Obama's Little Blue Book: Chairman Mao Little Red Book, Vol. II

Hard to believe, sickening and scary but nevertheless true:



Volume I:




Volume II:




Pocket Obama (paperback, Amazon.com)
According to the editors:
Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama's speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency. Includes themes of democracy, politics, war, terrorism, race, community, jurisprudence, faith, personal responsibility, national identity, and above all, his hoped-for vision of a new America. This book is truly a primer for readers who want to examine the substance of his thought and reflect on the next great chapter in the American story. It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times

Update:

Just left the following customer review on Amazon.com:

"The Government should make this book mandatory reading in schools

Our Dear Leader brilliance is masterfully condensed in this little blue book. Consider it as a portable fountain of wisdom from which every American should quench his thirst for hope and change every day (and if some refuse to do it, they should be forced).
Long live Obama, great Father of our New Nation, our glorious President for life! "


Go ahead and have fun, post your own reviews!

The Editor's Comment I read on Amazon in an excerpt from the book is even worse. See especially the second paragraph:

"It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times. Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, it is comprised of quotations borrowed from the President's speeches and writings. His guiding principles will enlighten the minds of the people and prepare the way for a new era of change.
In order to master the President's ideology, it is essential to study many of the basic concepts over and over again and it is best to memorize important statements and apply them repeatedly. Learn earnestly and diligently.
Together we can bring about the next great chapter in the American story."

Also, if you go to Amazon and click on the comments, you'll see that "Dear Leader" is no longer fiction, it's fact.

That has got to be some sort of joke. (Please...)

I went to the so-called History Company that is selling the book on Amazon - and it is online at the site. However, I sent an email to the company via the 'contact us' and it came back to me. Not sure if that means a lot of people send emails and overwhelmed the server, or what. Could this be just an overzealous follower? Its so out there.....

They didn't want to make it a big book as that would of worn out the lips of his followers in all 57 states.

It's a clever joke. The images that accompany it include a couple of Mao's red book. That is the give away.

Post our own reviews. Great idea! I might just do that as I'm registered to post reviews at Amazon.

The cult of Obama continues its march. We live in an inverted world now.

You can read a couple of the pages on Amazon by clicking on the little book. Inanity.
