Wall Street Journal Sizes Up Obama  
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 Alan Caruba:  
"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 (George Soros, maybe? or Frank Marshall Davis??) 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 House 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 out-maneuvered 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, 6 full years into his presidency, 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 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.
Even his wife has mentioned they visited the country of his birth, Kenya. You did note she did not accompany him on the trip to Saudi Arabia on which he actually bowed to the king. Being a muslim required him to do so and that same faith prevented him from taking her with him."
We laugh at the ventriloquist's dummy, but what do you do when the dummy is President of the United States.

Alan Caruba has never written for the WSJ.

And, yes, this is a hit piece of no substance.

Oh no, not a "deadly" article! Someone tell the secret service!

The WSJ has been debased since Rupert Murdoch purchased it in 2007. It's now mostly a puff piece for the excessively wealthy.

As much as Murdoch loves to have his publications indulge in muck and mire and fantasy junk "stories," I think even this is too stupid for his publishing empire.

Please: these yobs are still whining about Obama's birf sirtifekeet, allegedly being born in Kenya, and being a "secret" Muslim? Boy. Talk about not having a life.

BTW, W Bush used to bow low to the Saudi Princes (plus kiss them on the lips & hold their hands). Does this mean that the Bush Crime Syndicate are all "secret" Moozelins as well?

Shazam! Let's get the word out about JEB being a Moozelin, why don't we???? Guess we won't see Alan Curaba opining about that anytime soon, will we? Of course, JEB isn't dusky-hued, so there's that.

Even the Wall Street Journal wouldn't publish something as poorly written and amateurish as this piece.

Oh, and from Wikipedia:

Alan Caruba (b. Oct. 9, 1937) is an American public relations counselor and freelance writer who is a frequent critic of environmentalism, Islam, homosexuality[1] and research on global warming. He has been ridiculed countless times and many of his foundings have said to have been fake.

And so... what is the point of this diatribing screed?

At this point, even if you loath Obama for good reasons (not ridiculous fantasies like these), so what? Obama's term in office is almost over. It's highly unlikely - and would be stupidly & wastefully costly - to impeach him now, unless there was some REAL reason to so.

So what's the point of this? Other than to be a racist bigoted anti-Muslim jerk? Oh, guess I just answered my own question. In other words: to revel in all that it means to be a conservative in the USA. And of course, offer no real solutions to anything.

gruaud said...


Caruba wrote this drivel back in 2010.

Agent86 said...

Let's see....it's 2015 and this was written in 2010. Boy those Conservatives are right there with timely information no? It's probably on it's 10th or 12th round also as that's their other MO. Just because you repeat a lie over and over doesn't make it any more true.

Obama is pretty much a tool and I have enough real reasons to take issue with him so why is it that Conservatives feel the need to manufacture shit? SMH

Mike, you are knocking it out of the fucking PARK with your spelling. Way to contribute, dude.

No articles you couldn't plagiarize? So...spelling again? Awesome.

Mike Hawk said...

Not a spelling error, but rather, wrong word choice.

What a dumb ass you are. lmao

1) loath (adj): http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/loath

2) loathe (v): http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/loathe

Some folks just don't have much of a grasp on the English language. Tis a pity.

Michele Obama did not say "the country of his birth." She said that Kenya was his "home country"---meaning the country that his ancestors came from.

Obama was born in HAWAII:

Here is the confirmation by the former governor of Hawaii, Linda Lingle, a Republican, that says that Obama was born in Hawaii, in Kapiolani Hospital:

Have to disagree, smrstrauss. If he weren't foreign born he wouldn't be building all those FEMA prisons under old WalMarts in Texas.

d said...

The hilarity is that very few people even in Nov 2007 thought that a man could be elected with the name Barack Hussein Obama. The idea that he was "groomed" decades before is so far removed from reality. What kind of idiot would pick Obama as their Manchurian?

smrstrauss said...

Re: "Even his wife has mentioned they visited the country of his birth, Kenya. "

Answer: Obama was born in HAWAII, as shown by his birth certificate (short form and long form) AND the confirmation of the facts on that birth certificate by the officials of both parties in Hawaii AND the birth notices in the Hawaii newspapers AND the teacher who wrote home to her father, named Stanley, after hearing of the birth in Hawaii of a child to a woman named Stanley AND the birth notices sent to the Hawaii newspapers by the DOH of Hawaii in 1961 (and ONLY the DOH could send birth notices to that section of the newspapers, and it only did so for births in Hawaii). There is even a note from a INS inspector who checked on Obama's father's residence status and wrote: "They have one child, born Honolulu."

AND (1) the Kenyan government has said that Obama was NOT born in Kenya; (2) the US INS report for the year Obama was born shows that only 21 people came to the USA from Kenya, and all but ONE of those came by ship (and there were no regular ships from Kenya to Hawaii or vice versa), and it would have been EXTREMELY rare for an American woman to have traveled abroad during the last few months of pregnancy at the time---due to the risk of stillbirths; (3) birther sites LIED when they said that Obama's Kenyan grandmother said that he was born in Kenya, but the fact is that she really said that he was born IN HAWAII in three interviews (of which birther sites showed only a part of one, carefully cutting off the tape recordings on their sites just before she was asked where he was born and replied: "in Hawaii, where his father was studying at the time"---and they did not show the other two interviews AT ALL); (4) The term "home country" that Michelle used refers to the country where ancestors come from, not to the geographic location of birth.
