Among Illinois Review contributors is sassy, smart lady Teri O'Brien, who recently released her new e-book with a tongue-in-cheek title, "The ABC's of Barack Obama: Understanding God's Great Gift to America."
Teri is an educated attorney with a biting wit and conservative slant that shines as she starts with "A" and ends with "Z", alphabetically listing all the frustrating and irritating things Barack Obama has done and continues to do as president. By condensing the most egregious examples down to 26 different sub-headings, Teri performs a service for conservatives continually overwhelmed by the newest scandal or latest unconstitutional outrage the Administration has unloaded on the Republic.
She starts with A for "Affirmative Action," proceeds down the alphabet to J for "Jobs," N for "Natural Born Citizen," S for "Socialism," and finishes with Z for - well, that's for you to read and find out. But for Z, she found a big Z. Surely you get the idea.
Anytime a conservative from Illinois reads a review of what Barack Obama has done to America since he left our state stirs embarrassment and depression - two very unpleasant sensations. But who, really, should be able to spout the A to Zs of Obama's effort to fundamentally transform America more than patriots from Illinois? It's their duty and public service to have those examples on hand to drop the ABC's into those family discussions, cocktail party debates and Tweet out to skeptics.
Pick up a Kindle copy of "The ABC's of Barack Obama" on Amazon for a mere $1.99 and encourage Teri, Illinois' common sense version of the East Coast's Ann Coulter, to keep the pressure on. You'll chuckle as you wipe away tears when you're reminded of what we Illinoisans allowed on our watch. Take the medicine and commit to never letting it happen again.
