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.

This is so mindbogglingly bogus I can't believe anyone would have the balls to post it (let alone write it).

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."

Agreed. I grew up military and can point out several issues without trying.

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.
