Here’s my review of the book for Amazon:
This book started out bad, recycling a long-debunked chain email from 2008 that Barack Obama had raised money for a Kenyan politician named Raila Odinga. If the introductory issue in a book is bunk, you can imagine the quality of what follows, and you would be right.
What follows is a huge compendium of statements by people who didn’t do background checks on Barack Obama. Well, nobody in the government does background checks on any presidential candidates. In this country the constitutionally protected free press digs for dirt. Opposition candidates dig for dirt. The voters decide whether a candidate has been sufficiently vetted to warrant their votes. What could be more "vetting" than the crucible of a US presidential election?
After the election, the US Constitution provides that the Congress upon the objection of just two members (one from the House and one from the Senate) must take up the matter of eligibility, and what steps are taken should the President fail to qualify. That’s never happened because the election process itself always works.
In fact, I think the background of Barack Obama has been investigated more than any other president in US history. What other president released a birth certificate before the election? Which other president has his birth certificate online along with his 6-year-old elementary school registration, and his mother’s passport application? Do you know the social-security number of any living president or have a copy of his Selective Service System registration? You do for Obama.
In fact the Secretary of State of Arizona, Ken Bennett, did decide to vet Obama this time around and demanded an official state-sealed verification of the facts of Obama’s birth from the State of Hawaii, which he received, and the following statement resides on the Arizona Secretary of State’s web site today:
"As Arizona’s chief elections officer, I have the responsibility to certify the ballot to the state’s 15 counties. At the request of numerous constituents, I merely asked Hawaiian officials to verify the information contained within President Obama’s original birth certificate. They have complied with the request and I consider the matter closed."
So this book is nonsense, total nonsense. Its only redeeming characteristic was the price: free.
Some who oppose Barack Obama live in a paranoid fantasy world of Marxist Muslim America-hating usurpers–a world of their own making. Folks who find delusional thinking interesting might like this book. I consider it an outrage.
