    Have you Read Dreams From My Father By Barack Obama?

    I have never heard anyone on this forum, other than myself admit to having read Obama's book on his earlier life pre-Presidency.

    So have you actually read it cover to cover? Not just what you've heard about it on Fox News blurbs?

    EDIT: For some reason this didn't take me to the poll section...

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    I've only read Barak's racist and supremacist quotes from it.

    I've also not read Hillary's "It takes a Village."

    All are not the same as "Profiles in Courage."

    I have not read any of his or his wife's literature. I'm not a big biography guy anyway.

    I think the vast majority of folks don't read it. They buy it so that they can have it be seen on their bookshelves.

    Why would I want to read something written by an arrogant pathological liar? Obama's been caught lying more times than I can count.

    I think someone on this forum struggled to count six lies, the biggest lie being that you get to keep your health insurance (which was actually the doing of the health insurance companies trying to meet the new minimum standards for coverage).

    That's hardly pathological, especially when compared to previous presidents.

    "Lean: Very Liberal". I shouldn't begin a debate with you. I don't like extremists on either side. You guys just defend your politician to the death, no matter how horrible they are. You ignore the bad. Best of luck on your future endeavors though.

    Why are you here if you don't want to debate people with opposing opinions? By the way, Obama is a moderate centrist, like you claim to be. If you think he's a liberal extremists, you're nowhere near a moderate.

    I've read some of the linguistic analyses of Dreams From My Father.
