Tommy Newberry should be read by all freedom loving Americans. It is not a personal attack on Obama, but instead, attack the policies that he is trying to pass. In fact, he admires that Obama has been able to live the American dream. Please read this book and pass it on to a friend or foe.

Even as an individual who leans conservative, this book was right-wing propoganda.
