When he was running for re-election, I asked his supporters if they had read his book, "The Audacity of Hope". None had-- but I did! And though I pointed out that he had acted AGAINST all he said he was for, it wasn't enough to make them think or read the book or reconsider their choice.

Most of his supporters can't read -- your request was pointless.

Isn't it baffling? You would think they would really want to know who their candidate is and what he really believes. Dreams of My Father was also very telling, but they either ignored it as fiction or just didn't care. What most still don't know today is that the latter book was actually based on his real father, Frank Marshall Davis, who was a devout communist that hailed from Hawaii. He impregnated Dunham during a 60's tryst they had that received little attention during those days. He was the real reason his momma sent him back to HI at an early age to be mentored by his real father.

Bob Woodward may not appreciate how lethal the bullet was he fired at Barack Obama last week. In the last five years of American history, a national journalist contradicting the president about big news—like the origin and impact of the sequester--is a rare, subversive act.

To an astonishing degree since he arrived on the national stage, the national story has been whatever Obama wants it to be, and decidedly not what he doesn’t.  If others journalists follow Woodward’s lead, Obama will have to operate in an environment where the major media covers him, instead of fondly echoing him.
