Why don't we have details of Obama's life or career, even in his official capacity as a state senator? Is Obama truly the haloed saint the media portrays -- is his past squeaky-clean, or uncannily unreal?
Instead of anything substantive to place in Obama's vetting file, we got a vague autobiography and a book of campaign speeches. Jack Cashill, author of Deconstructing Obama, has researched and written much about not only the very questionable authorship of both books, but also the inconsistencies in Obama's life story.
After almost four years into the reality of Obama's presidency, many Americans are beginning to wonder if the portrait painted by the media during the 2008 campaign was fiction, or merely the reflection of their own dreams on the blank screen that Obama offered.
Even the conservative media rarely dug into Obama's past. At least Obama had to deflect some criticism from Hillary in 2008. Now, he gets a free pass from members of his own party and the subservient mainstream. And lately, GOP pundits and candidates have been busy attacking each other.
Ordinary Americans are subjected to pat-downs just for holding a boarding pass. Surely the one who will hold the nuclear football deserves some scrutiny. Obama got away with little investigation for this term, but folks are becoming uneasy about giving him a pass for another four years. They want to know more about the history and character of the person who may have to answer that 3 a.m. call." [American Thinker]
