2008. It was a time of hatred, racism, violence, obese children, war, untaxed rich people, and incandescent light bulbs -- perhaps the worst days we had ever seen. And at the heart of it all was a thuggish, thoughtless man, George W. Bush, who lashed out angrily at whatever he didn't understand -- and he understood so very little. Then there was that laugh of his -- that horrible snicker that mocked everything intelligent and nuanced. Also, he looked like a chimp.

It seemed like the end for the United States of America. We would crumble in the hands of vicious, superstitious dimwits determined to hunt "ter'ists" or other figments of Bush's rotten mind. There was nothing left to do but head to Whole Foods to prepare our organic, sustainable, fair-trade last meal as the country ended around us. Despair had overtaken us, and we wondered aloud whether we could ever feel hope again.

And then a man emerged who firmly answered, "Yes we can!"

Oh, but Barack Obama was no mere man. He was a paragon of intelligence and civilized society. A savior to the world's depressed. A lightbringer. A genius thinking thoughts the common man could never hope to comprehend. And his words -- his beautiful words read from crystal panes -- reached down to our souls and told us all would be well. With the simple act of casting a ballot for Barack Obama, we could make the world an immeasurably better place -- a world of peace, of love, of understanding, of unicorns, of rainbows, of expanded entitlements. This was his promise. And now, having had him as president for more than two years, we can say without reservation that he has delivered all his promises and more and is the best president this country -- or any country -- has ever had or could even imagine to have.

    Hilarious

    The only thing that gives me pause about this ovrt-the-top, mocking parody is that I think I have met Obama supporters who would think this book was serious...

    Very Predictable, Not at all Clever

    I love this kind of stuff, but this one fails miserably. Don't waste your time, and if they start charging for it, don't waste your money.

    This author just doesn't possess the deft touch required to do humor of this kind well. His efforts at being funny fall flat because he is so predictable. While hyperbole can be used to create good humor, this isn't a successful example of it. You might want to take a glance while it's free out of sheer curiosity. If they ever decide to start charging something for it, though, you'll definitely be able to find better uses for your money.

    Left me speechless

    Frank is to satire what Shakespeare is to plays. Frank is to political poking as Einstein was to theoretical physics. Frank is to....you get the picture now buy the book.

    Short and stupid

    It has to be short for the typical neo-con fascist can only follow one line of propaganda at a time.
    By the way, it seems to be the audiance for which this book was intended did not catch on to the satire, not the other way around. Read the reviews.
    Liberals are thinkers, neo-cons are dumb followers---try not to forget this simple fact when you try ever unsuccessfully to put us down!
    This attempt at satire was an epic failure.

    A lame attempt at humor.

    I was looking forward to some good satire but instead got juvinile sarcasm oozing with angry hatred. It's just not funny or clever.

    The only problem is we have not yet seen the end of this preside

    The only problem is we have not yet seen the end of this presidency.  There is so much more evil taxation, Anti-American treachery yet for him to accomplish.
    There are more third world dictators for him to bow to.  While working Americans still have assets he will continue to drain them, and  send their wealth to those that hate US.

    Funny, irreverent, clever treatise

    Closer in length to a pamphlet than a book, this entertaining missive tickles the part of the funny bone that responds to "It's funny, because the New York Times thinks it's true." Actually, I'm not sure this isn't an official style manual followed by the Times' writers when covering Obama.
