Overview

The Obamas by Jodi Kantor

When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he also won a long-running debate with his wife Michelle. Contrary to her fears, politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible.

Then they moved in.

In the Obamas, Jodi Kantor takes us deep inside the White House as they try to grapple with their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and figure out what it means to be the first black President and First Lady. Filled with riveting detail and insight into their partnership, emotions and personalities, and written with a keen eye for the ironies of public life, THE OBAMAS is an intimate portrait that will surprise even readers who thought they knew the President and First Lady.

really an interesting look at the Obama's. I'm a republican, and there are some things about our president that I find a bit unsavory, in regards to his political agendas, but this book was a decent read. I recommend it.

Before you blast one of America's greatest assets, try reading a little more about American Politics, from various publications, and perhaps you may finally grasp that one man who has been in office for a brief time did not tank this country. What saddens me is that the very people President Obama is trying to help, are often the ones who have allowed themselves to be easily influenced by the media, etc. to believe he is the enemy. Research political issues yourself, using various sources, and you just may become enlightened.

I have yet to finish this book, yet as I look at some of the reviews I wonder what anyone's personal belief and observation on the presidency have ANYTHING to do with this book?? Agree or don't agree with how he is running the country, but that doesn't reflect on the book itself. Educate yourself about all the politital parties and then cast your vote accordingly!

Good read, the first family has a right to as much privcacy as possible, especially with all the hate regarding the president, first lady, and even their daughters, i think the president has done a remarkable job considering the negitive and hatefull enviornment in which he is sourrounded by, these other clowns who want to be president think its so easy, like waving a magic wand and poof our countrys problems are gone, jobs galore, families who have lost their homes will all own homes again, etc, etc give president obama a break at least he is trying i am glad i read this book, because it gives a little insight as to what the president is up against I think the author did a good job in her research and writing this book
