Culture of Corruption by Michelle Malkin

If you're a fan of President Obama, you'll hate this book before opening it. If you are not a fan, you will love it.

Michelle Malkin is not a fan of President Obama and his administration. That is why she jumped into the cash cow of Obama-bashing-book-writing. Her contribution is Culture of Corruption.

"The era of hope and change is dead...and it only took six months in office to kill it." While this may be a true statement (I lost my job during President Obama's economic recovery), Malkin's book is full of the kind of smearing we tired from in politics.

After pointing out the troubles President Obama had with his cabinet nominees, she spends the rest of the book finding how many ways she can write the word, "Cronies". (About every other paragraph)

This seems fitting as the subtitle is "Obama and his team of tax cheats, crooks, and cronies" but beating the same drum for 289 pages.

A bright spot for this book is the number of notes. It would do the advocates and complainers good to do the research for themselves before they commit to vicious response.

Following the opening chapter detailing the problems President Obama had nominating his cabinet, we read a thrashing towards his wife Michelle, anger against his Vice President, and his Cabinet members and their fellow Czars.

The information given about the Czars was particularly interesting. Wherever you fall on the political spectrum, if you can skip past the overuse of the words, "cronies" and "nepotism", it might do you some intellectual good to jump in on the research Malkin has tried to do.
