STOP with the rhetoric, OBAMA!!!

OBAMA had a chance to shine in the SENATE for the rest of the year!!!! Instead he continues with his endless rhetoric from the sidelines (there isn't a minute to waste) which is REALLY tiring!!!

If Obama cared about the economy, and the people were hailing him the Messiah, why did he resign from the Senate so soon??????? He could have helped the SENATE with the US automakers case, unemployment, etc. Instead he sells the Olympics in Chicago.

That's because if he seats in front of a group of senators to form solutions, OBAMA will not have a solution. He needs his highly paid advisers from his $600 million dollar campaign to think for him and he would just sell their solution!!!!

Otherwise, Obama is just an empty suit in the Senate. He never really shined while he was in the Senate.

Once again, OBAMA voted "PRESENT" and thought, "I'm outta here!"

OBAMA was a QUITTER and can't handle multi-tasking!!! He had to allocate 2.5 months EXCLUSIVELY for forming his cabinet. That's pathetic. When he becomes president, he needs to be able to multi-task because all kinds of crap will be thrown at him all at the same time!!! And many of them will need urgent attention.

Stop your rhetoric. If you want to really help, then get back to the SENATE because right now, you (OBAMA) are useless.

Gov. Linda Lingle instructed the Hawaii Department of Health to make sure no one in the press obtains access to Obama's original birth certificate. Lingle's letter to WND made clear that the original doctor-generated and hospital-released birth certificate on file with the state's health department would be released to the press if Obama so requested – but to date the candidate has made no such request.

1) When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi.


2) Obama raised $1 million in funds for Odinga’s campaign
http://worldnetdaily.com/index.php...

3) Raila identified Barack Obama as his cousin.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7176683.stm

4) Before the Election, Odinga made a deal with Kenyan Muslim Leaders.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
http://raila2007.org/1109.html

5) Muslim Leaders in Kenya deny that this deal had anything to do with implementing Sharia Law.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7115387.stm

6) When Raila lost the election, the ODM incited violence and hatred towards the Kikuyu minority.
http://www.worldpicturenews.com/web/IndexPage...

7) After the Elections, supporters of Raila Odinga chased Kikuyu men, women and children into a Church in Eldoret - and burned them alive.

http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599...

8) When asked about the massacre, Odinga did not denounce the actions carried out in his name - he could only say that "they did not know that in the church were children which were being kept there as refugees so in the process of cause they set the church on fire"

http://kenyangenocide.blogspot.com/2008/01/ra...

9) Human Rights Watch reports that there is evidence that Raila and his officials were behind the ethnic Genocide. The BBC Reports: "Officials from Kenya's opposition party were behind attacks on members of the president's ethnic group and are planning more, Human Rights watch says..."

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7206658.stm

10) Obama helped Odinga with the skills of " community organizer". Obama knew all the time and gave all the support to Odinga in the killing of the Kenyans CHRISTIANS.

Quick action?
No, what OBama really wants is more mega billion dollar corporate wellfare bills; and OBama wants George Bush to sign off on them, so it won't show on his own record. I think that Bush should just let all the phone calls from OBama and Nancy Pelosi roll over to voice mail until OBama's inauguration. If OBama and Pelosi want more corporate wellfare, then let them do it themselves.
Go ahead, OBama; show the Ameican people what you're REALLY made of.

We do not have a legitimate President as of yet. Sen. Barrack Hussein Obama is being sued in 16*** different courts across America with two lawsuits in the United States Supreme Court requesting he present us with his valid "vaulted birth certificate."

This request by the American public to see his birth certificate is normal and does not cause the average American to hire three different law firms to keep him from doing so. If he is an American citizen, why all the drama, just show us the birth certificate.

If he does not have a legitimate one and is not an American citizen, then he has perpetrated an indictable fraud upon the American people with his senate and presidential campaigns.

Every legal American can in a blink of an eye produce a legitimate birth certificate. Why does he need three, three high priced law firms to keep him from showing us his?

If he is not a legal American, then he did not win the primary and he cannot serve as President under Article 11 of the U.S. Constitution.

Please log on The Temple Hour of Prayer tomorrow, 24th November at 3pm for a full discussion and prayer over this unprecedented religious and political matter in American history.

Peace,

No escaping the facts. Bush has been President since January 20, 2001. Everything that has happened this year has been on his watch.

Was Barack Obama ever a student at Columbia?

Because here’s how one scurrilous compendium of racist smears puts it:
Obama graduated from Columbia College in 1983, and after spending a year in New York, moved to Chicago.

Wayne Allyn Root says,“I don’t know a single person at Columbia that knows him, and they all know me. I don’t have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia. Ever!… Nobody recalls him. I’m not exaggerating, I’m not kidding.

Questioner: Were you the exact same class?

Root: Class of ‘83 political science, pre-law Columbia University. You don’t get more exact than that. Never met him in my life, don’t know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, 20th reunion, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack! Who was he, and five years ago, nobody even knew who he was… the guy who writes the class notes, who’s kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him. Is that not strange? It’s very strange…

When asked about his undergraduate training at Columbia University, The New Times states that Obama “declined repeated requests to talk about his New York years, release his Columbia transcript or identify even a single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years.”

Many of his classmates don’t remember Obama. He’s not in the yearbook. Columbia couldn’t find a picture of him at school.

What can be said with some certainty is that Mr. Obama lived off campus while at Columbia in 1981-83 and made few friends. Fox News contacted some 400 of his classmates and found no one who remembered him.

So are you saying you support or don't support corporate wellfare? It's right or wrong, and OBama clearly supports it. He voted for the first $700 billion bailout, and he is lobbying for the next one.

If Bush did tell them to get lost, then I would have to take a couple of days vacation just to laugh my azz off. He's walking out the door, so no skin off his back either way. I'm sure there are a lot of Republicans telling him to kick it in OBama's corner.
If Bush doesn't sign off on it, then Nancy Pelosi will harp on OBama like a jilted wife until he does her bidding.

The OBAMA supporters voted for OBAMA because they did not agree with the BUSH/Republican's corporate bailout of AIG, FANNIE/FREDDIE.

But now BUSH and Republicans are saying no to the corporate bailout of the automakers. And OBAMA and Democrats are pushing the bailout.

The OBAMA supporters were tricked!!!

1) You're missing (or ignoring) the point: George W Bush is President until January 20th. All this "corporate welfare" you wail about is happening during his Presidency.

2) Right or wrong? I'd say that horse has fled the barn. You'll say it's wrong, don't do it. The better question is, what happens if we do nothing?

If big auto goes under, two million auto workers lose their jobs, and their health insurance. Instead of tax revenue, government pays for unemployment, health care, etc.

That's before all the fallout from the businesses the auto workers spend their money. And the employees of all the auto company suppliers.

Believe it or not, I'm not longing for bailouts. Right now, it's the lesser evil. Real world consequences trump our precious philosophies, which we haven't really adhered strictly to for over 75 years anyway.

The dream of undoing FDR and the New Deal is a casualty of the economic mess we're in. Let it go. It won't happen in this century. And it was always a longshot.

Quick action is what got us the $700 Billion Bail Out without a Single Senate Hearing!

Obama is a dumbarse for calling for more quick action without hearings and explaining to the people what needs to be done.

That quick Stimulus check sure helped, right?

You are missing the point. If they get the bailout, they are going to spend it wrecklessly and will keep on asking for more bailouts.

The bailout is not going to make people buy their American cars so they are still in a whole. They are just paying people who make more money than you per hour to work on products that are just going to sit there and do nothing.

If the Bush administration blows them off until January 20th, then simple as that, it will happen on OBama's watch. Also, 2/3 of Congressional Democrats voted for the original $700 Billion bailout while less than 1/2 of Republicans voted for it. In 2010, the issue won't be what happened under Bush's watch, it will be what happened under OBama's watch and who personally voted for what and when.
