The same publisher that distributed the 2004 best-seller that took aim at John Kerry’s Vietnam service is planning a summer release of what’s scheduled to be the first critical book on Barack Obama.
Conservative journalist David Freddoso’s “The Case Against Barack Obama” will offer “a comprehensive, factual look at Obama,” according to Regnery Publishing president and publisher Marjory Ross.
But the book’s subtitle makes clear its perspective: “The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate.”
Ross contends that the mainstream media has offered insufficient scrutiny of Obama and likens the goal of Freddoso’s book to that of “Unfit for Command,” the scathing assessment of Kerry’s war record that rocketed to No. 1 on The New York Times best-seller list.
By highlighting negative aspects of Obama’s record and background, Ross says, Freddoso may compel others to offer more critical coverage of the Democratic nominee.
“I think it’s critically important that the country gets a clear and honest view of who is running and what they stand for — warts and all,” Ross says. “With ‘Unfit for Command,’ like ‘The Case against Barack Obama,’ we believe the media has whitewashed the candidate.”
But unlike the Kerry book, which was co-authored by a fellow Swift Boat veteran and focused exclusively on the Massachusetts senator’s actions in Vietnam and immediately after, “The Case Against Barack Obama” aspires to be a full-length political biography.

A friend of mine and I were discussing the fact that Sean Hannity uses 'racist-style' debating tactics on Hannity & Colmes and his solo show Hannity's America. The topic slowly turned to the fact that Fox"News" fabricate evidence in order to make people into creatures that they are not. We were discussing prospective titles of a project about Fox and we came up with one that was both controversial and frighteningly accurate in reference to Fox.
"If There Weren't Any N*****s, FoxNews Would Invent Some."
I can't stand racism, no matter who it is from. But, for people like Fox, David Freddoso, or anyone to slander, smear, and defame people based on color, creed, or religion is beyond pathetic. I was rather hesitant to even agree that that was an apt title. But upon further examination, I can't think of another title. Racial epithets aren't my style, but when you're talking about Fox"News" and people within the lunatic-fringe that they identify with and even employ, you've got to play dirty sometimes while using the facts.
