A Misguided Attack on Stanley Kurtz’s “Radical-in-Chief” and Other anti-Obama Books

I knew that Stanley Kurtz’s new and important book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism, would be the subject of attack. I predicted that at first, the mainstream press would either ignore it, or if they find that they could not, would seek to go on the offense by comparing it to the score of rather knee-jerk screeds written against Obama by other conservatives, many of them rather easy to ridicule, dismiss and demonize.

Clearly, Kurtz has his hands full, having to try and distinguish his contribution from the rest of the pack, and hope that it is taken seriously. I have tried to do my own on its behalf by writing a serious review of the book, that will be published in the next issue ofNational Review. I hope readers buy that issue if they do not subscribe, and take my arguments about it into consideration. I go so far as to write in my conclusion that if the work Kurtz has done for this book had been able to be accomplished during the 2008 campaign, “Barack Obama would not have been elected President because he is simply not who he claimed to be.”
