I find it interesting that Stanley Dunham, grandfather of a president, has the same chin as John Kerry, obviously planned to be a president/major component of world affairs from a very early age (like when Kerry was sailing with then Senator/soon to be president Kennedy in 1959.)

It's an interesting read. It is feasible.

Actually the economy was quite robust then (much as I am not a Reagan fan... truth is the truth)...for those who didn't mind to WORK for what they earned.

For the palms outstretched waiting for them to be greased off the backs of OTHERS hard, honest earned dollars crowds, not so much.

Oh, what a tangled web we libs weave when we first practice to aggrieve!

Let's review: Democrats and civil rights leaders are busy conducting a ridiculous witch hunt against a harmless Missouri rodeo clown who dared to wear an Obama mask.

Oprah played the race card on a Swiss shop owner, whom she dubiously accused of denying her a look at a $35,000 handbag because she is black.

P.C. mau-mau-ers steamrolled Paula Deen over three-decade-old comments.

And feminists continue smearing Republicans as "War on Women" misogynists, while enabling Democratic perv predators Bob Filner, Elliot Spitzer and me for years. Oh and for years worshipped Kennedy predators who drowned their dates when they became inconvenient, but then had a problem with waterboarding terrorists.

Now, along comes left-wing rap mogul Russell Simmons this week promoting a racially shocking, rape-mocking YouTube video depicting a Harriet Tubman "sex tape" with her white slave master. Tweeted Simmons late Wednesday night: "Funniest thing I've ever seen." The Obama pal and outspoken liberal linked to the vulgar video on his "All Def Digital" YouTube channel.

He's "Def" all right. Tone Def as a doorknob. Social media users of all races and political backgrounds immediately rose to condemn the pornographic skit degrading an American heroine.

Adrienne Gravish wrote: "I am livid and disgusted. I actually feel like (vomiting). Utter disrespect of Harriet Tubman's legacy and what she fought for." Roland Martin wondered: "Do ya even understand the degradation of Black women during slavery? They were RAPED!" Zerlina Maxwell pushed back against Simmons' "sex tape" spin: "Dear Everyone: It's not a sex video. Stop putting "sex" in your headlines about Harriet Tubman.#rapetape"

Britni Danielle of clutchmagonline.com summed it up: "Casting an obese Harriet Tubman to play into of the negative stereotypes about Black women's bodies? Check. Portraying Black women as Jezebels who use sex to get what they want? Check... This video is not only completely unfunny, but it's a slap in the face to Harriet Tubman, as well as the millions of enslaved African Americans who suffered through the unspeakable horrors of slavery."

BUT INSTEAD OF CALLING FOR PUBLIC BOYCOTTS, PROTESTS AND JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATIONS, THE NAACP GRIEVANCE-MONGERS HELPED SIMMONS OUT by privately advising him to take down the video.

The tolerance mob's crusaders against rodeo clowns couldn't let a rape video clown knock them off message!

Isn't that the most important thing to O'bama? how bad the Economy is doing?
Republican Nightmares Come True: Weekly Unemployment Applications Drop to 2007 Numbers

In more bad news for the Littles, the government also reported that it’s on track to post its lowest annual budget gap in five years. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that the annual deficit will be $670 billion for 2013, which would mark the first year that the gap between spending and revenue has been below $1 trillion since 2008. No you can’t blame the 2009 budget on Obama, as the budgets are made the year before and the budget year ends Sept. 30.

So, the stock market is hitting new highs, June posted a huge budget surplus, the deficit is lowering dramatically and we have improving unemployment numbers, eh? It’s a full on Republican nightmare.

Expect your conservative friends to respond to this good news with a hysterical non sequitur like,“Benghazi!” If Republicans can’t impose universally long-lasting gloom and despair on the half of America that they really, really hate, then they’re just going to close their eyes and pretend it exists until Mommy and Daddy let them sleep with the Fox light on.

a poll is no indication of how the economy is doing.

You probably won’t be surprised to hear that voters are poorly informed about the deficit. But you may be surprised by just how misinformed.[...] Hal Varian, the chief economist of Google, offered to run a Google Consumer Survey — a service the company normally sells to market researchers — on the question. So we asked whether the deficit has gone up or down since January 2010. And the results were even worse than in 1996: A majority of those who replied said the deficit has gone up, with more than 40 percent saying that it has gone up a lot. Only 12 percent answered correctly that it has gone down a lot.

Am I saying that voters are stupid? Not at all. People have lives, jobs, children to raise. They’re not going to sit down with Congressional Budget Office reports. Instead, they rely on what they hear from authority figures. The problem is that much of what they hear is misleading if not outright false.

Doc’s State of the Birther Address

The conspiracy theory I call “the birther movement” has been around 5 years now and over that time we’ve seen an Internet rumor grow to a national phenomenon, where most people know about it and at one point more than half of Republicans believed it. Books were written, web sites created, over 200 lawsuits were filed (all without success), and the President himself addressed the issue in a special press conference on national television.

Clearly much of energy behind birtherism was political. Support for such beliefs was strongly skewed toward people leaning to the right politically, and if any one birther demographic were signaled out, it would be old conservative southern white guys. Today, however, political motivation is waning as the focus of presidential politics moves from Barack Obama to the 2016 election. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said the a political movement based on “angry white guys” is not sustainable.

The 9/11 truthers were largely left-leaning at the start, and focused on President George W. Bush. In 2006, as the administration of Bush wound down, activism from the left died down, and truther activists are now comprised mainly of far right groups: Constitutional Party and Libertarian supporters, folks who are prone to conspiracy belief in general. What we see among the Truthers is a shift from political motivation to classic conspiracy theory thinking, and an overall decline in activism.

With the birther movement, I think that we’ll a see similar shift this year. The racial bias that underlies much of the movement will remain and I expect that “angry white guys” will continue to be the core demographic, but general right-wing activism will decline, while general conspiracy thinking and racial bias will provide any new converts. The President is scheduled to leave office in January 2017, and that leaves hardly any opportunity for new lawsuits, although Orly Taitz continues her individual legal efforts to pry documents out of the federal government.

....What I see today is a lack of enthusiasm among birthers. Many birther web sites have gone inactive. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Cold Case Posse is about the only news-making activity going on, and that initiative really has nowhere to go1 besides making money from Mike Zullo’s new book. On the other hand, I think that low-level birtherism is with us for the long term, settling down among all the other many conspiracy theories (Freemasons, black helicopters, New World Order, chemtrails, HAARP, alien abduction/UFO cover up, and on and on) that haunt the back alleys of the Internet.

Obama was the bastard son of Frank Marshal Davis, and Obama's mother was nothing more than some white trash tramp that was dumped by two husbands because couldn't keep her drawers up.
Obama's name was "Barry Soetoro" when he supposedly transferred from Occidental to Columbia. The name "Barack Hussein Obama" must be accompanied by official documentation describing the change of name process undertaken.
Let's take a look at that Columbia file on Obama.
during the time O'bama went to college there was a quota that Jimmah Carther put into place--all state universities would have to have 10% foreign students--O'bama would have been well received. Many were moslems from Iran, Iraq, Kuwait and Pakistan.

Reagan's trickle down economics trickled right on down into the Clinton administration.

Clinton got lucky with the dot.com bubble until it burst. He had a Republican-controlled Congress in his last six years and was smart enough to move to center and perhaps a bit to the right of it.

Clinton reaped the rewards of Reagan's trickle down economics and going along with his Republican Congress and had a stroke of temporary luck.

But he loosened the lending standards to nonqualified home buyers during his first two years with his Democratic congress and set the stage for the housing market crisis.

So, basically, Bush inherited the dot.com bubble burst, 9/11 after five years in the making and the housing bubble/mortgage crisis. Clinton could chill with his intern but Bush got blamed.

Go figure.

Why do the birthers keep going with long discredited theories?

"My theory is this: it's not rational. People aren't rational. There are more than 300 million people in this country. At any given time some of them are doing crazy stuff. Usually it doesn't get attention. We happen to pay attention, which makes us victims of a sort of anthropic principle -- we're surrounded by a puddle of poo and start looking for all the grand meta-wherefores. It's just a puddle of poo, because poo happens."

"I think there are some that don't really believe in the birther lies but are cynical enough to repeat them. I think some of it is actual trollish behavior in that they think if they spread the lies long enough it would somehow hurt the president. It just shows they don't really have anything else. If you've listened to the GOP debates for the most part the Republicans are running against this fictional president they've created who has raised taxes, gutted the military, hurt our national security, etc. This is really all they have."

"Also, quite a few birthers have dabbled in other conspiracy theories. NWO, 9/11 truth, bigfoot, aliens. For whatever reason (I'll let the psychs amongst us define it), certain people in our society are so insecure that anything bad that happens to them and theirs has to be somebody else's fault - Illuminati, blacks, immigrants, Democrats. I've yet to run across a birther who has a rational thought process, so anything that goes against their perceived worldview must be a result of fraud or theft. Everyone is in on it."
