It isn't. Obama is a Christian. Let's keep our eyes focused on where Obama is actually dangerous -- his liberal politics -- and not on the lies.

"The apartment was small, with slanting floors and irregular heat and a buzzer downstairs that didn't work, so that visitors had to call ahead from a pay phone at the corner gas station, where a black Doberman the size of a wolf paced through the night in vigilant patrol, its jaws clamped around an empty beer bottle."

Obama is obviously as good at fiction as he professes to be at poetry.

I belive almost all of the excerpts from the book that are in this article are completely bogus. Not the article but the book itself. Let's see he moved from LA to NY and only then did he decide to become serious about studying... well then how did young Obama get acceppted into Columbia then?

He had a rich white girlfriend whom he pushed away? Why, because she was white? Why then was she his girlfriend and hey if his mother is white why does he seems to have a problem with white women? Answer, I doubt that he does.

He slept on the street on the first night in NY becasue his landlord was AWOL? What does that mean exactly?

The 80's in NY were such a shocking dichotomy to his senses becasue of the disparity between white and black incomes? Did he end up in a time warp and thing he was thrust into the 50's or 60's? The 80's weren't that different then today except the liberal Mayors at the time allowed homeless persons to wander the streets harrassing everyone so maybe he just noticed it more!

I mean c'mon this whole things is so fake, phoney and straight out of the left's view of the mean cruel world aligned againts the struggling black man that just so sterotypical pap to possibly be true.

He went to socialist conferences at Cooper Union and African cultural fairs in Brooklyn and started lecturing his relatives until they worried he'd become "one of those freaks you see on the streets around here."

Instead, he ended up just another oily scumbag in Chicago politics.

Obama is a Christian.

No he's not - - the oily scumbag just plays one on TV.

I think he's probably a religious man.

What does this mean, and what does it have to do with anything? It is not a qualification, or a disqualifier, IMO.

First landlord was AWOL

My interpretation of that statement was that the landlord was merely not there when Obama showed up to occupy his apartment.

He claims one of his roommates while in New York was an undocumented Pakistani immigrant named Sadiq, although he warns some of the people in the book are "composites."

Composites, lies, whatever. If this doesn't set off veracity alarm bells...

Beckwith, thanks for providing us with this information on Obama. I appreciate you taking the time to research this. Sadly, some people, and yes even here on this forum, will look at this information as an attempt to "destroy someone". Keep up the good work, and keep us informed!

Soon we will find out that he lived deep in Hartlem, and worked for the Rev. Al. What a shameless huckster he is.

Nominate him! He will make George McGovern look like a real vote getter.

What is interesting about Obama is that in over four decades he has stayed in exclusively left wing hothouses, with no exposure to the private sector, or American cultural mainstream.

Columbia University

Community activist, Left-Wing Chicago politician
University of Chicago Law School faculty

Have no fear,hillary will take care of that.

Unless she makes him her veep. It's not like he'd pose a threat.
