Obama Classmate Dishes to Fox News (VIDEO)
Fox Nation ^ | Jan 4 | Staff

Posted on 01/04/2013 8:57:09 AM PST by JesseWatters

O’Reilly Factor correspondent Jesse Watters spoke to the President’s former classmate, Bernice Bowers, who attended the Punahou School in Honolulu with Barack Obama. She shared her memories of “Barry” as a student, her feelings about his friends and family, elaborated on the school’s unique curriculum and weighed in on the infamous birth certificate controversy.

“I think Barack Obama IS a nice guy. I think he’s a nice guy with the wrong political & economic viewpoint.”

Why does that remind me of the people who say of some guy named Adolph, “He was a great patron of the arts!”

She remembers his father coming in during 5th grade which was some 40 years ago?

What, like you wouldn't remember the father of young Prince Barry coming to talk?

I remember a lot from around 5th grade - getting sent to the office for daring to need to go to the restroom during lunch, reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond, fishnet kneehighs, the mean girl stabbing me with her pencil in Art class which left the lead mark for decades, attempting to play softball, judging the end of the year races, the cute blonde guy who had heart surgery, staring at the back of Max's buzz haircut, the high and mighty Lisa who cheated off me but claimed I cheated off her, the reflection off my locker of a hot pink dress mother made for my piano recital (obviously "The Pink Panther Theme"), my group's presentation on Norway, how hot it was in May even with the windows open, a creep who pushed me down on the walk home causing me to have a bad knee to this day, my best friend Crystal who had beautiful silvery hair, the teacher who griped because I read aloud too fast in Social Studies (iirc, it was India and the same teacher didn't know what a sloth was), directing David who liked me over to my friend Becky, messing up "America" in choir tryouts, dressing up as Minnie Mouse in the talent show, sitting on the steps, the science fair, Eisenhower's portrait hanging beside my desk, the teacher reading "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" to us, etc. BTW, I was in kindergarten right around nap time when JFK was assasinated and the nuns brought a tv into our room. As much as I remember, I can't remember a single assembly or speakers. Yawn, most kids fall asleep during those.

FWIW, Fox News has been strongly opposed to any discussion of the birther issue.

what was even funnier was that our classmates, we have twins in our class, they were born right before then, literally their numbers in that hospital were right before his. Their mother knew the doctor who delivered him.

Uh, huh. And why doesn't the interviewer ask her for the NAME of the doctor, or the hospital where theis supposedly took place? Maybe she wouldn't know or wouldn't remember. But wouldn't it be part of a talking head's job to at least ASK?

Remember that picture of his scrawny little ass at the beach? The press was ga-ga over his "pecs".

Oh, you mean the photo of enhanced pecs and, uh, nether region? The photoshopped light and dark skin and photoshopping that went so far as to change the color of his swim trunks from black to red (or was it red to black, whatever that purpose was).

I taught math at Oak Ridge High School (near ORNL in TN) from 1968-1974. There were AP classes: Calculus, English, History, various Sciences.

That woman was clearly coached to spill the propaganda. Fox was the perfect outlet to dump it to—and they gobbled it right up.

Some of us also know other people that attended HS with barry. He was a major drug dealer in HS. Did that come out in the interview? Of course not. Where are your responses to comments made to you?

She's a Hussein shill. She talks like he's still running for office.

“Everyone sees him as Hawaii’s son,” said Bernice Bowers, Obama’s high school classmate who also worked closely with him during the presidential campaign. Obama brings Hawaiian values — namely, respect for other cultures — to his governance, Bowers told the Banner. Because of this, he resonates with the people of Hawaii — he is “personifying local values.”

Eric Kusunoki, Obama’s high school homeroom teacher for four years, added that the president “gained a lot” growing up in Hawaii. Because “everyone is a minority” on the islands, Hawaiians have a broader worldview, are more inclusive, and understand how to cooperate, qualities that Kusunoki sees in the president. Obama also holds on to friends from his Hawaii days. Bowers explained that when the president visits, he spends time with his close friends from high school, instead of just rubbing shoulders with the powerful. “He has stayed very true to his close friends.”

He “still seemed like the same guy,” said Kusunoki, who spent time with Obama during his August and December 2008 visits. “He was always a good listener,” his teacher added, who had “very good people skills,” and a “good personality.”

He's the president, not a potential dinner date... that position

Agreed. He is in a position of state that requires right thinking and decision making regardless of personality.

He is "The Fox Mole", Dark. He is not going to comment, period. Not sure why.

You can read all about him on the net.

You're describing a "photo copy" document

Agree 100% except we used to call these "photostat(s)". The process used a very large, fixed focus (finite conjugate ratio lens) camera with a xenon arc light on each side of the camera, illuminating the document to be copied. The document was held on a vacuum frame, which is a box with perforations that uses a blower to produce a slight vacuum to hold the document flat with no cover glass to cause reflections. The camera and document holder were usually large enough to produce copies of 'C' sized (17" x 22") documents.

Lastly the exposure is made directly on to photographic print paper with no intermediary film negative. That is why the copy has a black background with white printing. Since the paper copy needed to be wet processed to develop and fix the image the camera was permanently set up in a "dark room".

Regards,
GtG

No, I’m not in the wrong place. I’m in the part of FR where you can be an ardent libertarian and Constitutional conservative Christian. I hate statism and love freedom, I hate the perverted things people do (we all have issues BTW) but don’t hate people. I don’t have to hate people to hate the things people do. Maybe you don’t belong in that part of FR.

You don’t have to hate a person to hate what he does. Some people here seem to have a problem with that concept.

A man is defined by his actions, so in hating the actions you hate the man.

I think Barack Obama IS a nice guy. I think he’s a nice guy with the wrong political & economic viewpoint.

0bama is not a "nice" guy. He is a malignant narcissist and arrogant Stalinist thug whose entire purpose in life is to destroy this country. A "nice" guy would not watch four Americans die on live tv and order the military to stand down.

What makes this one MORE irritating, is that he was supposedly the one that interviewed the ding-bat.... There are many questions we want to ask about why it was so ‘softball’...

I completely agree. Y'all think it might something contractual? I have no idea but it is damn sure frustrating. I think I'd much rather he just stop posting than not conversing. Matter of fact, I know that I would.

This BC issue just gets curiouser and curiouser. Why would Fox News send out a reporter now to dig up a woman who said just about the same stuff in an interview posted in 2010?

And what about his headline?
http://www.newshounds.us/fox_nation_s_jesse_watters_is_an_obama_donor_12112012

Strange.

Orly must be keeping it in the news so that some are worried about it.

“By their fruits you shall know them” Obama claims to be a christian, but the proof is in his actions.
Is he?
No, emphatically not.
Also, it does say that we ARE to judge those within the church, and since obama claims to be a christian we can make a judgement on him and his actions.

Note the little ‘c’ indicating yet another fake “christian”.
