We have a sitting President who constructed his own identity. Maybe that's why no one knows for sure what his birtth name really is, because he seems to have more than one, along with a few social security numbers...or so they say. Obama's election four years ago was the biggest mistake Americans ever made. If this bionic fraud is elected again, the death knell will ring for this once wonderful country.

Ever since the 2008 campaign, many voters, and some journalists, too, have felt they know Barack Obama's life story. In fact, the story they know is the one Obama told them.

Obama's first memoir, "Dreams From My Father," published in 1995, has become the semiofficial record of his life. But it is not the complete record of his life. It's partially fictionalized, with composite characters who Obama has always acknowledged were created to make the story read better. It focuses on a few themes Obama wanted to present to the public about himself. And, as with any memoir, it is told completely...
