A MODEL OF A BIASED BIOGRAPHY,
This review is from: The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama (Paperback)
In the universe of David Remnick, Obama was meant to be President since he came out of high school and all the doubts about him are products of Republicans, even conservative Democrats, all considered by the author to be on the fringe.
We read again and again and again about race, and Remnick never shows what qualities Obama would have to be the commander in chief, we have costantly this subtle message that because of the hard times the blacks have had in the past, Barack Obama was to be President, to begin to refund for the past damages.
In the world of Remnick, there would be no room for Republicans or conservative Democrats, just for centrist Democrats or leftist Democrats and all those who delve into Obama's past and associations are making hatred books or articles.
There is NOT one single issue of Obama's policy, as a state senator, as Senator or as a candidate for the Presidency and the attacks of John McCain or especially of Sarah Palin are - per Remnick - obviously punches under the belt.
And do not doubt about that: there is no mention of Michelle Obama's comment about being for the first time proud of her country because it is about to promore her husband to the Presidency. This is not the only omission.
If we think that the author is the editor of The New Yorker the whole work is simply appalling!!
