Great weekend read! Before this Tuesday’s State of the Union (blah, blah, blah*), grab a refresher course in the world according to Barack Obama, as he enters the sixth year of his presidency. Teri O’Brien ( just released today her e-book, The ABCs of Barack Obama: Understanding God’s Greatest Gift to America. She puts clearly into words what (most of) America has been thinking, and for that matter saying under its breath, for (most of) the last five years. Why oh why did we ever pay attention to this carpetbagger Chicagoan (and black, for that matter) when his whole life and agenda is a lie?

In 26 chapters (that would be the ABCs for those readers from Rio Linda), Teri O’Brien summarizes the scandals, biographical questions, the miss-steps and the policy disasters that we have absorbed from this president of the United States. The first Pinocchio is for education policy: how about his own daughters attending Sidwell Friends while he made sure poor minority kids in D.C. could no longer get a fair chance via the voucher program. That was all about the unions, not the kids; it was an election year, and he needed the union vote.

I especially liked the P is for Phony chapter. Didn’t we hear ad nauseum that targeting Tea Party groups, the death of four Americans in Benghazi, the Fast and Furious gun running debacle, and Solyndra green energy scheme were phony scandals? I would remind the prez that ObamaCare is turning out to be the real scandal of his presidency.

Throughout this bright and readable e-book, Teri O’Brien manages to weave together the components of the case against this ultimate “pol.” It’s a fabric of lying and corruption that would make, well, Chicagoan Saul Alinsky proud.
