President Obama’s Day Of Reckoning

In his article, “What Happened to Obama? Absolutely Nothing” (The Wall Street Journal, August 13-14, 2011), Norman Podhoretz describes President Obama as ” a genuine product of the political culture that had its birth among a marginal group of leftists in the early 1960s and that by the end of the decade had spread metastatically to the universities , the mainstream media, the mainline churches and the entertainment industry.  Like their communist ancestors of the 1930s, the leftist radicals of the ’60s were convinced that the United States was so rotten that only a revolution could save it”.   At the tail end of his run for the presidency, Mr. Obama, in a rare moment of candor promised: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”  Referring again to President Obama, Mr. Podhoretz concludes: ” He is still the same anti-American leftist he was before becoming our president, and it is this rather than inexperience or incompetence or weakness or stupidity that accounts for the richly deserved failure both at home and abroad of the policies stemming from that reprehensible cast of mind.”

Mr. Podhoretz has an intuitive understanding that communism is a social cancer that can metastasize and destroy all social organizations.  If he had knowledge of sociopolitical characterology he would easily recognize Mr. Obama as a pseudo-liberal/communist character.  There can no longer be any doubt about the socio-political agenda of the pseudo-liberal/communist character.  His stated personal agenda is to appear and act like a loyal American.  His unstated political agenda is to bring America to its knees through a process of socialization and, at the same time, to subordinate it under the authority of the United Nations.  This goal is similar to the bygone Soviet Union’s stated goal of international socialism.

Mr. Obama’s day of reckoning is Election Day, 2012 at which time he will have to convince the leftist ideologues that supported him for the presidency in 2008 that he is still committed to transforming America into a socialist state and, at the same time, he must once again successfully deceive millions of well-intentioned but misguided American voters that he is a loyal American.


  1. The Obama presidency provides a good opportunity to demonstrate to the public at large how his words, actions and policies (along with their short term results and mid to long term consequences) accurately reflect the definition of the “pseudo-liberal” that I read about in your book, The Emotional Plague.

    It would be interesting to see if a well-written, concise booklet documenting his presidency and released before the 2012 presidential election would be helpful in educating the voting public about the dangers of the pseudo-liberal policies and the damage that they do to the well being of the United States and its citizens.

    Looking forward to “Neither Left Nor Right”

    • Obama as an example of a pseudo-liberal character is discussed in my forthcoming book, “Neither Left nor Right” which should be published before years end.

      • A well-written booklet documenting Obama’s presidency that exposes him as a pseudo-liberal/communist character would be helpful if people understood the significance of sociopolitical character.

  2. Thanks again Dr. Konia for these thoughts and insights, which I always look forward to seeing.

    I cannot get Obama’s words “fundamentally transform” out of my mind. Not “improve.” Or “make better.” Not even “continue to develop our strengths while addressing our weaknesses.”

    “Fundamentally.” “Transform.”

    • Well stated Dee. The implications of Obama’s words have a chance of becoming more apparent and transparent to a greater number of people when seen along side a more rational and constructive approach as shown in the words you wrote “improve, make better “etc.

      Much appreciated
