Decoding Obama - The man who never built anything
Opinion Essay ^ | 8/29/2012 | Bronco_Buster_Fweethyagh!

"... look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own... I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there...[] If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen." -President Barack Hussein Obama, July 13, 2012

Barack Obama's argument for higher and higher taxes is based on his fundamental belief that successful people are not successful because of their hard work, their individual talents, or their own achievements. If you have a full understanding of Obama's background, that should be no surprise. Barack Hussein Obama does not believe that you are responsible for your own success, because he is not responsible for his.

Barack Obama was a prolific drug user during high school and college. His own admissions, and those of his closest circle of friends, indicate that it was not an "I didn't inhale" experimentation. Instead, it was a trend setting level of competitive drug use, including at least alcohol, marijuana and cocaine. Obama refuses to unseal his medical or criminal records.

Obama is the bi-racial son of a black radical Kenyan communist and a liberal white woman from a liberal family. He was surrounded by liberals, socialists, communists and radicals throughout his years in education. Fortunately for Obama, being half-black and qualifying as a foreign student opened the doors to affirmative action minority admissions and financial aid that were not available to smarter, harder working individuals. Obama refuses to unseal his college and law school admission applications, or his financial aid records.

Obama was by all accounts a poor student. From Occidental college in Los Angeles, he eventually transferred to Columbia University. Almost none of his college peers have any recollection of him at all. Nor is there any objective evidence of academic achievement or excellence. However, attending Occidental college in 1979, and eventually graduating from Columbia, these were the height of the affirmative action years in the United States. Further, college papers are graded with student names on them. Liberal professors at liberal ivy league universities, grading the papers of the well spoke young half-black Obama would know whose papers they were grading. Was Obama a good student? What was his undergraduate degree? What were his grades? Which classes did he take? We may never know. Obama refuses to unseal his college transcripts.

Obama attended Harvard Law School; one of the most elite, and most liberal, law schools in the nation. The competitiveness of entry into Harvard cannot be overstated. However, affirmative action entries in the 1980's were common, as Harvard related publications and alumni will describe. Obama was by all accounts most likely an affirmative action admission to Harvard. There, instead of grading onto the law review, like many other schools where only the top 10% of students qualify, Obama was given a spot on the elite publication. There, instead of earning the position of President by academic performance, or the quality of openly published and peer-reviewed papers, Obama was voted into the position of President by his largely liberal, elite and white-guilt ridden peers. Did Obama earn the position with his grades? Did Obama earn the position with excellent intelligent legal writing? We may never know. Obama refuses to unseal his law school transcripts or writings.

After law school, Obama moved to Illinois and joined the corrupt Chicago political machine. He never held a private sector job. He never hired or fired anyone. He never earned a paycheck by actually producing, distributing, selling, servicing or managing anything. Supposedly, Barack Obama was admitted to the Illinois State Bar. However, did he actually sit for and take the bar exam? Did he gain admission through a "buddy system" legal externship with an admitted Illinois attorney? Did he pass the bar the first time, did he even take the bar? We may never know. Obama refuses to unseal his Illinois state bar records.

After law school, and after gaining admission to the Illinois state bar, Obama worked as a "community organizer" and claimed to be a "constitutional law professor" at the University of Chicago law school. However, his actual title was "senior lecturer" which is a non-tenured, non peer-reviewed position with no authority, not a full professor. Further, witnesses indicate that what Obama actually "taught" was a predictable class dealing with the jurisprudence of the 14th Amendment, which anyone with legal understanding knows is the liberal's go to amendment when arguing for the rewriting of the Constitution. Obama, once referring to the "so called founding fathers" may or may not have actually taught a full constitutional law course. He may or may not have been an intelligent learned professor. He may or may not have been hired simply because he was a Harvard graduate (even if he barely graduated with substandard grades) and a minority, hired to help fill a racial quota. We may never know. Obama refuses to unseal his records and student reviews from the University of Chicago law school.

As of 2004, Michelle Obama earned $121,000 at the University of Chicago Medical Center as one of many "executive directors." In 2005, she was promoted to Vice President of Community and External Affairs (huh?) and her salary was increased to $316,962. Coincidentally (or not), her husband, Barack Obama, had been elected Senator of Illinois in November of 2004. Did Michelle Obama earn her position and newly tripled salary based on her performance? Or, was this a payoff familiar to those who work in the shadows of the corrupt Chicago political scene? We may never know. Michelle Obama refuses to unseal her employment records at the University of Chicago Medical Center. However, it is undisputed that as a "senior lecturer" (aka constitutional law professor) at the University of Chicago law school, and a "vice president" at the University of Chicago Medical Center, both Barack and Michelle Obama earned their first dollars working for a government entity.

So, when President Obama tells successful people they are not smarter than others, that they are not harder working than others, and that they didn't build their own businesses, you can be sure that he truly believes what he says. Frankly, why wouldn't he? He was clearly not smarter, or harder working than any of his peers. Nor has he ever built any kind of business. He has never even worked in the private sector. Someone who has been coddled his whole life, the poor abandoned boy, the half-black darling, the affirmative action student and teacher...someone like that would rightfully believe that their own success in our country was given to them by other people.

If Obama does not believe that you built your own business, if Obama doesn't believe that you are to be given credit for your own success, then what makes you think he would hesitate to take everything you have and redistribute it as he sees fit?

"... look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own... I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there...[] If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen." -President Barack Hussein Obama, July 13, 2012

This is wrong. Obama has built something in his life. He’s built the largest debt in American history.

He is proud of building that. Believe me.

Your modesty is unwarranted. You did one helluva job. The repeated "we may never know. Obama has sealed his ... " would work as a rhetorical device in a speech or voiced over in a commercial. Either way or simply as text, this should be sent viral.

Correct, he has built a legacy of debt, deficit, division and demonizing. I should say that he has never built anything IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. Even his debt was built in a government building.

It really ain’t about Obama, in the end. It is about THOSE that invested in his being the present White House occupant.

Thanks Katana. I thought about that final sentence repeating, and how it might sound in a voice over. If I didn't sound like woody woodpecker in math class, I'd try!

This was good too! Spiro Agnew would appreciate the alliteration :) Very nice job on the underlying essay.

Thanks rockvillem. As Spiro Agnew said (in jest) and as Obama should always say...

People like the Obama’s have a very skewed perception of work, morals, patriotism or nationality, family, religion, defense and law enforcement, money and the purpose it serves.

Some realities which the socialist cannot come to grips with:

1. The basic building block of any society is a family, i.e. mother, father, children. Not homo's, DINCs, etc.

2. Money is nothing more than an abstract concept representing human time. It is amoral and a tool that organizes economic functions in a way that always strives to meet the demands while minimizing inefficiencies.

3. Wealth isn't finite. It is created. There are more people today in NY than in the Roman Empire. If wealth were finite, we'd all be starving. The socialist strives for redistribution of wealth, and ALL measures to this end ultimately destroy wealth or suppress its creation.

4. It is culture that creates wealth, not wealth that creates culture. Sitting on millions Tyson still bit another mans ear off, and if Saudi Arabia ran out of oil tomorrow, they would again herd camels and roam the desert all awhile Japan a resource scarce nation and blasted to oblivion in WWII rose like a phoenix to become a safe, prosperous and high tech society.

5. We live in a world of nations despite their globalist and supra national or pan European views. While capitalism and trade is good (which they bad mouth), producing more wealth, bringing a higher standard of living to the poor in the third world, and preventing war through greater undertsaning, co-dependencies etc. the “one people” world view crap is trash. Just like the Soviet Union broke apart because they were never “one people” so will the stitched together Europe, eventually. It's only a matter of time. We are different people, with different visions and desired outcomes. We don't want to be under one world government, forced into a cookie cutter of some leftist design.

6. Science and religion are not at odds, rather complimentary. Especially Christianity which teaches “self determinism” is a threat to collectivist thought and ever since Marx has been labeled the “Opiate of the masses,” may that be in Cuba, the Soviet Union, China, DDR... Science today no more explains nor answers the most basic question of how and why than 100, 500, or even 1000 years ago. But especially Christianity is a thorn in the socialists side, so they must fight it. They will accept aliens before they accept the idea of a God.

7. The basic economic forces and human nature are always present and at work. The only difference is that some economic models choose to ignore these realities, and they end up like the Soviet Union, Cuba, or DDR. Brainwashing efforts in schools and media, censorship and controlling the movement of people will not change this.

This POS affirmative action POTUS was elected only because he was black. He never ever did anything being only a paid foreign student. Who knew nothing and did nothing and was given his status.
