Obama Nation is The New York Times bestselling book by Dr Jerome Corsi in which the author analyzes the life and career of Barack Obama.
Its controversial and the timing may lead one to conclude that the author is trying to latch onto Obama mania that has gripped the nation and the world, which I think is safe to add after Obama’s rock star like reception in Europe.
Since Fox is featuring the book on Hannity and Colmes, there are no surprises as to what kind of audience it is going to pander to and appeal.
From what initial reports I have seen and read, the book falls flat on its claims. In fact one of the first accusation to be made in the book pertains to Obama’s drug use.
Basically the author is trying to say that Obama was not forthcoming on this subject, but the facts are old news and everybody who has investigate this a bit knows Obama confessed to “getting high” and said he stopped using it when he joined Columbia as an undergraduate and moved to New York.
The book clearly has an agenda to push against Obama, Democrats, and Liberals (though I think liberals sometimes push it too far themselves) by all means possible and at times if there is not much evidence available to backup the allegations, then – to hell with the truth – isÂ kind of attitude displayed throughout in the book.
However, one thing Obama camp should keep in mind is that this is the same author who wrote about John Kerry’s Swiftboat issue that created a huge ruckus in the last elections.
Obama camp would do well to not let their gaurd down against these kind of tactics.
