Have the American People Woken Up to Who Obama Really Is?

Ben Stein at The American Spectator thinks so. Let's hope he's right:

The American people in their unimaginable kindness and trust voted for a pig in a poke in 2008. They wanted so much to believe Barack Obama was somehow better and different from other ultra-leftists that they simply took him on faith.

They ignored his anti-white writings in his books. They ignored his quiet acceptance of hysterical anti-American diatribes by his minister, Jeremiah Wright.

They ignored his refusal to explain years at a time of his life as a student. They ignored his ultra-left record as a "community organizer," Illinois state legislator, and Senator.

The American people ignored his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar.

Now, the American people are starting to wake up to the truth. Barack Obama is a super likeable super leftist, not a fan of this country, way, way too cozy with the terrorist leaders in the Middle East, way beyond naïveté, all the way into active destruction of our interests and our allies and our future.

The American people have already awakened to the truth that the stimulus bill -- a great idea in theory -- was really an immense bribe to Democrat interest groups, and in no way an effort to help all Americans.

Now, Americans are waking up to the truth that ObamaCare basically means that every time you are sick or injured, you will have a clerk from the Department of Motor Vehicles telling your doctor what he can and cannot do.

Read all of Stein's piece. I truly hope the American people are beginning to rub the sleep out of their eyes and now are seeing clearly that the man who is occupying the White House is a total stranger from the man they thought they were voting for. There's this thing called truth in advertising, and the Obama campaign violated it egregiously. Now, the question is, will the American people rectify this by voting differently in 2010 and 2012 or will they continue to buy the lies and distortions Obama and his minions will advertise again?

It does seem that the American people are waking up if some the latest poll numbers are any indicators. Rassmussen especially has Obama's approval rating below 50% and also has 40% as strongly dissaproving compared to only 29% strongly approving. I beleive that Zogby as well has Obama's approval rating as being below 50%. The month of July has not been kind to Obama.
On a more personal note I went camping with several liberal friends this weekend and while they still supproted Obama they could only describe Reid and Pelosi as incompetant and quite possibly mentally retarded. Quite a change from only a few months ago when a democrat could do no wrong. The Media can provide their fig leaf only so long.

Gee, like the stimulus bill Bush put into effect? Was his the same?

You really should stop harping on this absurd premise that Obama is anti-American. it's pathetic.

In a year from now when we're fully out of the recession and recovering, you people will be commending Bush for that, right. Of course, because you've got hate-filled blinders on.

No wonder you're in the political wilderness. Looks like you're going to stay there.

Wrong, Staylor. Most intelligent people considered Pelosi and Reid useless and always have.

Ben Stein? Are you phucking serious? The guy is an evil shill and an intellectual failure on his best day. Why would anybody care about what this decrepit moron has to say about anything? Oh right, because he's the most prominent of all C-list celebrities who have the cajones to stick up for the Party of Really Great Ideas that Everybody Totally Loves.

Seems like a lot of folks are still hitting the snooze button to me.

The people are slow to arouse, but the media has been even slower. When mainstream media starts to wake up, then we might have a chance.

I live in Ct (that went for Obama) and the daily letters to the newpapers from the people in the last few weeks have been coming down very hard on obama and company.

I do believe people are starting to see him for what he really is...a hollow man, with a big ego, and a nasty underside to him to boot.

He is so out of his league.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft III:

Steve, the Bush bill sent the money directly to taxpayers. I forget the exact total amount. I got $600.00 of my dollars back. Get a check from Obama recently? While the Bush stimulus did not have the desired effect. The Obama one did. It bought votes and paid back favors at our expense. How much does it have to cost you before you wise up?

Hyperbolist: hyperbole. He's at least as credible as Jeanine Garafolo, Ariana Huffington, Cathy Griffith, Adam Baldwin, Julia Roberts, and most of the other Hollywood intellectual luminaries.

Besides, he was Ferris Bueller's teacher. He's a noted educator.

Don't pick on SteveP too hard. Once you've become disillusioned by kissing the Obamassiah's ass, it takes a while to get you're head back on straight. After all, the Dems sell the "Economic Recovery Act" as Bush's budget/Bush's bill. Forget that it was written entirely by Nancy Pelosi and Com. Forget that NO House Republican voted for it. Just remember, "It's all Bush's fault". Barney Frank and Chris Dodd never rolled those dice on the housing market. Franklin Raines never raped Fannie Mae.

Geezus H Christ. Why don't ... (Below threshold)

Geezus H Christ. Why don't you libs get a brain sometime? It is not Bush's fault that Obama is tanking in the polls, it is his and the sycophants that follow him. They are doing that all by themselves with their asinine socialist projects, such as the porkulus bill, cap and tax and now the government run health care boondoggle.

You all think that every thing that has happened in the last 3 years is all the fault of George Bush. He did not take control of the Congress in 2007 and pass massive spending legislation to bankrupt the economy. Now that Bush is out of office, all of the shit that has gone in the last 7 months all belongs on the shoulders of the Dems in the Congress and the White House. The compliant media led by Keith Overbite and Chris Matthews are still cheerleading the mess that we are in.

I agree, the porkulous bill... (Below threshold)

I agree, the porkulous bill that went against every thing Obama ran on and then the prospect of a second bill plus the rush to healthcare all looks like he doesn't understand the will of the people. Because he doesn't. ww

Where I think Stein errs is in stating that the American people ignored his anti-white writings, his ultra left record as a C.O, his total zero of an academic record as a student and teacher, his complete lack of scholarship when he was being touted as a scholar, etc.

People didn't ignore all of this. They were never informed of all of this.

Now that they're finally finding out, they're wondering just who it is that they elected.

It sure as hell isn't the man who campaigned against McCain. This one is doing the opposite of pretty much everything he said he would do during the campaign.

With any luck, Stein will be able to write a followup article asking if the MSM has woken up to who Obama really is.

Yep, It all Bush's fault Obama and His brownshirts are crashing like the Hindenburg.

I will remember that the next time He is on the ballot.

The worst thing about Obama... (Below threshold)

The worst thing about ObamaCare is that after the thing passes it will be impossible to reverse because older people won't be able to get the private insurance coverage back that they got when they were younger and healthier.

Obamacare is not going to pass. The writing is on the wall. It is dead. They are just going through the motions. If it passes it will devestate the Dims in 2010 and the Dims know this.

Medical care handled by the DMV and billing handled by the IRS... where do I sign !!! (/sarcasm)

wishful thinking that the public is waking up to Obama, you give them too much credit, they're no less ignorant now than they were last year. Repeat after me: the public does not pay as much attention or care as much as you do.

Obama's declining numbers have less to do with the public parsing the stimulus or Obama's speeches than with a general 'malaise' over continuing bad news. Ignorant voters thought everything would be better if they voted for Obama, but not because they understood his policies, and now they're registering their displeasure at Obama failing to deliver on their expectations.

Seems to me that the majority of Americans will vote exactly as ABC, CBS, NBC, Saturday Night live, Comedy Central and other prestigious news outlets like that, tell or imply them to vote.

How does one "imply" another to do something?

I imply you to stop using our language as toilet paper, BluesHarper.

What do you expect from a clown who won based on a bumper sticker slogan and a Soviet Bloc style campaign poster?

Why would so many educated people fall for his crap?

Why do I suddenly feel as I was a genius?

I can't speak for others, but I've been wide awake since day zero. Barry's accomplishments prior to being elected president were what exactly? His voting record was to the LEFT of the Socialist when he did bother to cast, and his ceremonial board positions produced no results.
And for the lawyer types: Don't most hot rod firms assign nuisance suits to the underperformers on staff?

"Wrong, Staylor. Most intelligent people considered Pelosi and Reid useless and always have."
I am forced to agree with you but now I am forced to wonder why they are in leadership positions in the legislature; I guess that says alot about the Democrats in congress and the tools who keep voting these other tools in.

Les Nessman:

" How does one "imply" another to do something? "

Easy. You just focus on one Pol or issue and diligently report on any missteps while not reporting the same type of missteps of 'the other side' with the same gusto.

You 'imply' who or what should be voted for by broadcasting jokes and skits against one side but against the other side, not so much.

Etc, etc, etc....

Do we really have to re-hash this? I think most people acknowledge the bias; it's really not in question anymore.

Les, obviously that's what he meant. Note the difference, however:

1) I imply you to vote for Candidate X; vs.
2) I imply that you should vote for Candidate X.

Some people pay to learn how to read, write, and speak English, but here we are, giving free lessons to BluesHarper--aren't we just a pair of Boyscouts!
