Bloggers Matt Margolis and Mark Noonan have just published this. From the blurb:
The Worst President in History: The Legacy of Barack Obama compiles 200 inconvenient truths about Obama's presidency--the facts that will shape his legacy: His real record on the economy; the disaster that is Obamacare; his shocking abuses of taxpayer dollars; his bitterly divisive style of governing; his shameless usurping of the Constitution; his scandals and cover ups; his policy failures at home and abroad; the unprecedented expansion of government power... and more.
I started skimming through this and it really does have 200 reasons that Obama is a bad president - each reason is at least the length of a blog post and some are several pages in length. All the facts and assertions are annotated with sources (there are 1105 footnotes). The book is divided into eleven sections ranging from Domestic Issues through Corruption and including Radical Islam. It's incredibly comprehensive.
I haven't read the whole thing yet, but from my sampling I can tell that the authors use a calm and reasoned tone, there does not seem to be any emotionalism. From the title I was a bit worried that it would have a lot of angry rants but it's not that type of book. It's more a chronicling of current history. Given how quickly we, the public, forget, and how the media loves to whitewash Democrat actions, I think this is an important book; I'm glad the authors have published it.
Someone suggested I sum up my reviews in one sentence (a good idea which I will do from now on for all my reviews going forward). Here's my summary:
In clear and objective language and well-supported by facts, Margolis & Noonan have compiled a devastating series of indictments of Barack Obama's presidency.
