Obama’s Private Nickname Revealed…
June 14, 2012
My wife and I attended a reception last week honoring Edward Klein, the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, "The Amateur." The veteran journalist interviewed more than 200 insiders in the White House to find out what kind of man President Barack Obama really is.
Klein, an insider himself as former editor-in-chief of The New York Times magazine, does not suggest by the title of his book that Obama is an amateur when it comes to running for office. As a candidate, he’s a professional and will not be beaten easily in November.
No, by "amateur," Klein means how poorly Obama manages the office of the most powerful position in the world. Obama is a terrible and inexperienced manager, Klein wrote. Obama has blundered repeatedly in foreign and domestic policy. Klein goes into numerous examples in the book.
One of the best parts of the book for me was Obama’s private meeting with eight eminent American historians, including Robert Caro, David Brinkley, Garry Wills and H.W. Brands. According to an insider in the meeting, Obama wants to go down in history as a revolutionary president — the man who transformed America into a European democratic-socialist state! ObamaCare was just the beginning… Wait until you see what he has in store of us in the next four years. If Congress doesn’t go along, he will use executive orders. It’s scary.
Obama doesn’t see himself so much as Lyndon Johnson (LBJ), Ronald Reagan, or even Franklin Roosevelt (FDR), but as a Woodrow Wilson, as "little short of messianic." In fact, David Axelrod privately calls Obama by the nickname "Black Jesus."
