    I ve now finished this book, which I ve been reviewing a chapter at a time Before starting, I was concerned that it might lower my opinion of him Many people have been rather dismissive, and perhaps that s why I didn t read it earlier In fact, it has had the opposite effect It s well thought out and convincing, and I respect himThe one major criticism I have is that it s...

    It is a good thing that these days, if a Democratic candidate wants to continue war and occupation in Iraq, he has to call it phased redeployment a la Obama, rather than 20,000troops, a la Kerry People are fed up with the old policies, and they re looking towards candidates who talk left I think that s a sign of a real shift among regular people, and we shouldn t dismiss anyone who wants to see real change but still has hopes in the Democratic Party This is true even if we already k It is a good thing that these days, if a Democratic candidate wants to continue war and occupation in Iraq, he has to call it phased redeployment a la Obama, rather than 20,000troops, a la Kerry People are fed up with the old policies, and they re looking towards candidates who talk left I think that s a sign of a real shift among regular people, and we shouldn t dismiss anyone who wants to see real change but still has hopes in the Democratic Party This is true even if we already know through bitter experience that a goal of the Democrats is to lower hopes and e...

    I found the first couple of chapters of this book a bit murky, due to my ignorance of American political life and methods, but after that I found it fascinating I loved the way that Obama can communicate at all levels This book could so easily have been a dry and dusty analysis of his political life and experiences, but instead it was an intensely human and open discussion of the issues that matter to him I liked him before I read the book, and I liked him evenafterwards.I was particula I found the first couple of chapters of this book a bit murky, due to my ignorance of American political life and methods, but after that I found it fascinating I loved the way that Obama can communicate at all levels This book could so easily have been a dry and dusty analysis of his political life and experiences, but instead it was an intensely human and open discussion of the issues that matter to him I liked him before I read the book, and I liked him evenafterwards.I was particularly interested in what he had to say about the plight of blue collar workers in the US whose jobs appear to be squeezed from all angles, and what he had to say about the standards of living for everyone As has been noted elsewhere, life does not seem to be getting easier, except for the very wealthy.The one chapter I found strange was the one on faith It would be inconceivable for a British politician to write an autobiography and include any sort of discussion about his or h...

    I used to think that a liberal was simply someone whose background and education was deficient of the facts needed to understand the full ramifications of their left leaning policies For example, in a debate I once heard Maxine Waters D CA incredulously ask Why not when told that the government can t afford free healthcare, free college, free daycare, etc Because apart from the land of fairies and puppy dog tails where the Congresswoman, if not grew up, at least spent most of her summers I used to think that a liberal was simply someone whose background and education was deficient of the facts needed to understand the full ramifications of their left leaning policies For example, in a debate I once heard Maxine Waters D CA incredulously ask Why not when told that the government can t afford free healthcare, free college, free daycare, etc Because apart from the land of fairies and puppy dog tails where the Congresswoman, if not grew up, at least spent most of her summers, there are limits to a nations economic resources.But I was surprised to find that Barack Obama is not ignorant of these principles Instead, his book follows this basic model Even though history economics common sense show us that liberal policy has resulted in devastating consequence in the past, I still feel we have a duty to the American people to implement liberal policy For example, he ll preface a call forprotect...
