Obama Lacks a True American Voice

In this current climate of polarization between Republicans and Democrats, Conservatives and Progressives, Independents and Liberals, Peaceful and non-violent TEA Party activists and the violent, agitators/ Union thugs (e.g. SEIU), and the Birthers and their detractors etc., it is often necessary to scrutinize and dissect articles that any blog owner decides to include as a link in their post.

[Update: Ultimately, all of these conflicting ideologies can be included under the banner of the battle between free enterprise and statism (socialism, Marxism, Communism). See the videos over at Daily Thought Pad]

Case in point.

Legal Insurrection blog has a post up with excerpts from a Wall Street Journal Opinion Commentator - Dorothy Rabinowitz, who writes a stinging article about Barack Obama's "alien" status as our current Resident in Chief. [Note: Resident in Chief are my words, not hers.]

However, her use of the word "alien" in the article is probably not what you might first think!

Let me begin with a small portion of all (which is most of it) that I agree with in her article.


The deepening notes of disenchantment with Barack Obama now issuing from commentators across the political spectrum were predictable. So, too, were the charges from some of the president's earliest enthusiasts about his failure to reflect a powerful sense of urgency about the oil spill.

There should have been nothing puzzling about his response to anyone who has paid even modest critical attention to Mr. Obama's pronouncements. For it was clear from the first that this president—single-minded, ever-visible, confident in his program for a reformed America saved from darkness by his arrival—was wanting in certain qualities citizens have until now taken for granted in their presidents. Namely, a tone and presence that said: This is the Americans' leader, a man of them, for them, the nation's voice and champion. Mr. Obama wasn't lacking in concern about the oil spill. What he lacked was that voice—and for good reason.

Those qualities to be expected in a president were never about rhetoric; Mr. Obama had proved himself a dab hand at that on the campaign trail. They were a matter of identification with the nation and to all that binds its people together in pride and allegiance. These are feelings held deep in American hearts, unvoiced mostly, but unmistakably there and not only on the Fourth of July.

A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class.

The next sentence is quite ironic. She simultaneously labels Obama as an "alien," (meaning that he is not like any of our previous American presidents); yet reveals her absolute disdain and rejection of the so-called "Birthers":

He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.



The last part of that sentence should delight the detractors of Talk Wisdom's coverage regarding Obama's ineligibility! I have been accused of being a racist, un-Christian, a tin foil hat wearer...and the list goes on. Now the haters of my blog can add "demented fringe" to the list!

HA HA HA HAAAAAA! For some reason, I find this all very humorous!

Even though I, and millions more Americans who want to see Obama's bona fide records have good reason to doubt that he is telling the truth about his birth place, I will take that derogatory label and wear it proudly. One day, the truth will come out. The fact is that Obama is hiding SOMETHING. What it is - we cannot know for sure. But it has to be big and very important in order for him to spend 2 million dollars to keep the lawsuit investigations out of court.

You must read the rest of this excellent article here.

Ms. Rabinowitz might be correct about this:

Long after Mr. Obama leaves office, it will be this parade of explicators, laboring mightily to sell each new piece of official reality revisionism—Janet Napolitano and her immortal "man-caused disasters'' among them—that will stand most memorably as the face of this administration.

...because Obama's residency in the White House and his corrupt parade of cronies really ARE "new piece(s) of official reality revision(ists)!" But I disagree that it will stand as the MOST memorable feat of this alien residency. IMO, there will be MUCH MORE that will be revealed and Americans will be wiping their brows after the long, hard, and very difficult struggle it will take to keep our Constitutional Republic, liberty and freedom alive. One day, we will all be saying WHEW! THAT WAS A CLOSE CALL! We will be celebrating our hard-earned ESCAPE from the journey into serfdom that the revolutionary Marxists/Islamo-Fascists tried to do here in the United States of America!

Thank God that the reality of the danger we face with this gangster government is finally sinking into the minds of most Americans!

In regards to the distance between Obama's terrible ideology and that of most loyal, patriotic, Constitution affirming and Declaration of Independence believing Americans (even some of the rabid leftists in the Lamestream Media of Mass Deception are questioning Obama's extreme ideology now!!) Ms. Rabinowitz concludes:

The truth about that distance is now sinking in, which is all to the good. A country governed by leaders too principled to speak the name of its mortal enemy needs every infusion of reality it can get.

Given that Americans who weren't born in the United States are Constitutionally ineligible to run for President, are potential candidates usually vetted beforehand?

Hi Ross,

In Obama's case - apparently not.
