FORBES: How Obama Thinks, by Dinesh D'Souza (Stunning)
FORBES ^ | 9/11/2010 | Dinesh D'Souza

Posted on 09/12/2010 4:15:15 PM PDT by StopObama2012

The President's actions are so bizarre that they mystify his critics and supporters alike.

(snip)

But instead of readying us for the challenge, our President is trapped in his father's time machine.

Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation's agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son.

The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father's dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost.

Amen. It is also the fairest account of the man because it uses Obama’s own words. Like we study Mein Kampf or Das Kapital to see what made Hitler and Marx tick, but no journalist worth their salt paid heed to the warnings and foreshadowing set forth in the 2 autobiographies of the lad.

D'Souza makes the same mistake that D. Limbaugh makes--they think Barak H. Obama really exists.

There is no Barak Obama, little grasshopper. Just this lazy shell that some people think is attractive, just an empty designer suit. He's a sock puppet, and you need to pay attn to what the hand in the puppet thinks, not the puppet.

An interesting read, but the psychological underpinnings could just as easily apply to citizen Soros.

BHO is powerless, if we could just isolate him from that which animates him.

I agree that there are greater forces behind 0bama, such as Soros.

However, their motives overlap a great deal. They both want to knock the USA down. Dismantle it if possible.

If you put 300 communists in a room, their goals won’t match 100%. Yet each one is nuts, bitter, and trying to destroy the USA thru the common thread of Communism.

If Sharia helps that effort, then they support Sharia. If labeling returning veterans as “potential terrorists” helps that effort, then they pull that stunt also.

In principle, helping Brazil harvest more oil for itself can still help the US because oil is fungible — what Brazil doesn’t buy, the US can. It helps oil prices ease.

But it certainly can’t be called a “green” move and it puts the lie to the supposed “green” ideals of the Bummer admin.

Also, the wishes of the Rat Congress need to be taken into account when talking about budgets. It takes three to dance this tango — the president, the House, and the Senate. And the House is critical because budgets have to originate there.

“this was all crystal clear to anyone without their head in their ass in 2008.”

I don’t think it was.

This level of detail was not available. We knew he hated the USA. We knew he wanted it dismantled, embarrassed, crippled. Yes, THAT we knew.

But that didn’t explain exactly what his thinking was, or exactly the reasoning behind his hatred of the USA. The best most folks could muster was “He’s moslem, he’s got a foreign mentality, etc.”

Very true, yet this article goes further, deeper.

Yes it is. It fully explains many of the weird discrepancies and contradictions in Obama’s behaviors and prejudices.

Obama is a very dangerous man, because he is mentally ill, malevolent, and has been entrusted with great power.

Thank you for posting this article, StopObama2012.

For added insight, read this:

in which you will find such nuggets as:

"The African colonial politician (ACP) feigns repulsion towards the hegemonic paradigms of Western civilization. But at the same time, he is completely enamored of the trappings of its aristocracy or elite culture."

http://spectator.org/archives/2010/07/16/americas-ruling-class-and-the

D’Souza has written a wonderful article, but there is a problem with it. All that flowery, descriptive language about Obama in Africa was no doubt written by Bill Ayers. I am not sure Obama is that concerned about anticolonialism, but he definitely buys into it.

I think Obama was brung, and them who brung him feel exactly as D’Souza explains. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself. He’s a stunted asocial arrogant man, the result of an abandoned and abused childhood.

He doesn’t know his father’s dreams. Neither did Ayers, but Ayers knew how to fake them for the most profit for the cause.

True, but I’m sure his string pullers convince him that he is in charge. They may even convince him that their ideas are really his ideas. Tell him how important he is in the scheme of things—that wouldn’t take much.

That’s a very important point.

Obama regards himself as the Third World Avenger (not that he has anything to avenge, but he has created this persona for his fragile, amorphous personality). But he also, like most avengers, thinks he is very special, and there is nothing more special than the trappings of his enemy’s leaders.

I don’t even give Obama that much credit. At a young age he learned how to slip between white and black, elite and poor - and simply let others attach their ideas to him. I doubt he even thought up most of his ideas himself. It is suspected he didn’t even write his own books, which would be typical of him.

Obama hates the West and wants to make it pay. One of the interesting things about him is that he used American blacks to get elected, but aside from occasionally trying on a lousy, B-movie Hollywood black accent, he has little contact with them now that he’s got what he wanted.

His wife actually is “African American,” in the sense of being descended from African slaves brought here against their will, and I think he leaves most of that to her.

But what he really hates is the West in general, including blacks who have adopted the democratic capitalist model and are successful on their own and have not made it through “community organizing,” getting government handouts, or sports. Successful black sports stars seem to be ok with him, racist slob that he is.

I think that what he wants to do is strip this country of all its wealth, make it powerless, and then go off to the take some sort of world position (perhaps at the UN, or perhaps in some Islamic country as the caliph de tutti califfi) and call out his hordes to attack us and finish us off.

The long and short of it is that he hates the US and he hates the West and its entire Greco-Roman Judeo-Christian tradition.

Questionable theory. While his Kenyan father’s influence is fairly strong, it is limited by the fact that Obama had very little actual contact with the man, who left while O was just a babe.

I suspect that he was more influenced by his buddy Frank, with whom he spent a lot of time, and his mother and her family. The anti-colonialism is surely there (all socialists are anti-colonialists), but I suspect the author has exaggerated it.
