    Wall Street Journal Sizes up Obama - They've Got Him Figured Out

    A short article from the Wall Street Journal that needs to be read by every level headed American!!!

    A "deadly" article regarding Obama, at the Wall Street Journal, which today is the most widely circulated newspaper in America ..

    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 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, nearly a full 2 years into his first term, 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 has 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 ?"

    He couldn't have written it any better, but millions already know this imposter in the white house is a fraud. Problem is no rep. or senator has balls enough to even speak of this for fear of losing their high paid job with perks.

    Amen! And he continues to display his ineptness every day.

    Playing golf and filling out his NCAA brackets while the country, the middle east and Japan are in turmoil.

    "Wishing" the Lybian rebels will be successful while doing nothing as Quadafi beats the crap out of them.

    "Hoping" the country's budget problem will go away by itself while making budget cut proposals that one can only describe as comical.

    "Wishing" the immigration problem would go away while offering NO proposal to resolve it.

    "Hoping" that the energy crisis will go away while doing nothing to promote offshore and Alaskan drilling.

    The list of his failures as a leader goes on and on. I guess this is the "hope" he talked about in his campaign.

    This idiot is unquestionably the lamest President in the history of the United States. And there is a chance that minority groups, unions and the plain stupid will re-elect him to another term.

    Amazing.

    Dave

    I'm not surprised. I don't think those WSJ libs would ever print anything this critical of the President.

    The WSJ editorial pages are conservative by nature...just google it and you will get the same opinion...


    mrskeet: be warned, you will feel the wrath of Luckyman when he pops up on here and labels you a LIBTARD and saying how you stink from the high heavens,all because you called him out on some b.s. story. Then he will go into a temper tantrum with idiotic posts that makes most 2 year olds look like well behaved children. You may even be graced with the other blowhard, shelly, who after polishing the "knob" of Luckyman, will start in on you for being a perceived Obama supporter and Wisconsin teacher union rights advocate LOL

    I don't greatly object to what "Eddie Sessions" wrote, it just was not published in the Wall Street Journal.

    Hawk46 - Check out the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal. You may be pleasantly surprised.

    An article from the Wall Street Journal adds a lot of credibility for me. Much less so for an article on the email circuit.

    And what makes you think I am your friend?
