The Obamians by James Mann.. We may as well hope that Yes We Can be a country who won’t elect a possible sociopath (Okay, just call the Romster out of touch), so we may want to get to know the O circle a bit better. You’re welcome!

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"They could not have a better chronicler than Mann, a longtime journalist at The Los Angeles Times who has written a similar book called “Rise of the Vulcans” about the conservatives and neoconservatives who surrounded President George W. Bush. Like the best reporters, Mann lets his subjects speak for themselves, then checks their fancies against the facts. He has given us a very good first cut at history."

The New York Times

"We can now hold The Obamians up for the camera for everyone to see, and proceed. James Mann’s book, which reports on the realm of President Obama’s foreign policy apparatus, is more or less a sequel to his Rise of the Vulcans, which did the same job on President George W. Bush. It starts at a disadvantage because our 2012 politics is concerned more with matters here than matters over there. But it still succeeds on a number of levels."
