Below is a message I sent to a chat friend who wanted to know my views on Obama. And if you scroll down, you'll see what I said followed by my friend's response:

Barack Obama is failing. And failing everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. He is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Obama is failing because fundamentally his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame. Personally, I don't believe he is an American in his views or his history. I see parallels to Hitler with his rise to power, his ridicule of the right, his effort to quell dissent and even having little kids singing songs about him. Scary.

Obama has a self-narrative, much of it fabricated, cleverly disguised or written by someone else. But this self-narrative is isolated and doesn't connect with us. He doesn't have an American narrative that draws upon the rest of us. All successful presidents have a narrative about the American character that intersects with their own where they display a command of history and reveal an authenticity at the core of their personality that resonates in a positive endearing way with the majority of Americans. But not this president. It's not so much that he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, and is historically illiterate and woefully small minded for the size of the task--all contributory of course. It's that he's not one of us. And whatever he is, his profile is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardboard cutout. Moreover, he doesn't command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how things work just don't add up. His descriptions of the world we live in don't make sense and don't correspond with our experience.

HI peach,

I could not have expressed my views any better than you did. I do not think bama even cares about the American people. I would just like to see his birth certificate. Well, if he does not destroy our country or run us into bankruptcy we only have 3 more years. I really feel he is a Muslim with a Marcist agenda.
Have a great Thanksgiving what ever you are doing.
