Barack Obama: The New Face of America and other Realities

The euphoria over the presidential candidacy of Senator Barack Obama in the American presidential race for the Oval Office is now the daily staple of the American news media. Barack Obama sells more newspapers and magazines and atttracts more visitors online. Nobody wants to be left out of the Obamania.

I have read most of the news reports, features and commentaries on the political phenomenon of Barack Obama and this is my critical analysis of this political impressionist, who is the latest poster boy of American Democracy since Bill Clinton in the early 1990s.

Barack Obama's political ambition is driven by sheer intellectual "grit and wit".

I have separated the commonsense from the common nonsense, because of the ignorance and gullibility of most people who have joined the personality cult in millions.
Let us separate the fantasy from the reality.

Who is really Barack Obama?
Senator Barack Obama is the Hawaiian born son of a black African student, Barack Obama, Sr, from Kenya and a white American woman Ann Dunham from Kansas. You can read the rest of his melodramatic story in his autobiography, "Dreams from My Father" and his book of political thoughts and other opinions, "The Audacity of Hope".
Barack Obama became an American celebrity overnight when he made headlines as the first African American Editor of the Harvard Law Review in 1990.

"Any idiot can run for president."
~ Ann Coulter

Ann Coulter said, Mitt Romney was more likely to be sworn in as the next President of America than Barack Hussein Obama, but that was before Mitt Romney gave up after losing to Senator John McCain in the Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses on February 5, 2008.

Ann Coulter said, Barack Obama has locked up Hollywood money, but that was before Hillary Clinton trounced Barack Obama in California to win the biggest prize of Super Tuesday. The uproar over the endorsements of superstars Oprah Winfrey, Senator Edward Kennedy, Caroline Kennedy, California’s first lady Maria Shriver, Robert De Niro and other Hollywood superstars could not stop Hillary Clinton from winning the approval of the majority of voters.

You have to read Ann Coulter’s political satire of Barack Obama in “Jonathan Livingston Obama” or her New York Times bestseller "If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans" anytime you are bored.

On Barack Obama’s “Boneheaded” Estate Deal with Antoin “Tony” Rezko, the convicted Chicago slum Landlord.
I have read all the details of the complicated relationship and I have my conclusion in a single sentence.
If the 1992 Whitewater estate scandal could not stop the Clintons, then the Antoin “Tony” Rezko scandal cannot stop the Obamas.

Barack Obama has explained his non-committal or neutral votes in the Illinois Senate and the US Senate and his press statements have put the issues raised to rest. The Planned Parenthood has addressed his vote against the Induced Infant Liability Act in the Illinois Senate in 2002 and Obama’s moral resolution that the decision on the choice to save any unborn baby that survived an abortion should be left to the woman is quite rational.

On whether America is ready for a non-white President?
Of course.
Retired General Colin Powell, the former US Secretary of State would have become the first African American President of America in 1996 if he wanted to, but he declined and President Bill Clinton had his second term. Majority of Americans, regardless of their color, class or creed, are ready to elect the first African American President of the United States, so racism cannot stop Barack Obama, except the majority of American women who are supporting Hillary Clinton for President.

My criticism of Barack Obama is on his hypocritical personality in contrast to the open book personality of Hillary Clinton.

‘I opposed DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) in 1996. It should be repealed, and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying.
~ Senator Barack Obama in a 2004 letter to the Windy City Times, a publication for Chicago Gay Community to support his election into the US Senate and in 2006, Barack Obama voted against the Federal Marriage Amendment.

How can someone who claims to be a baptized Christian support gay marriage and the adoption of children by gay couples?

No true Christian will oppose the DOMA and oppose the amendment to ban gays and lesbians from marrying, except he is insane. But Barack Obama had to support gay marriage and gay couples adopting children, because of his desperation to win the votes of gays and lesbians to become the next President of America.

He said Hillary Clinton will say anything and change nothing to have her way, but Barack Obama is actually the one guilty of such double standards.

Obama is trusting in men rather in God to make him President. He wil be dissapointed at the end of te day. The Bible says by their fruits we shall know them, Obama may be a christian but nnot a born again christian
