Extras - Evidence of a more awake media and people

Finally, the very people who scoffed at the information I already had, knew, and continued to make sure it was true, are the ones sending ME this regurgitated, yet appreciated information, as I see their email contact lists are longer than the Constitution the "Prez" is trying to jilt, himself.. I don't care how they wake up, as long as they DO. Thank you for validating my warnings knowing there's no need for me to say it..... I'll never point out their self acknowledged awareness of the OBVIOUS....

 Obama: The Affirmative Action President by Matt Patterson (columnist - Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

 Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, 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. What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama's oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people -- conservatives included -- ought now to be deeply embarrassed. The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that's when he has his teleprompter in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all.

***Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth -- it's all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.*

 And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly? In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job.

*When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.*

>>I can't hold back on this last statement "When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office" -----  MAKE SENSE?!!! So all this does is make sense of the OBVIOUS erosion of Liberty and Prosperity that has taken place for over THREE SOLID in our face, YEARS!?  Because in short
YOUR "president is a small and small minded man with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle the job"...     CLOSE, but you're still SO FAR from "Getting It"...   He is not small minded, he is too grandiose in his mind, Massive minded.  His focus is narrow, shallow, and determined, but he is NOT lacking intellect to handle THE JOB he and his sponsors want him to do.  In fact it is the PEOPLE who voted him in with the small minds and lacking of intellect who couldn't handle the simple job of being a responsible, informed voter.
YOU FAILED YOUR JOB.. The fraud who duped you did so because he DOES have the intellect to have done so with such ease.   And NOW, you've read an entire newspaper article?!!! You brilliant minds, you should work for the C.I.A. .. The Secret Service wouldn't take you, you already FAILED the test.

Affirmative action pre-elect Senator is more like it.   He got into the Senate on the coat tails of a scandal leaving that seat open to the next schmoozing charlatan with a D next to his name, as in Demagogue , or Democrat.    The affirmative action explanation and understanding goes so far back, it isn't even mentioned anymore, it's a given, as much as it is a 'given' that this guy is a Radical Rabble Rousing Lunatic for the Far Left Side of the Moon.  An Anti-American, whitey hating, crack addicted, malignant narcissist with so much resentment, self loathing, envy, and vengeful rage in him, once unharnessed should you not truly get it and make sure every one of you and your dead friends and family don't vote him in again, would put us all on the receiving end of that wrath that would make Hitler's bipolar fits for the Holocaust seem like a frat boys' prank.

You are just getting this piece shoved into your tiny brains?  You still don't get it.  It's over and beyond this trivial Affirmative Action theory you brainiacs came up with.  Good Lord, and if you think Obama lacks intellect, you're in need of a CLUE.  Although I doubt if it was handed to you on a Silver Platter you'd know what to do.  Obviously information takes until it's too late to even process for you.  Pathetic USEFUL IDIOTS.
