 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 
 anybody?) 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, 4 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.

 We laugh at the ventriloquist's dummy, but what do you do when the 
 dummy is President of the United States.
 We the people are coming!
