    Who am I???

    I was born in one country, raised in another.

    My father was born in another country.

    I was not his only child.

    He fathered several children with numerous women.

    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed
    no interest in me.

    My mother died at an early age from cancer.

    Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father not my mother.

    Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

    My birth records were sketchy.

    No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth

    I grew up practicing one faith but converted to
    Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in
    the public eye under scrutiny.

    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

    That was before I decided it was time to get serious
    about my life and embarked on a new career.

    I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.

    It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had
    difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

    I became active in local politics in my 30's then, with
    help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s.

    They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone
    into anything.

    I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.

    Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

    I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.

    This bolstered my ego.

    At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy...

    I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every opportunity to bash my country.

    But what launched my rise to national prominence were
    my views on the country's economy.

    I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could
    do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.

    I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

    It was the free market, banks and corporations.

    I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

    I called mine "A People's Campaign".

    That sounded good to all people.

    I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from
    outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.

    I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could change our country and the world.

    So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were
    on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities".

    My true views were not widely known and I kept them
    unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.

    I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined
    those people I associated with. I'm glad they didn't.

    Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

    And then the world learned the truth.

    Who am I?

    Thank God Obama was born in the U.S.A. There are a few delusional birther nuts left, but they could never derail this great country. Oh, wait! They are in Congress now...

  7. The difference between The two is that one was building a nation and the other is destroying a nation.

    I beg to differ WoodDoc. Both has destroyed, the other is in process of destroying (Fundamental Change) this great Nation. BOTH thought their ideas were for the betterment of society and both merely fed their egos. BOTH have (are using) the best propaganda to overthrow the common man by utilizing fear as a catalyst to motivate. Both are about annihilating the FREE choices of the individual for the good of the group, of course they guide the group (Society)
    It's just a shame, as advanced as we have come, that we are doomed to repeat the past. The similarities are scary from the OP.

    Thanks for the POST, 06
