There Are Other Words For It

In the company of Obama supporters, it's called "inventing" oneself:

Look at how much Barack Obama had to figure out. I mean, he’s born who he is, he can look in the mirror; but it must have been extraordinarily confusing to have this father who was a ghost, a myth, a collection of stories that he barely knew, and by the way, were highly unreliable. He spent 10 days with his father during his conscious life. He grew up in Honolulu and went to a highly privileged school where there were a couple of other black students, and in a place with no black people around, except for the occasional soldier on the basketball court or at a party. So, where does he get it from? He watches TV, he reads books; I mean, it’s a really mystifying, difficult thing....

[He] left Occidental College, which is near Pasadena, to get to Columbia University because it is closer to an urban centre and closer to an African American population. And where does he go after that? The south side of Chicago. And that is where he comes alive. That is where he finds a sense of purpose and identification and all those things we know. He chose a very definite way of being.

  1. And yet, with all the books being written about Obama, no one answers the questions; how did a kid from a middle class family in Hawaii manage to go to not one, but three tony universities? Who paid his way? Yeah, Granny Dunham may have been a bank officer, but Gramps was a first class loser who did not work. Where did the money come from?

    Scholarships? Which ones?
    Affirmative action? Perhaps.
    Outside funding? From whom?

    Someone foot the bill for those years and Obama has reported that he only worked one summer out of all those years. You don't pay for Columbia, Harvard or even Occidental by earning a couple of bucks during one summer. Obama talks in his book about landing in New York and sleeping on the street the first night. Well, who the hell picked up his tuition? Or was he already a William Ayers insider when he landed in New York?

    All these books on a man who basically invented himself from fairy wings are useless as they tell us nothing we already didn't know and what we don't know is monumental.

    And what we do know is that his narcissims knows no bounds. He is portrayed as such a great family man, yet from the time he left Hawaii to attend Occidental not once did he bother to return to Hawaii to visit the woman who sacrificed so much to put him in a tony prep school. He did not visit poor Granny (the typical white person) until it became politically expedient during his campaign. Odd that visit just happened to coincide with the "birth certificate" dust up.

    We know more about George Washington and his daily life than we do about our current POTUS. Somehow that strikes me as a bit odd. Perhaps future historians will do the leg work that all these authors are unwilling to do now. My guess is they will learn that the American voter was sold the largest vat of snake oil ever, all aided by David Axelrod's genius who took an already developing image and rocketed it to rock star status.

  2. Another odd point—who goes on trips to Pakistan upon graduation, hides away for a few months as a newlywed in Bali to finish a book, all while supposedly steeped in student loan debt?

  3. He's a sleeper...always has been.
    Communism fell apart as he was growing up being programed, but he was still being trained to the ultimate goal of the "unknown agencies"...President of the U.S. to destroy from within. I do believe they succeeded.
