I have had enough. The knuckles are bared. Yesterday Politico ran an article
We have witnessed the media assault Republican candidates viciously and repeatedly. Politico has declared war on Sarah Palin. Politico, the journolistas who would never question Barack Obama’s brain creds have no qualms about opening speculating about Rick Perry’s intelligence.
Now we know why the media struggles so mightily to demean opposing candidates. Barack Obama is the product of affirmative action.
A year ago Jack Cashill wrote the article
In it, Cashill Barack Obama’s sponsor into higher education.
In the summer of 2008, I was tipped to a story that the media were scrupulously ignoring. It involved the venerable African American entrepreneur and politico, Percy Sutton.
A Manhattan borough president for 12 years and a credible candidate for mayor of New York City in 1977, Sutton had appeared in late March 2008 on a local New York City show called ” Inside City Hall.”
When asked about Obama by the show’s host, Dominic Carter, the octogenarian Sutton calmly and lucidly explained that he had been “introduced to [Obama] by a friend.”
The friend’s name was Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, and the introduction had taken place about 20 years prior. Sutton described al-Mansour as “the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men.” The billionaire in question was Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
While we have no idea of the grades Barack Obama earned at Columbia as he has never released his transcripts, we learn something of them from David Remnick:
Nor does David Remnick. His new book,The Bridge, stands as the authoritative book on Obama’s “life and rise,” but he only inadvertently addresses the question of how Obama got into Harvard Law.
The reader learns from Remnick that Obama was an “unspectacular” student in his two years at Columbia and at every stop before that going back to grade school.
Obama wrote something for the Harvard Review that also provided some insight
“I must say, however, that as someone who has undoubtedly benefited from affirmative action programs during my academic career, and as someone who may have benefited from the Law Review’s affirmative action policy when I was selected to join the Review last year, I have not felt stigmatized within the broader law school community or as a staff member of the Review.”
Today in the American Thinker Cashill pulls off the shroud of secrecy hiding Barack Obama’s intellectual depth. He describes a response Obama wrote to a letter written in criticism of Harvard’s affirmative action policy.
The response is classic Obama: patronizing, dishonest, syntactically muddled, and grammatically challenged. In the very first sentence Obama leads with his signature failing, one on full display in his earlier published work: his inability to make subject and predicate agree.
“Since the merits of the Law Review’s selection policy has been the subject of commentary for the last three issues,” wrote Obama, “I’d like to take the time to clarify exactly how our selection process works.”
If Obama were as smart as a fifth-grader, he would know, of course, that “merits … have.” Were there such a thing as a literary Darwin Award, Obama could have won it on this on one sentence alone. He had vindicated Chen in his first ten words.
Although the letter is fewer than a thousand words long, Obama repeats the subject-predicate error at least two more times. In one sentence, he seemingly cannot make up his mind as to which verb option is correct so he tries both: “Approximately half of this first batch is chosen … the other half are selected … ”
Another distinctive Obama flaw is to allow a string of words to float in space. Please note the unanchored phrase in italics at the end of this sentence:
“No editors on the Review will ever know whether any given editor was selected on the basis of grades, writing competition, or affirmative action, and no editors who were selected with affirmative action in mind.” Huh?
Cashill then notes that Obama’s style is the least of our concerns:
Scarier than Obama’s style, however, is his thinking. A neophyte race-hustler after his three years in Chicago, Obama is keen to browbeat those who would “even insinuate” that affirmative action rewards the undeserving, results in inappropriate job placements, or stigmatizes its presumed beneficiaries.
Barack Obama has been described in many a term- narcissist being among the most common. “Touchy” is another. Let’s throw in “insecure” as well.
Obama is the author of such erudition as this:
“On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”
“How many people are getting insurance through their jobs right now? Raise your hands. All right…your employer…would see premiums fall by as much as 3,000 percent, which means they could give you a raise.”
“Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain…administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.”
”The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.”
‘It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing.”
”The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.”
”In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.”
”I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.”
“And I want to be very clear that we are resolved to halt the rise of privacy in that region.”
“Bienvenidos. Welcome to Cinco de Cuatro”
Let us face the truth. Barack Obama is just not all that bright and he knows it. He will not release his transcripts because they would prove him to be what is becoming painfully obvious- an affirmative action President.
