    Washington Post on Obama

    As I'm sure you know, the Washington Post Newspaper has always had a reputation for being extremely liberal, so the fact that their Editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama in their newspaper makes this a truly amazing event and a news story in and of itself. Finally, the truth about our radical President's agenda is starting to trickle through the protective walls built by our liberal media.


    Matt Patterson (columnist for the Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

    Government & Society
    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 liberaldom 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.

    Lacks the courage, judgement, and experience too. And yet his numbers are not too far below 50 in the polls, with such poor economic numbers. Amazing.

    What a sad, but true commentary. What in the hell did we do? This is just how history will treat Barack Hussein Obama.

    Obama can believe he was competent, he can believe whatever the fuck he wanted. The problem is why are people so stupid that they thought he was up to the task?

    This is what fair minded people have been saying all along.

    Is the NY Times now going to write an article about how the WP is being right wing whack jobs?

    Unfortunately Obama isn't who he said he was and is who we said he was.

    AS I'VE repeated on this board SEVERAL TIMES!!!

    "which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves"

    White voters NEVER wanted to consider themselves "racist" and while they KNEW Obama wasn't qualified, wasn't skilled, didn't have experiences the majority of votes for Obama were whites and the majority of whites voted out of NOT wanting to feel GUILT voted for Obama .. i.e. they didn't want to think themselves "racist"!
    And the sad fact is these Obama voters are going to vote again for Obama because they can't admit it was a mistake and if it was a mistake was it because Obama failed as a black? They won't accept that!
    UNfortunately for our country Obama's incompetency has created some dangerous courses and HOPEFULLY there will be as the polls show that during 2008 44% of whites voted but 2012 polls are showing 38% of the voters will once again vote for Obama... but it won't be enough!!!
