Samuel Wurzelbacher became a key figure in the 2008 presidential election, when, scarcely three weeks before election day, he was captured on video confronting candidate Barack Obama about his tax policy. He earned the nickname “Joe the Plumber.”

Since then he has become something of an “everyman” folk hero for the conservative cause. Wurzelbacher has written a book explaining the values he stands for — it’s called “Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream.”

Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign mantra is “change,” but one Washington journalist challenges Obama’s claim to be a reformer. National Review reporter David Freddoso says his reporting found that Obama is no reformer at all, but just a garden-variety ultra-liberal, whose alliances with controversial figures like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers are more troublesome than Obama wants voters to think they are. But Freddoso argues, in his book “The Case Against Barack Obama,” that the Senator gets a free ride from an enamored, liberal media.

April 6th, 2008

Barack Obama was born to a Kenyan father and an American mother in 1961, but his parents divorced when he was just two years old. Obama has said his father was little more than a myth to him, at the time of the elder Obama’s death in 1982.

Just before he went off to law school, Obama traveled to Kenya to learn more about his father, and to try and put perspective on his mixed-race heritage. The result was his book “Dreams From My Father,” first published in 1995. That’s when Eye on Books talked with him.
