If you don;t understand why President Obama is pushing America in the direction he is, it is because he has a very different concept of how America should look than you & I do. I have friends who believe Obama is evil and I have always said he simply has a fundamentally different view of what is right and good for America than we do.
It seems that I may have been right about that. If you read his book he gives many clues about his concept of right and wrong, but even more important is what he was taught in school. This article by someone who attended Columbia at the same time as Obama sheds quite a bit of light on what and why our President believes and why when he said he would change America he meant it. Complete and total change.
