One obvious aspect of the President's personality is how academic he is. He'd be a lot happier if the Oval Office came with a blackboard at which he could give lectures. To non-academic audiences, however, the President can be less than galvanizing. From USA Today: Obama makes rare campaign trail appearance, people leave early BY... Read More
At first glance, Barack Obama: The Story appears to be a vast heap of random details obsessively piled up by veteran Washington Postreporter David Maraniss. Maraniss hit pay dirt with bestselling biographies of Bill Clinton and Vince Lombardi, but his latest is an amazingly tedious read. His “frenzied fact-grubbing and fanatical boredom” (to quote Kingsley... Read More
“Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining. Stop grumbling. Stop crying. We are going to press on. We have work to do.” [Obama to Blacks: “Stop Complaining. We Have Work to Do“, OpposingViews.com, September 25, 2011] President Obama’s rather startling reproof of his black critics at the...

How did we wind up with another lightweight in the Oval Office? Ron Suskind’s upcoming book, Confi
President Barack Obama was marketed to America as the magic cure for its racial divisions. But in my bookAmerica's Half-Blood Prince Barack Obama's “Story Of Race And Inheritance”, based on a close study of Obama's own much-purchased, little-read autobiographyDreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, I argued that Obama was in fact...

Barack Obama is the most powerful man in America. And David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, [Email him] is one of the most powerful figures in American journalism. So, not surprisingly, reviewers of Remnick's new Presidential biography/doorstop, The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama,have prostrated themselves before Remnick with the same shamelessness...

In his State of the Union speech on Wednesday, Barack Obama attempted some rhetorical recalibration to win back the trust of white America. Notable from VDARE.COM's point of view: despite repeated announcements to the Hispanic press that he would push for amnesty in 2010, Obama's only mention of immigration was calculatedly vague: "And we should...

Many wild rumors have circulated about Barack Obama, such as That he was really born in Kenya and thus isn't eligible to be President. That he isn't black because his father was 7/8ths Arab. That he is a practicing Muslim. That his real father was a Communist poet, Frank MarshallDavis. That Bill Ayers ghostwrote his... Read More

Although Barack Obama spent 20 months running for President, he never quite found the time to tell us much about what he would actually do in the White House. Yesterday, he announced something he forgot to mention during thecampaign: A massive public works effort that he says "will mean 2.5 million more jobs by January... Read More
[VDARE.COM note: Steve Sailer's book tentatively entitled The Half-Blood Prince: Barack Obama's "Story of Race and Inheritance" will be available ANY DAY NOW!] At the Republican convention, VP nominee Sarah Palin famouslyobserved: "I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'communityorganizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities." This wisecrack evidently got under the... Read More
[*VDARE.com note: If you're not familiar with the song My Kind Of Town(Chicago Is), click here to hear Frank Sinatra sing it.] Did you know that now-convicted fixer Tony Rezko, who funneled $250,000 in campaign contributions to Sen. Barack Obama from his initial campaign onward, got his start as a big-time Chicago operator back in... Read More
A new but characteristically confused debate over whether race is a biological reality reminds me of the value of having a simple definition of "race" in mind. Left-leaning British-Indian science journalist Kenan Malik's latest book, Strange Fruit: Why Both Sides are Wrong in the Race Debate,has so far only gone on sale in the U.K..... Read More
Senator Barack Obama's image as a “racial reconciler”seems to rest largely on the happy mixed race home in which he grew up, where young Barack worked on grooving his golf swing under the stern but caring tutelage of his ex-Green Beret dad while his anti-Communist immigrant mom washed his golf shirts so he'd look nice...

The gleaming image that Senator Barack Obama has so artfully created for himself as a combination of all the best qualities of Socrates, Neo from The Matrix, and Jonathan Livingston Seagull was sullied last week by revelations about his close friends Tony Rezko and Jeremiah Wright, two very different but very representative citizens of my...

Real estate is a preoccupation of most American adults in their private lives. Yet it is almost ignored in our public discourse… at least until it becomes unavoidable, as during the current subprime mortgagemeltdown, which is endangering the entire economy. Real estate is famously all about “location, location, location”, which generally means “neighbors, neighbors, neighbors”.... Read More
You can blame winter for the slow erosion of Senator Barack Obama's image. As I've been noting going back to my January VDARE.com article on Obama, much of what you hear about the fashionable Presidential candidate ranges from wishful thinking to sheer ignorance to outrightdistortion. More recently, I wrote in The American Conservative one of... Read More
