It turns out that the roots of the friendship may have been seeded long ago. Back in 2008, Percy Sutton, a leading African-American Civil Rights leader, claimed Obama had got his admission to Harvard through a man named Khalid al-Mansour, who supposedly worked for one of the wealthiest men on earth, Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulazziz. The story was 'proven false' by Politico, and given Mansour's own skeletons, it was a very good thing for Obama. Former Black Panther Mansour

Does 1979 newspaper column shed light on 2008 campaign story?

Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer — Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.

Al-Mansour told Jarrett that he had presented the “proposed special aid program to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz” in September 1979, and that “the first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in December.” Maybe so, but I looked high and wide in newspapers in 1979 and 1980 for any other stories about this aid package funded by OPEC and never found it verified.

Like the article says, "there's a lot of things that make you go hmmmm." And these kinds of stories never seem to go away.

What do you think about the article, "Trinity Church members reveal Obama shocker?!"

This stuff never seems to end.

Just read the article on the...

"Down Low Club." WND. If this is not true then why would anybody risk themselves to make up such a tale? It don't make sense.

As has been asked before. Name ONE , just one plan or idea any different from what Mitt wants to do and what Bush did. The middle class has been trickle on way too long by people like Mitt making $57,000.00 per day and paying 13% taxes while doing it. Hell no we don't want Bush country back!!
So you think what Obama is doing is working?????? Obama, by his own admission, has set a new normal where 8 percent or more unemployment is acceptable. He has set a new normal where trillion-dollar defects are acceptable. He has set a new normal where paying for groceries with food stamps is expected. Why does anyone still support this man? Even if you "care for the little people" at the expense of the rich, how does 8 percent unemployment help the working poor? How do tremendous federal deficits, which are going to ruin our economy, benefit the elderly when their Medicare and Social Security will not be there after we go over the fiscal cliff?

Obama and the Democratic Party are sending this country over a fiscal cliff. The continued support for this man and his policies will do more harm to the poor in the country than any perceived insults received from Republicans.

I just don't understand why Obama has the support he does. I'll see you at the bottom of the cliff, if we survive.

President Obama is a very smart and tactful politician. He knew what he was doing last night.. It was like Ali did to his opponents; "rope a dope". He got the Mittens to disclose his entire agenda so he could study it and diminish it properly.. Watch and learn from one of the best in the business of Politics. Round #2 on the way!
...has nothing to do, he got a real challange, no teleprompter, or has no real plan, but to destroy everything he touches?

Everyone is wondering why Obama didn't mention the 47% remark by Romney...

My opinion would be that it had something to do with the 2007 tape that was found..

I had wondered when a relative would step forward. I bet there will be more.

(Reuters)- The father of an American bodyguard injured in the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, said on Wednesday the State Department should own up to what he said were its mistakes and release more information about what occurred.

David Ubben, 31, suffered broken bones and other injuries in the September 11 attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

As David Ubben recuperates at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center outside Washington, his father, Rex Ubben, said he did not blame the State Department or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for his son's injuries. But "I do find it troubling that they have not owned up to their shortcomings; in government, in the military, and in business, if something goes wrong, you admit it, correct it, and move on," Rex Ubben said.

"If you were in charge, it was your fault," he said in an email exchange with Reuters.

And as voters prepare to decide whether to back Obama or his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, many of the job market's vital signs are faint:

— More than 5 million people have been out of work for six months or more, up from 2.7 million when Obama took office. Before 2009, in records dating to 1948, the number of long-term unemployed had never reached 3 million. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has called long-term unemployment a "national crisis" that is causing millions to lose job skills.

— Pay for private-sector employees, when adjusted for inflation, has dropped 1.6 percent since Obama took office. In a weak job market, employers have little reason to offer significant raises.

— The percentage of Americans either working or looking for work fell to a 31-year low of 63.5 percent in August. That's partly because the vast generation of baby boomers has begun to retire. But another key factor is that hundreds of thousands of Americans have given up looking for work.

— More than 23 million Americans are either unemployed, stuck in part-time jobs because they can't find full-time work or want a job but have stopped looking. Romney used that figure to attack Obama's economic policies in Wednesday night's debate.

Few economists expect the job market to return to full health soon. The Federal Reserve, for instance, doesn't foresee unemployment falling below a normal level of roughly 6 percent before 2016.

Well, we finally get to grade the Harvard graduate when he was left to stand or fall...on his own. No media to side with him. No Hollywood 1%er's throwing their star weight around to help Obama out, no teleprompters, no excuses and no blaming. We got a first hand look at what Obama is really made of...and all I can say is shame on America. Shame on you morons for falling for all of Obama's crybaby excuses for his many failures, shame on the media for aiding the democrats and Obama in misleading the public concerning Obama's greatness.

When left to his own devices...Obama proved he has no business being president now or ever!

If current voter registration trends continue, both the Republican and Democratic parties may have a serious numbers problem. A closer look at the data in these states also shows that Democrats appear to be losing registered voters the fastest.

During their 90-minute debate on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama talked four minutes longer than Republican challenger Mitt Romney. But when the debate was over, it was what Obama didn't say that defined the evening - and helped make it a good one for Romney.

In a debate that largely was a mix of campaign talking points and tedious policy detail, the themes that Obama's campaign have emphasized to drive down Romney's approval ratings did not surface.

In wrapping up the debate, Obama again avoided the anti-Romney themes that have been hallmarks of his campaign.

Instead, Obama acknowledged there were areas in which he had fallen short as president.

"You know, four years ago, I said that I'm not a perfect man and I wouldn't be a perfect president," Obama said. "And that's probably a promise that Governor Romney thinks I've kept."

Yes. 700,000 jobs lost per month when Obama took office and now 30 straight months of job growth. That seems to the majority of Americans better than we were. You Repubs have memory lost BIG TIME!
