Who Is Barack Obama? And why do people say such loopy, ugly things about him? [Hurl Warning]
New York Magazine ^ | September 20, 2009 | Philip Weiss

All around were satanic representations of President Barack Obama in whiteface, as a Nazi, an African witch doctor, a Marxist, a Muslim, and Che Guevara’s best friend—but Kathy Golya had never felt so good about the new administration as she did right now. It was a day after Representative Joe Wilson’s outburst in Congress, and the South Carolina congressman had given voice to Golya’s inner heart. He hadn’t just said it on the Internet, he had said it to the president himself.

No, it was not the appropriate place, Golya said, but still she glowed with the memory. “It was the first time in my life I felt good, since he got into office. Someone had called him a liar.”

A prim, slender homemaker in her fifties from northeastern Pennsylvania, Golya had come out to a tea party in Scranton with her friend Donna Biscontini to have solidarity with everyone else with strong criticisms of the president. Not really criticisms, actually, but feelings—anger, upset, a sense of dispossession. There had been a kind of revolution in the country with Obama’s election, the women felt. They talked about the president’s “czars.” One of the czars believed that animals should have lawyers to sue their owners. “Animals have more rights than people,” Biscontini said. Another was for forced sterilization. “Who’s that sound like? Hitler,” Golya said. The president was putting himself at a godly level, was her point; he was saying that man controls his destiny, not God. She saw that as arrogance. She mentioned that the president’s wife wore $600 shoes when she was helping the poor.(continued)

No wonder Obama considers bailing them out. Such objective and newsworthy sources, which for some completely unknown reason nobody will soon read.

Who is Barrick, is what we have been asking for awhile.

I stumbled across the fact that his claimed father was call Barrick, spelt the same but pronounced different.

Would the magazine wonder why Barak Obama went to college under another name ?

Who Is Barack Obama?

A lying socialist.

And why do people say such loopy, ugly things about him?

There are a few loopy, ugly things people have said. Mostly, however, the things that are said are true. The author might consider them "ugly" because the left doesn't like facts.

I admit to being a RACIST. I despise the half of Obama that is white.

This line has rendered some of my liberal friends speechless.

Wow, they can certainly drool on about their boy. Too bad they never bothered to report on him. Imagine, the only executive experience he had was in organizing Acorn. No one in the PC media bothered to look into Acorn and its corporate behavior. Funny, I thought journalist (try not to laugh) were always investigating corporate behavior to protect the little guy. Guess I was wrong. So now we are stuck with a slimy Chicago criminal shakedown artist. Thanks media - that ivy leaque education is certianly worth the $300k your daddy spent.

Obama is a pretender.

The press are a bunch of racist, unpatriotic sissies.

See, I set the record straight in only two simple sentences.

That is one sick article. I could only take three pages!

The other four are overkill.

FTA: Even as he chose Sarah Palin, McCain held her back, a sideshow, albeit one that often overshadowed the main event and prefigured this summer’s circus. That season of reasonableness may have left the Obama administration too confident in its ability to ignore the smears.

Why? Because most are true. Lies do not have to be invented, Obama tells lies every time he opens his mouth.

That is a matter under debate. Some believe that Bubba was the first black President. Until the issue is resolved we can’t really go with the Joker as first.
