Crimes Against Liberty: An Indictment of President Barack Obama

4.06  ·  Rating Details  ·  557 Ratings  ·  49 Reviews
As Americans, liberty is an inalienable right that is granted to us by God, protected by the Constitution, and upheld by our government. Yet, Barack Obama doesn’t seem to share that view. To him, liberty is a threat to the government’s power and something to be squashed by any means possible, as bestselling author David Limbaugh shows to devastating affect in his new book, ...more

When I review any current events or political book I know it's pretty sure to stir up some...controversy.

I'd suggest that you consider reading this book. I know that its very existence will anger some but on the whole it's nothing more than a litany of facts. Yes there is some opinion and I can't say that in every single case I come to the same conclusion as the writer (though I often already have.). Still most of the book is not opinion it is simple, recorded fact.

I suppose I could go over som

I've recently come to the conclusion that Liberals and Conservatives simply live in completely different realities. It's not just a matter of perspective, where we disagree on our different interpretations of reality. No, we have come to the point where we can no longer even agree on what is happening before our very eyes.

Limbaugh's book here is a case in point. Of course, I can't be surprised. He's Rush's brother, after all, and has a certain jock to be riding. So, I wasn't exactly expecting re

In spite of my conservative viewpoint, and the fact that I pretty much agree with David Limbaugh's assessment of President Obama (a narcissistic, fraudlent, lying, divisive, hyper-partisan, dictatorial, and imperious bully, just to list the chapter subtitles), I found this book a real slog to get through. It's almost 400 pages of specific examples that support all of the adjectives and nouns listed above, plus several others. Maybe I'm not the intended audience for this book - maybe it should be ...more

WOW!!! Great, great, great book.

I mean I already knew Obama was a bad President, but Limbaugh carefully documents just how disastrous his anti-American, statist-socialist policies and opinions have been.

Shelves: could-not-finish
To me, the book was an election year political TV commercial gone bad. Like the election year commercials (from either side of the political spectrum), facts tend to be cherry-picked and quotes are often taken out of context to support the perspective of the candidate. Political commercials of either political party during election time wear me out, and they often run for only 30 seconds. So a book length version of more of the same was more than I bargained for and left me unsatisfied with this ...more

This is the second David Limbaugh book I've read. Like the first, it is thoughtful and well-researched. Yet, for some reason I can't quite put my finger on, it is not riveting.... not exciting, but merely interesting. Still, one can learn a great deal about the disfunctional, and at times postitively malicious actions of our current administration under Presient Obama. One could find examples of crimes against liberty practiced by many past Presidents at one time or other: still, if one is to be ...more
David Limbaugh sets the tone of the book by starting with a bunch of ranting & unsupported, generalized conclusions against President Obama. To his credit, he does give specific examples to support his position in subsequent chapters. As with all highly biased, emotional viewpoints, some of the examples are relevant and some are not. If you are a critical reader, you can pick out bits & pieces of info. If you're far right wing, this book will make you feel validated.

Honestly didn't read past the first four chapters or so. Yes it is a well researched perspective into the shading background, opinions and actions of President Barrack Obama, but it does just drone on and on and is strictly a negative 'bashing' account. I'd simply prefer to spend my time reading material that is either more entertaining or actually useful.
Oct 08, 2010 Opa rated it it was amazing
The author thoroughly documents how Obama is purposely destroying our country. He makes the subject easy to read and very understandable. It just is very depressing that our president really wants to destroy all that is good in this country.
Sep 12, 2010 Linda rated it it was amazing
This is a great book. It confirmed everything I had thought about the political situation.
I never finished it and I threw it out when we moved last summer. I was so depressed after the last presidential election I had to stop listening and reading things about politics for a while. It just makes me mad to know all of the unlawful things that Obama does and no one does anything about it. We put up with all his junk just because he's the first black president and it makes me sick. I can't stand to read about it any more. There's no point in bringing it up if no one will do anything abo ...more

Sometimes, I find it difficult to review timely political books. It's not because I may find the subject matter objectionable in any way; rather, it's because most often the book involves either a sitting politician whose effectiveness is still being shaped or a currently popular political ideology that may not endure beyond the next election. In either case, I try to stick with reviewing the merits of the author's main premise while ignoring some of the lesser foibles along the way.

Jan 16, 2011 Michelle rated it really liked it
Limbaugh seems to play the part of trial lawyer prosecuting Obama for "crimes" against Americans & the Constitution and backs up his claims thoroughly. He defines narcissism and explains in detail why he (and others) believe Obama to be narcissistic. Disturbingly, Adolf Hitler has been psudo-diagnosed as clinically narcissistic by many psychologists & Limbaugh draws some parallels between the 2 men in this book. As a student (and former teacher of) history, I drew even more parallels bet ...more

An amazingly well researched dissection of the current administration in its own words and actions backed by a vast amount of research. I set my alarm clock at 9:11 P.M. to awaken me every night in preperation for my night shift and I wear an M-65 field jacket in desert digital camoflauge with numerous 9-11-2001 patches.

Often times the problem with contemporary books is that if you're a current events junky like myself much of the book is redundant material. If one is not a current events junky and wants a good overview of the last three years I think Crimes Against Liberty makes a good companion piece to Michelle Malkin and her book Culture of Corruption. Where Culture of Corruption focuses on the cronyism inherent in politics specifically in the Democratic party and in Illinois state politics (Obama's origins ...more

It is so challenging being an independent when it comes to politics. There seems no point in blaming either party and you are already admitting that you like bits and pieces of each political philosophy. I try to read a balance of right and left wing stuff. There were a few points in this book that I found over-emphasized. But overall I got a very interesting perspective on our president. Not shockingly to anyone who knows me, but the financial part of government is extra perplexing to me. Even ...more

A thorough, well-researched, and compelling book outlining who America elected in 2008 and 2012 and how he has literally shredded the Constitution and changed the culture and attitudes of America, perhaps forever. The fact that I read this book tells you which side of the fence I am on concerning American history and values, but this book just opened my eyes even further and fills me with trepidation for the country my kids will inherit in the next several decades. There is no opinionated rhetor ...more

I am not sure how to rate this book really. I am not happy with what the book says, but it is exceptionally well documented. Anyone who wishes to disregard this book will have trouble refuting it on fact. Mr. Limbaugh presents the facts as they are and it is hard to come to any other conclusions than those drawn out here. Anyone who wishes to argue these points with me from now on will have to come well documented as Mr. Limbaugh provided his sources. No longer can the anti-Bush crowd simply bla ...more

Reading a book on politics is like taking my vitamins - hopefully it will turn out to be good for me. This book is a little outdated, but it was still kind of interesting.

Interesting book detailing all his blatant disregard for American values and the Constitution from the start of his presidency till July 2010. Good read.

This book was amazing & appalling at the same time. This book peels away the veil surrounding the Obama administration. I found myself reading this book saying. "Oh yeah, I remember that..I remember that too." The greatest quality of this book outside of being very readable was the documentation. Every quote or statement is verified and noted in the appendixes. You can believe what is in the book because, never once since the book has been published has anything in it been challenged or prov ...more

A compelling indictment of President Barack Obama and his offenses against Americans, American Institutions and America's General Welfare and National Security. Preconceived notions of him, his agenda and his czars will either be confirmed or will be changed after reading this book. Powerful evidence of hypocrisy, dishonesty, radicalism and corruption in this administration. A New York Times #1 Bestseller, arm yourself with knowledge before the next election.

The author alleges that President Obama has taken actions during his campaigns and administration that are crimes against the United States of America. He covers lying to America, bullying his critics and opponents, cutting discriminatory deals to get his healthcare act passed, violatining the Constitution with his executive directives, and his attitude of "My way or the highway." I would have liked to have seen more evidence given.

At one point I stopped reading this book to read others and then just could not get back into it. This is not at all a comment on the book itself but more on my own fickleness. I think part of the problem is that I will research every footnote. I enjoy that. It makes the book better. But there's only so much time in the world and oh so many books to read. I have to move on.

Highly detailed recounting of every liberty-crushing action taken by President Obama. It gets a little long in reading the endless recollections of lists of things done by Obama and his cabinet, but this is also its greatest strength. It serves as an archive of what happened so that as our memory fades, we can turn to works like this to remind us of how things went down.
Sep 23, 2010 Nathan rated it really liked it
A well complied book of all the failings and overreaches of the Obama administration.
Very little new information for readers in the right wing echo chamber (as am I), but is it nice to review.
The documentation is excellent and although the book is written from an editorial perspective, there is very little speculation.
Nov 27, 2010 MG rated it it was amazing
Wow. David Limbaugh has written one of the best thought-out and researched arguments against the direction that the current Administration's designs on the future of the United States has taken us. A great companion book to Dinesh D'souza's "Roots of Obama's Rage", this book should be read BEFORE, not after.

Though this book goes into great length to display the hypocrisy and double-talk of President Obama and his failed policies, I never could quite get over the fact that the alternatives implied were not really any better in the long run for liberty.

If you read this book and don’t like it, it’s because you don’t like what you are learning. Roughly 90 pages of citations back up this 300 hundred page synopsis of the last two years.
