The Obama administration has sought to discredit Ed Klein’s explosive new book about the president, but “Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” is No. 1 on the New York Times’ list of best-sellers for the second straight week.

Klein’s book is buttressed by nearly 200 interviews with people close to Obama, and features blockbuster disclosures about one of the most secretive White Houses.

Klein is the former editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine, former foreign editor of Newsweek, and a contributing editor to Vanity Fair. He sat down in New York with former Congressman and Newsmax columnist John LeBoutillier for an exclusive interview about Klein’s expose.

LeBoutillier asked Klein about the administration’s reaction to the book.
“It’s been very interesting,” Klein said.

“The White House has tried, sort of, to ignore it but they have said oh, this is just fiction, it didn’t happen, he made it all up. This is in the face of the fact that I interviewed the president’s physician, who has been his internist for 23 years, on the record. I interviewed the president’s colleagues at the University of Chicago law school, on the record, and I interviewed the Rev. Jeremiah Wright for three hours on tape, and none of that could obviously been made up.

“What else can they do? They have no comeback.

“It’s sort of like what can Barack Obama say about his record, given the fact that it’s so bad? What can he say about this book? He can’t say anything because it’s all factual.”
