    Before we start on our journey to understand Obama. Let us review what we do know about him.

    He was born in Hawaii.
    He was raised in Indonesia by his step father living under and assumed name, Barry Soetoro.
    He was educated in a Muslim school through his formative years.
    His mentor was Frank Davis.
    His political campaign was started in the house of Bill Ayers. (which he lied about knowing)
    For 17 years he let the lie stand that he was born in Kenya. (a claim his grandmother said was true).
    He benefited by a land deal with a convicted felon.

    So that is true let us learn more.

    A childhood of privilege, not hardship

    Chapter I: A childhood of privilege, not hardship | WashingtonExaminer.com

    First lady Michelle Obama told the Democratic National Convention that "Barack and I were both raised by families who didn't have much in the way of money or material possessions."

    It is a claim the president has repeated in his books, on the speech-making circuit and in countless media interviews. By his account, he grew up in a broken home with a single mom, struggled for years as a child in an impoverished Third World country and then was raised by his grandparents in difficult circumstances.

    The facts aren't nearly so clear-cut.

    I already started a thread back during the convention about Michelle dissembling about Barack's family just scraping by. :lmao:

    I'm always up for laughing about the legend they've tried to build.

    Really what is it about Obama that makes him think that being black is superior to being white? After all he is half of each yet ignores his white side.

    Mitt fainted once at the sight of a used VW, he'd have a stroke if he saw a vehicle with rust on the grounds of ANY of his Estates. He thinks the word "discount" is "Viscount" misspelled.

    And why did the smart guy buy shoes which were too small? That poor poor lad trying to get by on the penurious wages from his summer associate position at one of the largest law firms in the nation. Breaks your heart. *sniffle*

    Romney once was forced to go to an AIRPORT, and fly on a COMMERCIAL aircraft. He was traumatized for months.
