“Being There”

At the risk of bringing forth further charges of “swift boating’…”smear tactics”…. adding to the “thought atmosphere”… previous post….

BCbythesea….although everyone should add to the “thought atmosphere”… in my humble opinion….

Some information out …..about the Democratic candidate for President…Barack Obama…that causes this writer ….an independent voter… and former resident of Illinois…..great concern….

after reading this online story….which hasn’t seen much press…yet?…

that is….. unless it becomes the latest in a long line of questionable actions…in this candidates resume that will be purposely ignored….

‘Obama kept law review balanced’…Jeffrey Ressner & Ben Smith…(pg.2)…

‘One thing Obama did not do while with the review was publish any of his own work. Campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said Obama didn’t write any articles for the Review, though his two semesters at the helm did produce a wide range of edited case analyses and unsigned “notes” from Harvard students.

(Susan Estrich…Attorney/Cable News Commenator/ former Dukakis Campaign Manager/former Harvard Law Review Editor…the first female Editor…14 yrs prior to Obama)…

‘Estritch believes that Obama must have written something published that year, even if his campaign says otherwise.”They probably don’t want [to] have you [reporters] going back” to examine the Review.’

‘(While the Review’s contents are protected by U.S. copyright law and aren’t available online, Politico is providing all front page covers- which include each issue’s table of contents-and represent masthead from Obama’s term as president.)’

How is it possible…if it is not shown otherwise…. that an Editor of such a prestigious paper did not write anything himself?

It just perpetuates….all the “pole vaulting”….the “stretched …revised history”…of his ascent to where he is now…

A journey described through the above links and more….

that reminds this writer…and movie buff…of the novel…from 1971…by Jerzy Kosinski…adapted in 1979 for the movies…which won Peter Sellers the Oscar…….

The synopsis from Wikipedia….

“Chance the Gardner”…….is misunderstood by his hosts…..to become….”Chauncey Gardiner”…

“His simplistic, very serious and in-deliberate utterances, are interpreted as allegorical statements of deep wisdom and knowledge regarding business matters and the current state of politics in America.”
