Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

The allegations that horrified fellow Republicans and caused his once-promising candidacy to implode in four short days have given Obama a clear lead as Republicans struggled to fetch an alternative.

Ryan’s campaign began to crumble on Monday following the release of embarrassing records from his divorce. In the records, his ex-wife, Boston Public actress Jeri Ryan, said her former husband took her to kinky sex clubs in Paris, New York and New Orleans. ...

Nope, this was the Obama campaign dirty tricks team. Oops! Confidential divorce records were "leaked". Don't look there! Look, kinky clubs!

Well there were lots of "conservatives" and FReepers from Illinois that decided it would be better to vote for the marxist community organizer because he was their marxist community organizer and not some kook conservative "carpetbagger" OR ANYONE ELSE.

So, seven-of-nine doesn't get all the credit.

Chrissy Matthews actually asked a guest before the nomination if the fact that Obama was born in Kenya would effect his chances.

Before Obama was nominated, he was ubiquitous referred to as ‘Kenyan’ all over the world.

Even MONTH referred to Kenya as his homeland.

But now, searching on the internet, I can’t find any of the quotes.

Scrubbed

They were not exactly leaked, The Chicago Tribune had the records released under a FOIA, both Jack and Jeri Ryan objected to the release of the records.

Actually we have Blair Hull’s ex-wife to blame. Or Blair himself, depending on who you believe. Who is Blair Hull. He’s the multi-millionaire who spent 28 million bucks of his own money to run in the Illinois Democratic primary in 2004. He was enjoying a substantial lead over the little known Barack Obama and other candidates until 3 weeks before the election. It was then learned his ex-wife claimed he physically and mentally abused her. His numbers plummeted and Obama won. The rest is history

I seem to recall that there was an interview done by Robert Novak where the subject of The Kenyan’s eligibility was discussed.

The gist of it was that his Kenyan birth was not an obstacle because he was running for the senate - not the presidency.

Unfortunately, they were covering it up and if John McCain, the traitor, brought it up they were prepared to use his even though he is legit.

Obama was all but guaranteed the POTUS. They had it all planned out. That’s why I say he was selected; not elected.

He is a phony and a traitor.

John McCain was selected to run too simply because of his birth.

While I have doubts about Obama’s birthplace (mainly because he refuses to order the release of the long form), this article is pretty much meaningless.

Finding a handful of references to him being born in Kenya out of the thousands and thousands of articles stating he was born in Hawaii doesn’t prove anything, other than that newspapers make mistakes.

I seriously doubt the Sunday Standard had any inside information that the rest of the media did not have. The odds are about 99.99% that they simply made a mistake (even if that “mistake” caused them to inadvertantly publish a truth that nobody knew was true).

Of course, it is possible that Obama was born in Kenya, but if the Sunday Standard “got it right” it was because they “got it wrong” when attempting to report the official and commonly reported details of Obama’s birthplace.

I’m sure if we look hard enough we could find articles stating that George W. Bush was born in Texas or that Sarah Palin was born in Alaska.

“I seriously doubt the Sunday Standard had any inside information that the rest of the media did not have.
Go back and read the link. it is an AP story

not that ap couldn’t gget it wrong but as a world wide news org they do have some credibility.
When you add it to the NPR article quoting their staff member in kenya also saying 0dumbo was kenyan born
You certainly can understand why people want to see the original BC from Hawaii

Remember these articles were writtne back in 2004 when it would have meant little for someone born in kenya to run for the Senate

something is amiss. Frankly I dont think a president should be allowed to keep background records off limits to the public.

In this electronic age, it takes great effort to erase your foot print. Why all the effort?

At each of the two major steps forward in Obama’s political career — becoming an Illinois state senator and a United States senator — he has advanced not by winning a vote against a tough opponent, but by default, after those tough opponents were forced off the ballot. Let’s skip through his political career chronologically...

I doubt Obama has those web links scrubbed. They probably either expired or were taken down when the errors were discovered.

I do agree he should release the long form, not to mention all his college transcripts. Unless he is intentionally keeping the controversy alive, as a distraction, I can think of no reason he would not release these documents, if doing so would prove his US birth and his academic excellence.

Here’s a dozen nespaper reports — all describing Obama as Kenyan. Even National Public Radio described Barack Obama as “Kenyan-born.”

Bunch of Kenyan politicos, also.

None of these sources could be remotely described as “Birthers.”

Forget about the Kenya thing, Mccain refused even to say his middle name. What a apologetic weenie he was.

McCain threw a angry tantrum fit in Cincinnati because Bill Cunningham said Barrack ‘Hussein’ Obama.

McCain went crazy and dressed Bill down for it at a rally Bill was hosting for McCain.

McCain was never a serious candidate. He seemed more interested in kissing Obama’s butt than contending with him.

I call BS on this. Prove it!

Why would you stick up for Obama when you don't know where he was born? Even if he was born in HI, it doesn't make him eligible to be President.

Isn’t that something. The democrat party media was all atwitter about a KENYAN born senator, but later when he was running for president, he was born in Hawaii.
At some point the msm was lying about obama.
In either case, the demonrat party and their media escorted a guy into the White House with all his historical records concealed. Now why would they do that?
