    Nearly four years after Barack Obama was elected to the most powerful office in the most powerful country in the world, the question remains: Who is he?

    He seemed to come out of nowhere. He had served seven years in the Illinois Senate, and less than four years in the U.S. Senate — a meager political resume, augmented by a stirring speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

    His was an exotic story, at least by the standards of the 42 white men who preceded him in office. Son of a black African and white Kansan, born in Hawaii, raised there and in Indonesia, he was something new, and America seemed ready for him. He won almost 9.5 million votes more than John McCain.

    And yet, "there was the feeling that we knew less than we needed to know" about our new president, says Janny Scott, author of "A Singular Woman," a biography of Stanley Ann Dunham, Obama's mother. "He didn't fit a comfortable template."

    A couple of things we know about him. He graduated from Harvard law school magna cum laude and inheirited this:

    Two big wars raging, dozens of young Americans dying each day 10,000 miles from their homes, the stock market tanked, people losing their homes by the 100,000, half a trillion dollar interest on the Reagan/Bushes debt due and payable, GM and Chrysler ready to go bankrupt and take a look at the jobs being lost:

    Somewhat ironic. I thought that when I read the headline. Now? This is what passes for the "media" these days.

    After 4 years in the White House, we know all we need to know about him now, don't we?

    The question is: What do we know about Mitt Romney? He know his resume', but what do we REALLY know? His position on the issues changes depending upon who he's talking to and he's never adequately explained just WHY he wants to be President.

    YEA WE DO- That he's a DAMN LIAR who doesn't give a damn about dying Americans, just covering his sorry ass.. Guess you haven't seen the headlines this morning or don't care to?? I have a thread started on it.. YOUR MESSIAH WAS BUSTED- Emails were leaked showing HE KNEW, HE FREAKING KNEW within 2 hours of the Bengazi attack that it was AL-QAEDA.. What did he do?? He went back to sleep after that 3am call and let Americans die.
