The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan refers to President
Obama as “... the man people expect to lead...” ["Government
by Freakout" Saturday 23 February 2013] This is odd since
the closest Obama's curriculum vitae gets to the word 'lead' is
his six years sitting at a little desk in the Illinois state senate
waiting for his party leader to come around and tell him how
to vote on the next question.
Compare this to three immediate predecessors: George W
Bush and Ronald Reagan led our two largest states (Texas
and California) for 8 years each. Bill Clinton was Attorney
General of Arkansas, also governor for 11 years.
Obama's next most notable work experience was as
community organizer, a Chicago euphemism for Democrat
Vote hustler – you get a list of voters, if they all vote Democrat in the next election, you keep your
Organizer job – if not, you're out of there!
Had Obama been non-black, he would have needed to buy his
own bus ticket to Iowa in 2007, and been lucky to be met at
the station by his grandmother.
