Do you believe he's Muslim (not dangerous, in my opinion). Not a U.S. citizen? Ridiculous, IMO.
no and no, but i do believe his sympathies are with the current uprisings in the middle east and africa, and that this is part of his anti-colonialism coming to the surface. i believe these uprisings will leave the muslim countries in extremist hands and that the people will suffer for it. i do not think that obmam cares beyond seeing that the dictators supported by the colonialists, are gone.
dangerous truths: i suppose that's a little vague, but let me try it this way: if you had a republican running for president who had been brought up in an extreme right wing family, with extreme right wing mentors. had gone to a very conservative college and by is own admission sought out the most conservative professors. had never done much work for pay but had volunteered his time in extreme right wing organizations led by, and populated by extreme, and even violent right wing people........
what if that candidate went to a church and the pastor preached the black people were getting what they deserved because _____(fill in the blank). would that make you wonder what this right wing candidate really thought about black people?
would you be concerned that this person might not be a good leader? would you expect the press to have done a little background research before the election? how would you feel if they didn't, or if most of the records of the republican candidate were locked away so that the public could not examine them?
then, thinking that maybe you could learn something from the writings of the candidate, you buy his books only to find out that what is written is not true....
what if, the more you found out about this man, the less seemed real? what if he became president and began to enact his extreme right wing dreams??
And the Churchill bust? The colonial regime purportedly tortured Obama's grandfather. Are you at least happy that the Lincoln bust sits there instead, Lincoln being Republican and all?
most of what obama wrote in his book has now been proved, to be kind, untrue. some of us would call that lying, but....
this story about his grandfather has been researched and while it is true that his grandfather was an anti-colonialist, the majority 1st person accounts of the time in question, from those who worked with him, say the story of his arrest and torture are untrue. the only verification of the story comes from obama's grandmother, but she's the same one who said obama was born in kenya, so we already know she's not accurate, right?
what i expect from our president is that he act like an adult. in all our families, bad things have happened. we get over it. if you are going to be president, deal with what is, not what you perceive to have been some slight to your family way back in the past. if he wants this new and improved future, he should stop acting like the black community organizer with a chip on his shoulder, and grow up.
lincoln: i am not a big fan. lincoln was the first president to completely toss the constitution in the trash and get away with it. we don't know how many people died because of what he did and the entire economy of the south was destroyed, never to really recover.
he got away with it because what he did he did for good moral reasons. enough people believed that to not impeach him and remove him from office. the problem with this is that when you allow people to ignore the law for their own idea of morality, you have no grounds to challenge the next person, whose morality may be different.
we are seeing this now. obama is ignoring congress and the constitution and doing it on the grounds that his programs are the right thing for the country. it is no accident that he often references lincon in his speeches. he is drawing a subconscious moral equivalency between what he is doing and what lincoln did.
