Is There An Imposter In The White House? An Excerpt from "Hope Is Not A Strategy" -- By John Mariotti, Forbes

There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding? Maybe the “birthers” were a little extreme, but is there something wrong with this “manufactured candidate,” whose history remains sealed from public view? What is he hiding?

Could the “Hawaii birth certificate” be a forgery? Is there something much worse—like “sponsorship” by an unnamed special interest? I don’t know. I do know that the man in the White House now is an imposter. The only question is which kind of an imposter: an incompetent “pretender” or a genuine phony, a “Manchurian candidate,” who is a liberal, ½ black and ½ white, and an obvious Muslim sympathizer (despite claims of being a Christian—in clear conflict with his non-Christian behavior).

Will this campaign expose him as the imposter, and the pretender his behavior has revealed? Will it expose his hidden history and murky background. We know about his failures and mistakes.

For those who don’t, here is another in this series of revealing excerpts from HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY: Leadership Lessons from the Obama Presidency. The book is now available on www.amazon.com in paperback and Kindle versions. Other in e-book versions are available at www.smashwords.com.

Excerpt from the chapter: Beware the Pretender:
…”No matter how many times President Obama refers to the “problems he inherited,” he has now been in office three years. Certainly many of the current problems can be traced back to events that happened during the eight years that Bush held the top office, and some can be traced back to even earlier presidencies—but far from all of them.
Many of the problems are newly created (or made worse), and Barack Obama owns them. Candidate Obama stepped up and essentially said, “I want the job, and everything that comes with it” by running for president. After three years in office, the problems now belong to him and his presidency. He caused them, made them worse, or didn’t solve them. Either way, they are his now.
…In leadership, you cannot “pretend” to be a leader. You either are—or you aren’t—a leader. One or the other will become apparent very quickly.
If you want the leadership job, you must step up and take full ownership of it. A “pretender” or “poser” is like an actor who has learned all the right lines, but has no idea what they mean. Once the script has been followed (or deviated from), the actor is clueless about what to do next. This is the job of the leader. Unfortunately, in this government, the “directors” often seem clueless, having learned in academia where results and wins/losses are theoretical, or in politics where success (at getting elected) is more a matter of rhetoric than results.
If you are not ready for a position, or do not believe that you have what it takes to rise to the challenge (or clean up the mess even if you believe it is not your mess), then do not take the job. This was Barack Obama’s fundamental mistake. He grossly underestimated the difficulty of the position he was running for, and overestimated his preparedness to actually do the job. Just because he could “talk a good game” (thanks to a phalanx of speech writers and the omnipresent teleprompters) does not mean he actually knew what to do or how to do it. The presidency of the United States of America is not a place for heavy OJT (On-the Job-Training)….”

After the first three plus years of the presidency, it is painfully clear that Barack Obama was a “pretty face,” and “glib speaker” and a lightweight liberal politician with a community organizer/radical background. The American people should be outraged at this man’s behavior and even his candidacy. Why are they not? Because of the misinformation delivered by sympathetic liberal/mainstream media who loves his nonsensical form of governing.

…”Obama’s perceived preparedness for the presidency is a terrible delusion, from which it is difficult to escape. Mistakes build upon each other and result in even more complex problems. Difficult problems that are mishandled become even more difficult to fix. When you have too little experience, lack substance (other than the words of your latest speech), then leading, managing and problem solving simply don’t happen. And that is what has occurred. When you compound the problem by surrounding your self with like-minded theorists, lacking in real-world experience, things become worse yet. The theoretical solutions to problems often don’t work due to the messiness of the real world—and the reasons are almost unfathomable to these rookie executive/politicians. …”

What should Americans think about this “imposter?” Will he divulge his true background so we can all see who he is and where he came from—really? If not, is this just a man who should never have been sworn into the office of President in the first place, and who has crippled Americans miserably during his term?

Will we continue to believe his misstatements (the politically correct term for lies)? Can he simply use the media to “erase and forget the past three years of misery and missteps?” Or will we learn from his imperialistic behavior and terrible results and throw him out in November?

That is what why we wrote HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY: Leadership Lessons from the Obama Presidency.

There are thirty chapters that reveal what was behind Barack Obama’s mistakes, failures and lack of leadership.

    2. Wait... what part of : 'Many of the problems are newly created (or made worse), and Barack Obama owns them. Candidate Obama stepped up and essentially said, “I want the job, and everything that comes with it” by running for president. After three years in office, the problems now belong to him and his presidency. He caused them, made them worse, or didn’t solve them. Either way, they are his now.'

    3. Nothing wacky at all about the article. If anything, the situation is far worse than portrayed. Thanks America, for voting in this toxic piece of debris.

  2. Fear is agreat motivator. More and more people are learning this truth about BHO. He has no background that he is willing to divulge.

  4. At the end of the day, the news media is responsible for ignoring this fraud's past and continuing to ignore it and he's in the White House because of it. If 0bama were a Republican, the news media would be knocking down doors to unearth his past. It's sickening how the news media are nothing but WHORES for their socialist, 0bama-loving handlers. There are no journalists anymore. Not a single major news network has vetted 0bama. There is still an eerie silence on that issue. Sheriff Arpaio is a decent and honorable man who has told us there are troubling indications 0bama's birth certificate are forged, along with his Selective Service card. 0bama's SSN was issued from Connecticut. 0BAMA NEVER RESIDED IN CONNECTICUT. Can we get the media to investigate just this one bizarre occurrence please? Hello????

    1. Yes, and he got his concerns published in the former Soviet Union, wonder about motives? Forbes made a big mistake and they're trying to correct it, but don't let them, make them take responsibility for passing along gossip to the weak minded.

    2. Remember, whether Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, they are on the same team and work for the same hidden people.

      Think of it like the Colombo's, Gambino's, Genovese's etc

  5. Maybe we should include references to and quotes from "The Manchurian Candidate" and "1984" in all postings to serve as a reminder of what we're facing.

  6. Perhaps 60 years of dumbing down and leftising the media were all part of the grand plan?

  7. I would not call what the networks are giving out as "news". It's more like infomercials. Anyway, it's not only shame on them, but shame on the millions of voters who vote without being informed. Shame on those Americans who only look at what Obama is going to appropriate from someone else and pass off to them. Shame on the Congress that looks the other way when they know the President is trampling the US Constitution.

    1. I remember once Dan Rather breaking in on CBS This Morning with the promo for the evening news... "Here's a preview of tonight's news!" This was at 8 o'clock in the morning. Dan Rather, the Seer, KNEW what the news of the day would be before the cock had crowed thrice!

  8. This is a little off-topic but not by much becasue every bit of this nefarious activity is part of the Marxist plan:

    I would like to know how much communication there has been between the Sanford Police AFSCME union steward and AFLCIO headquarters in Washington. Foot-dragging by Sanford police in charging Zimmerman with manslaughter gives the rabid Left time to whip up racist hatred that Sharpton & Jackson peddle. Police depts across the country are "organized" under the auspices of AFSCME which in turn is bossed by Richard Trumka's AFLCIO. Trumka is a big booster of OWS, racial unrest, labor unrest and whatever other kind of unrest will help the communist Left create chaos.

    Now, in light of the above, ask yourself why Bill Lee, the police chief in Sanford Florida, "temporarily steps down" as chief of his dept in the middle of the biggest case of his career. Why would he do that? And why would he AND his immediate superior City Manager Norton M. Bonaparte, Jr. choose NOT to answer any questions following the announcement of Lee's hastily arranged sabbatical? Lee is the one who decided not to charge Zimmerman. And he ducks out? It's a rotten shame Trayvon paid the price of violence with his life. It's a rotten shame Zimmerman wasn't taken into custody until the facts of the case are known. But the rottenest shame of all is how the Chief of Police in Sanford Florida took the easiest way out instead of doing what he is paid for: TO KEEP THE PEACE! What's up with the Chief? Whose pocket is he in?

  9. The great FORBES actually censored themselves and removed the article!

  10. Someone can't handle the truth?
    Or are the threats sufficiently threatening that even 'our' media will spike it's own story?
    "What we have here is a failure to communicate."
    And we will perish for lack of knowledge.

    Blithely conflating facts in evidence (see findings of Arpaio Cold Case Posse) with mere gossip is a trademark tactic of cowards, deniers, agnostics, and Obamabots ... but then again, here I've just repeated myself three times.

  13. Your premise is wrong. It's not that BHO was underprepared and is now over-his-head. That his intentions should be viewed as good, but only naive and misdirected. No, his ultimate goal/agenda is to collapse American. On as many differents fronts as possible; financially, socially, militarily. The progressives got a "two-fur". They got a marxist masquerading as the first black American president and he was untouchable since any policy or background criticism of him would be labeled racist.

  15. most of them are crooked, how can senators and congressmen vote themselves a raise over and over when it is supposed to be a public service and use our tax money to take trips on private planes blah blah blah i can go on forever, but it takes forever to raise minimun wage, and they are printing so much money the $$$$$ is worthless. and lastly obama looks like a MONKEY!!! we do still have a right to free speech under the 4th amendment right?

  16. Obama's only stated reason for not making his records available is essentially that it will not settle the questions. That is an absurd condemnation of the American voter. He should be man enough to shine the light anywhere there is a question and then trust the people to decide. Anything short of that makes him an imposter, indeed.

  18. Obama is a Usurper, non natural born Citizen, installed I by the NWO Central bankers, to effect the dissolution of the US Constitution , and US Citizens' sovereignty. When there is no legal President, whom is the executor of the laws, then there is no law, no Constitution, and no "United States"

    Obama was born British of a British subject father ("an improper ascendant" (improper ancestor)--- see Federalist 68)), and is likely still British today, and is the front-man of the Rothchilds.
    Obama 2 would not be eligible if born on the Oval Office desk---- because he was born of a foreign father--- and he said so---"Dreams FROM My Father".

    American law (SCOTUS Precedent):
    "The Constitution does not in words say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners." 88 US 162, 167, Minor v, Happersett (1874)

    Natural born Citizens are born to US Citizen parents (2) on US soil, so that no foreign influence or allegiance is installed at birth. The founders were wise, and we were stupid.

    See Deuteronomy 17:15--- it is against the law of nature to place one who is a foreigner, and not your brother, over you as a leader.
