Dick Morris' 'Catastrophe' No. 1 on N.Y. Times Best-Seller List

Thursday, 02 Jul 2009 03:25 PM

More bad news for Barack Obama.

The first major book to be published on his presidency has shot up to the No. 1 spot on The New York Times' bestseller list the very first week of its release.

Unlike the fawning media coverage the Obama White House has come to expect, this new best-seller — "Catastrophe" — paints a deeply negative picture of Obama and his policies.

"Catastrophe: How Obama, Congress, and the Special Interests Are Transforming a Slump Into a Crash, Freedom Into Socialism, and a Disaster Into a Catastrophe . . . and How to Fight Back" is authored by Dick Morris and his co-author, wife Eileen McGann. Their book will debut on the Times list on July 12.

One of the nation's top political strategists and a Fox News analyst, Dick Morris argues that Obama has put the nation into free fall, transforming a vulnerable nation into a socialist state while engaging in a program of appeasement abroad that will invite disastrous terrorist attacks in the future.

The authors contend that Americans must act before President Barack Obama fully implements his radical political agenda, because after Obama has won his war on prosperity and canceled the war on terror, it will be too late to regain our liberty or our security.

The book also examines Obama's misguided healthcare proposals, his bailout of the banking and automobile industries, and his plans to cook the census, enfranchise illegal immigrants, muzzle talk radio, and coerce workers into unions — and warns that the administration's policies will lead to an unmitigated "catastrophe."

Obama is not the only target of the new book. The authors also spell out how powerful Democrats in Congress use special interests and special friends for their own enrichment and glorification.

Morris previous work "Fleeced: How Barack Obama, Media Mockery of Terrorist Threats, Liberals Who Want to Kill Talk Radio, the Do-Nothing Congress, Companies That Help Iran, And Washington Lobbyists for Foreign Governments Are Scamming Us ... and What to Do About It!" was also a runaway New York Times bestseller.

That book went after the credit card companies, the subprime mortgage lenders, and the hedge fund billionaires who conspired to wreck the economy — and Obama, whose policies, the authors predicted last summer, would "trigger a stock market crash."

Now in "Catastrophe," Morris and McGann warn that "doctrinaire socialist" Obama wants to use the recession to put the government in charge of the economy.

Probably the most prominent American political consultant, Dick Morris was a key adviser to numerous Republican candidates across the country, but he is perhaps best known for his work for Bill Clinton.

Morris is almost universally credited with piloting Bill Clinton to a stunning comeback re-election victory in 1996 after the president lost Congress to the Republicans two years before.

Called "the most influential private citizen in America" by Time Magazine, Morris helped steer Clinton to the center and away from the liberal policies he had pursued in his first two years in office.
