Book Review: Divider in Chief (Politics Again?)

Divider In Chief: The Fraud of Hope and Change, Kate Openshain, Regnery Publishing, Washington, DC, 2012.
This is a book written before the election, and if its goal was to expose President Obama and thus effect the election, the only conclusion one can make is that it failed.  I don’t think people wanted to know who Obama was, and who could vote for a Mormon anyway.  Obama was able to marginalize and demonize Mitt Romney enough that he was able to win easily. 
The question I have however is if the country is better as a result.  This book points out how Obama is a fraud in many ways.  He makes decisions for votes, but then doesn’t deliver.  He is seen as the choice of the African American Community, yet he does nothing about jobs and keeps many dependent on the government, especially African American youth. 
He also talks about the war on women, which I have not noticed, but his economy and increased taxes are the real war on women. 
The author talks about Obama as a Divider, when he ran as a uniter.  He has polarized Israel, and insists on concessions which would make Israel go back to the 1969 borders, making Israel insecure and unsustainable.  He has allowed persecution of Christians to go on throughout the world, and did not stand with Iranians who were seeking change.  He has fomented race hatred, as well as class warfare.  He has marginalized the supreme court, and gone around congress with executive orders, often ignoring existing laws to do so.  He has tried to demonize those who do not agree with his policies, including the media, which has never happened to this extent before. 
My bottom line with Obama is he has made the country worse over the past five plus years, and hopefully we can survive the next three.  Never has our country been in such a great need for change. 
And no, I am not racist.  I can tell a poor president when I see one.
