Who is Barack Obama?

Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUSLIM from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white ATHEIST from Wichita , Kansas.

Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii.

When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia.

When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia. Obama attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a Catholic school.

Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is quick to point out that,'He was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school.'

Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that that he is not a radical.

Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over his son's education.

Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta.

Wahabism is the RADICAL teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world. Since it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran.

Barack Hussein Obama will NOT recite the Pledge of Allegiance nor will he show any reverence for our flag. While others place their hands over their hearts, Obama turns his back to the flag and slouches. Do you want someone like this as your PRESIDENT?

Let us all remain alert concerning Obama's expected presidential candidacy.

The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the President of the United States, one of their own!

Please forward to everyone you know. Would you want this man leading our country?

Your information is all typical propaganda lies. I'm not saying I would vote for him but, knock off the lies of his compatition. The A.C.L.U. is the group bent on destroying the US from the inside out.

Hi there Bob, this became a legal issue due to the fact that Kwame (Mayor of Detroit) and Christine (Deputy Chief) were out of town on a
business trip.
Okay...so far so good.
What they did behind closed doors is a moot point;
he's married and has 3 children, she was married and has children.
Two outstanding, high ranking police officials were 'fired'- they were closing in on details of a party that transpired at the Manoogian Mansion
(city property that houses the Mayor)- and they
lost their jobs. Mayor called party a 'myth'.
Both of those men, along with yet another police officer who was a 'bodyguard' for the Mayor, sued the City and won an award of over 8 million dollars.
The Mayor, before the trial, denied everything.
So, during the trial, he and she both testified
under oath.
Both got caught in their lies.
She resigned her 'position'.
Oh...he helped her get a 'grant' of 12,000.00 to buy her house..........that grant money was to be for people with low income. And, the grant was a 'gift' from a bank that is now backpedaling
about that very grant.
Anyway...after the trial, Kwame said he was' blown away' by the decision that they lied!!!!!
Their text messages to one another were made on
machines paid for by the City of Detroit - yet he claims they are personal. Can't have it both ways.
He got an SUV for his wife using City of Detroit funds - avoided the City Council by going 5.00 less on the lease for the SUV, that way the lease wouldn't have to be approved by Council.
This goes on and on......
THAT is why there is a 'legal' issue....he's a thief and a liar and he is STILL in denial.
He gave a half-hearted apology to the citizens via television - he sat in a church while saying he was 'sorry' to his wife. Who cares? That's between the two of them.
During his apologies he never once mentioned having a tryst that cost the City several million dollars.
Seems strange that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton haven't come to his defense.
The City is going down rapidly and he has the denial mode in full swing.
Perhaps that'll help you grasp the gist of the matter. Hope so.

Same old lies that I've seen so often I can almost quote it word for word. Why don't you hear these "facts" mentioned in the newspapers or the National Enquirer or better yet why hasn't that bulldog reporter Geraldo Rivera investigated this? Even Geraldo isn't that stupid to swallow such a line of sh*t.

we would shut down the country.
The issue here is is Hypocracy!

Spitzer was prosecuting people for doing the same thing he was secretly doing at the same time.

Is isn't it interesting that Spitzer may have started his "Hookerfest" during the Monicagate scandal.

I guess Slick Willie is is an inspiring dude for Democrats.

The rest of the world is laughing about the puritanical Americans who get themselves worked into a frenzy over each new sex scandal. Men in positions of power have had mistresses, prostitutes, you name it since the beginning of time. If you think it will end anytime soon, you haven't a clue.
The idea that the country is going to hell in a handbasket because people have naughty sex is laughable.
Another real issue with Spitzer is is that he may have misused public funds to hide his wrongdoing.

As Slick Willie did, Spitzer has N.Y. State Troopers providing his personal protection, even when he was doodling Hookers in other States. He put these public servants in the terrible position of having to remain silent to protect their own jobs when their duty was to fight crime.

Spitzer should go to jail for violations of the "Man Act".

Great point that Paul has made.

There are many more miscreants of both parties. But the Dems seem better at damage control than Rep for more serious breaches of law and moral perpitude.

So, I look for Eliot to get off easy.

Comrade longgonefor,

You have a history of embracing terrorists over patriots of your own country.

So, if that's your endorsement then if I were Obama I would refuse it because it gives him more terrorist credentials.

When Spitzer made his announcement, there was a spontaneous cheer on the floor of the new York stock exchange. Spitzer had made the mistake of going after the insurance fraudsters and the mutual fund crooks and made some enemies.
The good was that that the US government gave the banks a $200 billion dollar gift to cover their losses. It knocked that story right off the front page

The trouble with that is the only proven fraudster is Spitzer.
