Amazon Announces “The Kindle Singles Interview” with President Barack Obama

31 July 2013

From Amazon’s Media Room:

Amazon.com today announced “The Kindle Singles Interview” with President Barack Obama—an exclusive in-depth interview with the President about the economy and the increasing need for government programs that he believes can make a difference. Yesterday President Obama visited Amazon’s fulfillment center inChattanooga, Tenn., where he discussed proposals to jumpstart private sector job growth and make America more competitive. He also sat down with Kindle Singles editor David Blum to answer questions regarding his economic policies. The interview, which is free for all customers, is available now at www.amazon.com/kindlesingles.

“The interview with President Obama, pegged to his latest speech on jobs and the economy in Chattanooga, focuses on the President’s personal connection to the economic pressures that now face millions of Americans,” said David Blum, editor of Kindle Singles.

In this Kindle Singles Interview, President Barack Obama decries the “change in culture” that has altered our view of the American Dream. “There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” the President said. “Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.” He addresses the jobs issue from a personal perspective, reflecting on how his own life might have been different had he not experienced success in politics. “I could picture myself being a good teacher,” the President mused.

  1. OMG They are going to froth at the mouth!! LOL

  2. Dear God, and Obama is supposed to be on the side of the liberal, high-brow NYC elite! It will be like the great depression, suits will be flying out of high rise windows.

  3. “…and the increasing need for government programs that he believes can make a difference.”

    Yeah, whatever.

    (but I read the headline, had a good chuckle, and thought ‘well done, Amazon!’)

  5. See? Clearly in Amazon’s pocket. 😉

  6. PG, I <3 your commentary. Pithy.

    And I would bet Obama/staff writer does receive royalties, or is donating the proceeds.

    Two benefits to this. It will drive N.Y. nuts and it sounds like an interesting interview.

  7. This will send New York over the edge.

    Is there an edge they haven’t gone over yet?

    • No, wait…! I speak Troll. Let me translate.

      What Peter is trying to say is that he loves kittens. They’re cute and fluffy, and well, kittens. And he wants to share that with all of us here at PG’s place. Thanks, Peter–we really needed that ray of sunshine today.

  9. “The interview, which is free for all customers, is available now at http://www.amazon.com/kindlesingles.”

    “[F]ree for all”? What could that possibly mean?
