Has any major candidate for president of the United States ever received less critical examination than Barack Obama? Who is this man, who was only elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004? How did someone with his meager record of accomplishment become the Democratic nominee for president? How did someone with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate and long-standing relationships with a former terrorist, a racist minister, and the corrupt operators of Chicago Machine politics end up as a supposed beacon of a newer, cleaner, bipartisan politics? Investigative reporter David Freddoso has the answers. Doing the legwork that the mainstream media has neglected, applying a critical eye while the media swoons before the Obama-messiah, and posing the hard questions that Obama needs to answer, Freddoso reveals a politician as calculating as any other, a far-left Democrat who goes beyond -abortion rights- to supporting de facto infanticide, whose -new politics- amount to Chicago-style hardball overlain with lofty rhetoric, and who, from his positions of power, has helped his patrons. Sober, fair, and thoroughly researched-and all the more powerful and provocative because of it-The Case Against Barack Obama removes the halo from a man less qualified, and more radical, than the mainstream media has let you know.
