We've Figured Him Out

by Ben Stein - July 24th, 2009 - American Spectator

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth.

Ben Stein is one of the most intriguing people in politics. He hangs out with people on the 'left', more than the 'right', yet his writings are always more 'right' than 'left'. This open attack of Barack Obama surprises me. It does not seem typical of Ben Stein. Yet he really has never been someone you could get a firm handle on. Very interesting article, not alone because of who wrote it.
