Lies from the Republicans continue. Gives very little credence to anything you post when you continue to profess such garbage. Never, ever appeared where you state.THE WASHINGTON POST HITS OBAMA
Finally, the Washington Post and Newsweek speak out about Obama. This is timely & tough. As many of you know, the Washington Post and Newsweek have a reputation for *being extremely liberal.* The fact that their editors saw fit to print the
following article about Obama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. A
At last, the truth about our President & his agenda are starting to trickle through the
protective wall built around him by the liberal media.
*I Too Have Become Disillusioned.**
Matt Patterson (columnist - Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)
Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder,
did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job?
Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into & through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer;" a brief career as a state
legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact *nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present"*); and finally an unaccomplished single

white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor"; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor.
It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?
Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in
Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon
- affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the

The opinion piece referenced above was penned by Matt Patterson and was published (under the title "Obama: The Affirmative Action President") on the American Thinker web site on 18 August 2011. Although the important "who" of the attribution is correct, however, the "where" is incorrect: despite the mention of the Washington Post in the example cited above, this item was never published in either the print or online version of that newspaper (nor, as claimed in later versions, was it published in Newsweek magazine). A possible explanation for the confusion is that someone viewed the list of publications in which Matt Patterson's work has appeared and mistakenly assumed this piece was syndicated to all of them.(Mr. Patterson isn't a "columnist" for any of the newspapers mentioned, but rather an occasional contributor of opinion pieces.)
