About the Author
Think you know the real Barack Obama? You don’t—
not until you’ve read The Amateur.
In this stunning exposé, bestselling author Edward
Klein—a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, former
foreign editor of Newsweek, and former editor-in-
chief of the New York Times Magazine—pulls back
the curtain on one of the most secretive White
Houses in history. He reveals a callow, thin-skinned,
arrogant president with messianic dreams of
grandeur supported by a cast of true-believers, all of
them united by leftist politics and an amateurish
understanding of executive leadership.
In The Amateur you’ll discover:
- Why the so-called “centrist” Obama is actually
in revolt against the values of the society he
was elected to lead.
- Why Bill Clinton loathes Barack Obama and
tried to get Hillary to run against him in 2012.
- The spiteful rivalry between Michelle Obama
and Oprah Winfrey.
- How Obama split the Kennedy family.
- How Obama has taken more of a personal role
in making foreign policy than any president
since Richard Nixon—with disastrous results.
- How Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett are
the real powers behind the White House
The Amateur is a reporter’s book, buttressed by
nearly 200 interviews, many of them with the
insiders who know Obama best. The result is the
most important political book of the year. You will
never look at Barack Obama the same way again.
A devastating indictment of the lethal combination of
incompetence and radicalism that has made Barack
Hussein Obama into one of the worst presidents in
American history.”*****__Norman Podhoretz.
The "In the Tank for Obama" news media may
very well do all it can to discredit the author and this
book. The author interviewed in person and tape
recorded many of those interviewed who elected to
share insider information regarding the Obama
husband and wife, within and outside the White
Those interviewed include personal friends of the
Obamas, such as the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and
friends and associates of Bill and Hillary Clinton and
Ophra Winfrey among others.
Attention is directed to Valerie Jerrett, the
Obama inner circle advisor from Chicago and White
House "gate keeper" for the Obamas, who did her
best to convince Obama not to pursue Osama Bin
Laden, only to be overruled by Leon Penetta.
The author only included information that was
verifiable; therefore, Mr. Klein's book is not a gossip
columnist's accounting of a he said-she said venue.
The "real" Obama picture is alarming and serves to
frame the President of the United States as clearly
out of his comfort zone insofar as having no
leadership skills or experience. No administrative
experience, no governing experience, and no
international experience; and, therefore, makes the
valid argument that President Barack Obama is ill-
equipped and incapable of assuming the tasks of
being Commander-in-Chief of the US military and
leader of the most important free nation in the world.
Barack Obama is the personification of the Peter
Principle, one who rises to his own level of
incompetence. A must read for all who want
information the liberal news papers and cable news
organizations will not tell you and may purposely
dismiss by not drawing attention to the book and its
documented evidence. __ anonymous.
This book is the telling of how the real Obama
snaked his way to the Presidency by manipulating
every person he ever used to serve his own self-
aggrandizement. We owe Mr. Klein our respect and
gratitude. The Amateur should be required reading
for every liberal college student, voter, and lover of
America, its values, and its courage to admit that it
sometimes elects the wrong man. The sad proof is in
this book.***** __ j. Steward.
