Hussein Obama, the Affirmative Action POTUS

Affirmative Action Experiment Gone Wrong

A must read to the end.
Obama: The Affirmative Action President

  • By Matt Patterson

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?

Be sure to read this to the end. You will be surprised who Matt Patterson is!

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 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 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’scolleague 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 liberaldomto 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 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.

But hey, at least we got to feel good about ourselves for a little while. And really, isn’t that all that matters these days?

  1. Hear! Hear! Truer words were never spoken.

    “….our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job.” and probably a traitor to boot.

  2. And those of us who were not fooled by all the hysteria and Lame Stream EneMedia worship of the Affirmative Action,Anchor Baby,Telepropmter Kid, USURPER from the get go are amazed that it has taken so long for ‘SOME” people to wake up to the reality of Obambi.
    Left Wing moonbats and Racist Blacks of course will never accept that their God has feet of clay. I predicted blood on the streets of America when disillusion with the Messiah’s and his patently FAKE life story became mainstream and it i already happening with OWS. OWS is the benefit and entitlement junkies on the march those who create no wealth at all wanting their “SHARE” of the wealth other people create. In fact they can be neatly labelled as Obambi loving Democrats.

    1. Obama Birth Certificate Update|

      Breaking: “Researcher Ron Polland [PhD], known for his forensic investigation of Barack Obama’s short-form birth certificate, now has constructed from scratch a duplicate of the document released by the White House in April, seeking to validate his contention that it was created by a forger.” -WorldNetDaily.

      Add one more log to the fire. Polland, who claims that he also “created” the short form birth certificate that Team Obama eventually published on the Internet back in 2008, is not alone. Since Barack Obama released what he claims is his long form birth certificate back in April, more than 20 computer and imaging experts have gone on record and demonstrated anomalies in that document; and to date, NOT ONE forensic expert has stepped forward to vouch for the document’s validity.

      But here’s the ultimate irony: as Rome burns and our nation spirals ever closer to bankruptcy, a man who may not even be eligible to serve as President of the United States has essentially hit the campaign trail, spreading his re-election venom of class envy as he tries to extort Congress into passing a job destruction scam that could cripple our fragile nation beyond the point of repair.

      And his allies and minions are spending untold amounts of money, staging phony “occupy protests” in cities across the nation. The pundits and talking-heads may be too scared to admit it… but it’s no coincidence.

      And the political elites are cowering in fear… they desperately want what may turn out to be the greatest fraud ever perpetuated on the American people to go away. We can’t let that happen.

      Once and for all our elected officials must be made to understand that the means to stop the radical Obama agenda is staring them in the face. The American people need to know, once and for all, if the man who is destroying this great nation brick by brick is a FRAUD and a USURPER. We need a Congressional investigation… and we need it today.

      Not One Graphics Expert Has Come Forward And Vouched For The Authenticity Of The So-Called Birth Certificate That Obama Released On The Internet.
