The Washington Post Hits Obama

Finally, the Washington Post speaks out on Obama! This is very brutal, timely though. As I’m sure you know, the Washington Post has a reputation for being extremely liberal. So, the fact that its editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama in its newspaper makes this a truly amazing event and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about Obama and his obvious socialist agenda are starting to trickle through the “protective wall” built around him by our liberal media.

I Too Have Become Disillusioned.

By Matt Patterson (Columnist – Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer”; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberal Dom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass – held to a lower standard – because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois ; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: the president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense.  It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.

    let the truth be known about Presedent Obama and the vail removed from the peoples eyes, but I believe he is not ignorant he was groomed for this position from the in side and was surrounded by associates with this kind of ideology that of a socialist with a marxist intent. We are at a very despert time in America as we who it! America must turn back to GOD.

    The Emperor has no clothes! A “pathological narcissistic” sitting in the Oval Office poses a greater threat to America than Russia ever did. If we do have an election in November and Ovomit is reelected, greater economic destruction lies ahead. If Ovomit is defeated, there could well be an “event” that enables him to declare Martial Law and lock America down with no change of power on January 20, 2013. Dangerous and interesting time we are living in.

      Meathead’s blog Sep 25th is a scary one – about an “Event” that would”require locking down America with martial law, and no change of power.” What can be done to counter that possibility? IDEAS FOLKS IN THE KNOW!

    Let’s just say this. I’ll put it as simple as I can. Obama couldn’t care less about what goes on on this country. What does he have to worry about if we run out of jobs. He and his family are set for life in sickness and health. All of the politicians are. All he does is spend, spend and spend. Where does that get us more taxes and more Government control, God help us!!!!!! Obama just does not get it. He has no idea what he’s doing as our President. I still do not understand how he got elected. However, I do know now that a lot of people who did vote for him in ’08 realize and are saying….”OH BOY, I THINK WE MIGHT HAVE MADE A BIG MISTAKE.” Well, it’s about time all of you admit to it. I do hope people will finally wake up the election is less then a month away. Let’s get Obama and all is people the heck out of the White House and let’s do it NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hear people from all over let’s put God back into America. Well, if Obama remains President then the only God that we have is Obama, such a scary idea. That article in the Washington Post couldn’t put in any better. I guess they now know that these past 4 years were a big mistake. So all I can say is GOD BLESS AMERICA…..Amen.

    • Marie says:

      Amen again! You are absolutely correct in every word you said! All I can say is God, I pray you have bo lose this election and that you bless Romney/Ryan and the USA!

    Oh thank God people might finally realize what a sham this Obama presidency is. I sincerely believe he was groomed for this position not to help the American people but to bring down America.
