A controversial but thoroughly debunked new biography of President Obama claims that Michelle Obama planned to divorce the future president in 2000.
In The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, which hit shelves Tuesday, author Edward Klein claims that the Obamas discussed divorce in 2000, after Obama failed to heed to his wife’s feelings about him challenging Democratic congressman incumbent Bobby Rush for a seat in the House of Representatives. Obama was trounced in the election, which he considered a turning point in his career.
But despite the incendiary claims, Klein, a right-wing author who has published books in the past that made outrageous and thoroughly debunked claims about Democratic politicians, has had this latest book largely ignored by the mainstream media because of the outrageousness of the charges he makes.
Among the book’s more questionable claims is an anecdote in which Klein quotes Rev. Jeremiah Wright accusing the Obama campaign of trying to bribe him to remain silent during the 2008 campaign. The book also goes after Michelle Obama, saying she is jealous and suspicious of the president around other women, she was wary of his relationship with Oprah Winfrey and she didn’t want Oprah coming to the White House because Michelle hates fat people.
This is the same Edward Klein whose 2005 book about Hillary Clinton, The Truth About Hillary, insinuated that she was a closeted lesbian who conceived Chelsea Clinton after she was raped by Bill. He also co-authored a book with a well-known “birther,” John LeBoutillier—who has also accused President Obama of being involved in several murders—that implied Obama was a Kenyan-born Muslim. He describes that self-published book, The Obama Identity: A Novel (Or Is It?), as a novel based on truth.
“During the dark days that followed his defeat, he turned to Michelle for comfort. But she was in no mood for sympathy,” Klein reportedly writes in The Amateur. “He had refused to listen to her warnings about taking on” Rush.
The unauthorized biography, which Klein claims is based on nearly 200 interviews, has been dismissed by a cast of experts, including presidential spokesperson Eric Schultz. On Monday, Schultz told the Washington Examiner, “Ed Klein has a proven history of reckless fabrication in order to sell books. Nobody in their right mind would believe the nonsense in this one.”

Yea, I heard Obama wants to marry Nancy Pelosi in a desperate attempt to regain the support of his base, that he betrayed and screwed-over with broken promises. By the way, Nancy was second choice. Hillary refused the first offer. I say throw that lying poser out of office.
cannot stand either of them….and as the old saying goes , " Where there is smoke , there is fire.". What about his pamphlet he had printed that said he was Born in Kenya….raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. He claims to have been born in Kenya until 2007….why the change?
@myra, U MUST BE A DRUNK OLD WOMAN.
You've got a good reason to be concerned, Myra, but let's say for the sake of argument that the President was in fact born in Hawaii (as the Arizona ballot kerfuffle this week is demonstrating, Obama still will not authorize the state of Hawaii to produce what should be the same birth certificate his White House released last year). His chances of getting ahead in academia were bolstered by his adhering to the notion that he was Kenyan-born and immigrated after a worldly tour. When the Harvard Law Review's "fact-checker" (at the time that blurb was published) recently proclaimed she had simply failed to properly check the facts, what seems worse? As prestigious an academic institution as the Harvard Law Review not bothering to seek the truth about its authors and staff, or a man riding the coattails of a lie to better publishing deals and a senatorial seat before conveniently abandoning it to pursue the Presidency of the United States? Ask Elizabeth Warren, she might know…
Not being born here would disqualify him from the office. Lying about his past to get there should be just as shameful. But we all know what a shameless opportunist this man is, so, disheartening as it is for the always-diminishing integrity of higher offices across the country, I suppose we're just supposed to sit back and accept one lie or the other until the next big diversion comes along to wipe it off the issues table. It's a wonder he hasn't yet found a way to blame Bush for the misleading HLR blurb.
And @Ray Alexander above, if Ms. Piland "MUST BE A DRUNK OLD WOMAN," you must be one of those ignorant little sh*teyes that landed us with Obama in the first place.
Anyone who see the stupid unpatriotic things that the clintons and the obamas are doing, against America and Freedom, must be either a sociaist liberal or very stupid. The only people I see in favor of what they are doing are the Union members, walfere moochers, muslims and all the black folks that hate white folks. That is his voting base, Oh I forgot throw in some stupid Mexicans (legal and illegal), they have been taught to believe that democrat means "for the people" and since they are too stupid to read and look around them they continue to believe the lie. Just like this insane bill this negro is trying to pass.
"Apparently – I’m supposed to be more outraged by what Mitt Romney does with his money rather then what Barack Obama does with mine."
HR 4646 Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
ON JANUARY 1, 2013, THE US GOVERNMENT WILL BE REQUIRING EVERYONE TO HAVE DIRECT DEPOSIT FOR SS CHECKS.
Subject: HR 4646.
Be sure to read entire explanation.
Watch for this AFTER the November elections; remember this BEFORE you VOTE, in case you think Obama is looking out for your best interest.
A 1% tax on all bank transactions is what HR 4646 calls for.
Do you receive a paycheck, or a retirement check from Social Security or a pension fund and have it direct deposit?
Well guess what… It looks as if Obama wants to tax it 1%!
This bill was put forth by Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA).
YES, that is 1% tax on all bank transactions – HR 4646, every time it goes in and every time money goes out.
Ask your congressperson to vote NO!
FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!
1% tax on all bank transactions ~ HR 4646 – ANOTHER NEW OBAMA TAX SLIPPED IN WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP. Checked this on snopes, it's true! Check it out yourself ~ HR 4646.
President Obama's finance team is recommending a one percent (1%) transaction fee (TAX). Obama's plan is to sneak it in after the November elections to keep it under the radar.
This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution – banks, credit unions, savings and loans, etc. Any deposit you make, or even a transfer within your own bank from one account to another, will have a 1% tax charged.
If your paycheck or your Social Security or whatever is direct deposit, it will get a 1% tax charged for the transaction.
If your paycheck is $1000, then you will pay Obama $10 just for the privilege of depositing your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry your paycheck or any check in to your bank for a deposit, 1% tax will be charged.
You receive a $5,000 stock dividend from your broker, Obama takes $50 just to allow you to deposit that check in the bank.
If you take $1,000 cash to deposit at your bank, 1% tax will be charged.
Mind you, this is from the man who promised that, if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax.
Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn about this guy's under-the-table moves to increase the number of ways you are taxed.
Oh, and by the way, if you receive a refund from the IRS next year and you have it direct deposited or you walk in to deposit that check, you guessed it. You will pay a 1% charge of that money just for putting it in your bank.
Remember, any money, cash, check or whatever, no matter where it came from, you will pay a 1% fee if you put it in the bank.
Some will say, oh well, it's just 1%. Are you kidding me? It's a 1% tax increase across the board. Remember, once the tax is there, they can also raise it at will. And if anyone protests, they will just say, "Oh, that's not really a tax, it's a user fee"!
Think this is no big deal? Go back and look at the transactions you made from last year's banking statements. Then add the total of all those transactions and deduct 1%. Still think it's no big deal?
U dont like who
Anyone who drinks from the bull s*** cup passed around by the Republicans is truly out of touch..Many debunked lies put out against the President show what kind of party the Republicans are…Many bible thumping people that are suppose to be religious hate people for their skin color…HOW DUMB IS THAT? The problem with people both black and white is that they don't reach out to the other side…Very closed minds…Is that the world we want to leave behind for our kids? That's screwed up.
