Maraniss is not at all happy about the curious fact that Obama skeptics seem to like to read about Obama more than Obama supporters do.
Hey – he’s the Magic Negro. What more do you need to know?
Obama possesses an impressive understanding of the conventional wisdom. But he seems averse to original thought.
Of course. Original thought is risky and might disturb the Faithful. Better to fit himself into the stereotypes and become the Obamassiah than strike out on his on and impair his career prospects.
Time and again, Maraniss reassures us that Obama was never quite as leftist as all of his Marxist Muslim millionaire buddies from Pakistan. Well, okay …
Yeah, that would take commitment and passion, two characteristics that seem absent from Obama’s character except when it comes to himself and his own advancement.
