There was evidence early on that he was a narcissist which is what the Dean of the Law Department at the University of Chicago said about Obama in an interview. He was also upset because Obama was supposed to be working on a textbook for the university yet he worked on his book instead. The university paid him for the textbook but he never delivered. By the way the Dean was African American.
It’s widely known that Obama embellished many things in this book. The bottom line is he was a very privileged child attending private schools when he was young and getting free rides to great universities despite not having the grades in high school that would allow most students to get in. The book was supposed to be a story about race but quite frankly he had what African American’s would call a “white experience.” He didn’t have a story of a struggling African American fighting his way through discrimination and becoming successful. He tried to hide from this and that’s why he embellished so many stories.
Even though he made up stories in his book, the mainstream media gave him a pass. The interview at Fox News with Gerald Early, a noted professor of English literature and African-American studies at Washington University in St. Louis, summed it up when he said: "It really doesn't matter if he made up stuff, after all, it's like you going to a psychiatrist and you make up stuff, and the psychiatrist can still psychoanalyze you because they're your lies."
Most African Americans don’t care that he embellished his stories (a.k.a. lied), and with this in mind we can’t get through to mentalities such as this. If President Bush wrote a book and he made up some of the stories, Democrats and the mainstream media would’ve attacked him ruthlessly. As a conservative this is what we’re up against. Democrats attack Republicans over issues that actually are double-standards. They know they’re lying but they do it anyway; to them it’s just politics to us in the real world it is corruption.
Obama got a great ride throughout life because of his race. Why else was he elected President? Why else was he awarded the Nobel Peace Prize when he hadn’t done anything to deserve it? How did he get into Ivy League schools when he didn’t have the grades in high school?
Even though Democrats couldn’t wait to get their hands on Bush’s SAT’s and college transcripts (of which they ended up looking really good), they wouldn’t release Obama’s. There’s only one logical reason for this and that is Obama’s grades were worse than Bush’s. So they make Bush out to look like an idiot yet he proved to be more academically adept than Obama.
Democrats and the mainstream media spent eight years demonizing a very good man as both George and Laura Bush have always had a heart for helping people and they’re both still doing it to this day. If you compare the character of the Bush’s to the Obama’s it’s not even close. I guess good character doesn’t matter to Democrats; the proof is in their love for the Clintons.
