The Washington Post hits Obama: “I, too have become disillusioned”

                                    Comments by my buddy Joop from New Zealand also a citizen Journalist and Patriot.

Finally, the Washington Post speaks out on Obama! This is very brutal, and timely though.

By marching backwards and from behind?

As I’m sure you know, the Washington Post newspaper has a reputation for being extremely liberal. So the fact that its editor saw fit to print the following article about Obama in its newspaper makes this a truly amazing event and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his obvious
socialist agenda are starting to trickle through the “protective wall” built around him by our liberal media.

“I, too have become disillusioned.”


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, the result
of 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 liberal Dom
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

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

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 Teleprompters 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

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.

  1. But very good read! TY! One thing I do want to comment on is referring to Obamas skin color! OBAMA is half white! NOT a true African. But that was a part of the deception in 2008! People didnt know that then!

  2. Your right Helen. The Media is a big part of this! DECEPTION! Of the people! And people , especially younger generation, are more gullible! Times have changed! Hard work replaced by EASE! And GOD and Christianity by immorality! NO Obama didnt make it this far by his own acedemic achievements. or success. HE is the puppet and someone ELSE IS behind it too. Ultimately it starts with letter S and ends with N. Obama is as dumb as a rock pile. Or pile of bricks. He ISNT even a USA citizen! Ive seen enuff proof to believe it! But will these cowardly assholes who COULD do something about it do it? NO! Cowards! IT will be up to WE THE PEOPLE! Likely Civil War. Bloodshed! And NUKES! I dont think Obama plans on leaving in 2016! He just getting started now! The constitution is just a piece of paper! Like a restraining order on someone you feel threatened by! PAPER! ASS WIPE! Means nothing!
    OH and Michele Obama? Real name is Michael! MIKE THE TRANNY! KIds are adopted! 2 men cant have kids! Obviously! This was ALL set up by the masterminds behind Obama Regime before 2008 election! The kids given to them. Make him look like a normal family man and father! OMG I could puke my guts out! GOD HELP US

  3. Funded by the Saudi(s)…there was massive voter fraud both times.
    The first time he ran, Clinton brought out his past (the BC) and he threatened the life of her daughter.
    McCain/Palin actually did win. Palin wanted an investigation, and , the wimp that he is, McCain poo-poo’d the idea.
    The 2nd fraud was even worse. People were turned away from the Voting Polls stating, “You’ve already voted.
    Towns were reporting they had more votes for Obama than they had citizens (thanks to the George Soros)…many people reported they voted for Romney… only to see the vote switch to Obama.
    On the same night Obama had his Campaign Rally, only 200 people showed up. That was the same night Romney had his hugely successful Rally at Red Rock…watch this very short video of Romney at Red Rock:

    Romney just disappeared only to return to state one sentence, “It was out of my control.” Now he has disappeared again.

  4. They have become disillusioned? Most people could see what was coming… and we still didn’t expect it to be THIS bad. Lame Duck bad? Yes…
    He is deliberately destroying our country and doesn’t seem to slow down.
    I am hoping(?) with the new Republicans in there, it will help.
    I don’t know though….Obama has for the most part, taken over like a 3rd World Dictator.

  5. I agree Upaces. McCain was the worst candidate the GOP could evern have nominated. He only got as far as he did CUZ of Palin! (im still in touch with Palin. Got a 2015 calander. and a signed photo of her 2 days ago. OH I wish she would run for Pres ). But yes Massive voter fraud got Obama in. Done by those behind the scenes. The REAL ones in power! Way it sounds voting will be different now. Proposed changes. IF it isnt too late.
    And I hope too that the new Rep in there can make a difference. Sorry for my pessimism. BUT Id think the ones behind Obama werent ready for this! Knew it would happen! They wont give up! OR let their MUSLIM man be voted out. Doubt there will be a 2016 election. A catastrophy. Caused BY this Regime, and Sharia law will assure it! Demon possessed people will know what to do. And heartlessly!
