  • The Barack backlash (America takes a second look, and backs away)

    WORLD NET DAILY ^ | 10/17/08 | © 2008 Pat Buchanan
    --SNIP--Obama knows Middle America harbors deep suspicions of him.....he has jettisoned position after position to make himself acceptable. His "flip-flops" testify most convincingly to the fact that Obama knows that where he comes from is far outside the American mainstream. For what are flip-flops other than concessions that a position is untenable and must be abandoned? Thus, though he is the nominee of a party in thrall to the environmental movement, Obama has signaled conditional support for offshore drilling and pumping out of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. While holding to his pledge for a pullout of combat brigades from Iraq...

    The column should help convince you that if you want the corrupt Chicago-style political cronyism on a national basis, you should vote for Sen. Barack Obama. This is one sliver of how Sen. Obama's actions will translate into disaster totally contrary to his saccharin-sweet speeches. When you ponder what candidate can best handle the economy, take into account how Sen. Obama betrayed the public trust and how he was a central figure in some of the worst economic management of recent times. You won't read about this in the mainstream media, but Sen. Obama did to the taxpayers of Illinois...

    IF YOU find yourself believing that “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”, [...] chances are that you are suffering from a severe case of Obamamania. ... [A remedy] comes in the form of a new book by David Freddoso, “The Case Against Barack Obama”. Unlike the authors of some of the cruder attacks on Mr Obama, Mr Freddoso works for a well-respected organisation, the online version of the National Review. Although it is a conservative publication and the author makes no secret of where his political sympathies lie, this is a well-researched, extensively footnoted work. It aims not...

    With few exceptions, the mainstream media has fallen down on the job covering the meteoric rise of Senator Barack Obama, so when every once in a while a journalist takes an honest, critical look at Obama, people who believe in the democratic process should welcome the discussion. But instead of welcoming the opportunity, the Obama campaign tries to suppress legitimate debate by engaging in Leninist political theater. If Obama has nothing to hide, what's he so afraid of? The campaign's Obama Action Wire tried to drown out investigative journalist David Freddoso who wrote the New York Times bestseller, The Case...

It is the second time in recent weeks the station has been the target of an "Obama Action Wire" alert to supporters of the Illinois Democrat. Monday night's target was David Freddoso, who the campaign said was scheduled to be on the station from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Chicago time.

David Freddoso has made a career off dishonest, extreme hate mongering, even calling legislation to protect people from hate crimes the "Thought Police."2 And WGN apparently thinks this card-carrying member of the right-wing smear machine3...

    Capital Research Center’s James Dellinger and Matthew Vadum interviewed National Review Online’s David Freddoso about his New York Times bestselling book, The Case Against Barack Obama on the August 26, 2008, edition of online radio show “Organization Watch.” In the book Freddoso cites the work of Capital Research Center, specifically our June 2008 Foundation Watch article, “Barack Obama: A Radical Leftist’s Journey from Community Organizing to Politics.” Obama is "one of the fiercest guardians of the corrupt status quo," says Freddoso. "He is the problem he describes." The full interview is available here as an MP3 audio file. The following...

    American Thinker ^ | August 27, 2008 | Ed Lasky
    Throughout his campaign, Barack Obama has presented himself to be a new type of politician: transparent, clean, aboveboard, and above all, positive. His campaign would be an idealistic one: no tricks, just plain old-fashioned honesty. Of course, coming from Chicago with its big-city machine politics this would be quite impressive if it were true. Alas, it is not. As many are learning from David Freddoso's new book, The Case Against Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee was a practitioner of the dark arts himself -- and he has continued to rely upon tricks as tactics in his ground game. The...

    It would be hard to make a better case against a Barack Obama presidency than the one Obama has made in his own words.  The most memorable thing about Obama’s speeches is not generally what he says, but rather how large and enthusiastic the audiences are.  If voters pay attention only to the symbolism and get caught up in the excitement of the Obamessiah and his throngs of fainting disciples, he stands a good chance of winning in November.  If voters pay attention instead to the things Obama is saying, the case against an Obama presidency will be clear.  Obama’s...

    New York Post ^ | August 21, 2008 | David Freddeso
    Barack Obama has ad mitted it was "boneheaded" to get involved in a land deal with Tony Rezko, his friend and fund-raiser. But the media's focus on that deal has distracted from the bigger question: Why would Obama become involved in any deal with a man like Rezko, who made his living sponging off taxpayers and corrupting public officials? Because, by the time of the deal, the two already had a long relationship of mutual benefit. The deal's details are well-known: On June 15, 2005, Obama bought a gorgeous house in Hyde Park for $1.65 million - $300,000 below the...

    Democrats don't like it when you say that Barack Obama won his first election in 1996 by throwing all of his opponents off the ballot on technicalities. By clearing out the incumbent and the others in his first Democratic primary for state Senate, Mr. Obama did something that was neither illegal nor even uncommon. But Mr. Obama claims to represent something different from old-style politics -- especially old-style Chicago politics. And the senator is embarrassed enough by what he did that he misrepresents it in the prologue of his political memoir, "The Audacity of Hope." ... In real life, it...

    The Case For The Case Against Barack ObamaA tale of two books. By Jim Geraghty If one is going to examine Jerome Corsi’s The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, one probably ought to also read David Freddoso’s book on the Democratic nominee, The Case Against Barack Obama. Freddoso is one of our own, and he thanks me in the acknowledgments. So take that into account as you read the review. Of the two books, Corsi’s has garnered a lot more attention, and that’s unfortunate. Obama himself has talked about Corsi’s book, saying it “just kind of...

    In 2001, Senator Barack Obama was the only member of the Illinois senate to speak against a bill that would have recognized premature abortion survivors as “persons.” The bill was in response to a Chicago-area hospital that was leaving such babies to die. Obama voted “present” on the bill after denouncing it. It passed the state Senate but died in a state house committee. In 2003, a similar bill came before Obama’s health committee. He voted against it. But this time, the legislation was slightly different. This latter version was identical to the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which by...

    The Obama campaign’s response to Jerome Corsi’s book about Senator Barack Obama makes clear that they are determined to delegitimize even legitimate criticisms of the senator by mixing them up with smears. Even mainstream journalists have noted that their rebuttal document at times employs risible arguments and overreaches in attempting to defend certain aspects of Senator Obama’s career. One example is the defense of Obama’s relationship to William Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn — two unrepentant former members of the domestic left-wing terror movement known as the Weathermen. Amazingly, instead of disowning Ayers — which would make a lot...

    David Freddoso argues against the notion that Barack Obama lacks a track record, and says Republicans have missed the mark in arguing his inexperience. In his new book The Case Against Barack Obama, Freddoso says that Obama needs to run on the notion that he has no track record, because an examination of his actual work would reveal himself as a hard-Left idealogue instead of a reformer. Politico takes a look at Freddoso’s work: The first serious negative biography of Senator Barack Obama casts the Democratic nominee as a fake reformer and a real liberal. “The Case Against Barack Obama,”...
