EnderWiggins I thank you for your service in the United States military. But your convoluted claim that no one knows whether Obama could pass a background check is completely laughable. I also enjoyed your “rectal defilade” remark! Anyone who had associated with even a tenth of the radical America Haters and criminals that Obama has wouldn't have a chance of getting even any type of security clearance. He also admitted to using hard drugs while he was in college. I am guessing you didn't fess up to that in your interviews. Then there is the issue of his character... the man is a habitual liar to the point that he embarrasses himself on an almost daily basis.
I guess you didn't catch his talk with the space shuttle crew the other day. “My commitment to NASA is unwavering,” Obama said. He emphasized “how proud we are of you ... and how committed we are to continuing human space exploration in the future.” He just canceled NASA’s primary space exploration project. Reality and what comes out of the man's mouth are almost polar opposites every time he speaks. Now admittedly he normally only is reading what is being displayed on his teleprompter, but still that just shows that he has surrounded himself with liars. He uses the same type of muddled language that you do so that when someone catches him in a lie he is able to claim that what people think they heard coming out of his mouth is different than what he actually said.

(Check your facts before making ignorant statements.)
I will not argue with you on issues in which we are violent agreement, nor will I argue on issues that I admittedly know nothing about. I would suggest you hold to those same behaviors, but hey, that is entirely up to you. But I assure you that I know wherefore I speak, and I have personally gone through he process of my own background check and participated in those of several other people, and I know wherefore I speak.
The process of a security investigation is not based on Internet rumors, political rhetoric, or the decibel level at which the input is offered. It is performed by professionals who are quite adept at telling the difference between genuine issues and vacuous speculation, and as a result no one can ever predict from the outside looking in what clearances will or will not get granted.
I know that I myself doubted my own ability to get a clearance since I had a long family history of participation in organized crime. Yes, I am Sicilian and the son of a Mafia princess.
History shows that I not only received a clearance, but I was given custodial responsibility for nuclear weapons at the age of 21.
When all was said done, it did not matter who my grandfather was, or my uncles were, or who I was friends with, or where I was born, or what drugs I had ever used, or what previous jobs I had held.
It mattered only that their investigation determined I was deserving of the clearance.
I repeat... anybody who pretends they know ahead of time how a security clearance background check will go are demonstrating by that certainty that they have no idea what they are talking about.
