Article from the Wall Street Journal – by Eddie Sessions:
"I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he ' s led a kind of
make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened
because at some point early on somebody or some group (George Soros
anybody?) took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white,
half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and
concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile
speaking skills could even put him in the White House.
In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry.
Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of 45?
"Dreams of My Father" was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years
old. The "Audacity of Hope" followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did
write them himself. There are some who think that his mentor and
friend, Bill Ayers, a man who calls himself a "communist with a small
' c ' " was the real author.
His political skills consisted of rarely voting on anything that
might be deemed controversial.. He went from a legislator in the
Illinois legislature to the Senator from that state because he had
the good fortune of having Mayor Daley ' s formidable political machine
at his disposal.
He was in the U.S. Senate so briefly that his bid for the presidency
was either an act of astonishing self-confidence or part of some
greater game plan that had been determined before he first stepped
foot in the Capital.. How, many must wonder, was he selected to be a
2004 keynote speaker at the Democrat convention that nominated John
Kerry when virtually no one had ever even heard of him before?
