    Early Obama critics will remember the particularly bizarre case of Percy Sutton, a leading African-American Civil Rights leader and entrepreneur who, while being interviewed on a New York area news program, dropped something of a bomb. Specifically, Sutton claimed that then-candidate Obama had earned his admission to Harvard thanks to the intervention of a mysterious lawyer named Khalid al-Mansour, who Sutton fingered as working for one of the wealthiest men on earth. According to Sutton, Mansour had asked him to write a letter of recommendation for Obama, and was in the process of “raising money” for Obama, though what this money could be for, he didn’t specify.

    But now, thanks to some unexpected information, the story is back in the news, and this time, Mansour’s disavowals may be less easy to take. Reporter Frank Miele of Montana’s Daily InterLake newspaper unearthed the following 1979-era newspaper column by Jarrett discussing a plan by several influential African-American businessmen with ties to the Arab world to funnel their cash toward promising young African-American students. Among those businessmen was Mansour himself.


    The hitch? Mansour himself is quoted in the article. “The first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in December,” he is quoted as saying.

    Says something about Ohio in my book. I used this analogy before. It's like when a person burns their hand on the stovetop so what do they do? Put it back on the fire and hope somehow that will fix it? Makes no sense to go with policies that either aren't working or barely working.

    What is Obama's iq? I'd think about 110-112? Pretty good considering.

    No. I'll use MSNBC, CNN, Huffington Post, NYT, LA Times, ABC, CBS, and NBC....that way I'll really contribute. STFU, idiot. Debunk what he says, not who he is or a website. You sound like Lahkota and you don't get much more ignorant than that.

    Nah, actually I think I'm just going to keep laughing at you and your wingnuttiness, especially since you've taken to spamming the board with all kinds of different threads. You've either gotten super desperate or are getting paid for it. Either way, it's a hoot.


    :D
