Sowell Nails Obama as “A Living Lie”

Thomas Sowell posits that Barack Obama’s carefully crafted presidential candidate image is a lie, denying his traditional elitist left persona.

An e-mail from a reader said that, while Hillary Clinton tells lies, Barack Obama is himself a lie. That is becoming painfully apparent with each new revelation of how drastically his carefully crafted image this election year contrasts with what he has actually been saying and doing for many years.1
Senator Obama's election year image is that of a man who can bring the country together, overcoming differences of party or race, as well as solving our international problems by talking with Iran and other countries with which we are at odds, and performing other miscellaneous miracles as needed.1
There is, of course, not a speck of evidence that Obama has ever transcended party differences in the United States Senate.1

Obama’s image is beginning to publicly unravel with the revelations by talk radio and the Internet. The image also took a serious hit during the Pennsylvania debate between Obama and Hillary Clinton. Based upon the uproar from leftist bloggers and columnists, the left is angry that there man is beginning to be shown for what he is: an associate of racist minister and proponent of black liberation theology Jeremiah Wright; an associate with Muslim racist, anti-Semite and head of the Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan; an associate with terrorist and unrepentant former member of the Weather Underground William Ayers; an associate with Palestinian supporter and anti­-Semite Rashid Khalidi; and a holder of elitist leftist philosophy as demonstrated by his condescending characterizing of the people of Pennsylvania as bitter and clinging to religion and guns.

Barack spent some twenty years trying to develop black street creds and political acumen in the rough and tumble environs of Chicago. He succeeded well enough to advance in state politics and on to the U.S. Senate without any serious media examination of his persona. Until the ABC sponsored Pennsylvania debate, the left leaning media pitched Barack nothing but softballs, as their version of serious reporting. They did not treat Hillary Clinton as nicely. Why would they do that? I suspect that Shelby Steele can make a good case for institutional racism, another darling philosophy of the left.

The picture of the couple, who aspire to occupy the White House, is beginning to come into focus. Barack is elitist and leftist. His wife, Michelle, is an ingrate, who personally benefited from American opportunities to attain personal wealth and position only dreamt about by most others.
