From what I’m hearing, David Limbaugh’s new book, Crimes Against Liberty is THE must-read political book of this election year. After listening to his appearance on The Mark Levin Show, tonight, it sounds like a compact version of what I, and many other bloggers in the conservative blogosphere have been frantically writing about since Obama first appeared on our radar screens. This particular customer was something we’d never seen before as a candidate for high office in this country, (and I’m not talking about the color of his skin, or his “funny name”).
I, for one, realized he was a bad egg, the minute I saw his record of opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in Illinois. Then I noticed the unnerving pattern of radical supporters and commie friends. Then, I noticed the jarring ease in which he told bold-faced lies. And finally, I noticed his narcissistic qualities, and tendency to bully until he gets his way.
After Obama was elected, he was everything we had feared he would be, and then some.
David Limbaugh sums it all up in his just released book, Crimes Against Liberty: An Indictment of President Barack Obama, which immediately shot up to #2 on the Amazon best seller list.
David Limbaugh’s appeared on Hannity, Monday, to promote the book:
Megyn Kelly interviewed Limbaugh, on Tuesday:
The Daily Caller is publishing a three part series of excerpts from the the book, part one is here.
His abundantly documented radical background soured his taste on America, compelling him to believe America’s wealth and power were “inherited,” rather than inspired by America’s god-fearing founders, who crafted a government designed to establish and maximize individual liberties—a government that has been preserved with the blood, sweat, and tears of generations of Americans.
Ironically, Obama’s domestic policy, foreign policy, and national security prescriptions are the opposite of what America needs. In transforming America to “spread the wealth around,” he is actually spreading the misery around, burying us in debt, and potentially enslaving us to our foreign creditors.
He is reaping destruction in America’s culture, its Constitution, and in every sector of the American economy (save the public sector), administering one kick in the gut after another and inflicting damage from which it will be difficult to recover.
While holding himself out as a post-partisan, post-racial president, he has exacerbated racial tensions, inflamed partisan divisiveness, engaged in acrimonious class warfare, and demonized anyone to the political right of the late Ted Kennedy.
Who is Barack Obama? To say that he has an enormous ego is an understatement. Many commentators, including psychological analysts and foreign leaders, have described him as a narcissist.
Obama’s patent self-confidence is not just posturing. It’s evident he truly believes he is special. He did, after all, pen two largely autobiographical books before he had accomplished much of anything. He once told campaign aide Patrick Gaspard, “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that . . . I’m a better political director than my political director.”
Obama’s belief that he is a gift to the world is a theme he would carry forward into his presidency. He truly believes he alone has the power to reverse the mess America has allegedly made of world affairs, and that only he can restore America’s supposedly tattered reputation.
Indeed, it often seems that for our president, American policy is not about the United States, but about him personally. At the Summit of the Americas, Obama sat through a 50-minute harangue against the United States by Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, who eviscerated the United States for a century of “terroristic” aggression in Central America. When it was Obama’s turn, he did not defend the United States, but made himself the issue: “I’m grateful that President Ortega did not blame me for things that happened when I was three months old.”
