I'm sure the title of the included article was meant to be an attention grabber, and so it was for me.

If you read this Wall Street Journal article, you'll see that the word "alien" in the title is not a reference to extraterrestrials, or obama allegedly being born elsewhere, but instead refers to Obama's beliefs and state of mind which seem increasingly "alien" to those of mainstream Americans.


A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.

This writer was somehow able to make crystal clear the reasons so many Americans have or are developing a sense of "unease" about Obama and his leadership of this country.
