Barack Obama Sighting, Hawaii 1980
Gathering of Eagles ^ | Nov 17, 2009 | GOE NY

Posted on 11/30/2009 7:43:24 PM PST by syc1959

A friend of mine sent me this story of his time in the Marine Corps. Read through to the end, it’s a shocker.

What strikes me most is what he said as to where he grew up: Indonesia. He told me he wanted to be President of the US someday. I remember lightly smiling and commenting that maybe by the time he gets to be 40 or so, America will be ready for a Black man to be President and I wished him luck. We spoke of the racial tensions I saw at home while growing up and I asked him if he ever saw that overseas or since he returned back to Hawaii. I don’t remember his answer, but we spoke more of his time overseas and his thoughts on life and philosophy of government. He made some strange comments to me, it was obvious he never set foot for any time in the continental United States and I told him he better realize that he is making judgments about the United States when he himself never actually lived there. I told him, “Hawaii aint the United States!”

He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, “I was born there”. I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay.

Here's a picture of the "author". Who would like to start by pointing out... oh, never mind. Anyone who believes this pudknocker has ever worn a uniform in any capacity other than car-park attendant or as a Halloween costume just won't get it.

I don’t believe this is authentic. It seems over written to prove the point about Obama’s citizenship - sure has alot of focus on exactly where he was said to be born, just how out of touch he is with US culture, that he wanted to be president etc. All the controversy distilled into a few sentences - and written with a casual style - and turning up -now.

Ditto. Those attempting to cover their tracks always seem to forget some minor detail that does them in. This case will be no exception. Hopefully before his term is up or he is up for re-election. Someone somewhere has "something."

It starts off with a "A friend of mine sent me this story of his time in the Marine Corps. Read through to the end, it’s a shocker."

A faux email rumor making it to blogs. I see the blogger left off the part about emailing it to 10 friends in 10 minutes and you will have good luck.

Because the guy telling the story only wrote it down because he is going to college for vocational rehab due to a spinal injury and had to take a lit and comp course for his new degree, his instructor is a conservative and he told her the story, and she wanted him to write it as a short story.

I got hurt several years ago

had 2 spinal surgeries, qualified for vocational rehab

going to college full time for electrical engineering

had to take a lit and comp class, seems the english and comp courses I took from 88 to 93 weren’t good enough, so...

Told this story to my professor, she asked for it in short story form

I dont doubt people are doubting it, I never went very public with it, I just wasn’t sure, I honestly dont remember the guys name and knowing it was a 30 year old memory, I just didn’t want to speak it

But, this is for a college short story, still in progress

but the facts are true, especially this part

He used to host a radio show in the drive-time afternoon on KFYI with Austin Hill (who still lives here, but hosts a show in DC and writes for various sites). They were funny together and tried to syndicate their show. I guess they bombed. Heck, I thought they were funny on KFYI and if I’m not mistaken Tom had his dad on once or twice. I think that G. Gordon has a winter house here. (Phx)

I just googled him, it said he (Tom Liddy) was born in 62, that cant be the guy, I was born earlier than that and this guy was older

Might be James Liddy?

You would be correct on that. He had brothers. Tom was in the service also I believe. But if there are doubters to your story, I’m sure Tom would gladly forward you to his brother. You’re right about the age. I thought Tom was a year older making him Obama’s age which would be too young to be a Lt. and a SEAL. Didn’t even think of that. That’s why I’m not a Private EYE.

I found James Liddy on the web and sent him an e-mail to see if that is the right Liddy

I’ve lived my whole life in Hawaii (I graduated from the same school Obama did, but a few years earlier; however, I’m no Obama fan).

That landscape photo (obviously a montage) is taken from the Pali Lookout, looking out over Kaneohe. You can see my church directly below the lookout, it’s the large structure in the center of the photo (First Presbyterian). It used to be a golf course clubhouse before we bought and moved into it about 4 years ago (you can see the golf course behind and to the sides of it).

See: http://www.fpchawaii.org/

Only problem is that building and golf course didn’t exist in 1980, when you said you were in Hawaii. It was built in the late Eighties, early Nineties, somewhere thereabouts.*

So if you claim you took that photo when you were in Hawaii in 1980, which seems to be implied by including it with others which supposedly confirm your being there at that time, I call “fake.”

I will agree that the out of focus one could have been taken around 1980, given the shortness of the shorts men were wearing (that was the style—compare Magnum P.I.’s swimsuits). From the foliage, I would guess that photo was taken either at Bellows Air Force Station Beach or Waimanalo Beach Park, although it might have been at Malaekahana.

*This site says it was built in 1991 (Koolau Golf Course). http://www.bestplaceshawaii.com/tips/10_best/golf_courses.html
