"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything (Kindle) by Frank J. Fleming
Published by Broadside e-books on November 15, 2011
Sold by HarperCollins Publishers
Estimated length in pages: 26 pages
Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything is political satire from one end to the other. It is not subtle, but it is humorous.
If you are fond of scenes like this one in Team America: World Police, than this book is for you:
If you are easily offended by political criticism of the President, I do not recommend this book for you.
Fleming has written this book as though he is a fawning sycophant of the President - everything is twisted to be something to praise about the president. I imagined the author reading in breathless awe of the man.
Here is a sample:
"When it was time for him to finally enter politics, he headed to the place best known for learning good values in government: Chicago. There he became a community organizer, one of the most important jobs known to man. As a result of his hard work, everyone in his community was alphabetized, placed within the Dewey Decimal, and color-coded. It was the most organized community in the world."
Fleming hits all of the main events of the first two-and-a-half years of the Obama Presidency, including Obamacare, the Stimulus and the death of Osama bin Laden. He also compares the President to literally every other president and explains why is better than every one of them.
Is this sophisticated humor? No way. Was it a fun one-sitting read? Absolutely.
I rate this kindle book 4 stars out of 5 and it can be found on Amazon.com here: Obama: The Greatest President in the History of Everything.
