Publisher's Summary

Critics of President Obama have attacked him as a socialist, an African American radical, and a big-government liberal. But somehow the critics have failed to understand what’s truly driving Barack Obama. Now best-selling author Dinesh D’Souza throws out these misplaced attacks in his new book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.
D’Souza explains that the reason Obama appears to be working to destroy America from within is found, as Obama himself admits, in The Dreams of My Father: a deeply hostile anticolonialism. Instilled in him by his father, this worldview has led President Obama to resent America and everything we stand for.
Viewing Obama through this anticolonialism prism and drawing evidence from President Obama’s own life and writings, D’Souza masterfully shows how Obama is working to weaken and punish America here and abroad. From enacting crippling financial reforms to setting artificial withdrawal dates in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama is trying to muzzle the capitalism which he sees as exploiting the weak. Our president, argues D’Souza, is more concerned with being labeled as America the Oppressor than winning the war on terror.
The Roots of Obama’s Rage reveals Obama for who he really is: a man driven by the anticolonial ideology of his father and the first American president to actually seek to reduce America’s strength, influence, and standard of living. Controversial and compelling, The Roots of Obama’s Rage is poised to be the one book that truly defines Obama and his presidency.
Dinesh D’Souza is the best-selling author of several books, including What’s So Great about America, What’s So Great about Christianity, and Life after Death. He has been a White House policy analyst, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and a fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He lives in Rancho Santa Fe, California, with his wife Dixie and their daughter Danielle.

If you want to understand Obama.

This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to understand Obama. The author lays out the only working theory that I have encountered that explains why Obama consistently takes actions that harm America.

D'Souza fans will like this

Dinesh D'Souza has researched Barack Obama in an effort to determine the motivations of this enigmatic president. On the surface, it appears that Obama is striving to bring about socialist equality. But D'Souza takes a closer look and determines that an anti-colonialism obsession is what drives Obama. I found the analysis of Obama to be interesting and worth reading.

Much of "The Roots of Obama's Rage" is a summary of D'Souza's own opinions regarding economics and foreign policy. This is a critique of Obama's misguided ideas. I am happy to read D'Souza's opinions as I regard him generally to be correct. However, I think his objective is to convince people that socialism and appeasement are bad policy and my experience is that socialists and appeasers are not swayed by logic.

The narration is excellent.
