Obama exposed as a fraud - a MUST read!

This really should be in GDP!



(CHICAGO)(FEBRUARY 20, 2007) Later today we will issue a special analysis on Barack Obama's first week as a national candidate. It won't be a pretty sight. But before the big picture, we address a more focused picture, the larger deeper truth about Barry (Barack) Obama: the man is a complete fraud.

On August 11, 2004, while Obama was still a candidate, I held a news conference in which I stated, "The man is a complete fraud. The truth is going to surprise, and disappoint, and outrage many people who were drawn to him In the meantime, Crown Books should stop selling Obama's novelization of his life." Well. (The news release can easily be located on the Internet, but here's one link:

Earlier this month, during the period leading up to Obama's declaration for the presidency, we continued to question his qualifications for any office, let alone the presidency.

Monday's Los Angeles Times exploded one of the major myths in Obama's memoir, Dreams From My Father, that Obama had been the spearhead behind efforts to remove asbestos contamination at Altgeld Gardens on the South Side of Chicago:

In reality, Obama stole the credit from real community activists and "organizers" and appropriated their efforts as his own. Obama covered the tracks to his burglary of the truth by using fictional characters to replace the "real" people in the Altgeld episode. It is no surprise that Sweet reports today Obama was "worried about a pending potentially negativestory."

Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times, who is an unabashed Obama-lover, is also an honest journalist. She too, way back in 2004, questioned Obama's use of fiction as fact, and stated, "It is impossible to know who is real and who is not." (Sun-Times, 2/20/07, see,CST-NWS-sweet... ).

Indeed, Ms. Sweet, it is not impossible at all. "Obama" is not real. Mr. Obama is a fictional creation of a very talented and very intelligent bunkum artist, Barry (Barack) Obama. From end to end, from start to finish, Barack Obama is an imaginative self-invention.

In 2004, Sweet writes today, Obama could not remember the identity of one of the key characters in his book: "I don't remember what Smitty's real name was. I think it was Wally." He wrote a book about events that had taken place a few years earlier, and "forgot" the names of his key characters. So much for Obama's respect for fact checking.

Sweet also says that Obama's campaign staffers had to read his book over the past few days to decipher who the "real people" in his book were. They couldn't just ask the candidate. He couldn't tell them. And the man wants to be president? Be real.

Let's be brutally honest: If a white man, or a white candidate (Joe Biden, are you listening?) committed a fraud of this magnitude he would be driven out of the presidential race. But the national media ignores Obama's lies as they shamelessly pander to minority pressures. Biden's lies in 1988 (I was there in Iowa when the story broke) are piddling compared to Obama's prevarications. Biden was pilloried, and is still being criticized decades later, and Obama gets a free pass for his lies.

And Obama has the nerve to say he is being held to a "higher" standard as a minority candidate. Rubbish.

It is time for truth telling, as Barry O likes to say, and it is time for him to tell the truth to the American people and withdraw as a candidate. The Oval Office is no place for affirmative action. We need someone who is a real leader, not a self-imagined leader. Real experience, not imaginary experience, is essential. Joe Biden paid the price for a fictional resume in 1998. It is now long past the time when Obama should have been forced off the national political stage, and sent to Hollywood, where his brilliant fictional talents truly lie.

There is no "affirmative action" credit for the White House. There is only one standard, for Black or White. And Obama has embarrassingly fallen short of the minimum standards for our highest office.

As I wrote in 2004, long, long ago, "The truth is going to surprise, and disappoint, and outrage many people who were drawn to him."

Well, what about it Barry? I mean Barack.

I have previously identified myself in columns as the "man who brought down Obama." He's falling.
