Washington, DC.On May 20, 2010, Laura Ingraham received a package from an anonymous source that will change the history of the United States and the legacy of President Barack Obama. While retrieving her automobile from the underground garage at the Watergate complex (where she had just enjoyed her weekly pedicure), Ingraham discovered a manila envelope on the hood of her car. When she picked it up, a deep baritone voice called out from a nearby stairwell: “Just read it. You’ll know what to do.” The shadowy figure then disappeared into the darkness without another word.

The envelope contained copies of what appeared to be diary entries written by President Barack Obama, his family, and high-ranking administration officials. Because the “diaries” are so revealing, Ingraham felt compelled to release them to the American public and the citizens of the world.

Major media outlets love to describe the president as “no drama Obama,” but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale. Through these “diary entries,” readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama façade to the administration’s true plans to “remake America.”

In The Obama Diaries, Ingraham hilariously skewers the president and his minions. She takes aim at:

– the cynical “razzle-dazzle” marketing of Obama’s radical agenda;
– the use of the Obama “brand” and family to obscure Obama’s true aims;
– Michelle Obama’s gardening and anti-obesity initiative; and much more.

Informative and hugely entertaining, The Obama Diaries will inspire both laughter and critical thinking about the future of the nation and the man currently at the helm.

Excerpts from Laura Ingraham’s The Obama Diaries

Obama on Sarah Palin:

“Hell, doesn’t Palin have anything better to do than criticize me? Shouldn’t she be back home shooting some endangered wolf species from a helicopter?” (April 9, 2010)

Michelle on being First Lady:

“I’ll be damned if all this fabulosity is going to go to waste reading Dr. Seuss to snot-nosed kids all day.” (January 23, 2009)

Vice President Joe Biden on Michelle Obama:

“She’s kind of like a black Hillary Clinton. I mean that in a good way.”  (May 5, 2009)

Obama on his visit to the Vatican:

“If I can ingratiate myself with a few more of these red-hats, the pope thing might not be a bad follow-up to the presidency.”(July 10, 2009)

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Naomi | 1/31/2014

    " Incredibly mediocre...this book had the chance to be really satirical and funny, yet fell short with the same stuff..different day. I found myself getting incredibly bored with it and probably wouldn't have finished it unless I was the person who asked my library to order it! 2.5/5 stars (and even then, I am being generous) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jerry | 1/24/2014

    " The concept of this book is that Laura has written fictional satirical diary entries from Obama and those around him, that tie in with events surrounding the presidency and point out the hypocrisy of the administration. Following each diary entry is the facts supporting the "fictional" entry. This just didn't work for me.. a couple were humorous, but overall, just way too overdone and tends to make light of serious issues.. I did like the supporting parts, just not the diary entries. "
