It's amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times bestselling author Edward Klein in his political expos├® The Amateur. Tapping into the public's growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama's toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.
"Obama was both completely inexperienced and ideologically far to the left of most Americans when he entered the White House," says Klein. "And he was so arrogant that he didn't even know what he didn't know."
Klein, who is known for getting the inside scoop on everyone from the Kennedys to the Clintons, reveals never-before-published details about the Obama administration's political inner workings, as well as Barack and Michelle's personal lives, including:
–The inordinate influence Michelle wields over Barack and her feud with a high-profile celebrity
–The real reason Rahm Emanuel left the White House (it wasn't for family reasons)
–Why Valerie Jarrett's role is closer to that of Rasputin than impartial senior advisor
–How Obama has purposefully forgotten and ignored those who put him in power, including the Kennedys and the Jewish and African American communities in Chicago
From Obama's conceited and detached demeanor, to his detrimental reliance on Michelle Obama and Valerie Jarrett's advice, to the Obamas' extravagant and out-of-touch lifestyle, The Amateur reveals a president whose ignorance and incompetence are sabotaging himself, his presidency, and America.

"I wish Mr. Klein would have been a little less dramatic and less bias in his writing of this book and just presented the results of the interveiws and let the reader draw on there own conclusions. But what he wrote is nothing I didn't already suspect from this president. What you see in this book on Obama is what we in Illinois see every day in our state government, Chicago politics on a national level. I found it to be an easy read and helped fill in some of the blanks I didn't know. I enjoyed this book very much and hope others will read it to."
