The Real Barack Obama

By: Ronald Kessler
Michelle Obama’s comment that, for the first time in her adult life, she feels proud of America helps crystallize who Barack Obama is.
To be sure, the wife of a candidate is perfectly free to have views that are distinct from her husband’s. But on a matter that is so fundamental to one’s being as love of country, it is difficult to imagine that Michelle Obama would publicly twice make such a statement suggesting disdain for America unless she felt it comported with her husband’s views.
Equally important, her statement aligns perfectly with the hate-America views of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s minister, friend, and sounding board for more than two decades. On the Sunday following 9/11, Wright characterized the terrorist attacks as a consequence of violent American policies. Four years later, Wright suggested that the attacks were retribution for America’s racism.
“In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01,” Wright wrote in his church magazine Trumpet. “White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just ‘disappeared’ as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.”
Wright has been a key supporter of Louis Farrakhan, and in December, honored the Nation of Islam leader for lifetime achievement, saying he “truly epitomize[s] greatness.”
Farrakhan has repeatedly made hate-filled statements targeting Jews, whites, America, and homosexuals.
Those who think two of the closest people to Obama could publicly make anti-America statements unless Obama himself felt that way, are fooling themselves. To date, Obama has proven himself to be nothing more than a great orator, rendering the statements of those around him even more important in illuminating his true character and agenda. During his Senate career, he skipped 17 percent of the votes and sponsored only one bill that became law. That bill was to promote “relief, security, and democracy in the Democratic Republic of Congo.”
Bereft of official accomplishments, Obama has distinguished himself mainly by being against measures that protect American security, such as finishing the mission in Iraq. If we were to leave Iraq quickly, as Obama vows he would do, it would become a launch pad for al-Qaida attacks on the U.S.
Obama avoided voting on extending the Protect America Act, thus putting America at risk when immediate interception of terrorist communications is required. Last August, Obama voted against a measure that would have allowed the U.S. to continue to monitor overseas conversations of terrorists like Osama bin Laden without first obtaining a warrant.
If his radical vote had prevailed, bin Laden would have been given the same rights as Americans.
To this day, Obama has not distanced himself from most of Rev. Wright’s comments. In a statement supposedly issued to address the matter, Obama ignored the point that his minister and friend had spoken adoringly of Farrakhan and that Wright’s church was behind the award to the Nation of Islam leader. Instead, as outlined in a Jan. 17 Newsmax article, he disingenuously claimed he thought the magazine bestowed the award on Farrakhan for his efforts to rehabilitate ex-prisoners.
Neither Wright’s encomiums about Farrakhan nor the Trumpet article mentions ex-prisoners.
Similarly, after John McCain’s wife Cindy responded to Michelle Obama’s remarks by telling a Wisconsin rally, “I have, and always will be, proud of my country,” Barack Obama told a radio interviewer that his wife did not say what people think she said. He then proceeded to rewrite her comments, claiming that she had meant she was encouraged by the “large numbers of people” who have gotten involved in the political process. Michelle Obama then made a similar revision of her remarks.
In her speech in Milwaukee, Michelle Obama said flatly, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”
And what has been wrong with America up to now? That it gave Michelle the opportunity to attend Princeton and Harvard Law School? That it gave Barack Obama the chance to attend Columbia University and Harvard Law School and become a U.S. senator making more than $1 million a year from book royalties?
Was it that America stopped Nazi Germany from continuing to murder millions of Jews? That America has provided Africa and other countries with $15 billion to combat the spread of AIDS/HIV and that another $30 billion is on the way? That 46 percent of all Americans classified by the Census Bureau as poor own their own homes, 76 percent of them have air conditioning, and 75 percent of them have at least one car? Or that America allows us to express our views freely without fear of being put in jail, as is the case in Russia?
A lawyer, Michelle Obama is perfectly capable of expressing herself precisely. In fact, she spoke from a written speech.
Those who do not want to believe she meant what she said — and that Barack Obama could not be so close to Rev. Wright if he did not himself believe in much of what he has said — are in denial.
The real Barack Obama is starting to emerge, and for those of us who are grateful to America for everything it represents, it is not a pretty sight.

Lets just hope that either Clinton or Obama have good vice poresidents and sombody will take one for the team and take them out of office. I hate to see anybody die but I can't see either one of these people doing any good for the working class american and sadly enough I'd be willing to bet a pile of money that the weak minded "sheepole" of the US are dumb enough to buy into their BS and elect one of these loosers to office.


Wake the hell up Americans !!!

BJ,

Great job on that post. He sure seems to be a master a pulling the wool over the eyes of his followers. But to me he's just another ultra-left, America hater who would like to see this country become a socialists mecca. Well, those of us with a clue know how well the other countries are doing with that system.

John F. Kennedy once said,"The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all." How true that is today.

I can't believe that out of all the Democrats out there that this is best that they could come up with. Hillary and Barak? No wonder the Democratic party is so screwed up. The media is pushing the democrats so hard it's shamefull.
They keep bad mouthing Bush about the war but let me ask them this, how many attacks have we had on American soil since the war on terror began? It scares me that the American public can be this misinformed and even considering electing one these as our next president. Another thing that scares me is, what if Hillary and Barak decide to run together as president and vice president?:eek:

that is a great quote.....i have always said that there should be a qualifying test before people are allowed to vote in this country. i really do want to have faith that we will not elect someone with a name like Barrack Hussein Obama as president of the US. His skin color is the least of my concerns. it is his muslim upbringing and his socialist veiws that i dispise. lets hope we can muster the votes to defeat them both....AJ

Sadly we life long Republicans have "no one" to vote for. I can't in good faith vote for the liberal waffling McCain, fine man and war hero tho he is. Huckabee lacks the experience as did Romney, but I like that Huck is down to earth. I've cautioned my family against voting for the "screeching b.tch" of a Communist Billary Klinton. I cant imagine having her screeching at us for 8 yrs as her indecisive leftist Congress tries to make one rational decision. to sum it up this country is in deep doodoo for leadership.

At least Obama is educated, well spoken, easy to listen too, makes sense, and interviews well even when he's wrong, even if he is a Socialist. Unlike our current Pres he can carry on a three sentence converstaion without saying uh...uh...uh.

I guess we are left with "knowing your enemy" and keeping him in your focus. This may be the first time in 40 yrs I voted for a Dem for the Pres, a thought that gives me no measure of happiness. I look to the NRA for some guidance.. I bet Ike, Goldwater, and Reagan are rolling over in their graves.

one thing i have faith in McCain is that he will keep the war against terrorism going. the Dems can't wait to get the troops out of there. pretty much seals the deal for me. we had a president not too long ago that was a fine speaker, very well spoken. can't say i want to put another like him in there that's the most liberal senator in congress.

will Rudy's campaign go down as the worst strategy ever?
