Obama Likes to Hide

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

As far as I can tell, Obama never tells anyone about himself. When he is confronted, he whines about being picked on. I am impressed with the way he avoids the questions that are asked of him. But what I am really impressed with is the fact that there is so much about him that is kept quiet. His supporters make little of his past but sell the man as he is now.

Don't people know that his early upbringing has a big influence on how he is now? Why would the L.A. Times put out a false story? There has to be truth some where in that article. What I am afraid of is that if Obama is elected president, then he will show his true self and people will be very disappointed. Based on what I know of Obama, he can't hide the truth about himself for long. All those people who helped him now will come back for handouts when he is president.
