Written by David Freddoso, a reporter for National Review Online, “The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media’s Favorite Candidate,” was officially published by Regnery Publishing, Inc. Tuesday and has nearly 300,000 copies in print, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.

“There’s a pent-up demand from people on the right side of the aisle who feel that the mainstream media is effusively covering Barack Obama and not critically covering him,” says Marji Ross, president and publisher of Regnery Publishing.

Two other anti-Obama books are also on Amazon.com’s Top 20 list despite receiving little critical attention or mainstream media coverage.

They are Jerome Corsi’s, “The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality,” and Dick Morris,’ “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.”

Corsi co-authored “Unfit for Command,” an attack against the war record of 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, and Morris is a former presidential adviser, veteran political analyst and author.

Corsi’s book is in its third printing, and Morris’ work is in its eighth.

“The authors allege that Obama is not a benign spokesman for hope and unity, but an ideologue with close ties to 1960s radicals and the Chicago political machine,” The Sun-Times reported.

Cal Morgan, a vice president and executive editor at HarperCollins who worked on Morris’ book, said: “With books like these, the minute some people know they’re out there, they must have them.”
