What is a Barack Obama?

Below is an excerpt from Bernard Goldberg’s best selling book “A Slobbering Love Affair.” In this book, I found some reasons why so many others like myself did NOT vote for Barack Obama in 2008. There are reasons why voters should NOT vote for Obama in 2012. I share this with a bit of hindsight!

Jon Meacham and Evan Thomas of Newsweek magazine went on the Charlie Rose show after the 2008 elections to talk about Barack Obama. Here’s what they said –

MEACHAM: He’s very elusive, Obama, which is fascinating for a man who’s written two memoirs. At Grant Park he walks out with the family and then they go away.

ROSE: Mmmm…

MEACHAM: No adoring wife, no cute kid. He is the messenger.

THOMAS: There is a slightly creepy cult of personality about all this…

ROSE: Slightly. Creepy. Cult of personality.

THOMAS: Yes.

ROSE: What’s slightly creepy about it?

THOMAS: It just makes me a little uneasy that he’s so singular. He’s clearly managing his own spectacle. He’s a deeply manipulative guy…

THOMAS: He has the self-awareness to know that this creature he’s designed isn’t necessarily a real person….

ROSE: Ahhhhhh!

So ended the interview. Barack Obama an unknown commodity, beloved by the Mainstream Media, yet a creation of self...and Americans voted for this! Fool me ONCE...shame on you...fool me TWICE...shame on ME!
