    It's interesting how Democrats thought Ron Suskind was a wonderful, credible author as long as he was writing negative books about George Bush. Now that he is exposing Barack Obama as the weak President he is, suddenly these same Democrats are crying "foul" against this author.

    This IS an ENORMOUSLY important point, especially considering the claims of the far-left about the subject.And a republican would have ALREADY been CRUCIFIED by CNN in a similar situation....But let me ask you this Wolf, AND Jack....Why are you hiding ANY and ALL things, that are even slightly detrimental to the Obama administration ? EVEN MSNBC is discussing ( lying about ) the issue , but CNN is shelving it...Solyndra taking the FIFTH, and you're silent ????? That phony old fool Buffett, owing 1 BILLION dollars to the IRS, while talking the good lefty talk, and you're silent ??? A large democratic donor ( CEO of GE ) moving multi-billion dollar business operations to CHINA, and you're silent ??? A four-star General intimidated by the Obama White House, and you're silent ??? At least MSNBC IS wearing its colors.....YOU GUYS, are cowards....with your " sophisticated " manipulation of the news.....But I have news for's showing....and you're going down.....You just don't know it yet.....

    The interview with the writer was on the Radio Show last night ,Fresh Air and he says the book is solid and he's been doing this for years.He's an experienced reporter and calls it like it is . Others heard the comments and then he tapes some of them for the record. Reading this and thinking about that Obama/Clinton run off for President. "Don't look back"....Van Morrison. It was mentioned that in a meeting Obama would talk mostly with the men and not the women on his staff. Valerie Garrett then starts getting complaints from the women on the staff......and guess now we'll read the book and make our own decisions on what to believe and not to believe. He said something about Obama's economic advisors and he was told to dismiss them.

    Will Hillary Clinton please run for President ? What is Gov.Perry doing making this speech ? Is he getting National Security breifings running for President ? Do we play Molly Hatchet," Flirtin with Disaster" or just hope his decisions with Merk pushing govt. mandated drugs on kid vacines get smarter.

    Heard the interview with the writer of this book. He's on the truth in reporting and don't think he's making it up as he goes along but now that the book is out, everyone will lie ? Who's surprised and the writer told them all about the quotes prior to publishing the books.Can't wait to read the book.
