Dorothy Rabinowitz: The Alien in the White House

Worth a read...

A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.

Rabinowitz goes on to catalog the evidence that the President does not identify with the most profound and deeply cherished values of the country he leads; his exile of the bust of Churchill, his hapless Attorney General who can't bring himself to speak the truth about the nature of our terrorist enemies; his chief terror advisor who uses the Islamist name for Jerusalem ('Al Quds') and declares "violent extremists are victims of political, economic and social forces," another chief advisor who apologizes to China for the USA's human rights record

The beliefs and attitudes that this president has internalized are to be found everywhere--in the salons of the left the world over--and, above all, in the academic establishment, stuffed with tenured radicals and their political progeny. The places where it is held as revealed truth that the United States is now, and has been throughout its history, the chief engine of injustice and oppression in the world.

The Obama fanboys are in a massive state of denial about the president's ingrained hostility toward fundamental American values, but facts are stubborn things.
