Flashback: Barack Obama in Harvard Essay: The American Dream Is to Be Donald Trump

Who cares?

 

Obama has already fulfilled the American Dream for some by getting to spend a night at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Anyone occupying the White House for 24 hours would have accomplished more that was positive for America than Obama.

 

Long before failed president Barack Obama was trashing Trump on campaign stops he was praising him as the “American Dream” come true.

While at Harvard Barack Obama penned an essay arguing the American dream is to be like Donald Trump.

A recently unearthed essay co-written by Barack Obama in 1991 stated that the American dream is to be Donald Trump.

Penned while the former president was a graduate student at Harvard Law — with the help of fellow classmate Robert Fisher — “Race and Rights Rhetoric” summed up the American mindset as “a continuing normative commitment to the ideals of individual freedom and mobility, values that extend far beyond the issue of race in the American mind.”

“The depth of this commitment may be summarily dismissed as the unfounded optimism of the average American, I may not be Donald Trump now, but just you wait; if I don’t make it, my children will.”

The excerpt of that previously unpublished law school paper found its way inside Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, the new 1,460-page biography written by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Garrow that focuses on Obama’s early years.

The Harvard essay also argued that black Americans should “shift away from rights rhetoric and towards the language of opportunity.”

Of course, that was way before he started using politics of victimhood to divide America.

Odd isn’t it, there are no pictures of Obama attending his own graduation from Harvard Law?

 

The paper argued that black Americans should “shift away from rights rhetoric and towards the language of opportunity.”

Though Obama would later channel the “language of opportunity” during his speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention that skyrocketed him into the public spotlight, his legacy has since been tarnished by criticisms of his failure to help blacks, while at the same time nearly destroying the U.S. Economy and our military, making the office of the president a laughing-stock around the world with our friends and enemies alike.
