The Obama YOU DON'T KNOW:

Among the victims interviewed, POOR BLACKS WHO HELP EXPOSE "the Obama You Don't Know".

Chapter 4: FOR THE SLUM LANDLORD'S DEFENSE, Barack Obama, Esq.

It was a frigid January and the slumlord who put his tenants on the street without going through the required eviction process got off with a $50 fine. His lawyer went on to be elected president of the United States.

Chapter 5: Obama's toughest critics on the LEFT

Long before he ran for president, radical critics accused Obama of SELLING OUT CHICAGO'S POOR to the Daley political machine.

Chapter 6: The poor people Obama left behind

Altgeld Gardens housing advocate Hazel Johnson welcomed the young Obama into her kitchen. Then she NEVER HEARD FROM HIM after he won his first election.

Chapter 7: The myth of Obama as state senate reformer

When the real reformers asked for his help, State Sen. Barack Obama was NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

Chapter 8: Obama's state pension fund scheme

State Representative Obama was able to PRESSURE STATE GROUPS TO FUNNEL PENSION MONEY TO BIG DONORS (such as major Obama bundler John Rogers, Jr.-- who, after racking up very poor returns for years was eventually fired -- and America wonders why Illinois and its pensioners are in a major-league fiscal mess).

Chapter 9: Obama's Arab-American network

MUSLIM SYRIAN emigrant Tony Rezko had lots of Arab-American friends in the Chicago business community who shared his enthusiasm for Barack Obama.

"Beyond the spin and polls, a starkly different picture emerges. It is a portrait of a man quite unlike his image, not a visionary reformer, but a classic Chicago machine pol."

Chapter 1: A CHILDHOOD OF WHITE PRIVILEGE, not hardship

Michelle Obama says "Barack and I were both raised by families who didn't have much in the way of money or possessions." In fact, for much of his life, Barack Obama has enjoyed privileges and opportunities denied to most Americans.

Chapter 2: Myth of the 'rock star' professor

Though initially popular as a University of Chicago Law School adjunct lecturer, he was not ranking among the top professors, according to student evaluations. He ranked in 27th among students as a lecturer.

How soon we forged; Bush left office with a 21% approval rating. Sad. It's going to take Obama 8 years to began to fix those problems. Obama will be voted back into office in 2012.
All you say is great and all that, HOWEVER, by obama's own words spoken during the campaign and when he entered office.

10 Trillion dollar national debt is a disgrase
Pass my stimulus bill so that unemployment will not go over 6%
I will close Gitmo in the first year I am president.

Now allow me to judge his words against his actions

National debt is over 50% higher than when obama took office about 10.5 trillion to today's over 16 Trillion

Stimulus was passed so that unemployment would not go over 6%, well today the official unemployment rate is 8.1% over 33% higher than the obama promise and with people dropping off of the unemployment rolls after exhasting their 99 weeks and the underemployed, many economist are setting the actual rate at closer to 15 to 20%

I do believe that as I type Gitmo is still open

Three broken promises, the man is a great talker, a little light on results.

Now, feel free to explain how George Bush made obama not keep his promises.

On a personal note I but precious metals, me the person hopes obama wins, me the American understands that we can not stand another four years of failure.

Blacks have discovered Obama for what they suspected he was to begin with: the NEWEST in a long line of black would-be-messiahs/hucksters who were also at first described as charismatic, inspirational, visionary, and eloquent. Those names include the likes of Marion Barry, Carl Stokes, Coleman Young, Richard Hatcher, Kenneth Gibson, and Lionel J. Wilson.

Each failed miserably, and though black people are loath to acknowledge that fact out loud, deep down, they know it. Black politicians -- especially of the liberal Democrat bent -- are all doomed to failure because each one believes he's the second coming of Dr. Martin Luther King. Their shtick is all the same: lofty rhetoric, pretensions of divinity, charm that inspires unquestioning, religious-like devotion (sound familiar?).

AS A FORMER JOURNALIST, I've learned that most polls commissioned by news outlets are done not to reflect reality, but to distort it. In the same way Hollywood has discovered it can cheaply FILL AIRTIME with so-called "reality shows," news outlets have found they can fill their pages with polls.

Book it: Romney's going to win this election in a romp come November. I'm certain of this because there is a key factor that's being overlooked this time around -- BLACKS HAVE LOST THEIR PASSION FOR OBAMA.

I see that LOSS REFLECTED IN THE FACES OF MY FELLOW BLACKS, who at the mention of Obama's name no longer beam with rapturous joy -- something we blacks normally reserve for winning lottery tickets and intimate getaways with persons not our spouses. As the saying went in the 'hood where I grew up: "If he looks happy, he's either hit the number or he's cheating."

I also hear it in their voices. Back in 2008, when blacks spoke of Obama, it was like they were describing an encounter with the divine. Obama was "The One" and the "savior of the black man," as my Aunt Gladys shouted over the telephone to me after learning ... Blacks are clearly engaged in excuse-making for a failed deity.

But most of all, I see blacks' loss of passion for Obama in their eyes. Before, when blacks spoke of Obama, they looked you square in the eye with confident, euphoric gazes, much like a cat eying a cornered mouse. But the reality of double-digit unemployment, diminishing household incomes, and soaring gas and grocery bills sank in long ago in the black community. Now when blacks talk about Obama, their eyes are listless and dull, almost despondent.

Oh sure, when it comes to their waning ardor for Obama, blacks put up a good front, especially around whites -- i.e., pollsters. But I know my people "like every square inch of my glorious naked body" ...When in the wrong and confronted by whites, blacks will always hide their true thoughts and feelings.....

Sorry to throw water on your hateful swill, but African-American Mia Love is a mormon. She was elected by 60% majority in Saratoga to the Republican congress.

Love was a huge hit at the GOP convention. The young African-American woman had only two minutes to win over a crowd of overwhelmingly white delegates. She received a standing ovation and chants of "USA!" The next day, all the American news channels featured her. That afternoon, her name topped word searches on Google. She's a mother of 3, only 30 years old, a fitness teacher and graduate in Arts.

MSNBC, the racist news channel, the main rag piece perpetuating Barack's lies dropped her appearance from their broadcast.

Clinton during the 2008 primaries for Hillary complained that 4 years ago, this guy Barack would have been carrying her bags. How do you like them apples??? Clinton's top mentor was a KKK member. Only a racist would toot that he was the first black president while being a white guy. You tools GET USED Democrats. You always have. Barack uses blacks mercilessly and forgets about you. This is about as bad as the KKK.

I love it when a person can NOT deny my facts and figures and only supplies his opinions and speculations. Fact is that this country has been in worse shape over the last four years than at any time since the great depression. Fact is that many economist are stating that when the tax increases for obamacare and other things go into effect after his reelection that it might and most likely will be worse than in 2009. SO, you think that 16 trillion national debt, over 5 trillion of that added in the last four years is a GOOD thing? Do you think that the percentage of national debt owed to a non frient like China is a good thing.
Like I stated when obama gets reelected it will be great for me and bad for the country. Spot as of today is about $16700 and $34. This does not speak well for the American Economy.
I am not going to deny that the economy is in the worst shape since the depression. What I am contesting is when conservatives say that Obama's policies did not help, when they did. When O got in office we were losing 700k jobs a month, now we are gaining thousands of jobs a month.

The ones blinded by racism are those deluded folks who think we don't have other reasons for voting for Obama and against Romney that are shared by people of other races, including many whites. In addition, Romney has lately been publicly making racially tinged remarks, a good example being one he made before the NAACP, which consists of black folks who are accomplished in their own right. The remark he made about "free stuff" was especially offensive, because he was tying welfare to black folks. He has tried pandering lately to Hispanics, after he is on record as making offensive remarks about them as well. He's even insulted whites who are among the 47% figure he quoted. But I say, let him keep talking. His own mouth provides the most compelling reasons to vote against him.

Thank you for proving my point, you can not deny my facts, so you must envoke the name of the man who is four years out of office.
obama is an economic failure, an economic failure by his own statnards and beliefs. When he took office he stated that a 10 trillion national debt was a disgrase, if the congress would pass the stimulus bill the unemployment would not go over the 6% mark and he would close Gitmo during his first year. Now, how many of thos promises has he kept?
A ten trillion debt, he did not create but inherited. As for the stimulus, Obama actually said unemployment would not go over 8% since unemployment was already over 6% at that time. That was a bif gaffe on O's part since every single economist said that it was impossible for the stimulus to take effect immediately.

NAFTA and the Glass Steagall repeal are from the 1990s and no one has attempted to "re-do" either action or modify either. Nothing like this changes- but keeps getting added to in the same way over time with each administration.

As far as Ron Paul goes- he was against the repeal of Glass-Stegall:
