Examiner: Obama Biographical Distortions

Much about the Obama biography - accepted and repeated by the adoring media - is obviously false. The Washington Examiner has done a 4 year tardy investigation. It's fascinating how he went through his life having accomplished nothing before becoming president, but more importantly, having stood for nothing.

But beyond the spin and the polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer but rather a classic Chicago machine pol who thrives on rewarding himself and his friends with the spoils of public office, and who uses his position to punish his enemies.
