For the record, I think BHO was born in Hawaii. I also think he is a lying Socialist — but I repeat myself. What I do know is that, according to his biography, Obama never worked in a for-profit business, and he did pursue drug use enthusiastically. This is not the forge that makes the mettle for a good leader or chief executive. The president is both Commander-in-Chief of the US Military, and CEO of the Federal Government. Obama has had three-and-a-half years of OJT. So far, he only appears to have enthusiasm for improving his golf game. We need someone far better.
It amazes me that we still do not know this man’s grades from law school, but, we know that Romney beat some up kid in high school. Really? MSM sent close to 100 reporters to go dumpster-diving through Palin’s trash, yet we still do not know what did Obama write to become the editor of the Harvard Law Review. He has the distinction of being the only editor in its history who never published a single article in the Review. The man is a cipher to this day because the MSM refuses to really investigate him in the same way it would vet any Republican.
The figure to the right is from a booklet made by Obama’s promoter, Acton & Dystel, in 1991. The purpose of the fourth estate is to shine a spotlight on all candidates who seek public office. Considering how one cannot get a job as a bank teller without a transcript from ones Alma Mater, that Obama’s past is still subject to speculation is an extraordinary failure to investigate that demonstrates the public trust has been violated by the media. Obama has not been vetted when running for office — ever.
The trouble I see is that the big three, ABC, CBS and NBC, their affiliates and subsidiaries, have confused reportage with editorial writing. Furthermore, they have confused the public trust with the party planks of the Democrat Left. The large newspapers in our great cities, the NYT being the flagship of that dieing industry, are equally complicit in this willful desire to protect the image of a charlatan at the expense of the American public. We have not been served by this booster-ism disguised as news. The Washington Post’s recent spat of front-page, Democrat-water-carrying might not be as laughable had they ever troubled themselves to apply this degree of scrutiny to candidate Obama. The masthead of the papers should be changed to include the Obama Zero, as should the icons of the Big Three. Is this the final nail in the coffin of the big-media impartiality lie?
Here we have an embarrassment. This is not only embarrassing to our president — for the obvious reason that he is caught in a blatant lie. It goes far beyond that. This is an embarrassment for every journalist and reporter in the country who refused to dig into the background of an unknown whose résumé was paper thin. A candidate with so little accomplishment, was hailed as our savior?!? The professional cynics in lieu of a thorough check of his background, soiled themselves showering this wisp-of-a-man with undeserved, fictional accolades. Then, more importantly, there is the embarrassment to the nation — we voted for an unknown with all the care and consideration we reserve for the choosing of a high-school class president. It was not only a willful suspension of disbelief, it was a willful suspension of intelligence. It was hysteria. Then lastly, there is the embarrassment we as a generation will suffer before posterity, for we will endure the collective shame of this error in judgement for decades to come.
