Maureen Dowd, "A Perfect Doll": Sorry, But Obama Is No Saul Alinsky

In her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "A Perfect Doll" (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/11/opinion/dowd-a-perfect-doll.html?_r=1&hp), Maureen Dowd writes:

"With many worried that America is in decline, a prospective race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is being caricatured here as 'Saul Alinsky versus Gordon Gekko,' as Don Baer, a former senior Clinton White House adviser, put it."

Millionaire Barack Obama, who profited handsomely from a shady real estate deal with Tony Rezko after spending a mere three years as a community organizer, hardly deserves comparison with the legendary Alinsky, a University of Chicago graduate who worked his way through school and spent a lifetime assisting poor communities throughout the US. However, I suppose this is how Axelrod will be seeking to portray the election as we draw nearer to November.

All one big mirage . . .
