In the introduction to his biography of President Obama, David Maraniss writes of Obama’s self-described “autobiography” Dreams of My Father, “It is important to say that it falls into the realm of literature and memoir, not history and autobiography, and should not be read as a rigorously factual account.” In other words, most of what we supposedly “know” about Obama is actually pure fiction. The American people deserve better.
To that end, The Washington Examiner’s investigative reporting team conducted a four month investigation into Obama’s past, interviewing dozens of people across the country, and studying countless court transcripts, government reports and other official documents. Lead investigator Mark Tapscott summarizes the picture of Obama that emerges, “Beyond the spin and the polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer but rather a classic Chicago machine pol who thrives on rewarding himself and his friends with the spoils of public office, and who uses his position to punish his enemies.”
