In one passage, a young Obama sees beggars and wonders, “Will I ever be able to help people like these?”
“Hope hung deep inside of him,” the book adds.
Another excerpt from the book reads: “Before dawn each morning, Barry
rose – his mother’s voice driving him from dream land. ‘Time for
learning English grammar and the Golden Rule. Be honest, be kind, be
fair,’ she taught him.”
The story continues: “One morning, he slipped on the name he’d been
born with. The name of his father, Barack. For the first time in his
life, he wore it proudly – like a coat of many colors.”
Uh oh – another Obama-inspired Biblical reference in a government
school! But there’s no controversy here. Leftists will use God and the
Bible, in instances such as these, when it appropriately fits their
propaganda purposes. No
story about Barack Obama would be complete without mentioning his work
as a community organizer. The book describes those days in dramatic
“The work was grueling, with stretches of failure, and puny patches
of success. Door-to-door Barack went, early mornings, late nights,
pleading and preaching, coaxing strangers to march together, to make
life better for everyone.
“He worked as hard as a farmer, planting the words ‘Yes, we can!’ like seeds in spring.
“Impatient, Barack kept wondering if those seeds would ever sprout. He worried that the hope in him would fade away.”
