    This very truthful and precious artilce by Shelby Steele tells so many truthful concerns about our very weak and unknowing and uncaring 44th president Obama.
    stated in the article is the fact that voters "Chose TO SEE what was not there and refused to see what was there, all to escape the stigma not of stupidity but of racsim."
    " Mr. Obama won by achieving a symbolic bond with the American people :He would labor not to show himself ,and Americans would labor not to see him.
    "Mr. Obama became arguably the least known man ever to step into the American presidency."----end of quotes from WSJ article.

    You must read this telling article to understand how America was deceived into electing such a weak ,yet radical leftist. One hell bent on destroying our economy , resulting in the destruction of our nation.
    Either through his personal ignorance or his desire to destroy Captialism, Obama in his first year has promoted ideas and ideals foreign to Americans from day one of our founding. He is very slow to react to every national emergency , it took him three days to speak after a terrorist attack on a aircraft landing in Detroit. The murder of eight American Civilians still await some word from Obama , SHAMEFUL.
    His heart and mind seems to be on his GOLF while our Military and Civilians are blown up in battle , Our Commander- in -Chief needs to be in D.C. , not on a putting green in Hawaii. They are dying while Obama appears not to be trying.
    His SORDID handling of his Health Care CONTROL SCAM , working with his partners in crime , led by Harry Reid, set a LOW mark , even for a democrat controlled Congress.America is covered in shame due to the surely UNCONSTITUTIONAL acts of our president and his democrat senators whom reacted like puppets as Obama and his soiled henchmen pulled the strings.
    The year 2009 closes in filth and shame as a result on the mess created by the democrats. hopefully 2010 will come to an end in Glory and A NEW DAY , as radical leftist in our Congress will be kicked out of office in huge numbers.
    In 2010 , liberal democrats and liberal republicans , and liberal independents must be defeated and replaced by CONSERVATIVES , regardless of party. In 2010 and 2012 , America must vote Principles over party, CONSERVATIVE PRINCIPLES. Then in 2012 , WE throw out the radical leftist , America's 2008 MISTAKE and return SANITY to our FEDERAL GOVERNMENT . A SANE Federal Government has been lacking since the days of President Ronald Reagan!!
    Replace the FIBBER with the Conservative Policies of the GIPPER!!
    SAVE AMERICA!!

    I suscribe to the WSJ, I receive it daily. I read the very profound article in the Dec , 30 , 2009 Opinion Page A 17.
    Earlier this year I quit my local "Florida Today", a liberal rag and started taking HOME DELIVERY of the WSJ. A NEWSPAPER worth READING!!
    FAIR and BALANCED.
    You may be able to pul this article up on WSJ online, I do not know. It is a lengthy article that explains how this jerk snuck into office.

    good luck, "ALWAYS", Not for just a day , not for just a year , but for "ALWAYS"

    When someone tries that hard to tell me how true the article is before I've even read it, I don't bother continuing.

    A word to the wise.

    while the OP was a little over the top, it is a good article.
    you should consider checking it out.

    Damn...Little Acorn, I do believe that you've dealt a 'ROYAL FLUSH' to that hysterical topic title and I'm very, very proud of you :cool:

    It's so nice to read some rational thinking adult post an intelligent response to the otherwise mental hysteria that rolls off of this authors finger tips [​IMG]

    So no thoughts on the article then ? Too bad.

    Take this...


    now you can certainly argue that he seemed to eschew unpopularity in his stance over the war but you could also make a case that this was a calculated move to rop in the fringe while not antagonizing the rest (he did vote to pay for it after all).

    I think it leaves off one very significant point that Obama was a pre-fab polititian. Not exactly sure who manufactured him as yet but its clear as can be to me that it was someone not himself. For example why would he as a junior senator be the 2nd most stroked congress critter by Fannie ?

    But if none of that peaks your interest then to each his own.

    Ok. Let's assume Steele is right and Obama really only cares about doing what's popular and has no strong convictions of his own. While campaigning, two of his main platforms were that he would overhaul the nation's health care, and that he would dramatically reduce the nation's carbon footprint. Since being elected, both of these issues have become significantly less popular for a variety of reasons, but mostly because of the economic crisis. The new issue that everyone cares about - that everyone has cared about more than anything else for the last six months - is job creation. If Obama really only cared about being popular, then why didn't he give up on his push for health care reform and climate change reform when public opinion turned against these issues and focus on jobs instead? These seem like clear and very significant examples to me of him holding onto principles even when they do become unpopular (in health care he has clearly spent lots of political capitol recently - he has not yet done as much on climate change, but it certainly seems he is leaning that way in the future). Whether you agree with him on these principles is, of course, a different issue.

    Gee.....you "conservatives" are capable of reading-his-mind (when it's most-"convenient"), yet.....you're incapable of doing a thorough-job-of-it.

    It's no wonder you folks are so confused.

    :rolleyes:

    Please.

    You "conservatives" are (consistently) telling everyone you know what others are thinking....and, you call Libs, liars?

    That makes sense, to you, huh?

    Obama's agenda is to DESTROY CAPITALISM and our FREE MARKET ECONOMY.
    Using his false man made Global Warming agenda to TRANSFER our NATIONS WEALTH from the DOERS to THE TAKERS. Obama is out to DESTROY AMERICA as his fascist policies and czars, and radical leftist clowns blindly follow.
    Yet, Obama himself , lives like a Monarch, Golfing , as his troops die , while domestic air flights are attacked in American air space, while American Flaged cargo ships are attacked at sea by terrorist, Obama , continues to Play Golf in Hawaii, unconcerned as to the deaths , waiting days and weeks to even verbally responding to deadly terrorists attacks.
    I thought G.W. Bush was weak at times but Obama is WEAK, Lacks Confidence, and needs serious instructions on how to be an EFFECTIVE AMERICAN PRESIDENT, GOLF BE DAMNED!! That is if he is at all interested in protecting America. As for me , I doubt that he is! KENYA you see why I think this way? 2010, looks bad for America , November elections seem one hundred years away, and then its only just a STARTING POINT in SAVING AMERICA from OBAMAISM!! HAPPY NEW YEAR, just in case!
