A style is born. On October 5, 2010, weighing about two pounds, one ounce, in hardcover, given name: The Mendacity of Hope: Barack Obama and the Betrayal of American Liberalism. Its baby daddy Roger D. Hodge. hails from the left-elite camp — again! Roger is not alone because other left wing stellar wordsmiths are lending their names to the cabal of Obama haters by penning books, online chatter and tribal council to bring Obama down. And the e-leaks read “President Interrupted.”
It started with the right, really. But the professional left is gaining ground. Once sipping the tea of contentment, laid back unready to slash and burn…yet. But now they are writing with as much vim and verve as one group can wield. They are calling Obama out as liar, as the root of mendacity in French “to lie.”
What do the elite really want? Their own round table seat complete with Kool-Aid service where they can rant, spin and spend another trillion dollars? Copy-cat criminals, the lot of them, are at the root of these new tomes. Let’s see who can out-write, outwit and out-sell the most anti-Obama diatribes. Who knew it would come to a spitting-in-Obama-eye contest between left and right wingnuts over who will write the ugliest book on the first black president in the age of Obama?
The Obama presidency has become fair game. It was also a waiting game. Writers laying in wait for Obama well before the Ides of March to launch a cunning offensive from an iPad at an undisclosed location. Mission accomplished boys and girls.
Unfortunately, Hodge’s book just might be the Democrats and Obama’s undoing or the longest “Dear John” letter ever written. His book should come with a warning label: ”wear black while reading,” because it may be final nail in the Obama administration coffers.
