Some of the speculation about Obama borders on the absurd. In fairness Obama has brought this on himself by failure to simply release his birth certificate and be truthful about his past. It is very doubtful that Obama was adopted as adoption by Muslims in Indonesia is rare and requires parents be of the same religion. The relationship was almost certainly step. Thus far there is no hard evidence to suggest
Obama was born in Kenya. The words President Biden the second stupidest man in the Senate after Col. Bernie Sanders moron from Vermont should stop that talk immediately.
Obama passes off a myth that he is from the heartland of America. This myth is that he is a son of Kansas. The truth is that he is the child of a naive far left radical and a man that almost certainly attempted some form of immigration fraud. Obama's father was married before and after his marriage to Obama's mother. His practice of bigamy in the US was a crime. By most accounts he was a rather nasty man who became an embittered alcoholic and had almost no contact with his son.
Barak was the son of privilege raised in private schools much like a poor man's version of Al "Little Lord Fauntleroy" Gore. Unlike Al Gore he just happened to have a communist mentor in Hawaii. We probably should not ask if Obama benefited from racial preferences in University admissions. One may read whatever one wishes into his refusal t release his transcripts. Obama was certainly not what the proponents of
affirmative action had in mind when they designed the program as his sole relation to
slavery in America was his mothers family owned some. Much has been played up that as
a biracial child he felt prejudice. All kids growing up feel prejudice and if that were the yardstick than a fat poor kid with acne likely faced more adversity than Obama ever did. Obama for his part likely parroted the angry black narrative of the far left that his professors expected.
This brings us to his twenty year membership in a racist crackpot church and association with a communist terrorist. Obama was raised by a naive far left mother
and was every bit a midwestern red diaper doper baby. He likely saw nothing wrong with Ayers then as his mothers family was on the fringes of the far left. His association with a hateful far left racist church is amusing considering Obama is every bit as privileged as Al Gore. What has he experienced in Prep schools surrounded by Biffs and Missys that justifies the narrative? His school may have lost a debate or two and his grandparents may have exposed him to Lawrence Welk but most far lefties are privileged sorts like Ayers himself. This may sound funny but one sees more authenticity in the more humble origins of a David Horowitz, Ronald Radosh or Prof Genovesse than in an Ayers or Obama. I do not think Horowitz ever went to a private school and Radosh went to the disgraceful Little Red School house but was the child of working class folk.
Obama has never held a real job and has skated through a life of privilege blessed with good timing and an over sized ego that will be his downfall. He is a weak candidate who benefited from a financial crisis and Clinton fatigue. He has gone through life as a community organizer running between cocktail parties at the homes of terrorists and a poverty pimp groups like ACORN.
We may say what we like about McCain who certainly held a real job and served his country. We know he was tortured by the same folks Ayers supported. McCain is too modest to point this out. Palin has held a real job and probably lived a life that resembled the person next door. What did Obama really do as a community organizer? What has he done as a senator? What has he said other than hope or change?
The economy will elect the next president. Those of you who think Obama will be an
American Chavez need to get a grip. He will have to move to the center to govern and blunt those on his left if he hopes to get re-elected. Saying hope and change ad nauseum does not work in the Whitehouse and I expect terrorists will test Obama early. The funny thing is those terrorists who mistake Obama for Gomer Kerry might be in for a rude surprise. Obama is more of a man of action and his ego will likely provide a very swift response. If we are lucky he will grow into the job unlike the pertptual child Bill Clinton or the fool Jimmy Bug Eyed Carter.
