Barack Obama is a man without a core

The Essential Barack Obama
By Steve McCann
Today the United States finds itself adrift on a sea of uncertainty; its economy floundering under the weight of oppressive debt and mismanagement, its status in world affairs at its lowest ebb since the beginning of the 20th Century and its citizens openly questioning the future. At such a critical time the country has as its President a man unable or qualified to lead.
Barack Obama is a man without a core, leaving the ship of state without a rudder in the management of foreign affairs and domestic policy which have spun dangerously out of control over the past two years. A cursory examination of Mr. Obama's life and accomplishments reveals a man whose life has been centered around the discovery of two personal attributes (as detailed in his autobiography "Dreams from My Father"): his ability to deliver a speech and his skin color in a nation obsessed with guilt for the past. His writings and the sharing of a strong anti-colonialist sentiments with his father (see Dinesh D'Souza: "Roots of Obama's Rage") portray an overwhelming sense of entitlement due solely to his paternal African descent.
While raised in a sea of Marxist and socialist thinking, these philosophies only served to confirm his deep seated animosity toward the United States and the western world and not as a basis for any firm ideological beliefs. Over the years his reluctance to promote the purity of those ideologies whenever given the opportunity confirms that he has never been an abject true believer.
Rather Obama has used and manipulated the true believers into being the foot soldiers for his personal ambitions. The most overused phrase since he assumed the national spotlight is: "thrown under the bus" and it has been so for good reason as in the case of Reverend Jeremiah Wright whose church Obama joined in order to politically ingratiate himself with the Chicago black community.
Out of his Marxist upbringing, Obama has embraced the doctrine of the end justifies the means, but in his case as a strategy to achieve his egocentric ambitions not political ends except to do enough to keep his left-wing base in line. This cynical belief represents the epitome of corruption in any society. A leader within government or the national community at large who is captive to this thinking must be by necessity devoid of ethics, integrity, or morals. Read More
