Overview
In That’s a crock, Barack, Ambassador Fred J. Eckert -- author of the comic political satire novel Hank Harrison for President that Library Journal hailed as “One of the best political spoofs since The Mouse That Roared” -- examines Barack Obama’s own words – incredibly duplicitous, deceitful, arrogant and delusional – and subjects them to logic and wit to demonstrate what a con job Obama and his fawning media cheerleaders have perpetrated upon the American people. Ambassador Eckert, a former conservative Republican Member of Congress whom President Ronald Reagan described as “a good friend and valued advisor,” turns the tables on Barack Obama, the Left and the media by subjecting them to the sort of ridicule that they are so fond of using against conservatives. Intelligent and amusing, That’s a crock, Barack reminds us that in their allied efforts to promote Barack Obama, the Obama campaign, the Democrats and much of the media make the focus about how and where Barack says the things he says – Greek columns surrounding him, someone in the audience fainting, campaigning overseas in Berlin, the cheering Muslim audience, etc. – but all too rarely about what really matters -- the substance of what he actually says. Writes Eckert: “Barack Hussein Obama, it turns out, has a pattern of saying things that are untrue, delusional, arrogant, self-indulgent, absurd, silly, ludicrous, laughable and just plain wrong.” Eckert holds the words of Barack Obama up to the light of logic and reason and makes a compelling case that -- if one bothers to pause and actually think about what Obama says -- so often the words Obama spouts are, in truth, a crock. Gaffs Obama makes are ignored or covered up by a media that would turn them into some brouhaha had they been made by any major conservative political figure – and Eckert demonstrates the double-standard with potent examples. He makes it compellingly clear that it’s not just the small stuff on which the media give Obama a pass. Readers across the political spectrum – Republicans such as then-Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole and Democrats such as then-New York Governor Mario Cuomo --heaped high praise upon Ambassador Eckert’s political satire novel Hank Harrison for President. That’s a crock, Barack will likely be received with wild enthusiasm by conservative Republicans and with fear and loathing by liberal Democrats. In That’s a crock, Barack, Ambassador Fred J.

Description
Do you have the feeling that President Barack Obama plays fast and loose with the truth and says a whole lot of things that really don’t make sense? In That’s a crock, Barack, Ambassador Fred J. Eckert -- author of the political satire novel Hank Harrison for President that Library Journal hailed as “One of the best political spoofs since The Mouse That Roared” -- examines Barack Obama’s own words – incredibly duplicitous, deceitful, arrogant and delusional – and subjects them to logic and wit to demonstrate what a con job Obama and his fawning media cheerleaders have perpetrated upon the American people. Ambassador Eckert, a former conservative Republican Member of Congress and a man President Ronald Reagan described as “a good friend and valued advisor,” turns the tables on Barack Obama, the Left and the mainstream media by subjecting them to the sort of ridicule that they are so fond of using against conservatives. Intelligent and amusing, That’s a crock, Barack reminds us that in their allied efforts to promote Barack Obama, the Obama campaign, the Democrats and much of the media make the focus about how and where Barack says the things he says – Greek columns surrounding him, someone in the audience fainting, fireworks going off, campaigning overseas in Berlin, the cheering Muslim audience, etc. – but all too rarely about what really matters -- the substance of what he actually says. Writes Ambassador Eckert: “Barack Hussein Obama, it turns out, has a pattern of saying things that are untrue, delusional, arrogant, self-indulgent, absurd, silly, ludicrous, laughable and just plain wrong.” Eckert holds the words of Barack Obama up to the light of logic and reason and makes a compelling case that -- if one bothers to pause and actually think about what Obama says -- so often the words Obama spouts are, in truth, a crock. Gaffs Obama makes are ignored or covered up by a media that would turn them into some brouhaha had they been made by any major conservative political figure – and Eckert demonstrates the double-standard with potent examples. And Eckert makes it compellingly clear that it’s not just the small stuff on which the media give Obama a pass. When Obama says things that a George Bush or a Sarah Palin would be widely and loudly savaged as dumb for saying, it tends to get excused or covered up; when Obama says things most Americans would find to be megalomaniacal or mind-bogglingly absurd, often it is not just ignored or excused but actually passed off as dazzling and profound. For example, Eckert points out that while the media raved about Obama’s Cairo speech they ignored reporting things that show it to be such an incredibly silly speech. Eckert exposes the foolishness of several statements Obama made there, raising questions that the media should have raised. Are you aware that in this speech that the media gushed over Obama told his Muslim audience that he knows that “Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance”? Wonder why the media didn’t ask him if “Death to Infidels” and all the bombings and beheadings were among the words and deeds he had in mind? Are you aware that Barack Obama thinks and says things that outrageously detached from the truth? Are you aware that he boasted during a 60 Minutes interview that he is at least our fourth greatest president and possibly our greatest, ranking himself above at least three of the four great American president enshrined upon Mount Rushmore? Are you aware that CBS tried to cover up his braggadocio to protect him? Readers across the political spectrum – Republicans such as then-Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole and Democrats such as then-New York Governor Mario Cuomo --heaped high praise upon Ambassador Eckert’s political satire novel Hank Harrison for President. That’s a crock, Barack will likely be received with wild enthusiasm by conservative Republicans and with fear and loathing by liberal Democrats.
About the author
Fred J. Eckert (1941-present) was born and raised in Rochester, New York. He has been a US Ambassador, a Member of Congress, a state senator, the elected CEO of a large municipal government, a business executive and is ranked as a professional photographer. His latest book (Feb 2012), “That’s a crock, Barack,” examines the duplicity, deceit, arrogance and delusion in things said by President Barack Obama. His comic political satire, “Hank Harrison for President” was hailed by Library Journal as “one of the best political spoofs since The Mouse That Roared.” He is author/photographer of three photo books – two on Fiji and one on Tonga. His writings have appeared in such national magazines as Reader’s Digest, The Wall Street Journal and Outdoor Life; in a number of conservative outlets, including The Daily Caller, National Review Online, American Thinker, Pajamas Media, The Washington Examiner and Human Events; and in nearly every major newspaper in the United States. President Ronald Reagan called him “a good friend and valued advisor…a man of great experience and wisdom” and said of him: He has a quality that is all too rare in the political world, he has political courage; I know, for I have been a personal witness to that courage.” His exemplary performance in public office was the subject of an admiring Reader’s Digest profile and also drew accolades for his statesman stance from many other leading publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and every other major newspaper in New York State. He has lectured on the South Pacific at The Smithsonian Institution and debated international terrorism at England’s Oxford University Union, the world’s oldest and most prestigious debating society. A world traveler and award-winning travel writer, his features covering all seven continents have been nationally-syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, Creators Syndicate and Copley News Service and have appeared as the lead travel feature, illustrated with images from his award-winning Ambassador Eckert’s Images of Our World collection, in more than 200 of the leading newspapers in the US, in a number of US magazines and in publications around the world. Ambassador Eckert lives with his wife, Karen, in Raleigh, North Carolina. They have three grown children and four grandchildren.
