Présentation de l'éditeur

The election of Barack Obama as President of the USA is a defining moment for all of us. After years of failed policies and a failed politics from Washington, change has arrived. Barack Obama now has the chance to reclaim the American dream. He has proven to be a new kind of leader–one who can bring people together, be honest about the challenges we all face, and move his nation forward. Change We Can Believe In outlines his vision for America and its standing in the world. In these pages you will find bold and specific ideas about how Barack Obama plans to fix the ailing American economy and strengthen its middle class, make health care affordable for all, achieve energy independence, and keep America safe in a dangerous world. Change We Can Believe In asks us not just to believe in Barack Obama's ability to bring change to Washington, it asks us to believe in the ability of each of us to change the world.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Only half of this is worth the time and $ 26 octobre 2008
Par Andre M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Folks, I've met Obama once, heard him speak in person twice, and am very much and admirer of his, but this book (the first half, at least) just doesn't cut it.

The first half of this book, apparently written by campaign satffers, attempts to spell out what "Barackism" has to offer. In other words, it's his program statement through the words of his staffers. My friends, these ideas are good, but reading this part is as exciting as watching paint dry. Dull, dull, dull. Every other sentence begins, "In an Obama administration, this or that will happen." Bring out the sominex, people.

Part 2 is the good stuff. This contains the best of his actual recent speeches from Iowa (Jan. 4, 2008) up to a speech he made this summer in Michigan about the economy (this apparently went to press before the Denver speech of Aug 28, 2008). Even on paper, this is exciting and inspiring. Highlights include the New Hampshire speech of Jan 8, 2008 (best known as the "Yes We Can" speech), the Father's day speech (the one that inadvertantly killed off Jesse Jackson's career after the Rev. was caught making profane and jealous remarks on camera about this message), and his race speech in Philadelphia which articulates what a lot of us post-movement Blacks feel about the bitter ranting and pessimism that passes for Black nationalism.

So for reading the "Best of Barack" in his own words, it's pretty good. The rest? Let the buyer beware. Readers are better off with the various compilations of the "Best of Barack" in speeches and writings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Obama's plan, Obama's poetry 9 septembre 2008
Par Julie Neal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This calm, straightforward book reminds me why I have a "Women for Obama" bumper sticker on my truck. It's short on rhetoric, long on clear-headed, specific ideas on how to fix America's problems. In back are seven key speeches from this long presidential campaign, speeches so beautifully written they read like poetry. Any voter wanting to know more about who Barack Obama is and what he stands for should read this book.

In essence, it's a glimpse into what Obama will do as president, why these actions are smart, and how he'll get the plan done. It's like a presidential crystal ball, letting readers know what they're voting for -- or against.

Change We Can Believe In was put together by Obama for America, with a foreword by the candidate. Net proceeds from book sales will be donated to charity.

The speeches soar. The "race" speech Obama gave in Philadelphia is striking in its honesty: it is from a leader, not a politician. From the New Hampshire Primary Night speech: "And so tomorrow, as we take this campaign south and west, as we learn that the struggles of the textile worker in Spartanburg are not so different than the plight of the dishwasher in Las Vegas; that the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of L.A.; we will remember that there is something happening in America: that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in America's story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea. Yes. We. Can."

Here's the chapter list:

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Mid-Term Report Card for President Obama 5 octobre 2010
Par Herbert L Calhoun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A month before the 2010 mid-term elections is as good a time as any to see how our new president is doing. This book provides and unmistakable metric for evaluating the president's performance, so far during the first half of his term. It also puts clearly on the record BHO's rhetorical positions and platform. And thus, it serves as the perfect metric for evaluating BHO's success, so far. And while it would be unfair and premature to prejudge him on everything he has promised, just half way through his first term, it is not unfair to judge him on those aspects of his promises that he has kept and that have already been implemented as Obama successes. That in my view is the primary utility of this book.

The good news is that, President Obama (against severe opposition from Republicans and from corporate lobbyists), has managed to keep many of the campaign promises listed in his platform on pages 23-24, to: reform health care, curb Wall Street excesses, create a federally-funded stimulus program to help bring the nation out of the recession, and to remove American troops from the needless Iraq war. He has also pledged to eliminate the Bush/Cheney tax cuts for the rich, while not raising taxes on the middle- and lower-classes.

The bad news is that in each of these instances of his success, BHO has strove for and achieved only the absolute minimum. This lack of courage to get into the battle and defend progressive ideals, has left a bad taste in the mouth of his progressive base. By repeatedly capitulating pre-emptively to Republican pressure, demagoguery, and negotiating tactics - BHO has unnecessarily given away everything dear in the "progressive store;" and has done so often without even putting up a fight. In short, without anything in return, BHO has unnecessarily squandered away his political capital and his main political advantage: the mandate awarded to him through the election process.

For example, his healthcare reform (page 19, and 44-46), like the Cheney/Bush reforms before them, was written "of," "by" and "for" the Insurance, drug and Pharmaceutical companies. The best proof of this is that all of their stocks jumped dramatically upon enactment of the program. And even though "Obamacare" (as those on the Right derisively call it) is advertised as providing healthcare for 34 million previously uncovered Americans, in point of fact all it does is give them the right to purchase exorbitant health insurance at whatever rates the insurance and drug industries wants to charge. But more importantly, page 45 of this book says that the Obama healthcare bill will bring down cost by $2500 per family and improve quality. The truth is that even during the first year of "Obamacare," healthcare costs for everyone have continued to rise at the astonishing clip of 15-30% per year.

On curbing Wall Street excesses, again we see the same Obama tactics used repeated of taking the low road of least resistance and "going for the minimum". And again the reality of what was accomplished does not measure up to the rhetoric used in this book to advertise the success. None of the loopholes that created the financial meltdown were fixed. They were simply tightened a bit and "smoothed over" with a few "limp-wristed" transparency measured. No one was fined or jailed, and the "credit default swaps," and the building of Bernie Madoff like Ponzi schemes can continue unabated.

But worse than this, on the federal stimulus package, BHO was bullied into allowing the Wall Street Bankers to have their way. And now, not only is Wall Street back to pre-crisis level profits and bonuses, but are aslo up to the same old tricks again. Never has BHO appeared weaker than when he is standing by watching as Wall street holds the jobs for working Americans and small businesses hostage to further relaxation of rules and greater tax cuts for the rich.

On removing troops from Iraq, the language in the terms of reference for withdrawing have been finessed so skillfully, watered-down and made so fuzzy, that even a slew of lawyers from K-street cannot determine when we will actually leave Iraq, if ever? Candidate Obama ran, and won office as an anti-war politician, yet, as President he has adopted the Cheney/Bush strategy of increasing U.S. presence in Afghanistan. So far, the success (or failure) there lies well hidden under the "fog of war."

Thus we can see from this book that even on the things that BHO has accomplished, there always is an unmistakable taint: All of BHO's victories seems pyrrhic. In every case there is a disturbing trend of BHO lacking a enthusiasm for core principles that will commit him to fight for the causes of those who elected him. If this trend continues, the campaign slogans that bracket this book of "Audacity of Hope" and "Change that we can believe in," can be safely discarded and placed on the scrape heap of history and Obama can forget any thoughts of a second term presidency. Two stars

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Government We Can Believe In 9 septembre 2008
Par Steven P. Croley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Barack Obama's previous books, especially Audacity, speak eloquently about his vision of politics. This new books speaks with equal clarity and wisdom at greater length about his vision of government. The first two-thirds of the book present "The Plan" for reviving our broken economy, exploiting new technology, confronting our enemies abroad, and fixing a government that helps the few and ignores the many. The final third contains some of his best speeches. The book provides readable details about what President Obama's priorities would be. It successfully blends large themes--like reducing government waste and encouraging American entrepreneurship--with corresponding specifics--like requiring disclosure of legislative earmarks and exempting start-up companies from capital gains taxes. The book is as compelling as it is important.
