We’ve Been Had: How Obama and the Radicals Conned Middle Class America is the new book from James R. Keena. Keena is a popular and inspirational speaker at TEA party rallies, town hall meetings, and educational seminars – he also serves as a board member of the Tea Party organization, Rattle With Us. Dedicating his book to “TEA Party activists everywhere”, Keena writes,
“More than two centuries ago, we fought a military revolution over the sacred principles of individual liberty and limited government. Siunce then, millions of brave men and women haev sacrificed their very lives to defend them. Sadly, these principles are now under assault by radicals in our own country. The TEA Party movement is nurturing a grass roots political uprising to retake America from the radicals in Washington.”
Jim goes chapter by chapter through the enemies of the middle class, introduces readers to the real Barack Hussein Obama, introduces and gives the background to the host of Obama’s allies and supportive organizations, before wrapping up with a call to action. Mark Hendrickson of American Thinker says of the book,
“I was not eager to read We’ve Been Had. That was simply because I had grown very weary of its subject matter, one Barack Obama. I am so glad that I overcame my initial resistance and read this excellent book… It is comprehensively researched, masterfully organized, fluently written, and pleasantly free of shrillness. I had feared a rant, but on the whole, the book is written in a comfortable, almost conversational tone… We’ve Been Had is an amazingly breezy read for an encyclopedic study (76 pages of endnotes in support of about 270 pages of text) of the President of the United States and the various influences that have shaped his character and values.”
I can’t recommend the book enough myself. I was privileged to be invited by James to write a foreward for the book. People will only become engaged when they understand the consequences, when they know full well what’s at stake. The second American Revolutino will succeed or fail by similar means. If enough information can get into enough hands, quicly enough, America will have a fighting chance. Jim Keena’s book is a valuable contribution to that cause.
