Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 27, 2012
The George Jarkesy Show welcomed special guest Edward Klein, author of the #1 NY Times Bestseller, ‘The Amateur’, a book about Barack Obama’s lack of skill as a President. Jarkesy began by asking Klein the origin of the books title. Klein replied that during a meeting, Bill Clinton described Obama to be an “amateur” stating, “The people around Barack Obama don’t have a clue what they’re doing.” In “The Amateur” Clinton adds “they don’t understand how the real world works.”
Jarkesy questioned Klein about the book’s content regarding President Barack Obama. Klein stated that “Barack Obama is not suited….to be President of the United States”, a statement which he backs up in his book through facts gathered by interviewing many political leaders, many of whom worked directly with Obama. He goes on to say that besides having “nice ties” and being able to read from a teleprompter Obama “hasn’t the first clue how to get things done in Washington.”
“Main stream media hasn’t treated ‘The Amateur’ well” Jarkesy observed, however the book is #1 on the NY Times Bestselling list. Klein replied, “if it weren’t for radio programs like The George Jarkesy Show…no one would know about ‘The Amateur’. He added that his book has been #1 on the “bestseller list for 5 straight weeks.”
