Barack, Michelle Obama Could Bag Record $32 Million for Memoirs

by Wynton Hall 19 Jan 2014, 10:03 AM PDT

Obama biographer and New Yorker editor David Remnick reported on Sunday that First Lady Michelle Obama is already fast at work on her memoirs, which famed literary agent Andrew Wylie says could fetch $12 million.

Remnick quotes Obama strategist David Axelrod as saying that the president will most assuredly publish his presidential memoirs upon leaving office. “Now, that’s a slam dunk,” said Axelrod. Wylie says Barack Obama’s memoirs could command a $17 to $20 million literary advance, the most ever for a nonfiction book.

The president's best friend and Chicago businessman Marty Nesbitt said writing another book would be easy for Obama.

“I don’t see him locked up in a room writing all the time. His capacity to crank stuff out is amazing,” Nesbeitt said. “When he was writing his second book, he would say, ‘I’m gonna get up at seven and write this chapter—and at nine we’ll play golf.’ I would think no, it’s going to be a lot later, but he would knock on my door at nine and say, ‘Let’s go.’”

Barry's will be called "Nobody Told Me."
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Something tells me that once they are out of office, these books aren't going to sell very well... ;)

Just the opposite. When they are out of office, they will be celebrated by the media like no one before.

Get used to it. These two scumbags are going to be worshiped and made even wealthier.

They may get even more wealthier but there is no way the media can pull of talking about Michelle Obama like she is the Jackie Kennedy of the political world.
