Dinesh D'Souza: How Obama Thinks


Barack Obama is the most antibusiness president in a generation, perhaps in American history. Thanks to him the era of big government is back. Obama runs up taxpayer debt not in the billions but in the trillions. He has expanded the federal government's control over home mortgages, investment banking, health care, autos and energy. The Weekly Standard summarizes Obama's approach as omnipotence at home, impotence abroad.

The President's actions are so bizarre that they mystify his critics and supporters alike. Consider this headline from the Aug. 18, 2009 issue of the Wall Street Journal: "Obama Underwrites Offshore Drilling." Did you read that correctly? You did. The Administration supports offshore drilling--but drilling off the shores of Brazil. With Obama's backing, the U.S. Export-Import Bank offered $2 billion in loans and guarantees to Brazil's state-owned oil company Petrobras to finance exploration in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro--not so the oil ends up in the U.S. He is funding Brazilian exploration so that the oil can stay in Brazil.

So far, this is the best article I have seen yet that comes close to explaining what and who this nation voted to send to the White House in November of 2008.

See also the White House response here.

My take is, given the derision displayed by the White House over this, Mr. D'Souza must have hit pretty close to the center of the target.

No surprise here...the sheeple elected an empty suit controlled by the Soros puppeteer whose goal is to destroy the USA. O has no clue what he is doing and is going to make Carter appear to be a genious!

I hope the fraud that is Obama will be exposed for all to see before the damage he is doing becomes irreparable.

And I fear that point isn't too terribly far away.
