Edward Klein Was On Hannity On The Drive Home

I had Hannity on Sirius XM while driving home today, and Klein was on, pushing The Amateur.

Typically, these tell-all books don’t do much for me. Racey tales of he-said-she-said that don’t amount to much. In the segment I heard, though, Klein related to having 3.5 hours of taped Jeremiah Wright interview. Purportedly, Wright’s acquaintance with the underside of the bus in 2008 was not a happy one. The references to BHO’s spiritual development could prove highly explosive in bitter, cling-on circles. That Billy Jeff called Barack an amateur, the source of the title for the book, is less interesting. What else is WJC going to do? Clinton provides a kind of political Seinfeldian comedy of manners, where the main interest is in the tension between supporting the sitting Democrat President on the

right hand, while reaching around to stab repeatedly with the left.

Over at The Tatler, Stephen Kruiser  picks up on British reporting on another angle in Klein’s book: the Oprah/Michelle tension.

Still, the fact remains that [BHO] was propelled to a landslide win by little more than a cult of celebrity that Oprah and the MSM conferred upon him. If you disagree I will gladly wait to hear any recitation of POTUS-worthy accomplishments he had prior to 2008 you can point out.

It looks like Doug Ross is maintaing a list, which will have to do until Hot Air gets a master Obamaturism list published.

The Obama Administration is morphing into some vast, reptilian beast in a Sword & Sorcery flick which has taken enough damage from the attacking characters to be either royally pissed or mortally wounded. Said beast is entering into a dangerous ‘thrash mode’, where some adventurers are going to get laid out. Whether or not the beast is stricken beyond recovery remains to be seen; Valerie Jarrett is rumored to be a 17th level anti-Cleric with Cthulhu on speed dial. Don’t think this book by Klein spells the end.

Update: Nice Deb has the audio.

    Is Jarrett Barack Obama’s protective mother-figure that he never had growing up? Would that explain her seemingly absolute control via deference to her on Obama policy?

    Zombie Dr. Freud, please pick up the white courtesy phone.

    No, she’s corruptible enough to be utterly loyal to #OccupyResoluteDesk.

    Chris, we’re of the same mind on this book. It reminds me of “Game Change”, and how the left just ate it up as wrong as it was – all it did was reinforce their biases. I’m suspicious this tome merely reinforces ours. I want to believe; that’s why I refuse to take it at face value.

    I want to hear the tapes, too.

    How high does it peg my geek-meter that I recognize the gaming analogy he used. Though technically, there’s no such thing as an ‘anti-cleric.’ Just an evil cleric that uses negative energy magic to cause harm to the living. 😛

     You get it backwards.  Obama is loyal to Jarrett; she bought and paid for him outright when he was a State senator

    Are you suggesting between the two of them she’s the brains?
