Dr. Barack and Mr. Obama

An excellent article by the excellent Victor Davis Hanson on the strangely unfocused image of our president.

To which I add these questions:  Mr. Obama was estimated already in 2010 to have a net worth of approximately $10.5 million.  How did he come to be worth so much after a career spent largely as a community organizer in the poorer sectors of Chicago, a state legislator, a part-time lecturer at a law school, and a part-of-a-single-term, very junior senator?  And on what basis does he so disdain the wealthy, “the one percent,” as if he weren’t very much one of them?  (Fat-cat Republican though I am, I’m not worth $10.5 million.)
