When a respected reporter used video from her cell phone in covering a presidential visit, her name was stricken from the approved list of journalists. Read the article at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/bronstein/detail?entry_id=87978
This is an intelligently written article from a very liberal news source. It reveals something of Obama’s basic nature that contrasts sharply with the image he tries to project. This is an all too common problem with politicians, particularly in the case of Obama, who comes off as if he’s above it all. He wants to be seen as a man for the people, but he is awkward and unconvincing as a man of the people. The jut of his chin is simply too reminiscent of Il Duce.
A major tool in his arsenal to manipulate his image is the control of access to information about him. It took two and a half years for Obama to release his birth certificate, after Donald Trump’s high profile forced the issue. Left wing commentators of the calibre of Whoopi Goldberg, have the respect of Obama supporters when they indignantly accuse anyone who has questioned the President’s “natural born” status of being racist. I guess their rationale is that because American blacks have suffered under racism, they shouldn’t be held to the same standards as everyone else. They ignore little details like presidential candidate John McCain also being asked to produce his birth certificate.
Even the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces and first Supreme Commander of NATO, Dwight D. Eisenhower, was required to produce his birth certificate when he ran for President. You can read about that at https://puzo1.blogspot.com/2011/03/president-dwight-eisenhower-had-to-file.html
Much of Obama’s records have never been released to the public. What Obama doesn’t want us to know is comprised of volumes of information that any honest person would be proud to make public. But Obama doesn’t want that information out because it doesn’t jibe with the image he is trying so hard to maintain. He wants us to be caught up in his image, caught up in his dream. But it’s all a lie.
There are two kinds of dreams: those we have when we are asleep and those that drive us to work towards our goals. More people are learning not to trust Obama’s dream because he doesn’t want to answer their questions. He wants you asleep, dreaming the dream. And if you insist on an answer (as those of us who grew up in a free society are prone to do) you are accused of being a racist. In order for Obama to sell his dream, he has to keep us in the dark. But the time for dreaming is over. The more light shines, the less is hidden from us. Americans need to wake up, turn the lights on and get ready to go to work.
