Woodward's Obama book hits shelves today
The book only lands in stores today but it already feels like it's been around a while. The Washington Post and the New York Times have bashed out news stories revealing the meatier bits of its revelations, and the New York Times has rushed out a review after getting its hands on an embargoed copy.
Few books generate buzz like a new one from the Washington Post's Bob Woodward, and his latest "Obama's Wars" is no exception. Today The Washington Post publishes an excerpt from the book, which is destined to be another mega bestseller like Woodward's previous titles, among them: "Bush at War," "Plan of Attack," and "State of Denial."
Already Newsweek is speculating on the book's impact on Democrats in mid-term elections later this year. The British newspaper the Telegraph suggests that Woodward's tome will help turn Obama into a one-term president in the 2012 election.
Early reports on the book said it revealed that President Obama believes the United States could "absorb" another terrorist attack. Fox News jumped on the statement, quoting Liz Cheney, Dick Cheney's daughter and chairwoman of Keep America Safe, as saying the comment suggested "an alarming fatalism."
One thing is clear: Woodward's book turns up the heat on the political pot and, with the actual release of the book, the hot blather will come frothing over the top all the more.
