Skip to comments.7 stories Barack Obama doesn't want told

Presidential politics is about storytelling. Presented with a vivid storyline, voters naturally tend to fit every new event or piece of information into a picture that is already neatly framed in their minds.
No one understands this better than Barack Obama and his team, who won the 2008 election in part because they were better storytellers than the opposition. The pro-Obama narrative featured an almost mystically talented young idealist who stood for change in a disciplined and thoughtful way. This easily outpowered the anti-Obama narrative, featuring an opportunistic Chicago pol with dubious relationships who was more liberal than he was letting on.
A year into his presidency, however, Obamas gift for controlling his image shows signs of faltering. As Washington returns to work from the Thanksgiving holiday, there are several anti-Obama storylines gaining momentum.
The Obama White House argues that all of these storylines are inaccurate or unfair. In some cases these anti-Obama narratives are fanned by Republicans, in some cases by reporters and commentators.
But they all are serious threats to Obama, if they gain enough currency to become the dominant frame through which people interpret the presidents actions and motives.

He would have if Sarah had her way. In her TV interviews she made the case for bringing up Obama's associations, which are legitimate for the voting populace to know, but was silenced by the McCain campaign.
What’s up with the douches at the Politico. Starting the CYA?
Yup - I quit reading 1/2 down page two. The author still LOVES bammy, but doesn’t understand why the prez is failing.
The fact that John Harris, former WashPost reporter,
would even be whispering such things .. though
nowhere near the core disastrous qualities of anti-
Americanism we all know so well about this cretin ..
shows the veneer may be starting to crack just a bit,
Chicago Way and all.
He is only a front man and his handlers now appear to be rather stupid....so their front man looks and is stupid.

You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you
sadly many obama voters have no clue who Ayers is or the connection to the terrorist group for bozo.
why does this writer say that it is groups growing against bozo?
It is not paid organised groups alone it is the normal guy on the street looking at him and saying what a complete idiot who has no leadership, no clue on the international stage and certainly is trying to get this country into a Marxists one
Criminal criminal media. I want to see their downfall in my lifetime.
There are far more than 7 stories he doesn’t want told.
I bet he doesn’t want told the story about how when a gay guy in a limo came to Chicago to cruise, the Muslim cabbie knew just who to hook him up with, a slim mocha pol who liked a drink and a little crack-smoking before enjoying a round of sex in the limo. And how the pol enjoyed himself so immensely he tracked the gay visitor down the next day at his hotel for a second round.
Is there any possibility that BarrytheFairy has ever served time in prison? Any rumors to that affect?
3 I know are not. The one with the picture of him on the wall, I can’t say for sure. Someone else posted it on FR. The others are not and there are tons more like that. It’s called malignant narcissist.
