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

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.’”

Dammit. I need a better agent.

None of that money is coming from me. :patriot:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I wouldn't pay $.32 for dinner with the Obamas, much less to read a memoir. What a god-awful evening that would be.

I have little doubt that Obama simply cannot wait to pen his third autobiography.

He's just that important.

To him.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

You mean the third autobio that Bill Ayers wrote? :whistle:

That's correct: "Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers, Part III: The Smog of Audacity".

Wouldn't that make the Obama's part of the 1%?

They already are, but of course no one ever talks about it.
