Here's my problem with Obama...we don't really know him. he spent most of his life
offshore in other countries so the connection to be "American" is suspect to me. Why aren't the other black leaders vouching for this guy. I was expected Jesse Jackass and Al Sharpton would rally to his side, but not a whisper. what gives?

He's too white?

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

so which president in your lifetime has even come close to doing that which you seek?

what I'm getting at is, we as a people will only get 5% of what we want out of a candidate, if that. the rest, we have to hope and pray they don't turn into tyrants.

what concerns is this Obama guy rising to run the most powerful country in the world and nobody is the least bit weary. it's like a lull put on the minds of America.

this country will erupt into Anarchy if Obama wins. just the facts

Kennedy, Clinton, they had good politics. Understated not the best personal decisions. But the country was in MUCH better shape.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Here's my problem with you....three clicks to find this....do some research and report back you lazy fuck.

Obama was born on August 4, 1961, at the Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Obama, Sr., of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya, and Ann Dunham, a White American from Wichita, Kansas. His parents met while both were attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where his father was enrolled as a foreign student.[3] They separated when he was two years old and later divorced.[4] Obama's father returned to Kenya and saw his American-born son only once more before dying in an automobile accident in 1982.[5] After her divorce, Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, and the family moved to Soetoro's home country of Indonesia in 1967, where Obama attended local schools in Jakarta until he was ten years old. He then returned to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents while attending Punahou School from the fifth grade in 1971 until his graduation from high school in 1979.[6] Obama's mother died of ovarian cancer in 1995.[7]


Barack Obama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I challenge you find ANYTHING that says he spent the majority of his life in a foreign country.

No, but I strongly believe that he, and his people, do... Pretending that he has no power as President of the United States is just feeding into their plan for our future. DO NOT DO IT!

Don't believe everything you think
