"The world Obama envisions is one in which the central government confiscates its citizens' money and transfers it to his political comrades."
"Nothing Obama does, not one single policy or legislative initiative, has anything to do with the will of the people or what might benefit the people."
"Barack Obama doesn't want you to succeed in your job or your small business. He wants to see you on your knees before him."The problem I have with this book, and with Savage's radio show, is not that he doesn't have a basis for everything he says. To the contrary, the man has a Ph.D.! Even though his degree's in another field, he thoroughly researches his subjects and coherently defends his arguments, and does so in a frequently entertaining way. The problem is that he does so with vitriol, biting sarcasm, and a vicious sneer. Even though I almost completely agree with everything Savage says, I am frustrated by his tone.
Yes, Obama can hardly help being a socialist, given his intellectual heritage. Yes, he has long associated himself with unsavory characters who have corrupted him intellectually, spiritually, and politically. His ideas and policies are destructive to American, to freedom, and to financial prosperity. Savage describes and documents all of this, but he comes across as a blowhard because of his rhetoric. I'm reminded of a sweaty, screaming, pulpit pounding preacher. The gospel he preaches may be 100% theologically and biblically accurate, but I sure don't want to listen to him.
Even though his style and tone drove me nuts, there's plenty of good information here. Like I said, I was nodding in agreement the whole time I read. I'm with Savage: I can't wait until the cancer living in the White House is returned to private life. If you're looking for more reasons to hate Obama, or justification for reasons to hate him, you'll find it here. If you're looking for balanced, reasonable policy analysis of the Obama administration, well, you'd probably be better off looking elsewhere.
