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.
After all, we're enlightened and sophisticated internationalists, and it's about time for a Kenyan, right? An insider Chicago Machine pol community activist left-wing Kenyan with special real estate deals from now-indicted Rezko, of course. The kind of Kenyan that wants Crony Capitalism for himself, and Socialism for me. Same as all the limo Dems like Kennedy, who keeps his investments offshore unlike us regular folks who invest normally.
Now back to my gardens if I can walk at all after my grueling tennis match in which I served far too many serves, on the most beautiful day of the year. We did win. We do not believe in losing, even if we have to win ugly with backspin drop shots and nasty angles.
We could have easily beaten Mr. and Mrs. Obama with our tricksy ball control and our deep topspin slammers that bounce like crazy fiends.
He's lucky he didn't get his brother's name. Obongo Obama wouldn't get very far. The MSM will bury this just like they did with the Edwards affair. Hopefully Edwards will just go away but politicians are nothing if not shameless so he'll probably pop up again.
i call it the "ugly but effective shot" never had a problem with it as long as I was in the win column and i use it in golf. glad you had to serve a lot because it is such a good feeling to win a long serve game. wish i could still play tennis but such is life. obama what a character and we may be calling him Mr. President very soon if McCain does not hire a real campaign manager!!
Obama's half-sister Auma is quite pretty, I think.
The burning issue with some people (so I'm learning) is not whether Obama has dual citizenship but whether he is a "natural-born American", which is the prerequisite for becoming President. As was explained to me, the issue arises because only one of Obama's parents, his mother, was an American citizen when he was born, but she was not old enough at the time of his birth to qualify him as a natural-born citizen, according to a reading of US law that was in effect at the time. Since I'm not a lawyer, I am in no position to judge the validity of the arguments that were presented to me.

That only applies if the child is born outside of the US.
Sean ... if by "he" you mean McCain, military base properties, like embassies in foreign countries, are considered to be American soil. On top of which, he was born to a father who was a native American citizen and who was serving in our military at the time, and a mother, who was also native-born American, who bore her child on "American soil" as defined above. His parents were also legally married, and I understand that Obama's father had been married in Africa and not legally divorced when he supposedly married Obama's mother, but that's another problem which the lawyers can deal with.
