    Someone in the Media, who has the balls to tell it like it is.
    Amazing! What took so long? Time to take notice when the # 1 newspaper
    in the US has a staff person write an article that doesn't get censured!!

    A "deadly" article regarding Obama, at the Wall Street Journal, which
    today is the most widely circulated newspaper in America ...that needs
    to be read by every levelheaded American!!! This is from the Wall Street
    Journal which makes it even more interesting. They were once in his camp.

    Wall Street Journal Sizes up Obama - They've Got Him Figured Out
    Article from the Wall Street Journal - by Eddie Sessions:

    "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 took a look at this tall,
    good looking, half-white, half-Arab, 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, nearly a full 2+ years into his first term, 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 has 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 of America?"

    I agree with the article, but I suspect it wasn't really published in the WSJ.

    The only problem is that it is not a WSJ article and was not written by an Eddie Sessions. It was actually written by Alan Caruba on his blog “Warning Signs” on January 3, 2010


    However, it is still true.
