""Obama was born in Kenya"..."Obama is a Muslim and a terrorist sympathizer"..."Obama is a Communist who wants to institute death panels"...The extent to which these undying lies have taken hold in the American mindset shows just how ruthless, destructive, and all-powerful the right-wing machine--hijacked by extremists in the media and fueled by corporate coffers--has become in America. And no one has inspired such venom as our nation's current president, who has been targeted by Republicans for a uniquely insidious brand of character assassination. In his characteristic on-the mark arguments sure to appeal to anyone on the Left or in the Center, talk show host and syndicated columnist Bill Press shows how the peculiar nature of Obama Hating subverts issue-driven debate and threatens not only the outcome of the 2012 election but the future of the American democratic system"--
