Barack the Sock Puppet

    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 determent
    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 year 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 ?
  2. NO one tells Obama what to do or think.

    Bush, now there's a sock puppet
  3. ddefina


    True, but he had a slight backbone. He was a social liberal in republican clothing.
  4. Odd comment, since the knock on Bush was that he was stubborn and arrogant and wouldn't listen to dissenting opinion.

    The problem with Obama is that pretty much all he knew his entire life was far left radical propaganda, the kind that normal people brush off as kooky. He swallowed it so completely he didn't appreciate how crazy his longtime preacher and mentor Rev. Wright was. He was and is totally committed to the ACORN worldview, which demands radical redistribution of wealth. The idea pushed by the media that he was "post-racial" and "post-partisan" is nonsense. He is probably the most racist president we have had in our lifetimes. He sees everything in either racial or marxist class struggle terms. His idea of post-partisanship seems to involve everyone swallowing whatever nutty ideas he has whole without dissent. When faced with opposition, he immediately goes nuclear, demonizing his opponents and ascribing false positions to them.

    He has "one term president" written all over him, but that assumes he doesn't enlist 20 million illegals to vote for him or otherwise rig the election and that he will accept being voted out of office.
  5. Isnt it funny whenever anyone says anything bad about Obama,the democrats jump in with "What about Bush?"

    I remember the first time I heard Barrack Obamas name. I was flipping through the channels and saw him on Oprah. (funny because in the last 15 years, i've probably seen her show 3 times) I believe thats how he got his start. The brainwashed Oprahnites pushed him into popularity.

  6. Not only are we all now Keynesians we all are forced to be Psychiatrists ...

    Obama is what he is ... Wrong about just about everything. An incompetent buffoon, who has virtually no ability to lead.

  7. Thank God for Texas and the 2nd Amendment
  8. MarkBrown


    anyone who thinks for one minute that he was voted in by the public is crazy he was appointed by the banks to be president.

  9. I'm sure lots of people thought the same of fdr with the harm done by his disastrous "new deal".

    The whole nation succumbed to the Stockholm syndrome.
  10. "it is hard to believe that someone like Warren Harding ever made it to the White House. Harding did little in his political life except be nice to the right people and “look” presidential. He accomplished little on the domestic front, and his principal foreign policy initiative, the Washington Naval Disarmament Conference, was soon forgotten.

    Obama is the Warren Harding "effect."
