Book Review

Fool me twice : Obama's shocking plans for the next four years exposed


I decided to read Fool Me Twice because, though I don't have a great knowledge of politics, I find it interesting and would like to know more. Aimed directly at discrediting everything Barrack Obama says he is and claims to be doing, this is Klein's fourth title in as many years delving into politics and government.

Having done massive research into the topics that are discussed, the authors got the book published prior to the 2012 election claiming to pull back the curtain, so to speak, on what a second term for Obama would really mean for America—hence the title. Klein and Elliot attempted to give a view of politics and Obama's policies that, they believe, is constantly hidden by the media and the entire left, who are trying to protect the president.

Now that Obama has been reelected, the very thing that this book was trying to counter, it will be interesting to see if all of the predictions made about what Obama would do with a second term, are accurate. Going issue by issue, the book attempts to explain why Barrack Obama's policies and philosophies are misleading, hypocritical, simply wrong, or even, intentionally damaging.

Assembling a lot of evidence and quotes from the proverbial horse's mouth, Klein and Elliot seek to demonstrate how Obama and all of his supporters contradict themselves, contradict facts, and just lie. I think the sources are used very convincingly, and even if you cannot completely buy into the ideas that are being propagated, it successfully questions what we hear in the media, and perhaps even what we think we know.

I think the book would probably be an automatic pass for anyone who avidly supports Barrack Obama and doesn't want to read anything opposing him, but for those who either already have a contrary stance, or for those who simply aren't sure, this will most likely be an informative and thought-provoking read. Whether or not a person agrees with everything that's said in this book, I would recommend anyone to read it. If you can agree, it's very convincing, and even if you're in vehement protest, it's always advantageous to know the opposition's reasoning.
