In other news, it looks like our inexperienced new President has made another bad mistake. He was looking to make the Olympic games into some sort of heroic celebration of his tenure as President and the IOC sort of choked on the idea.
I watched some tape of Obama's pitch to the IOC and it was a lame attack on the U.S. and a pathetic request for them to sign-off on Obama's partisan ideology. As far as I can tell, the Obama administration invested a lot more time and energy into this mission than they are letting on. It was a terrible mistake. It is all the worst because it follows in the wake of Obama's failure to sell his health care proposals to the American people.
Update - May 2013: Although Obama has been re-elected, I still think it is important to remind people that he has been among some of our worst Presidents in terms of the damage he has done to the economy and the job market. As I have indicated in the past, the young Obama was an all out Marxist socialist extremist when I met him in 1980.
Ironically, new research by David Maraniss confirms that young Obama was in the San Francisco area at exactly the time when I first indicated that I confronted his naive faith in a coming Communist revolution. For my confrontation with David Maraniss, please check out this article at American Thinker.
Here is the Youtube video of me and Maraniss together at Occidental College. According to Maraniss, he did not know that my story was out there until after he published his book. This is obviously crazy. My take on young Obama appeared in about four other books before Maraniss published his book on Obama.
I think Obama's ties to Bill Ayers and Alice Palmer demonstrate that he never really abandoned his socialist point of view. At the very least, Obama has never explained his conversion story. I have a conversion story. Where is Obama's? Meanwhile, I am surprised that there has been so little attention devoted to the fact that the young Obama acted like a white guy while he was at Occidental College. To read my take on young Obama's cultural identity, please check out my new article, White Like Me.
