Dr. Jack Wheeler Description of Obama-Authorship Confirmed!
Summary of eRumor:
Forwarded emails and discussion forum posts claim that Dr. Jack Wheeler wrote the best description of President Obama ever, summarizing him as “an eloquently tailored empty suit.”
Dr. Jack Wheeler’s commentary on President Obama first appeared at To the Point News (TPP) in 2008, and it has been circulating ever since.
Jack Wheeler is a conservative commentator who printed “0 = ZERO” bumper stickers and tee-shirts (the “O” refers to President Obama) before Obama was first elected in 2008.
Along with that, Jack Wheeler wrote a commentary on Obama titled “The O-Man.” Wheeler later explained that someone excerpted 398 words from his original commentary and it was widely circulated via email.
The commentary begins by stating that Obama is “an eloquently tailored empty suit” with “no resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works” before continuing:
He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.
A portion of the longer commentary that was not included in the excerpt that was widely circulated states that Obama has become “the white liberals’ Christ, offering absolution from the sin of being white.”
The column began widely circulating again at the beginning of 2017 as Obama’s last days in office ticked away.
