Whoops. He’s suddenly flown the coop, headed to an elementary school in Arlington, Va. to read to about 90 second graders, many the children of military families.
And guess what he’s reading. None other than his own writings, the latest bestseller, “Of Thee I Sing,” a kids book in the form of a letter to his daughters telling them – and any kids who read the book – how wonderful they are.
The idea is to highlight a list of “great” Americans who each exemplify certain laudable characteristics. The chapter, “Have I Told You that You are Creative?” talks about Georgia O’Keefe, and so forth.
Obama continues to make little effort to keep his daughters away from his political brand, which inevitably imbues everything he does. I think it’s a mistake.
The profits of this one go to charity.
The book is not the least bit politically correct, as Obama includes Al Capone, Newt Gingrich, Robert E. Lee and Pete Rose among those profiled.
Yahh, you gotta be kidding me. Here’s the list:
Georgia O’Keefe, Jackie Robinson, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Cesar Chavez (of course), Sitting Bull, Billie Holiday, Albert Einstein, Helen Keller, Maya Lin (she designed the Vietnam Memorial, remember? No?), Martin Luther King Jr., and Neil Armstrong.
Want it for Christmas anyway? Here.
