Ive said before that one of the great strengths of the United States is - although as I mentioned, we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation; we consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values." - Barack Obama
Its rough being president of Country where most of the people are so fond of their guns and bibles, have quaint ideas about private enterprize, freedom, democracy, republican consitutional government, and, on top of it, are still about 80% Christian.
Its especially rough when you are a Marxist Muslim.
Maybe he should abdicate.
The police were sent to make sure black granny kept her mouth shut on the birth but then celebrity and all it’s tapping hit and no one wants that to go away.
Sarah refers to him as a boy since she first knew him as a baby. That’s a dead giveaway. Of course, he claims he first went to Kenya in ‘86.
Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.
Ryans campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans.
“Its clear to me that a vigorous debate on the issues most likely could not take place if I remain in the race,” Ryan, 44, said in a statement. “What would take place, rather, is a brutal, scorched-earth campaign the kind of campaign that has turned off so many voters, the kind of politics I refuse to play.”
Although Ryan disputed the allegations, saying he and his wife went to one avant-garde club in Paris and left because they felt uncomfortable, lashed out at the media and said it was “truly outrageous” that the Chicago Tribune got a judge to unseal the records.
The Republican choice will become an instant underdog in the campaign for the seat of retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald, since Obama held a wide lead even before the scandal broke.
“I feel for him actually,” Obama told a Chicago TV station. “What hes gone through over the last three days I think is something you wouldnt wish on anybody.”
The Republican state committee must now choose a replacement for Ryan, who had won in the primaries against seven contenders. Its task is complicated by the fact that Obama holds a comfortable lead in the polls and is widely regarded as a rising Democratic star.
The chairwoman of the Illinois Republican Party, Judy Topinka, said at a news conference, after Ryan withdrew, that Republicans would probably take several weeks to settle on a new candidate.
“Obviously, this is a bad week for our party and our state,” she said.
As recently as Thursday, spokesmen for the Ryan campaign still insisted that Ryan would remain in the race. Ryan had defended himself saying, “Theres no breaking of any laws. Theres no breaking of any marriage laws. Theres no breaking of the Ten Commandments anywhere.”
I find it curious that unlike his white grandmother this ever smiling, dimpled African granny is never mentioned by the current resident... Nor does he ever speak of the aunt that taxpayers support who is living illegally in Boston, or NY or wherever. Ditto for the brother living in poverty in a shack somewhere on the Dark Continent. Moreover, they aren’t ever invited to jet around the world on extended luxury vacations with the resident. Nope, not part of his posse. It is puzzling since he does haul around his half sister, her husband and family plus a whole passel of his in-laws. Curious... or maybe not.
