The State Department bought $70,000 worth of Obama books

Now that is a Stimulus Program!  ObamaBooks with ObamaBucks for Christmas.  I thought the Democrats were all about separation of Church and state, so how is it that the Government is Buying Obama’s Audacity of Hope for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.  That sounds like the establishment of an Obama Religion.

The State Department has bought more than $70,000 worth of books authored by President Obama, sending out copies as Christmas gratuities and stocking “key libraries” around the world with Dreams from My Father
more than a decade after its release.

The U.S. Embassy in Egypt, for instance, spent $28,636 in August 2009 for copies of Mr. Obama’s best-selling 1995 memoir. Six weeks earlier, the embassy had placed another order for the same book for more than $9,000, federal purchasing records show.

About the same time, halfway around the world, the U.S. Embassy in South Korea had the same idea and spent more than $6,000 for copies of The Audacity of Hope

One month later, the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, spent more than $3,800 for hardcover copies of the Indonesian version of Mr. Obama’s “The Audacity of Hope,” records show.
