WALL ST. JOURNAL SIZES UP OBAMA

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?

 

He outmaneuvered Hillary Clinton in primaries. He took Iowa by

storm. A charming young man, an anomaly in the state with a very

small black population, he oozed "cool" in a place where agriculture

was the antithesis of cool. He dazzled the locals. And he had an

army of volunteers drawn to a charisma that hid any real substance.

 

And then he had the great good fortune of having the Republicans

select one of the most inept candidates for the presidency since Bob

Dole. And then John McCain did something crazy. He picked Sarah

Palin, an unknown female governor from the very distant state of

Alaska . It was a ticket that was reminiscent of 1984 ' s Walter

Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro and they went down to defeat.

 

The mainstream political media fell in love with him. It was a

schoolgirl crush with febrile commentators like Chris Mathews swooning

then and now over the man. The venom directed against McCain and, in

particular, Palin, was extraordinary.

 

Now,  3 full years into his presidency, all of those gilded

years leading up to the White House have left him unprepared to be

President.. Left to his own instincts, he has a talent for saying the

wrong thing at the wrong time. It swiftly became a joke that he

could not deliver even the briefest of statements without the

ever-present Tele-Prompters.

 

Far worse, however, is his capacity to want to "wish away" some

terrible realities, not the least of which is the Islamist intention

to destroy America and enslave the West. Any student of history

knows how swiftly Islam initially spread. It knocked on the doors of

Europe, having gained a foothold in Spain …

 

The great crowds that greeted him at home or on his campaign "world

tour" were no substitute for having even the slightest grasp of

history and the reality of a world filled with really bad people with

really bad intentions.

 

Oddly and perhaps even inevitably, his political experience, a

cakewalk, has positioned him to destroy the Democrat Party ' s hold on

power in Congress because in the end it was never about the Party.

It was always about his communist ideology, learned at an early age

from family, mentors, college professors, and extreme leftist friends

and colleagues.

 

Obama is a man who could deliver a snap judgment about a Boston

police officer who arrested an "obstreperous" Harvard

professor-friend, but would warn Americans against "jumping to

conclusions" about a mass murderer at Fort Hood who shouted "Allahu

Akbar." The absurdity of that was lost on no one. He has since

compounded this by calling the Christmas bomber "an isolated extremist"

only to have to admit a day or two later that he was part of an al

Qaeda plot.

 

He is a man who could strive to close down our detention facility at

Guantanamo even though those released were known to have returned to

the battlefield against America . He could even instruct his

Attorney General to afford the perpetrator of 9/11 a civil trial when

no one else would ever even consider such an obscenity. And he is a

man who could wait three days before having anything to say about the

perpetrator of yet another terrorist attack on Americans and then

have to elaborate on his remarks the following day because his first

statement was so lame.

 

The pattern repeats itself. He either blames any problem on the Bush

administration or he naively seeks to wish away the truth.

 

Knock, knock. Anyone home? Anyone there? Barack Obama exists only

as the sock puppet of his handlers, of the people who have maneuvered

and manufactured this pathetic individual ' s life.

 

When anyone else would quickly and easily produce a birth

certificate, this man spent over a million dollars to deny access

to his. Most other documents, the paper trail we all leave in our

wake, have been sequestered from review. He has lived a make-believe

life whose true facts remain hidden.

 

We laugh at the ventriloquist ' s dummy, but what do you do when the

dummy is President of the United States of America ?
