Many times we have been lectured by the White House to leave President Obama’s wife and daughters alone because they are not “public figures.”

Except, of course, when they are needed to…

hawk People magazine

…reach the all-important Access Hollywood demographic

shill for Obamacare

…flog the FLOTUS anti-obesity campaign

promote Parade magazine

spice up a Gulf swim photo-op

…and now, sell books for dad’s contractually-obligated children’s book

As part of the book deal then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., inked in 2004, Random House today announced the publication of a children’s book by the president, “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters.”

The book will be released on November 16 – roughly two weeks after the midterm elections — with a 500,000-copy first printing. …

The book will be published by Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers and is part of the three-book, $1.9 million deal that then-Sen. Obama reached with Random House through his powerful attorney Bob Barnett.

The announcement about the book urging children to pursue their dreams comes just as Obama prepares to broadcast his second back-to-school speech to schoolchildren — prime book-buying targets — today striking the same theme.

“Of thee I sing” — or “Of ME I sing?”


Heh. Doug Powers comments: “He’s also working on a motivational book entitled “Who Moved My Teleprompter?”
