Even Obama fans notice he's a phony in how he writes, talks, and even walks
Newsbusters.org ^ | 4-5-10 | Tim Graham

Posted on 04/05/2010 7:55:37 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

How phony is Barack Obama? PBS Washington Week host Gwen Ifill reviewed New Yorker editor David Remnick's new Obama book The Bridge in the Washington Post Outlook section Sunday, and she kept finding Obama is a Slick Barry, a "shape shifter." Obama even admitted to rhetoric what should be obvious -- how he changes "dialects" depending on the audience he's talking to:

Obama cops to this. "The fact that I conjugate my verbs and speak in a typical Midwestern newscaster's voice -- there's no doubt that this helps ease communication between myself and white audiences," he tells Remnick.

"And there's no doubt that when I'm with a black audience I slip into a slightly different dialect. But the point is, I don't feel the need to speak a certain way in front of a black audience. There's a level of self-consciousness about these issues the previous generation had to negotiate that I don't feel I have to."

He’s overcompensating to keep from being rejected by all subcultures.

He’s been told that whites won’t accept him because of his skin color (a lie),
and that he’ll be rejected by blacks unless he’s “authentic”.

So, he goes overboard to be “authentic”.

All Lefties , at least the craven politicos, do this.
Remember that long quotation done by a weary Hillary during the campaign, delivered to an all-black audience?
A good example also, like Obama’s of even her ‘fans’ probably finding that a little hard to swallow.

As articulate as he wants to be.

I couldn't care less what form of colloquial speech he uses any more than it would bother me if he spoke French Parisians; it's the dishonest CONTENT of what he says that is problematic.

I’m waiting for someone to modify the “That’s Racist” animation loop. That kid is getting harder and harder to watch every day.

Any chance we can pause the loop at the end, so a hand can come in and slap him upside the head?

Just “axing”.

In front of moderates he does the Reagan imitation.
How about his claim that the HR was really a republican bill because it was loaded with republican ideas?

A year ago he was considered magic in his ability to convince voters of anything he said. Now his act is getting old.

It is disingenuous to call it “healthcare reform”. It does far more than that.

It is healthcare restructuring.

“Now his act is getting old.”

That’s because a growing fraction of the public and even media recognize it is an “act.” Obama says what he needs to say to get what he wants. He doesn’t change his beliefs or actions to accord with what the public wants: he simply makes it appear that whatever they want is what he wants. Having pulled the wool over most people’s eyes, he then does what he wants. When anyone objects or points out this deception, they are tagged as “racist.” Rinse and repeat ad nauseam.

Hillary C. knows how easy it is just to slip, with no effort or awareness at all, into the easy cadences of childhood. (In Hillary’s case, a childhood spent under the hot Mississippi sun, on a small patch of red dirt from which her sharecropper daddy somehow managed to extract a meager living for her and her six siblings, before a life of toil and no access to comprehensive health care, drove him, like so many other African-American men, to an early grave.)

When are the blacks who worship this phony going to wake up and realize that he shares nothing with them? Obummy was raised and schooled in a foreign country, called Hawaii home — the most multicultural state in the union, educated with elites all his life, etc., etc. Bobby Rush and coherts in Chicago who picked him as not knowing anything about ghetto were right the first time around.

If he hadn't been reminiscent of the little guy from The Gods Must Be Crazy and sounded like Dan Rather and, instead, looked like Jesse Jackson and sounded like Al Sharpton, he'd never have been nominated.

Obama isn’t a phony, but the genuine article where it counts most—he is precisely what leftists want in a president of the US, someone who talks in vague feelgood blather while carefully putting into place legislative landmines which will cause the most damage down the line, when government will have to take over larger sectors of the economy in order to “help people.”

RE :”It is disingenuous to call it “healthcare reform”. It does far more than that.It is healthcare restructuring.

The word ‘Reform’ poll tests better than that or redistribution. Which do you think sounds better for polling purposes : immigration reform or amnesty for illegals? How about the “Economic recovery act of 2009”?? Or calling pork projects 'investments'? It's endless.

Washington disingenuous? Not Obama and Pelosi! Maybe Obama needs to explain it to you a few more times. You know how smart he is.

Usually, when a politician is able to adjust their style of speaking to a variety of audiences, it is considered a sign that they are a good politician, not necessarily that they are being phony. For instance, the fact that New York mayor La Guardia was able to talk to various ethnic groups and even use the correct hand gestures with each group, is often mentioned as evidence of what a great communicator he was.

He calls everything ‘investments’, ‘job bills’ , and ‘deficit reduction’. But as the economy and debt get worse and worse he just claims it would have even been worse without him.

On MSNBC they are talking about Obama talking not about the current state of the economy, but him telling us about positive changes over time. The word they used is trajectory. Seems like the debt trajectory is running us off a cliff. That is why the ‘talk’ is not working.

People when polled about their own current medical coverage were overwhelmingly HAPPY with their current system.

If they’d been told that their insurance would also be “reformed”, there would have been less support.

Anyone ever happy when they hear that their department is being restructured/reorg-ed at work?
