I wish it were hyperbole, but "The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama" is an accurate and well-documented assessment of the 44th presidency.
"Blogs for Bush" (2004) founder Matt Margolis -- an architectural designer by trade -- and Navy veteran and blogger, Mark Noonan, packed their volume with enough evidence (1,105 cited sources) to warrant ten impeachments -- one for each chapter of evidence, from Personal Corruption, to Administration Corruption, and beyond.
I began reading thinking this would merely be a partisan trip through recent history but it is not partisan nit-picking. Much of what they uncovered is eye-opening. They list 200 specific reasons why he is the worst. One example:
121. Illegally Telling Companies to Postpone Layoffs Until after the Election
When running for re-election, it helps when bad news that could hurt your chances isn’t reported until after the voters have already spoken. Desperate to hold onto power, Obama wasn’t about to let bad news stand between him and four more years as the most powerful man on the planet, even if it meant breaking the law to do so.
A month before the presidential election, Virginia-based defense contractor Lockheed Martin announced that, in response to a White House request, they were delaying layoff notices until after the election.We joked about Chicago-style politics, but that was what we wound up with. Obama's power grab and rough style belies the personable, occasionally jovial persona he displays. Their details are great.
Nixon, Grant, and Harding were considered the most corrupt previously. But unlike Obama, they had achievements that offset their cronyism. Nixon aced foreign policy. Grant domestic policy. Harding the economy. But with Obama, you got corruption and bad foreign, domestic, and economic policy.
Other reviews include:
"I've been following the writing of Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan for years and their takedown of Barack Obama is their best work yet. If you want to know why the history books will have a dim view of Barack Obama, this is the book to read." --John Hawkins, Right Wing News.
"The best political book I have read this year." --Kevin DuJan, co-author of Shut Up!: The Bizarre War that One Public Library Waged Against the First Amendment.
"The legacy of Barack Obama will be increasingly obvious. With every terror attack, every Obamacare failure, and every economic drop, we will witness the pain he has inflicted. Margolis and Noonan can be pardoned for giving us a peek at how bad it will be." --Dick Morris, author of Power Grab: Obama's Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation and Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary.
Margolis and Noonan have held up a mirror to American politics. Americans should look at it and admit that really, that was One Big Ass Mistake America made in 2008, and repeated in 2012.
It is available in Kindle and paperback on Amazon.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is equally detailed and researched, as I have a lot of fun kicking the Washington media in the seat of its pants. Pundits were never as wrong as they were in the 2016 Republican nomination process.
They are trying to top that this fall.
Please purchase "Trump the Press" through Create Space.
The book also available in Kindle and as a paperback on Amazon.
