    Default With all the 'liberals' DOING the bashing...

    ...here's some from the other side, just for 'equal time'. UB





    Wall Street Journal Sizes up Obama -







    A short article from the Wall Street Journal:


    A "deadly" article regarding Obama, at the Wall Street Journal, which today is the most widely circulated newspaper in America. (WSJ is the only newspaper in America with more than 2 million daily readers and the

    only newspaper among the top 25 in the country to actually have readership growth).


    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 year into his first term, all of those gilded years leading up to the White House have left him repared 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?"

    OH NO. Caught again on something I can only wish was true eh? And to think I was just about to idolize Eddie Sessions for saying what I wish I had said.

    If only the story had been about Sarah Palin, or Tom Delay, nobody would have even bothered to check with that great left wing search core called SNOPES.

    I would have checked it if it sounded unreasonable enough. I don't like untruths, no matter which side they come from.

    Story may be fabricated but this point of the story is right on.

    Obama has benefitted by Affirmative Action. Partick J of RTF use to refer to him as the Community Organ Grinder. Then, a one term Senator that spent most of his time campaigning for President. Any wonder why he has been such a piss-poor President?

    GOP better get thier sheet together or we'll be stuck with his second term!

    The only lie is that it was written by Eddie Sessions and published in the WSJ. Everything else was correct.
