    So, the President of the United States gets two lines regarding his, no doubt, a good book written from his heart. Yet,
    you give Pain, Gingrich, and Bush days and days of paragraphs about their books. Unless you read further you would
    never know that this book was finished before President Obama took office, and all proceeds will be donated to a
    scholarship fund for children of fallen and disabled soldiers.
    Ticker, you have hit the bottom. Your bias is blatant and disgusting.

    How utterly symbolic. The proceeds from President Obama's new book will be donated to a scholarship fund for children of fallen and disabled soldiers. The proceeds from Silly Sarah's new book will be donated to.....Silly Sarah.
    I hope the President's book sells a billion copies.
    God bless you, Mr. President.
