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.

"BOWERS: I thought it was the most ridiculous debate I had ever seen. Because all of us were born in Hawaii at that time, we have the same birth certificates… If you happen to have kept the original one, which is a very thin extremely blackened out piece of paper with, you know, it’s very fragile, and 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. So, we all felt that that was an extremely useless debate and wish that American hadn’t gone there. "

Sounds like something you'd read off a teleprompter.

Bernice has nothing but gushing praise for Obama’s purported brilliance and greatness. I didn’t realize she worked in the “media.”

There seems to be a very repetitive theme throughout this piece -- he was normal. One of the guys. He was nice. Just like his friends. Very normal. Like everybody else. Good crowd. Regular people.

Apparently, there was no hint at the time that he was the Antichrist.

I do not think he is a nice guy. I think he is a pompous ass, who feels I owe him a living. I hate people like that. If he had to get along on his own, he would starve.

Why would she be running all around Hawaii looking at bc numbers if this is so silly?

And since she has felt the need to run all around Hawaii looking at bc numbers - why does she blame others for wanting to look into it?

Hmmm?

"If you happen to have kept the original one, which is a very thin extremely blackened out piece of paper with, you know, it’s very fragile"

Umm...no. You're describing a "photo copy" document, which was an early form of document copying. The result was a photo negative print presenting white text on black background. And, no it's not "the original one."

BOWERS: I think AP U.S. History was one of the strongest memories

I don't remember any AP classes during the mid 70s. Does anyone know when those started?

BOWERS: ...us who are his classmates actually knew him socially, but not the way his tight group does. And, they still do. And, that’s what makes us, just as Americans

Just as Americans? What the heck is that supposed to mean? Is Bowers admitting little Barry isn't American?

BOWERS: I think he really was one of those guys that, you know, so many people really, really liked as a person. And, I think that socially a lot of us were really not very adept at, you know, dating, or things like that.

Gee, Bowers, could you stumble over his sexual preferences any more?

BOWERS: Yes. I mean, especially at Punahou, where athlete scholars are really nurtured and highlighted. He was very proud of that and we were very proud of him for that.

Except even his coach said he stunk.

BOWERS: I especially think that the late 70s in Hawaii, drugs were available and I think whenever you have a private school, where kids might have more access, you’re gonna see more of it.

Geez, Bowers, quit stumbling over the truth.

Yada, yada, global voice, racial struggle, world-view, all of us were born in Hawaii, yada, yada, aloha.

He may be a nice guy face to face (or not, I wouldn’t know). He is definitely not a nice guy in his conduct and behavior. He is a malignant narcissist with a messed up world view. My guess is that he turns on the nice jovial thing when he needs to, but I have seen enough behavior to know he is something completely different as a person...the middle finger, the glare, the sharp attacks. These are not things nice people do.

I don’t think he’s a nice guy at all. A nice guy would help out his half brother (George) in his brother’s time of need instead of having Dinesh D’Souza do his family duty for him. George’s son needed about $1,000 for a medical procedure. George didn’t get the money from Uncle Barry (whose net worth is somewhere around $10 million), he got the money from Dinesh. A “nice” person would spread some of his own wealth around to members of his own family and be his own “brother’s keeper” as he has admonished the rest of us to do.

Obama is not a nice guy. Just look at his history in corrupt IL and who he was pals with. They specialized in shaking down hospitals..and they went to jail for it. He was part of the crime. Then he gets Michel a job..at a hospital no less.
A job that disappears when she does and has a pay scale that relates to his political position. NO..these are not “nice people”.

Being “nice” and wanting to be a tyrant are mutually exclusive. The “nice” part is just a con job. It’s acting. It’s not real.

That's the funny part. Barry was the only black guy on his high school varsity team, yet he was no better than 7th . . . not much good for more than a breather for the starters. But he pretends athleticism and is lauded for it in the press.

But who among popular politicians was the star point guard on their high school team and is mocked in the press?

AP American History first started in 1956. I can't tell you when it was first available in Hawaii though.

By now you should be able to see past Obama’s facade.

Obama is and always will be an angry black man trying desperately to fulfill the inane dream of his “father” who ditched him and his mother when he was just a boy.

There is nothing nice about Obama.

Grade school memories and i’m a few years older than Obama- Being dismissed from school when JFK was shot. Being in a few plays. A fight or 2. Buying my first book Pebble in the Sky by Asimov in second or 3rd grade. Thats it. I bet we had people come in to speak to us too.

I’m of the same era but never heard of it even in Dallas. You’d think DISD would have had it long before Hawaii. No college friends mentioned being in AP. First I ever heard about it was when our kids began Honors classes in middle school so they could get into AP in HS.

To Bowers:

Yes, it is ridiculous that obama and Hawaii, insisting obama was born in Hawaii, yet cannot produce a genuine hard-copy of the Hawaii bc; instead obama can only post an electronic image of the ‘birth cert’ that was proven to be fraudulent, which at best is an altered image of the allegedly hard copy his lawyer obtained from Hawaii.

It is ridiculous that obama cannot show the real bc (he alters it before showing it online!)

It is ridiculous that Hawaii cannot certify that the online image of the bc is identical to the hard copy they allegedly gave obama’s lawyer!

Anybody who has a bit of a brain can see that even if obama really has a bc from Hawaii, he would have/could have shown the real thing without altering it! He has something big to hide!

But out in the open is the fact that he is NOT a natural born citizen because he was born to a foreign father,i.e. born with dual citizenship at best, and as such he is not constitutionally eligible to be the president of USA, no matter where he was born.

I've only heard about it in the last 10 years. They certainly didn't have it in the HS I went to back around 1980. As far as I'm concerned, every class we took should have been an AP class compared with today's schools. Our grade scale was this:

Once upon a time being a serial post and runner without commenting earned one a zot.
Because it’s darn irritating to come into a thread and have the thread poster not speak at all.
Becoming suddenly mute or suffering sudden keyboard blackouts once one posts is not likely or plausible.

See post 42.
As I said, Once upon a time.
Because it was extremely irritating to go into a thread and have the thread originator play mute.
Especially when they have a pattern of never commenting on anything they post.

Goes back to ‘thread etiquette’ circa 2000 when I signed up to FR and everything was done via hand-HTML.
Posting and running is annoying and doesn’t engender discussion.
It merely says that you’ll post stuff and never say anything.
It’s also a form of forum trolling.
