Supporters and non-supporters alike need to read this article.

 

A good way to discern what motivates Obama is to ask a simple question: What is his dream? Is it the American dream? Is it Martin Luther King's dream? Or something else?

 

 

 

 

Interesting points on what his dream really is.

I saw no points, but lots of speculation. This is all what the author "thinks" - I hope it is not journalism, but an opinion piece, because it certainly lacks journalistic integrity.

Yes it is his opinion. But it based on many actual happenings. Call it circumstantial happenings if you like. But if you compile enough circumstantial evidence you begin to make a pretty good case.

 

I am curious as to why a progressive like yourself would find this to be a negative thing? You've stated you believe we need to be taxed more. That more wealth needs to be redistributed to the poor. That too few people have too much wealth. That the government needs more control of our ecomonmy, our industries, healthcare, etc. I would think you would sit back and say, "That's my guy, I agree with him."

I truly believe that Obama wants what is best for this country. I just disagree with what he thinks is best.

 

Disagree. This man wants to bring the USA down a few notches, as we have it to good. He believes that all we have ever done is step all over people and we need to be punished for it.

Here is guy who has it made, but all he can do is bad mouth hard working, industrious, successful people. Wanting to take what they have earned and give it away to others.

Wow. I'm really, really sorry that you feel that way.

Look, it is the authors opinion, but it takes FACTS and comes to a conclusion.

 

He is loose or wrong with many facts.

 

The President did not support the release of the Lockerbie bomber. The letter he cited actually said that the US was against his release BUT if they were going to release him the US wanted him released to Scotland rather than Libya. There is no basis (ie facts) to the "half-hearted" comment.

 

He claims President Obama "underwrites offshore drilling in Brazil" and says the Import Export bank, under President Obama, guaranteed $2M in loans. In reality, that loan from the Import Export bank happened BEFORE he became President and did so with 3 Rs and 2 Ds who were all appointed by President Bush.

 

The writer claims President Obama "supports the Ground Zero mosque." No such quote exists.

 

The writer also falsely claims facts in his book that he wrote.

 

He claims President Obama initiated the automotive and financial industry bailouts. Incorrect.

 

He claimed that in a June 14 speech President Obama consistently referred to BP as "British Petroleum" in order to support the writer's view that President Obama was anti-colonialism and "reminding Americans of what BP used to stand for." The transcript of the speech shows that the President never once referred to them by any other name than BP.

 

There are other "facts" that have been disproven.

 

The writer lacks credibility and is offering nothing more than guesses.

When did you decide that you disliked him? What made you feel that way?

 

I believed that Hillary was too liberal. That makes Obama extremely liberal. Statements like "bitter clingers" didn't help my image of him. His friends like Ayers dropped him several notches more. And his pastor did nothing to improve his image. His belief in big government. His voting present many times when in the Illinois Senate. The fact that he has never held a job in a business, let alone run one.

I think you get the picture.

I can give you the clinging to the guns and God statement

 

The other ones are guilt by association and don't really hold water.

 

You apparently really have no clue about what he did before the senate. A little research goes a long way.
