The author, Craig Karpel writes that Obama voters' political addictions are so disorienting that to attain "voting sobriety" by Election Day they need to go through the 12-step program he has devised. Each step is designed to enable voters to understand how they succumbed to a particular addiction, and what they need to do to overcome it.
Noting the Obama campaign's emphasis on persuading voter to attend pro-Obama house parties, he urges readers to host and attend Alcoholics Anonymous-type meetings to "work the steps" by admitting their political addictions to each other and committing to go through "Democratic detox" and "Republican rehab."
The 12-Step Guide for the Recovering Obama Voter captures the mood of millions of Americans who are coming to regret voting for Obama in 2008 and won't be voting for him in November.
