Barack Obama has released a new book reflecting upon his two terms as President of the United States. In it, he lauds many accomplishments and critiques some issues that fell short.
VOX book review “Again and again, he concludes he always made the best of a set of bad choices.”
With a Joe Biden presidency on the horizon, pundits are sounding alarms that America needs to awaken to recapture the spirit of the Obama era.
Obama’s #APromisedLand shows how he got there & left most of his people behind. It shatters any lingering illusions of him being a fighting Joshua & shows his captivity to Wall Street greed, Pentagon militarism & refusal to confront massive black social misery & U.S. poverty! https://t.co/aV6njYZSll
