President Obama, who doesn’t want to drag his children into politics unless it behooves him politically to do so, has written the following children’s book:


Well, either Obama or William Ayers wrote it, but that’s neither here nor there at this point.

Just a little reading material for the folks in the unemployment line:

As part of the book deal then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., inked in 2004, Random House today announced the publication of a children’s book by the president, “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters.”

The book will be released on November 16 – roughly two weeks after the midterm elections — with a 500,000-copy first printing.

I’ve been able to obtain a few of President Obama’s letters to his daughters that are contained the book.

Here’s a brief sampling:

Dear Daughters,

I’ve mortgaged your future to the eyeballs, but as Abraham Lincoln once said, “There are times future generations must sacrifice for the good of contemporary organized labor.” Or was it Jefferson who said that?

Dear Daughters,

I know your mom’s a little over-zealous about your weight — it’s just that she can’t very well orchestrate a takeover of the restaurant industry based on the fact that she’s the best possible choice to rid the world of obese kids if you two have even an ounce of pudge on you.

Dear Daughters,

Just a reminder: The teleprompter is for my use only. Watching Jonas Brothers DVDs on it is unacceptable. Yesterday I was giving a speech to the UAW and ended up reciting the lyrics from Love Bug.

Dear Daughters,

Life is a lot like golf. You get up in the morning, go play golf, go home, dream about golf, get up the next day, and go play golf again. Not a bad life.

Dear Daughters,

It just occurred to me that you might grow up and inherit General Motors from me, so there’s a few things you need to know about how to run a car company. First you take a lot of money from the taxpayers, then you draw a neat looking battery powered car you’d like to see made, try and get the price of the battery for it under $30,000 (if you can’t, no biggie — just get more money from the taxpayers), and then sell it for lots of money. Don’t give it back to the taxpayers, but rather tell them you’re going to invest it in “green jobs” like the ones that made that car. If nobody bought the car you made, just take more money from taxpayers so you can give it to the people who made it so they don’t lose their jobs (Union only, very important!). Economy saved!

Dear Daughters,

First rule about Obamacare: Don’t talk about Obamacare!

Other books from the Obamas to look for are the president’s motivational tome entitled “Who Moved My Teleprompter?” and a book written by the Obama daughters dedicated to their mother called “BMI Calipers Dearest.”

    Will there be a cut-out compartment in the book to hold the "secret spy decoder ring" so readers can cypher all the subliminal messaging ???! Afterall , nothing The One That Won One says can go without explanation !!!

    6 years getting this thing to press ? Did TOTUS move the transcript ?

    TOTUS is the only thing about this administration I find at all palatable !

    What I don't understand is where a sitting President found the time write a book while still in office? I mean between playing golf, taking holidays and going out for Ice Cream it's amazing that the guy had time write at all.
