Book Overview

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) On May 20, 2010, Laura Ingraham received a package from an anonymous source that will change the history of the United States and the legacy of President Barack Obama. While retrieving her automobile from the underground garage at the Watergate complex (where she had just enjoyed her weekly pedicure), Ingraham discovered a manila envelope on the hood of her car. When she picked it up, a deep baritone voice called out from a nearby...

Funny and effective

On page 313 the author quotes from Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals": "Ridicule is almost impossible to counterattack...". Laura Ingraham applies this Alinsky rule in a creative and entertaining way. As you read Ms Ingraham's amusing musings, you have to wonder how accurate they may actually be. But apparently she scored a direct hit with her diary entries about the First Lady in private always having a hamburger in her mouth thus portraying her as hypocrite on obesity, because today's media is reporting (based on observation) that Ms Obama may have gained about 30 pounds.

Obama Diaries

I have read the Obama diaries and find this work by Laura Ingraham very eye opening and entertaining at the same time. She uses the very words used by the Obama's and others in his administration to show the reader what they beleive about the people of the United States, and the very documents that the nation was founded upon. If you have ever listened to Laura on the radio then you know how she entertains and informs and The Obama Diaries is Laura at her best. I seldom pay full price for books but did for this and it was worth every penny. Buy it read it and enjoy it it is hard to put down once you begin reading.

Witty, informative, entertaining

Laura Ingraham has pulled back the curtains on No Drama Obama to reveal that there is plenty of drama being stage-crafted 24/7 by the current administration. Satire, in the form of fictional diary entries, purportedly written by key players in the Obama administration, is a relatively small part of this book. The narrative portions cover events that actually happened, hence the NON-FICTION designation. The satirical diary entries are hilarious and believable because they flow naturally from the REAL words and actions of all the key players. It's entirely plausible that those who are currently running our country actually think this way. Ms. Ingraham presents many cogent points in this book RE: the Obama presidency. The media marketing of Obama began with what she terms the Razzle Dazzle effect -- the glitzy packaging that was likely the main reason behind his election. Laura Ingraham peels back the layers behind the Razzle Dazzle to reveal the personalities behind the hype. For example, guess who might have Narcissistic Personality Disorder? The compelling revelations begin on page 264. On page 253, there is a description of the night Obama received the Democratic nomination for the presidency. His soaring rhetoric included the remarks, " . . . This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." Obama actively cultivated this messianic imagery throughout his presidential campaign. Ask yourself what type of person would think that his political candidacy had any kind of effect on the movement of the oceans or the "healing" of the planet? This is alarming. The non-fiction narratives reveal that every action of the Obamas has been choreographed for maximum political effect. For example, the First Lady's vegetable garden was planted to grow much more than just veggies. This little vegetable patch launched the "Green Razzle Dazzle." Seeds were planted here to establish Michelle as a policy advocate for healthier living. Next came her anti-obesity campaign for America's children. Michelle is not only the gardener-in-chief, she has promoted herself as an authority on our health and nutrition. What fertile ground for the germination of - OBAMACARE! Think the FLOTUS likes REAL gardening? Go behind the scenes and read about the heavy-lifting efforts by National Park Service employees to plant, maintain and keep the vegetables in this garden viable for all the photo-ops. This book is a journey well beyond the Razzle Dazzle fluff created by the White House handlers of the President and First Lady. Laura Ingraham has courageously connected the dots surrounding the personality cult of Obama. The narratives collected and arranged in this one book are like pieces of a puzzle. The puzzle, even with some pieces missing or concealed on purpose, presents a disturbing picture of the leader of the free world and his minions. The author offers concrete suggestions that any citize

A totally NON racist review

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I think that Laura could be a TV comedy writer. It was that entertaining. I especially liked her explanations after each page of the 'diary' How she could put into words, the undercurrent of irritability, condescension and disdane that her subjects have for the common folks of America is spot on. She is extremely perceptive and this is a great, entertaining read!

Coincidence?

I think I detect a pattern here. Liberals review a conservative book immediately, and a few days later, conservatives start to review it, with exactly opposite opinions. Obviously, liberals review a book in the same manner as their Washington counterparts pass legislation...without reading it.
