When You Ride Alone You Ride with bin Laden

"After September 11, when Bill Maher offended easily-offended people with a widely (and in many cases, deliberately) misunderstood remark, Ari Fleischer said that people need to watch what they say and do. In this very funny but ultimately serious, provocative but truly patriotic book, Bill prescribes what Americans can do to defend our nation. And please put this blurb as far away from Ann Coulter's as possible." - Al Franken

"Bill Maher rides alone daily but it is a hilarious, incisive trip. Maher versus bin Laden? Take Bill, give the points!" - Bill O'Reilly

"Bill Maher has the courage to speak his mind - no matter what the consequences - something you can't say about most people these days. And he's damn funny! Now, more than ever, the country needs his outrage. Agree or disagree with him, there is no question that what he has written in this book should be front and center in the great national debate and I, for one, am thrilled that this cantankerous s.o.b. is still there doing battle for the republic we all love." - Michael Moore

"Bill Maher loves America, hates conventional thinking, and, despite his curmudgeonly image, has a heart of gold. In the war on terrorism, we could use a little less tolerance and sensitivity and a little more manly anger. In this book, Bill leads the way hilariously." - Ann Coulter

Barack Obama Speeches

Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on August 4, 1961. His father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a citizen of Kenya and his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, was from Wichita Falls, Kansas. Obama, Jr., graduated from Columbia in 1983 with a B.A. in political science and he earned a law degree from Harvard Law School in 1991 where was he elected the first black president of the Harvard Law Review.

After serving one term as a U.S. Senator from Illinois, he won the contentious Democratic Party nomination for president in 2008 over rival Hillary Clinton. His later win over Republican John McCain in the November general election made him the first African-American president in United States history. His initiatives as president have included the health care reform bill signed in 2010, and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act signed into law the same year. Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Obama's first book, The Dreams of My Father was a critically acclaimed memoir first published in 1995. It documents his early childhood, his struggles with identity and race, and follows his life up to his entry into Harvard Law School. The audiobook edition of the memoir narrated by Obama won him a Grammy Award in 2006 for Best Spoken Word Album.

The Audacity of Hope was his second book and a number one best seller on the New York Times list in 2008. This book serves as a look into then-Senator Obama's core values and political beliefs. He announced his candidacy for president less than three months after the book's publication. The audiobook version of The Audacity of Hope won another Grammy Award for Obama in 2008.

The audio book Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters is a children's book structured as a letter to Obama's two daughters. It tells the stories of 13 famous Americans including George Washington, Martin Luther King, Jr., and astronaut Neil Armstrong. It was written shortly before Obama became president in 2009 and proceeds are being donated to the children of killed and disabled U.S. service personnel.

LearnOutLoud.com also features a large collection of Obama's most important speeches on audio, along with podcasts, video interviews, debates and much more.
