The Obamas are going to be paid $60 million for two books. Let that sink in. For all their talk about the rich getting richer and the rich not paying their fair share and the poor and middle class getting raked over the economic coals, it hasn’t stopped Barack and Michelle from cashing in big time. Three cheers for capitalism!
Business Insider reports:
“The bidding for the rights to books written by former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama has skyrocketed to more than $60 million, according to a report from the Financial Times.
“Penguin Random House, which has published three other books by Barack Obama, is leading the bidding war so far, according to the report published on Tuesday. HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, and Macmillan are competing.”
I have to wonder if this is some sort of payoff to the Obamas for promoting leftist policies. Don’t be surprised if leftist groups buy millions of books as a way to pay for the payoff. They owe him big time.
Do Americans really want to read more about Barack and Michelle? What millions of Americans really want to know is what’s on that original birth certificate and Obama’s college transcripts that he has moved heaven and earth to conceal. Revealing these that might sell a lot of books!
What more do the Obamas have to say that has not already been said? Obama has been on the self-adulation circuit for eight years…
