"I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived in Indonesia for a few years, and my mother didnt have the money to send me where all ***the American kids*** went to school. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday at 4:30 in the morning."
I was under the impression that his stepfather was fairly well-to-do.
I doubt he wrote the speech himself. Presidents rarely do.
at 4:30 in the morning...
Not buying it!
I was mainly pointing out “the American kids”. It just seems like an odd thing to say. Not “the other American kids”...
The chip is against his mother.
hmmm, Does this mean Obama was not an American kid?
Not “the other American kids” but “the American kids.”
Interesting. Reminds me of the time George Stephanie Opolis had to correct him when he said “my Muslim religion.”
He forgot the part where he was enrolled as a muslim and its mandatory koran classes AND his attending friday prayers.
What was his name?
I don't recall reading much about him.
So did the whore marry him for his money?
BTW why was Obama’s mother declared unfit?
Any details on that? His WHITE grandparents wound up raising him in Hawaii ... where he then used his SKIN COLOR to jump ahead of those “American kids”, that he loathed - and at taxpayer expense!
Maybe his speech writer also believes he wasn’t an “American kid”. No doubt that will be corrected by later this afternoon. Reminds me a bit of his “my Muslim faith” comment.
The radio news reported that the White House nixed the supplemental materials (Make a poster of your favorite Obama quote!)
True? No classroom materials at all? Just the wordy speech?
Sounds to me like he’s applying fertilizer to future taxpayers.
You're just now noticing this? He doesn't like anything America stands for either.
I believe he worked for an oil company.
“I did some things Im not proud of, “
Like lying about his Constitutional eligibility to be President.

I thought he went to a Catholic school when he lived in Indonesia?
4:30 in the morning? Luxury!
Monty Python 4 Yorkshiremen
Eric Idle: Very fussable, isn’t it? Very fussable.
All: Right, all right.
Graham Chapman: Good glass of Chteau de Chasselas, ain’t just that, sire?
Terry Jones: Oh, you’re right there, Obadiah.
Graham Chapman: Right.
Eric Idle: Who would have thought, thirty years ago, we’d all be sitting here drinking Chateau de Chaselet, eh?
All: Aye, aye.
Michael Palin: Them days we were glad to have the price of a cup of tea.
Graham Chapman: Right! A cup of cold tea!
Michael Palin: Right!
Eric Idle: Without milk or sugar!
Terry Jones: Or tea!
Michael Palin: In a cracked cup and all.
Eric Idle: Oh, we never used to have a cup! We used to have to drink out of a rolled-up newspaper!
Graham Chapman: The best we could manage was to suck on a piece of damp cloth.
Terry Jones: But you know, we were happy in those days, although we were poor.
Michael Palin: Because we were poor!
Terry Jones: Right!
Michael Palin: My old dad used to say to me: “Money doesn’t bring you happiness, son!”
Eric Idle: He was right!
Michael Palin: Right!
Eric Idle: I was happier then and I had nothing! We used to live in this tiny old tumbled-down house with great big holes in
Graham Chapman: House! You were lucky to live in a house! We used to live in one room, all twentysix of us, no furniture,
half the floor was missing, we were all huddled together in one corner for fear of falling.
Terry Jones: You were lucky to have a room! We used to have to live in the corridor!
Michael Palin: Oh, we used to dream of living in a corridor! Would have been a palace to us! We used to live in an old
watertank on a rubbish tip. We’d all woke up every morning by having a load of rotten fish dumped all over us! House, huh!
Eric Idle: Well, when I say a house, it was just a hole in the ground, covered by a sheet of tarpaulin, but it was a house to us!
Graham Chapman: We were evicted from our hole in the ground. We had to go and live in a lake!
Terry Jones: You were lucky to have a lake! There were 150 of us living in a shoebox in the middle of the road!
Michael Palin: A cardboard box?
Terry Jones: Aye!
Michael Palin: You were lucky! We lived for three months in a rolled-up newspaper in a septic tank! We used to have to go
up every morning, at six o’clock and clean the newspaper, go to work down the mill, fourteen hours a day, week in, week out,
for six pence a week, and when we got home, our dad would slash us to sleep with his belt!
Graham Chapman: Luxury! We used to have to get up out of the lake at three o’clock in the morning, clean the lake, eat a
handful of hot grubble, work twenty hours a day at mill, for two pence a month, come home, and dad would beat us around
the head and neck with a broken bottle, if we were lucky!
Terry Jones: Well, of course, we had it tough! We used to have to get up out of the shoebox in the middle of the night, and
lick the road clean with our tongues! We had to eat half a handful of freezing cold grubble, work twenty-four hours a day at
mill for four pence every six years, and when we got home, our dad would slice us in two with a breadknife!
Eric Idle: Right! I had to get up in the morning, at ten o’clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold
poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill and pay millowner for permission to come to work, and when we got home,
our dad would kill us and dance about on our graves, singing Hallelujah!
Michael Palin: Aah. Are you trying to tell the young people of today that, and they won’t believe you!
All: No, no they won’t!
His mother’s family was loaded.
Does this means OdumbO is going to release his grades to prove the extra work pays off?
And he didn't.
This was just his way of pretending he was born in America.
Not the other American kids...
Ah! Very astute observation.
By not saying “the other American kids” he implies that he did not feel to part of the group of people called “Americans”!
Surely you are aware of his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro?
If I'm not mistaken, while his purported father, Barack Obama Sr., was indeed a loser, his stepfather, Soetero(sp?), was fairly well off.
all the American kids went to public school, which is open to anyone, dumbo. So you got home schooled?, then you have the advantage to public school, quit whinning.
That’s bull...one of his classmates had a parent or a grandparent that gave the President a car and he had one , too. I think it was a Cadillac but I can’t remember the whole story. The kid says those were the only two in the country.
Lolo was a military officer studying in Hawaii. The CIA was very active in the politics of Indonesia around that time.
They wanted Sukarno out and concocted a fake honey trap video. I am pretty sure Lolo knew Ann’s dad.
By the way, wasn’t Frank Marshall Davis married to a white women. It amazes me that so many of these radicals who hate whites are married to one.
In time for morning prayers???
Exactly. He is not including himself in this group.
I think you are right in taking “the American kids” line as depicting Americans as uncaring elitist throughout the world who would not let Barry in.
There is something so very wrong with this guy.
Actually he went to both, a private and the equivalent of a public.
It is the private school that has his registration form showing he was muslim and named barry soetoro
I expected a shorter speech with less personal stories in it.
Also he addresse kingergarten kids with his little manifesto????
Thumbs way down. He just can’t help it. It’s his nature, eveything is about him. He wants kids to imprint on him.
It gives them a chance to humiliate the "inferior" white wife every day, as well as being an in-your-face to Whitey.
It really makes me wonder about the woman's self esteem.
Not buying it!
Typical racist mindset. What our dear leader could have meant was that it was approaching 4:30 in the morning in a time-zone; somewhere. dear leader does not lie, depending on what the meaning of the word is--is. [/sarcasm]
Okay ... I'll accept that for the moment.
Then WHY didn't Obama go to the “American” school?
WHY a Madras school in Indonesia?
WHY the harboring of dislike for the “American” school?
And also WHY the pity me silly of how his “single” mom struggled?
It doesn't add up no matter how you slice and dice it.
“Surely you are aware of his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro?”
No. I’m not familiar with that one.
Have a link or want to educate me on him?
“His mothers family was loaded.”
So what happened?
Why the “struggle” stuff?
Why the chip on the should attitude about not attending the “American” school if he was an AMERICAN and his “mother’s” family was “loaded”?
No, I’m just pointing out that he is blind with hostility towards America. This was evident during his campaigning. He HATES America. He HATES whites. He is a COMMUNIST. He wants to spread AMERICA’S wealth around to other countries and a few crumbs to blacks and Hispanics. He HATES CAPITALISM. He HATES INDIVIDUALITY. He is all for COMMUNITY where all work and share and share alike. Merit has nothing to do with it.
He’s worse than Clinton and I though he was screwed up.
Why do you think we called him “Barry Soetoro” for the past year?
They were WHITE and he HATES WHITE people.
“Why do you think we called him Barry Soetoro for the past year?”
Again, tell me more about him or give me a link.
I am not familiar with him.
