Posted on 07/27/2012 1:10:14 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
There are Obama doubters and haters out there who claim with righteous anger that they are vetting the president, something they say the mainstream media never did. Some of them have said that my new biography unwittingly, they argue, for I am too dumb to understand what my research has unearthed proves that Barack Obamas defining memoir is phony and that his entire life is a fraud. My intent is not to defend Obama or his book; he can take care of himself, and I have my own questions about Dreams From My Father, which I make clear in my book. But when comparing the liberties Obama took with composite characters and compressed chronology which he acknowledged in the introduction to his memoir to the stretches his most virulent detractors have taken in building their various conspiracies, I believe that they are the frauds and fabricators.

Well, David, I can't answer for anybody else, but my disdain for Mr. Obama stems from his Un-American and Anti-American self, and he has no business leading this nation. (For a start, if you are still interested in my opinion, I can go on.)
He’s a CSer POS kenyan piece of filth who hates American with a burning passion? Could that be it?
Yeah, yeah. The usual liberal “anyone who doesn’t agree with me must have some sort of mental pathology.” I don’t hate 0bama, I despise him, and what’s driving it is that I’m an American who loves his country.
"What drives them? Some of it can be attributed to the give-and-take of todays harsh ideological divide. Some of it can be explained by the way misinformation spreads virally to millions of like-minded people, reinforcing preconceptions. And some of it, I believe, arises out of fears of demographic changes in this country, and out of racism."
Gee. I dunno? Perhaps that he is a Marxist piece of filth who hates America and wants to turn it into another 3rd world paradise like his beloved Kenya, Indonesia or Cuba?
Could that be the reason there Wapo?
Good people oppose abortion, the homosexual agenda, and statism. Obama stands ror those things.
And she pulls the race card.
Again, and again, the liberals are focused on race. I just think obama is terrible at just about everything except snake oil sales.
Maraniss HAD to write something like this.
In his book, he noted so many problems with Zero’s purported narrative of his early life that the other good liberals had to be scratching their heads over what Maraniss was doing.
This article is Maraniss’ way of assuring the liberal establishment that he didn’t really stray off the reservation.
What Maraniss has performed is what was called in the Nixon days a “modified limited hangout” in which a limited amount of damaging information was acknowledged in an effort to protect the revelation of even more damaging information.
Yeah, must be his race, not the intentional destruction of America, that drives us to oppose him... yep, if he were white, we’d be behind him all the way. And if a conservative black candidate were running for president, we’d oppose him because he’s black. Yep, it’s all about that melanin content, not the policy or character.
The left picked 0bama SPECIFICALLY because he’s black so they could deflect all criticism of their agenda with the charge of racism.
Because he hates and is trying to impoverish my country? Because he wants to take what I earn and give it to someone who doesn't work? Because he himself admitted he hates people of my ethnicity? Because he lies to me every day? Because he has made common cause with my enemies?
As Christopher Hitchens said of Bill and Hillary, I don’t hate Barry. I have contempt for him, which is different.
Maraniss is trying to justify his past behavior now that he has been hit in the face with the truth.
He has decided to murder the truth and embrace his past.
It would be better to find out what drives Obama believers and lovers.
It’s gotta be a mental illness.
I absolutely love to see this kind of article. It is the best indication that paydirt has been struck. Maraniss must be getting Holy heck from his lib buds to such an extent that he can’t even show his face around town.
It is only the family budget and livelihood of our kids that Obama has completely trashed....The author apparently thinks that should not cause anyone any concern.
Notice how he waited a while until book sales fell off before writing an attack piece against potential book buyers/readers.
At least Obama does not have to worry about his Harvard Law Review articles being taken to misintepretation by readers....since there weren’t any.
Ten percent unemployment....doubling the national debt...food stamp recipients at an all time high....amnesty for illegal aliens (by Executive Order,no less)....OsamaObamaCare....perverts in the military.....his handshake with Chavez at the UN....my net worth down by 33% in 42 months...."you didn't build that,someone else did"...
The can’t defend their policy or ideology.
And they learned long ago that they don’t have to,
if they simply accuse their conservative challengers of racism or some other PC violation.
I'd like to think David Maraniss is lurking at Free Republic but it's doubtful. However, should he be, here's a list of Sowell's columns that he specifically discusses his reasons for being doubtful of Obama.

“There are Obama doubters and haters out there who claim with righteous anger that they are vetting the president, something they say the mainstream media never did.”
From the tone and context, it seems that anyone who agrees with the second half of the sentence must by implication be a “doubter” and a “hater”.
I don’t have to doubt. I can look things up sufficiently well myself. Take for example that BHO is the “first black president”. But BHO, by his own statements in his autobiography is not “black”. His biological mother was Caucasian. So he is mixed race, no matter what his biological father was.
A little searching shows that BHO’s father was 87.5% Arab. We also know, again from his autobiography, that in his youth he struggled with his racial identity and finally decided he was “black”.
If you mother was not “black” and your father was more Arab than black, how can you be “black”? Only if “black” is not a racial identity but an ideological one.
Putting aside that Bill Clinton was called “the first black president” by a Nobel prize winning poet, Tony Morrison, when leftist talk about “black” public figures, they omit people such as Alan West, and Justice Clarence Thomas. It seems that the only black people who are “black” are liberals. What worries me and is not how black BHO is but how RED.
Besides being the “first black president”, BHO has one more thing in common with Bill Clinton: his account of events and reasons for policy were often more falsehood than truth. It became obvious that with Clinton, and now with Obama, the truth is a lie yet undiscovered.
The man is an American hating Muslim, he breaks the laws set forth in the constitution, he’s a racist and a bigot, He has committed treason on more than one occasion, he and most of his administration are pathological liars and criminals. Need more?
I'd have had more respect for him if he admitted that the mainstream media really didn't "vet" Obama in 2008, and if he didn't make the accusation of racism at the end. He could have done a lot to promote rational discourse if he'd been more honest and resisted the temptation to vilify those he disagrees with.
What Drives the Obama Doubters and Haters?
Love of Country
Love of the US Constitution
Love of God
Love of freedom and liberty
Love for our children and grandchildren’s future
Any other silly questions?
Thanks, saving the list.
Looks like I missed more than half of it.
“What Drives the Obama Doubters and Haters?”
The truth you dimrat fags... nothing but the truth!
Reference please. I get tired of this unsubstantiated stuff being constantly repeated.
The Obama family is more or less pure black African of the Luo tribe. If you believe otherwise, please provide appropriate evidence.
Well, no. You just have to believe in the "one drop" rule as first established by white racist slave-owners in this country and then, with enormous irony, adopted by black racist "civil rights activists."

Maraniss is busted and he doesn’t like it. See list of articles below:

Reality for one.
I don’t hate Obama. I already knew what he was in 2008. Based on that, I knew what he would do for 4 years and know what he is going to do for the next 4.
What I hate is the MSM for failing to do their jobs.
We should all thank Obama for his ‘incompetence’ then.
I shudder to think if he is competent, how much worse shape our nation would be in.
HERE, HERE!!! Well said Sailor. BZ.
Here’s a few more articles that bust Maraniss:
Sanitizing Obama’s Radical Past
David Maraniss in Crisis Over Book Fallout
Ten Things We Learn and Should Have Learned from Maraniss’s Obama Book
My assumption and my understanding is that if you are born of American parents, you are naturally a natural-born American citizen, Chertoff replied. That is mine, too, said Leahy.
Like most everyone who has complied with the Alinsky ridicule tactic, you probably would say, if forced to respond, “Well, natural born citizens were never defined by the Constitution, so it means whatever Congress claims it means.” Can you name any term used in the Constitution and defined by its text? Had you read carefully, you might find one, but the Constitution was explicity, as explained by James Madison, written to depend upon the common-law and language familiar to its framers. That was to protect its meanings from the natural evolution in language. Chief Justice John Marshall, founder, framer, and student at our nation's first law school, created by Jefferson at William and Mary in 1779, restated the common law in The Venus, 12 US 253, citing Vattel’s Law of Nations, our nation's first law book, assigned as the first required text by Thomas Jefferson. Facts, particularly if they are repeated, become boring and ignorable, like the provisions of our Constitution. "Born on the soil to citizen parents" is our common law, never changed, and affirmed by Chief Justice Waite in Minor, and Justice Gray in Wong Kim Ark, and Chief Justice Hughes in Perkins v. Elg in 1939.
Obama was born to a non-citizen, and was, in his own words, born a naturalized US citizen. Native-born citizens are 14th Amendment citizens, naturalized citizens. American Indians were native-born, and not even citizens, because they didn't swear sole allegiance to our Constitution. For what its worth, very little apparently, that is why natural born citizens must have been born to parents who swear allegiance, or inherit it from their parents. Barack Obama is a naturalized citizen, naturalized using the same statute used to naturalize anchor babies. He is not a natural born citizen, and has never claimed to be one.
The Republicans and the media prevented the question from being asked and the courts used standing to insure that it would not be answered. Justice Roberts probably prevented the Supreme Court from hearing any of the many cases asking the Constitutional eligibility question, citing the precedent in Minor v. Happersett. The court can overturn precedent, but they will have to give their reason, and that would expose the subterfuge to citizens too busy surviving to read legal history. This will probably rival his Obamacare decision in establishing Robert's legacy as the truth becomes better understood in years to come.
Actually the title of David’s book should be.
“Obama, the Never-ending Story.”
The life of our first composit President
as told variously by himself.
Sure, David. You can believe anything you want. You can try to convince yourself that this utter nonsense you spout is true. You can go on being a team captain of the WaPo/MSM progressive cheerleaders for 0bama 2012 team. You can do all those things.
What you can't do is make me believe anything you say. Because you're a liar. You say you hold conservatives in comtempt. Well Buddy, the feeling is mutual.
Ping for later reading.
In his book, he noted so many problems with Zeros purported narrative of his early life that the other good liberals had to be scratching their heads over what Maraniss was doing.

That is it, exactly.
The reality that he is an ignorant, narcissistic, talentless, self-aggrandizing a$$ clown who only achieved his position through well-connected socialist-loving $hit for brains libtards passing themselves off as “intellectuals”. Other than that... nothing.
Thank you (#31 and #37), I saw a couple of the articles, and I’ll read rest of them later.
Well David MOrOniss, what drove the hatred of Bush by your POS ilk?
Liberals are a caricature of themselves. What a joke.
Maraniss is trying to make sure he doesn’t get uninvited to all the good cocktail parties.
His gross incompetence as President.
I take public transit.
