Obama Confidential: Strange, Odd, and Bizarre Letters to the 44th President
Get ready for some laughs as you read the NEW humor book "OBAMA CONFIDENTIAL: Strange, Odd & Bizarre Letters to the 44th President"
This outrageous collection of 60 fake "letters" to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama offers a startling inside look at what’s really on the minds of Americans today.
LETTERS FROM BILL CLINTON, STEVEN SPIELBERG, DENNIS RODMAN–From celebrities as diverse as Warren Buffett, Bill Clinton, and Steven Spielberg, to anonymous everyday citizens like the minimum-wage waitress in Oklahoma and a dry cleaner named Al Kayda in Wisconsin, Obama hears it, and gets it, from everyone.
WHAT'S ON THEIR MIND? WELL, JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING–And when you’re the president, absolutely no subject is off-limits. An ex-student in Illinois is drowning in an ocean of debt; a harried housewife in Wyoming has dubious ideas about how to save hard-earned pennies; while a gun owner in Tennessee vigorously defends his right to bear arms.
AN AMUSING SNAPSHOT OF AMERICA IN THE 21ST CENTURY–Even a Harvard classmate re-appears, with a not-so-subtle demand for money. Obama, who’s obviously a very busy man, sometimes answers with a brief innocuous letter of his own. Echoing another classic of U.S. history, Alexis de Tocqueville’s "Democracy In America", "Obama Confidential" offers a vivid, consistently amusing snapshot of America in the second decade of the 21st century, with hilarious results.
