    In his latest spirited book, O'Reilly prompts further debate with the president and the American people on the current state of the union. While the changes that took place in America during President Obama's first 18 months in office are dizzying to just think about, their real-life impact on the average American is a helluva lot stronger than that. Tempers have reached the boiling point over the shifts in healthcare, immigration, national security, energy, and the environment.

    Story

    Bill O’Reilly’s book is okay. He deals fairly with most of the political celebrities and even has a couple of favorable comments for President Obama. He points out the negative things about Democrats and liberals, and the positive things about Republicans and conservatives. These are mostly true although it is obvious that he is leaving out many things he could say to the opposite.
    The first 3 hours is mostly Bill ranting. I really got tired of all the yelling. Why can’t he just speak? The last half he calms down a bit. He hails President Reagan’s economic plan, but fails to mention that it tripled the Federal debt and ushered in the deepest recession since the great depression. This is a feat that was exceeded only by President Bush, who tripled the Reagan debt and ushered in the deepest recession since the great depression.
    Most of his criticism about President Obama focuses on his lack of anger. For example, Bill criticizes Mr. Obama for insisting that the oil drillers cap the BP oil leak. Well, who else has the expertise? I suppose he thinks the President should have donned a rubber suit and cap it himself. When the underwear bomber was arrested in Detroit, he was sent to jail. There he eventually spoke with a lawyer. Bill calls this an “atrocity.” I suppose due process is only for criminals we like. Maybe he thinks we should have hauled this African out and lynched him.
    Mr. O’Reilly often states that he is not a Republican. He sure sounds like one. I am one of the moderate majority and have no allegiance to either extreme. I gave this book 3 stars for entertainment value. I might have given it 4 stars if a better narrator read it.
