Barack and Michelle Obama have inked a $65 million deal for their memoirs (two books) with publisher, Penguin Random House. This publishing house is jointly owned by Bertelsmann Foundation (Germany) and Pearson PLC (UK). Bertelsmann Foundation, owning 53% in the joint venture, is not a commercial enterprise, but a politically engaged entity.
This amount is over four times the amount Bill Clinton received ($15 million), and six times the amount George W. Bush received ($10 million) — according to Fox News. The most likely reason is higher popularity of Obama abroad. Thus, for his service as the President of the United States, Obama received $3.2M in salary, and $65 million from foreign publishers, serving mostly foreign audiences. Is it surprising that he has not been faithful to his Oath to preserve and protect the Constitution?
