Obama a Ventriloquist’s Dummy?

I found this an excellent analysis.  Perhaps you’ll consider exactly who or what is the POTUS … think about it and try to avoid a knee-jerk reaction for 5 minutes.  Thanks.

Article from the Wall Street Journal Forum by Eddie Sessions: 

“I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he’s led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened because at some point early on somebody or some group took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in the White House.

In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry. Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of 45? “Dreams of My Father” was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old. The “Audacity of Hope” followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did write them himself.

There are some who think that his mentor and friend, Bill Ayers, a man who calls himself is “communist with a small ‘c'” was the real author. His political skills consisted of rarely voting on anything that might be deemed controversial. He went from a legislator in the Illinois legislature to the Senator from that state because he had the good fortune of having Mayor Daley’s formidable political machine at his disposal.

He was in the U.S.. Senate so briefly that his bid for the presidency was either an act of astonishing self-confidence or part of some greater game plan that had been determined before he first stepped foot in the Capital.

How, many must wonder, was he selected to be a 2004 keynote speaker at the Democrat convention that nominated John Kerry when virtually no one had ever even heard of him before?

He outmaneuvered Hillary Clinton in primaries. He took Iowa by storm. A charming young man, an anomaly in the state with a very small black population, he oozed “cool” in a place where agriculture was the anti-thesis of cool. He dazzled the locals. And he had an army of volunteers drawn to a charisma that hid any real substance.

And then he had the great good fortune of having the Republicans select one of the most inept candidates for the presidency since Bob Dole.

And then John McCain did something crazy. He picked Sarah Palin, an unknown female governor from the very distant state of Alaska . It was a ticket that was reminiscent of 1984’s Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro and they went down to defeat.

The mainstream political media fell in love with him. It was a schoolgirl crush with febrile commentators like Chris Mathews swooning then and now over the man. The venom directed against McCain and, in particular, Palin, was extraordinary.

Now, nearly a full year into his first term, all of those gilded years leading up to the White House have left him unprepared to be President. Left to his own instincts, he has a talent for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time.

It swiftly became a joke that he could not deliver even the briefest of statements without the ever-present Tele-Prompters. Far worse, however, is his capacity to want to “wish away” some terrible realities, not the least of which is the Islamist intention to destroy America and enslave the West. Any student of history knows how swiftly Islam initially spread. It knocked on the doors of Europe , having gained a foothold in Spain.

The great crowds that greeted him at home or on his campaign “world tour” were no substitute for having even the slightest grasp of history and the reality of a world filled with really bad people with really bad intentions. Oddly and perhaps even inevitably, his political experience, a cakewalk, has positioned him to destroy the Democrat Party’s hold on power in Congress because in the end it was never about the Party.

It was always about his communist ideology, learned at an early age from family, mentors, college professors, and extreme leftist friends and colleagues. Obama is a man who could deliver a snap judgment about a Boston police officer who arrested an “obstreperous” Harvard professor-friend, but would warn Americans against “jumping to conclusions” about a mass murderer at Fort Hood who shouted “Allahu Akbar.”

The absurdity of that was lost on no one. He has since compounded this by calling the Christmas bomber “an isolated extremist” only to have to admit a day or two later that he was part of an al Qaeda plot. He is a man who could strive to close down our detention facility at Guantanamo even though those released were known to have returned to the battlefield against America .. He could even instruct his Attorney General to afford the perpetrator of 9/11 a civil trial when no one else would ever even consider such an obscenity. And he is a man who could wait three days before having anything to say about the perpetrator of yet another terrorist attack on Americans and then have to elaborate on his remarks the following day because his first statement was so lame.

The pattern repeats itself. He either blames any problem on the Bush administration, or he naively seeks to wish away the truth. Knock, knock. Anyone home? Anyone there? Barack Obama exists only as the sock puppet of his handlers, of the people who have maneuvered and manufactured this pathetic individual’s life. When anyone else would quickly and easily produce a birth certificate, this man has spent over a million dollars to deny access to his. Most other documents, the paper trail we all leave in our wake, have been sequestered from review.

He has lived a make-believe life whose true facts remain hidden. We laugh at the ventriloquist’s dummy, but what do you do when the dummy is President of the United States of America?”

The question then is, who is the “voice” behind the dummy?  Who’s lap is he sitting on?  I can only refer to the Bible on that count, “… by their fruits you shall know them.”


  1. GOP Boomer Gal says

    His name is George the Hungarian Devil

  2. Very interesting…

  3. We definitely do NOT know who this man is.

  4. James Davidson says

    His real name is Elmer Gantry.

  5. Thank you for printing this — it shows ignorance can be delivered in print and passed on by bloggers (those 40 people who write for 40 other people who do nothing but read each other, undoubtedly while moving their lips.) He is faced with the “Goose Step” er, ugh, I man “Lock Step” Republicans who say nothing but no and besmirch the name of the GOP — a proud party which once boasted of moderates like the Rockefellers as well as conservatives like Barry Goldwater, who would have nothing to do with the religious right nuts who now control his party. Obama has tried to take on the need for universal health care — something first propsed in 1912, yes 1912 for those people who say he is moving too quickly, by Roosevelt — Theodore Roosevelt, not Franklin D., Theodore — the Republican Roosevelt. Now, don’t get mad and go around throwing teabags — after all, you are following the example of people who wanted to be free of people who think like you!

  6. Tried to read and ponder the message of your two run-on sentences, but after plucking out all the stereotypes and straw men there weren’t enough words left to make a grammatically-correct sentence.

    You used the word “you” a lot. To whom are ya’ll referring?

    Theodore Roosevelt was great. He got a Noble Peace Prize. His most famous two quotes are: “Speak softly and carry a big stick, ” and “Pericardis ALIVE or Rasuli DEAD!”

    The Noble Committee today wouldn’t even speak to him, much less bequeath any Noble on him.

  7. Walter Yensid says

    “Pericardis ALIVE or Rasuli DEAD!” Wasn’t Rasuli a Muslim?

  8. GOP Boomer Gal says


    With all due respect it’s Nobel, not Noble.

  9. Rosco P Coltrane says

    The men behind Obama are the same men who were behind McCain – the ones who decided that McCain should receive the GOP nomination out of nowhere and then lose the election.

    It’s the global bankers, the owners of the private central banks such as the Federal Reserve. The ones who have hundreds of trillions in derivatives just waiting to implode. The ones who destroy you and I through the inflation tax. The ones who loan our government money (when our government could just as easily print it themselves) and then demand interest from the people on that debt.

    Guaranteed someone is pulling Obama’s strings for him. Guaranteed the same people have been pulling the strings of all presidents for at least a century.

    “Pericardis ALIVE or Rasuli DEAD!” Wasn’t Rasuli a Muslim

    He was a local warlord who kidnapped Pericardis to pressure/embarrass the Morroccan government. Pericardis was an American so Roosevelt, to instantly squash any hint of a return to the hostage-taking that provoked the Barbary Wars, ammassed American pubic opinion, and the US Naval fleet to Morocco.

    Pericardis actually had renounced his US citizenship and had left the USA, disgusted, the Moroccan government had nothing to do with the banditry, but with Roosevelt steaming down on them, they managed to quickly get Rasuli to give Pericardis up.

    Roosevelt knew all that, but he had a policy that if the USA government landed hard on any anyone threatening a USA citizen, Americans anywhere in the world would be left alone.
