andlt;bandgt;(WASHINGTON, D.C.) andlt;/bandgt;On May 20, 2010, Laura Ingraham received a package from an anonymous source that will change the history of the United States and the legacy of President Barack Obama. While retrieving her automobile from the underground garage at the Watergate complex (where she had just enjoyed her weekly pedicure), Ingraham discovered a manila envelope on the hood of her car. When she picked it up, a deep baritone voice called out from a nearby stairwell: "Just read it. Youand#8217;ll know what to do." The shadowy figure then disappeared into the darkness without another word. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The envelope contained copies of what appeared to be diary entries written by President Barack Obama, his family, and high-ranking administration officials. Because the "diaries" are so revealing, Ingraham felt compelled to release them to the American public and the citizens of the world. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Major media outlets love to describe the president as "no drama Obama," but andlt;iandgt;The Obama Diaries andlt;/iandgt;tells a different tale. Through these "diary entries," readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama faand#231;ade to the administrationand#8217;s true plans to "remake America." andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;In andlt;iandgt;The Obama Diariesandlt;/iandgt;, Ingraham hilariously skewers the president and his minions. She takes aim at: andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;and#8226;the cynical "razzle-dazzle" marketing of Obamaand#8217;s radical agenda andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;and#8226;the use of the Obama "brand" and family to obscure Obamaand#8217;s true aims andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;and#8226;Michelle Obamaand#8217;s gardening and anti-obesity initiative; and much more. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Informative and hugely entertaining, andlt;iandgt;The Obama Diaries andlt;/iandgt;will inspire both laughter and critical thinking about the future of the nation and the man currently at the helm. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;bandgt;Excerpts from Laura Ingrahamand#8217;s andlt;iandgt;The Obama Diaries andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/bandgt;andlt;/iandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;bandgt;Obama on Sarah Palin:andlt;BRandgt;andlt;/bandgt;"Hell, doesnand#8217;t Palin have anything better to do than criticize me?
