It's amateur hour at the White House. So says "New York Times" bestselling author Edward Klein in his new political expose "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 have run our nation and his presidency off the rails. ""Obama was both completely inexperienced and ideologically far to the left of 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 and about 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 Emmanuel 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 Obama's problems with American Jews How Obama has purposefully forgotten and ignored those that 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 blatant ignorance and incompetence is sabotaging himself, his presidency, and America.

In The Amateur (2012) author Edward Klein focuses on the inexperience and ineptness of Barack Obama. The author points out that Barack Obama simply lacks the temperament to be president. As I was listening to this book in my car, the following words describing Barack Obama came to mind: detached, aloof, arrogant, haughty, naive, narcissistic, and cold. The book also explains the influence of Pastor Jeremiah Wright and Valerie Jarrett over Barack Obama. Of course, supporters of Barack Obama will dismiss this book as simply another tirade against the president. On the other hand, detractors will have ample ammunition to prove that Obama's lack of experience has created both domestic and foreign policy disasters. Now, with ever increasing health care costs, stagnant wages, and instability in the Middle East, it is safe to say that many of the points brought up in The Amateur have come to fruition.
