Thanks to the folks at the "History Company", you can do just that. Yes, that's right, the History Company is selling pocket-sized compilations of Obama's stirring quotations, so you can read them anytime. While waiting in line at the unemployment office, for example.
If you'd like to buy a copy, or just see the ad, click here.
Notice though that you cannot buy just one copy from the History Company, you must buy at least ten copies. And after all, who would want to buy just one copy. You need extra copies to pass out to your friends, or maybe as replacement copies when the copy you are reading wears out. (If you want to buy only one copy, you have to do it through Amazon, and don't forget to enter through VDARE.COM .)
Here is the History Company's description of this essential product:
Printed in a size that easily fits into pocket or purse, this book is an anthology of quotations borrowed from Barack Obama's speeches and writings. POCKET OBAMA serves as a reminder of the amazing power of oratory and the remarkable ability of this man to move people with his words. His superb and captivating oratory style has earned comparisons to John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and this historic collection presents words that catapulted his remarkable rise to the American Presidency....What can a dedicated reader expect to find?
The little blue book includes themes of democracy, politics, war, terrorism, race, community, jurisprudence, faith, personal responsibility, national identity, and above all, his hoped-for vision of a new America. POCKET OBAMA is a portable, everyday primer for readers who want to examine the substance of his thought and reflect on the next great chapter in the American story.And, know this—according to the History Company, you really SHOULD have the Pocket Obama :
It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times.Compare that line to the Wikipedia entry on Chairman Mao's Little Red Book :
The book's phenomenal popularity may be due to the fact that it was essentially an unofficial requirement for every Chinese citizen to own, to read, and to carry it at all times during the later half of Mao's rule, especially during the Cultural Revolution.A little too close for comfort, is it not ?
