White House Having a Fit Over Forbes Article

Dinesh D'Souza has written a new book about Barack Obama titled The Roots of Obama's Rage that is due to be published October 4, 2010.

Forbes Magazine has an article in its current issue by D'Souza--"How Obama Thinks"--that gives a sample of what is coming in the book.

Wowzer, the White House is not happy. WH spokesperson Robert "Giggles" Gibbs sure wasn't laughing when he commented that the D'Souza article in Forbes "represents a new low." New low what, Bob? One wonders if Gibbs said the following with a straight face--that the Forbes "attack" comes at a time when there is "no limit to innuendo" against the president, including the "baseless charges" found in the Forbes article. I'm thinking that George Bush could give Gibbs a little help with his hysterical attitude over the concept of "innuendo" and "baseless" coming from the media. Just thinkin'.

D'Souza's thesis in the article is that Barack Obama is the most antibusiness president in a generation, perhaps in American history: Writes D'Souza, "The Weekly Standard summarizes Obama's approach as omnipotence at home, impotence abroad. . . . The President's actions are . . . bizarre." D'Souza says that he was writing a "psychological theory" of Obama's behavior.

As usual, the lamestream media has come to Obama's defense: Columbia Journalism Review this week called the D'Souza article "a fact-twisting, error-laden piece of paranoia" and "the worst kind of smear journalism--a singularly disgusting work."

So what's the deal? Did Obama's handlers really think he could continue to skate by without any scrutiny forever? Evidently.
