you are possibly one of the most reliable posters on this board. very comforting.
Why are you talking about me again instead of the topic?

From the inside cover:

YOU WILL NEVER SEE OBAMA THE SAME WAY AGAIN
He’s been called many things: a socialist, a radical fellow traveler, a Chicago machine politician, a prince of the civil rights movement, a virtual second coming of Christ, or even a covert Muslim.

But as New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza points out in this shockingly revealing book, these labels merely slap our own preconceived notions on Barack Obama.

The real Obama is a man shaped by experiences far different from those of most Americans; he is a much stranger, more determined, and exponentially more dangerous man than you’d ever imagined. He is not motivated by the civil rights struggles of African Americans in the 1960s—those battles leave him wholly untouched. He is not motivated by the socialist or Marxist propaganda that hypnotized a whole generation of wooly–minded academics and condescending liberals—those concepts also leave him cold.

What really motivates Barack Obama is an inherited rage—an often masked, but profound rage that comes from his African father; an anticolonialist rage against Western dominance, and most especially against the wealth and power of the very nation Barack Obama now leads. It is this rage that explains the previously inexplicable, and that gives us a startling look at what might lie ahead.

In The Roots of Obama’s Rage you’ll learn: Why Obama’s economic policies are actually designed to make America poorer compared to the rest of the world Why Obama will welcome a nuclear Iran Why Obama sees America as a rogue nation—worse than North Korea The real reason Obama banished a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House and ordered NASA to praise the scientific contributions of Muslims Why Obama would like to make America’s superpower status a thing of the past

Stunning, provocative, original, and telling—no one has better diagnosed who Obama is, what he intends to do, and why he poses an existential threat to America than Dinesh D’Souza in The Roots of Obama’s Rage.

Nope. I find books like these to be annoying and just hyper-partisan.

I avoid propaganda. Why would I pay for it?

mellie, your only point in posting on this board is to spew propaganda. you don't debate, and you don't inform. you either ask ridiculous questions, or you post tripe like this. as i mentioned in another thread, you seek out that which you believe validates your viewpoint, to the exclusion of any other source material.

i have no problem with people who disagree with obama's policies, but to actually believe obama desires the downfall of america is just stupid, stupid, stupid. i thought bush was an idiot and i hated his policies, but not for one minute did i ever believe he wanted to harm america.

your silly adherence to beck's pov and the pushing of this particular book is why you can't ever be taken seriously, and why i don't post seriously to you. you're not worth the time.

Damn, and here I was thinking Obama had perpetual PMS, thanks for enlightening me to the true source of his rage.

I am not convinced Obama wants to intentionally harm America either. However, I do have an open enough mind to read everything so I can make those decisions for myself. What's so wrong with that? (Oh crap...I asked a question.) :)

you don't read everything you can. you read wallbuilders, a site whose founder believes that separation of church and state isn't constitutional.

Just take what you read with a grain of salt, this is the same fellow that claimed racism is an entirely western concept.

I have limited time, but still read more than most people by far. And yet, I cannot read everything, so I have to pick and choose. Just like every one else in fact. I would far rather read something that is not pure propaganda since then I might actually learn something.
