'Two,Three,Many Obamas'

Victor Davis Hanson:
The fringe Birthers made outlandish claims for years that Obama was not born in the United States and therefore was not eligible to be president. But suddenly, after nearly four years of his presidency, we discover that for over a decade and a half Obama’s own publicity bio listed him as Kenyan-born. Why and how did this happen — given that authors customarily write their own autobiographies and have annual opportunities to edit them? Did Obama think that to fudge an identity might make his book on a mixed-race heritage more saleable in 1991, and then himself more exotic as a state legislator and senator in the ensuing 16 years — but for some reason not as a presidential candidate?
What is real and what is not? The Obama “composite” girlfriend who sort of existed and sort of did not? Was there one Obama named Barry and another who became Barack, one with the middle name Hussein that was taboo to utter in the campaign of 2008 and another with the middle name Hussein that after January 20, 2009, was supposed to resonate in the Muslim world?

One Obama was the constitutional-law professor at the prestigious University of Chicago; another was a part-time lecturer who never published and was rarely seen or heard at the law school. One Obama was a brilliant Harvard Law Review editor; another never wrote an article. One Obama had the highest IQ of any entering president and was indeed the smartest man we ever elected commander-in-chief; another Obama proved it by not releasing his college transcripts. One Obama is the fittest and most energetic of recent presidents; another Obama is the most secretive and reluctant about proving it through the customary releasing of medical records.
Why so secretive if there is nothing to hide?Imagine if Bush was this secretive?The MSM would be going bananas,hijacking press conferences,berating Bush constantly about his past,under the idiom of 'our right to know',or in Dan Rather's case,he would just fabricate a story and try to pass it off as fact.

If not for the truth,then for their own fame and fortune their has to be at least one Woodward or Bernstein in the media to go out and dig into this,finding their own 'Deepthroat' that would lead them to the truth,thus making a name for themselves?Is their not anyone in the MSM who is independent and not part of the Borg?
