"My name is Craig K., and I'm an Obamaholic." So begins the mock confession of a former community organizer who woke up one morning with a massive political hangover. Today, many Americans find themselves in the same uncomfortable position. Just as President Obama's uplifting words and bold promises once inspired exaggerated hopes, failed policy after failed policy have left us a nation of recovering Obamaholics. In this can't-put-it-down diatribe, award-winning journalist Craig S. Karpel alleges satirically-but proves with alarming facts-that voting for Obama was the result of a debilitating political addiction. Karpel guides us through a 12-step program for attaining "voting sobriety," and like any 12-step process, recovery begins with an admission that we have hit bottom and need to make amends. Thus we must admit to each other, and ourselves, that the Obama presidency isn't Obama's fault-it's ours. Rather than returning him to office, we the voters should be impeached for having elected him in the first place. Follow Karpel's 12 Step Guide for the Recovering Obama Voter, and get on the path to recovery-before November!
