Obama for Kids

Ever since Barack Obama was young, Hope has lived inside him. From the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the plains of Kenya, he has held on to Hope. Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasn't quite like anybody else, but through his journeys he found the ability to listen to Hope and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people together.

This is the moving story of an exceptional man, as told by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Bryan Collier, both winners of the Coretta Scott King Award. Barack Obama has motivated Americans to believe with him, to believe that every one of us has the power to change ourselves and change our world.

I can't even believe this is a real book. I saw it and thought it had to be a joke, but here it is on amazon available for sale.

There's another one for Hillary Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight, and one for John McCain written by his daughter called My Dad, John McCain, but they lack the messianic flair that the Obama book has.

In October there are McCain and Obama comic books coming out, my brother likes to collect comic books so I had him reserve me a couple of the McCains and one of the Obama ones. The description of the Obama comic to me is a little over the top, but its not as bad as the Barack Child of Hope book.

H/T Is Barack Obama the Messiah

As long as there is a circus in town, people will be trying to cash in on it.

Obama's emergence in this campaign is turning into the greatest show on earth, and as P.T. Barnum said, "There is a sucker born every minute."

And Obama could be that amazing child because his mother didn't abort him. Maybe he should remember that when he votes on abortion.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
