Publisher's Summary

The brilliant stylist, popular weekly columnist, Fox News commentator, and best-selling author Charles Krauthammer reflects on the legacy of our 44th president.

In these five new essays, Krauthammer offers a critique of the Obama administration: its failed and ambivalent foreign policy, the lawlessness of its rule by executive order, and an air of detachment that has turned this into "an observer presidency".

This exclusive digital-short audio edition will be included in the revised and updated edition of Things That Matter, also available from Random House Audio.

Exceptional

Krauthammer again triumphs. His logical, articulate analysis clarifies the issues and rationally identifies the legal conflicts.

Very good

Charles is a fine, lucid, decent man. He is honest, and easy to listen to.

Too short!!

I usually love Charles Krauthammer, but this was too short to enjoy. Not worth a credit and not exchangeable.

Refreshing and On Target

Mr Krauthammer once again demonstrates his exceptional insight into the utter failure of leadership, integrity, and aptitude of the Obama presidency.
His accuracy of assessment and delivery of facts continues to sets him far above the whining rhetoric and double talk of the media pundits and socialist left.
Excellent!!

a clear observation of a disastrous presidency.

The author presents an educated and organized set of arguments. These obliterate arguments in support of the competency of leadership by President Obama.
