We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I suspect the 'truth' or falsity of the claims that Obama was born in Kenya won't be known with any clarity for many years. His political machine has spent millions of dollars crafting an image of Mr. Obama which defies reality. It is suggestive, however, that the Machine has also spent untold millions to keep from public knowledge his school and college grades, from high school in Hawaii, to Occidental College here on the mainland, to Harvard, to Columbia University. Very odd indeed. Maybe those records will also come to light after Mr. Obama has left the White House and finished battering our democratic Republic to its metaphorical knees.
It’s not so much a birther reveal, but an indicator of mindset. Barry’s “home country” is Kenya. Not necessarily where he was born, just where he feels a rooted affinity. Not the U.S., not Indonesia, but Kenya.
If the U.S. is not his traditional, spiritual and psychological home, how can he be trusted to abide by the oath he swore? Anything that happens in the U.S.A. doesn’t really affect him…it’s just where he lives, nothing too important.
I'm with D on this one. Leave the tawdry, frivolous, meaningless exposes to Hot Air and their ilk. My family hasn't been back to Ireland in 200 years, but I could easily refer to Ireland as my "home country" to, you know, a bunch of Irishmen I was trying to win over. I mean, sheesh.
