Highly regarded for his eloquent and inspiring rhetoric, Obama is often compared to Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. However, Leeman s study shows that Obama s teleological philosophy and discourse more closely resembles Ronald Reagan s rhetoric."

An original and engaging account of the Obama years from a group of leading political historians Barack Obama's election as the first African American president seemed to usher in a new era, and he took office in 2009 with great expectations. But by his second term, Republicans controlled Congress, and, after the 2016 presidential election, Obama's legacy and the health of the Democratic Party itself appeared in doubt. In The Presidency of Barack Obama, Julian Zelizer gathers leading American historians to put President Obama and his administration into political and historical context. These writers offer strikingly original assessments of the big issues that shaped the Obama years, including the conservative backlash, race, the financial crisis, health care, crime, drugs, counterterrorism, Iraq and Afghanistan, the environment, immigration, education, gay rights, and urban policy. Together, these essays suggest that Obama's central paradox is that, despite effective policymaking, he failed to receive credit for his many achievements and wasn't a party builder. Provocatively, they ask why Obama didn't unite Democrats and progressive activists to fight the conservative counter-tide as it grew stronger. Engaging and deeply informed, The Presidency of Barack Obama is a must-read for anyone who wants to better understand Obama and the uncertain aftermath of his presidency. Contributors include Sarah Coleman, Jacob Dlamini, Gary Gerstle, Risa Goluboff, Meg Jacobs, Peniel Joseph, Michael Kazin, Matthew Lassiter, Kathryn Olmsted, Eric Rauchway, Richard Schragger, Paul Starr, Timothy Stewart-Winter, Thomas Sugrue, Jeremi Suri, Julian Zelizer, and Jonathan Zimmerman.

The problems with President Barack Obama have nothing to do with the color of his skin. The problems are with his policies, which belittle the United States and inflate the values of other countries. We must remember that we, as Americans, are the leaders of the free world. President Barack Obama was elected president of the US because he inspired the nation to believe in Hope. But his false promises have in fact created the worst racism we have seen in decadesâ€'he is running the government in a Chicago gangland style that discredits all Americans, and he is pushing a government takeover of individual liberties that will destroy the very best of America. Robert Michener's convicting book, Barack Obama: Hope Destroyed, is dedicated to pointing out the wrongs that President Barack Obama is perpetuating on the American people while presenting reasonable solutions to each of those problems. Through indicting language and a clear cut look at facts and possibilities, Barack Obama: Hope Destroyed will put into words what many Americans feel about the direction of the present government under President Barack Obama.
