When you read this you may feel Oh so Sad for the Man and the US The Washington Times Actually Printed this.

The Washington Post actually printed this about Obama....

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 testscores 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 ofwhich was devoted to his presidential ambitions. He left no academic
legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator.

...to be accurate.

Was NEVER in the Washington Post

Snopes says it originally appeared in American Thinker. It was published in 8/11 and written by someone who occasionally submits opinion pieces to the WaPo, among others.

The Post would NEVER...and I mean NEVER...publish this.

Originated here?

thank you for the Washington Times link

I'm surprised the article was received so well in N.Y. Maybe it's a Conservative publication?

true . . .

and the same thing can be said for Bush, aside from the fact that this does seem like a set-up, using affirmative action.

A good friend of *ours* who is black once lamented that he wasn't sure whether he was successful because he was black or because he was good--

He WAS a hard-working, talented man, but still--

TOO wrong.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

This left/right paradigm is like a small, and largely

insignificant sub-plot in a story that is much bigger.

History will most likely look back at how silly the masses were for thinking that Obama had any real power at all. As the masses argued over which figure head did the tyrants bidding, they missed the point that they are still ruled by tyrants.

This article just perpetuates one of the greatest distractions the world has ever known.

Plug in any one of the 'unPaul' three... it reads the same!

Plug in any one of the three un-Paul's... it reads the same!

And so it shall be as they once again cannibalize and self-destruct what had been the closest party to the founders!... all to prevent, rather than build on, freedom and limited government. All to stop the exposure and eventual arrest of the Fed and it's corrupt criminal profiteers!

How far they have come in destroying the foundations! They have corrupted the masses who are so willing to beg for a king to rule over them in spite of the clearest of Biblical warnings!

Focus on the battle at hand! It is exactly from that fight the party is hoping to distract you! They see the hand writing on the wall and are doing what instinct tells all criminals and men devoid of principle and good moral character will do... hide the truth, fight and rail against those who shine the light of truth upon their perfidy, and do so with their real limited numbers, their minority, focused on the large numbers of sheeple they have brought into the fray as simple minded delegates!

The day of reckoning has come! The day of sheeple waking to truth has come. They will in increasing numbers fail to bite the hook and swallow the pill. They will respond to truth from the 'mouth of the babes' of liberty, the Ron Paul patriots who are awakening.

These winter soldiers will gain an increasing respect as the facts come out, as the Santorum minions find out Romney has co-opted their ideal mythical candidate; as their mythological giant becomes the tyrant, and as they learn the feeling of being politically violated, at last!

It will be painful. More than one has reported feeling ashamed to have supported McCain, and then, Santorum, before having been awakened!

Liberty is winning as we win delegates and as those delegates show up in wintertime!

The once lost hope of real freedom is spreading after being ignited! There is no greater fuel than tyrant raped serfs to catch that spark, ignite into flame, and spread!

I'm not sure

which I'm more shocked by; what it reveals, which is spot on accurate, or by the source from which the revelations are exposed.

To understand how this may have gotten pass the senior editor at the Post, one only needs to follow the money. Who owns/controls the Post?

Bibi's friends do NOT want an Obama 2nd term as it derails their plans for an attack on Iran and the expansion of settlements in the West Bank as well as a continuation of their apartheid policies against the Palestinians.

Netanyahu has a shadow campaign that is intended to be a factor in defeating Obama and electing a Republican in his place. He opposed Obama’s early demand to freeze settlements on the West Bank as a precondition for reviving the peace process, a process since the Oslo Accord that Netanyahu has attempted to stall or sabotage, despite his signing of the Wye Agreement under pressure from President Clinton. Since his adamant stand against the settlement freeze, Netanyahu has undermined every effort to engage the peace process. He appears dead set on consolidating Greater Israel, or what many Israelis call “Judea and Samaria,” and has signaled a strong desire to attack Iran.

By all accounts, Netanyahu’s personal chemistry with Obama is toxic. Obama bristles at his belligerence. But Netanyahu’s hostility has reaped rewards from him, having stopped the peace process in its tracks. Netanyahu’s rejectionism of the peace process has put Obama on the defense. Most of the US Jewish establishment has remained a bulwark for Bibi’s policies. Obama, meanwhile, has been forced to declare America’s “unshakable bond” with Israel, even as Bibi thwarts Obama’s initiatives and attacks him in the Israeli press.

Do I feel sad for Obama? Hell no! He has done well financially as he has about $11 billion on deposit at the Vatican Bank for his compliance. He's part of the Bush criminal cabal that has been systematically raping this country for two decades or more. The very same Bushes' and associates who are the primary suspects in the criminal conspiracy that orchestrated 9/11.

Sad? I say hang um; hang um all...

Obama is not the problem...

This article makes sense only if you ignore the fact that Obama is a puppet president, and his incompetence is irrelevant, because like Bush, who too was incompetent, he isn't calling the shots, his handlers are. His policies are not his own, he is the brand attached to the policies, which have been drafted by very intelligent, very evil people who wish to demolish our liberties.

Obama® is not the source of our problems, just like Romney® won't be if he is in office. Its the people pulling the strings of the president who create the policies that erode the country.

Also, read this article from the perspective of Obama supporters. They will see this as an attack from racist white media, and it will further galvanize their support for Obama. He's using the civil rights angle in the media right now with the Trayvon/Zimmerman thing, even though he has no jurisdiction in local violent crime, he claims he'll "get to the bottom of it". His marketing team are working full force to promote his brand.

Ron Paul is the only one who isn't a registered trademark of the global elite. The longer we waste our energy attacking the puppets of this "2 party system" which is an utter illusion of choice, the longer the people behind the curtain continue their fascist reign over us.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Well said!

Well said!

What you said is so true.

and I am trying to get my friend to understand that Obama is not the problem , he is NOT making any decisions. My friend thinks the problem is Obama but Obama's handlers are the problem. If someone would replace Obama they would be handled by the same people, this is the most difficult thing to get people to realize.

The people we see are NOT running the country, the movers and shakers are behind the scenes running a Globalist Agenda.

Getting rid of Obama will not get of the problem, it will just have a new face.

I think articles are being written on purpose to promote division and to keep people from any real discussions and coming together. It is divide and conquer and it seems to work every time, unfortunately.

How true

it is. That is one reason for the dumbing down of society. Great article.

I appreciate this article,

however, there are plenty of laws trying to be passed like SOPA and PIPA that are trying to impose internet censoring/shutdown for "piracy" and "copy right laws." Best to set an example and post 3 paragraphs and link the rest. If you happen to not like the site you are linking to, and don't want the site to get traffic from the dailypaul, simply replace "http://" with "hxxp://." IMHO

Tough Artcile

Very surprised of the courage to write such words. I'm not an Obama hater, but it does seem that he isn't really the one coming up with all this socialist agenda - he is just the conduit for his backers to make America even more socialistic. So Socialistic that I doubt we will ever be rid of it. This is the consequence of greed. The GOP had their chance to really make a difference for the middle class and poor, but dropped the ball.
