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.
Herein Edward Klein tells us how the MainStream Media
(MSM) turned the Racist MOSLUM 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 House.

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

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

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 poof is in
this book.***** __  j. Steward.
