Deconstructing Barry

Thomas Lifson over at American Thinker has a very interesting and revealing article about the formative years of the American president that most Americans actually know very little about (largely thanks to an adoring media who never vetted him during the campaign).  In the article, Lifson goes in to detail about Barack Obama's childhood growing up in Indonesia, and how these formative years affects his attitudes and perceptions today, be it his intense dislike for oil companies, his lack of belief in American exceptionalism, and his Marxist ideology.  From the article (emphasis mine):
In his most formative years, the boy who became President of the United States was, in other words, subjected to humiliating, demeaning membership in a lower caste and cognizant both of the seemingly undeserved privileges of children born to high-caste expatriates and the grinding poverty of ordinary Indonesians among whom his family lived. That a deep anger and sense of unfairness would develop in such a situation seems more than likely, laying the groundwork for resentment of American power and wealth, and an embrace of anti-colonialist ideologies which undergirded a quest for political revenge, later in life.
 Lifson concluded saying:
It was not a pleasant life Barack Obama endured in Jakarta as the child Barry Soetoro. Regrettably, all Americans are now forced to share some of his pain.

Indeed.  Have you had enough Hope and Change yet?
