This alone should sink Obama's Reelection. Where's the outrage? (Vanity)
Dreams From My Father / YouTube ^ | May 19, 2012 | no dems

Posted on 05/19/2012 7:37:39 PM PDT by no dems

Sean Hannity exposed much about B. Hussein Obama lately taken from Obama's own words from his Book: "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance". He said many outlandish things; talked about his drug and alcohol abuse, hanging out with "Marxist Professors", etc. But, IMO, the most damning thing that he wrote and said was this statement:

"White Folk's Greed Runs a World In Need"

"White Folk's Greed....." That should go viral in every newspaper, cable news network, as well as GOP and Super PAC ads during this 2012 Presidential Election. Where is the outrage? Is anyone, besides Sean Hannity, getting this word out there. That statement alone, from a racist President, should be worth 5 percentage points of the vote.

Are the Republicans and the Romney camp going to just let this go? If so, we deserve to lose.

Too late. This country is swirling down the drain.

Well, it’s just like how “Mein Kampf” was dismissed by a lot of people until it was too late, by the reasoning that the author can’t have been serious about what he wrote.

“White Folk’s Greed” is just as racists as if someone were to use the phrase: “Black People’s Laziness”.

The old media does everything to protect the communist president, of course. I get almost as frustrated by conservative commentators and politicians referring to unemployment as (now) 8.1 percent — when, of course, it’s only that “low” because of the millions that have given up looking for work.It’s amazing how many people think unemployment is actually going down based on that fraudulent number, and Obama is benefiting from it.

Who says that Obumbo wrote it?
Bill Ayers has proudly claimed the HE is the author of Dreams.
I do not doubt it.
I do not think Obumbo could write anything on his own.

I remember reading that he was sent of to lounge around on Bali and write something. I do not recall the year.
He was even equipped with the most modern version of a portable electronic typewriter.
The story is that he lugged it up and down the beach, but never wrote a single word.

"White Folk's Greed Runs a World In Need"

What's intriguing about the passage is Obama's tone of voice as he delivers the subject paragraph.

The tone becomes hateful, expressing deep and malevolent feelings toward whites.

Indeed, every passage that he recites in his audiobooks that refer to white people undergoes a similar change in tone.

He doesn't like us white folk -- it's pretty obvious.

I don't like him much, either. So, I guess we're even.

Why would there be any ???

Willard Mitt romney admitted to smoking and drinking and doing drugs...

Where’s the outrage?

There wasnt one...

Instead hes now the maybe nominee for the GOP...

Thats a double standard since you asked me...

For anything the GOP can throw at Obama hes got the same back at them...

Ifr the GOP wanted it any other way they would have let one of the Conservatives win...

Good luck with your ABO

Until the story in Colombia broke about the Secret Service scandal, I felt sorry for them for having to be around Obama and his mooching wife. Now, I don't know what to think. I believe there are some good Secret Service guys and gals. I want to believe that.

I can't imagine having to work and protect such lazy, hateful, scum.

HOLD UP THERE GRANDMA!!! You’re gonna have to provide a source for that accusation. Romney was not my 1st, 2nd or 3rd choice, but Mormons don’t do drugs, smoke or drink. They don’t even drink coffee or sodas. I challenge that statement and I don’t believe it unless you can substantiate it from a credible source. If you can’t, then you are a gossip at best and a proponent of sedition at worst. Remember, I asked for a credible source.

IMHO...I think most people are so overwhelmed by life, just trying to survive, OR so dumbed down..the dancing with the stars crowd...there is no outrage. Who is going to voice that outrage...the MEDIA...don't make me laugh. And, where does one start to fight this montrous ever hungry government, that eats our hard won resourses and consumes our freedoms. We here at FR know it will take change at a grass roots level as well as our best efforts on a national level, but who have we had these last few decades to represent us? We are fighting for the survival of our republic against the mindset of the general populace that either doesn't care or can't even see it. Bread and circuses, people, bread and circuses. Our enemy is destroying America from within, and doing a damn good job of it. This great country, this shining city on a hill, little resembles the country of my youth. I was driving by our local HS yesterday and noticed many flags attached to the fencing surrounding the outdoor ball fields. Made me smile. Then I wondered in grade school if they still recite the pledge and sing God Bless America?

It's a long fight back.

In a sane world, having the following comments out in print via Obama’s racist books would have knocked him out of the running for president of the United States. (they would have crucified a white candidate for far less)

From Dreams from My Father, “ I FOUND A SOLACE IN NURSING A PERVASIVE SENSE OF GRIEVANCE AND ANIMOSITY AGAINST MY MOTHER’S RACE”. Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from my Father’, “The emotion between the races could never be pure, even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons or salvation, THE OTHER RACE (WHITE) WOULD ALWAYS REMAIN JUST THAT: MENACING, ALIEN, AND APART.” Barack Hussein Obama

From Dreams from My Father: “THAT HATE HADN’T GONE” he wrote, BLAMING “WHITE PEOPLE — some CRUEL, some IGNORANT, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless image of a system claiming power over our lives.” Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from My Father’, “There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs,” he wrote. “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on,to show your LOYALTY TO THE BLACK MASSES, TO STRIKE OUT and name names” Barack Hussein Obama

From ‘Dreams from My Father’, ‘I VOWED THAT I WOULD NEVER EMULATE WHITE MEN whose fates didn’t speak to my own. IT WAS INTO MY FATHER’S IMAGE, THE BLACK MAN, SON OF AFRICA, THAT I’D PACKED ALL THE ATTRIBUTES I SOUGHT IN MYSELF, THE ATTRIBUTES OF MARTIN AND MALCOLM, DUBOIS AND MANDELA’ Barack Hussein Obama

From The Audicity of Hope: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

From The Audicity of Hope: After graduating from college, Obama eventually went to Chicago to interview for a job as a community organizer. His racial attitudes came into play as he sized up the man who would become his boss: “There was something about him that made me wary,” Obama wrote. “A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.”

From The Audacity of Hope:..’the white race...“that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.”

From “Dreams”: (after making his first visit to Kenya, he wrote of being disappointed to learn that his paternal grandfather had been a servant to rich whites. that the revelation caused)“ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n-——”.

From The Audacity of Hope: “We are no longer just a Christian nation,” he argues in “Audacity,” which was published last year. “We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists.”

From ‘Audacity’: “Her memories of the Christians who populated her youth were not fond ones,” Obama wrote. “For my mother, organized religion too often dressed up closed-mindedness in the garb of piety, cruelty and oppression in the cloak of righteousness.”

“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different,” Obama wrote. “His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force

Then there is his love of Islam:

Quote from Barack Obama’s book, Dreams Of My Father:

“THE PERSON WHO MADE ME PROUDEST OF ALL, THOUGH, WAS MY [half brother], ROY..HE CONVERTED TO ISLAM”.

From ‘Dreams of my Father’, “IN INDONESIA, I SPEND TWO YEARS AT A MUSLIM SCHOOL” “..I STUDIED THE KORAN..”

From ‘Audacity of Hope: “LOLO (Obama’s step father) FOLLOWED ISLAM....”I LOOKED TO LOLO FOR GUIDANCE”.

From ‘The Audacity Of Hope, “I WILL STAND WITH THEM (MUSLIMS) SHOULD THE POLITICAL WINDS OF WAR SHIFT IN AN UGLY DIRECTION..” .

From The Audacity Of Hope, “WE ARE NO LONGER JUST A CHRISTIAN NATION, we are also a Jewish nation, a MUSLIM NATION, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.”

I think you are right. Romney may win the election, but he will not have the courage to use executive power to reverse some of Obama's Marxist orders and we will continue to slide.

These are not ostensibly Obama's words. He was quoting the Rev. J. Wright. See http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0308/Obamas_Wright_White_folks_greed.html.

He recites the quote with such fervor, however, that it's tough to believe he doesn't agree with the Rev. Wright.

Get used to disappointment. Romney is going to kiss obama's arsa all the way through November. The only question I have is will willard suspend his campaign before or after the choreographed financial crisis and war with Iran this summer to "unite behind our president".

But since you're so opposed to it, which charity will benefit most form your estimated $10m fortune generated largely from your fictional autobiography? And when the time post-national-nightmare-hoc you'll really hit pay dirt, what with the crony paybacks and all; get that foundation set up now!

Mitt Romney ‘Tasted A Beer And Tried A Cigarette Once As A Wayward Teenager’

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney admitted he tried alcohol and cigarettes as a teenager despite Mormon prohibitions against drinking and smoking.

“I tasted a beer and tried a cigarette once as a wayward teenager, and never did it again,” Romney says in an upcoming interview with People magazine.

Romney said that his aversion to drugs and alcohol was “a religious thing.”

Mitt Romney tried beer, cigarette, he says in People magazine story

A bombshell revelation in the upcoming issue of “People” magazine: Mitt Romney has, in fact, tasted alcohol, and also tried a cigarette, despite the Mormon Church’s prohibitions on drinking and smoking.

The shocking admission, previewed in excerpts of the Dec. 5 issue:

PEOPLE: Have you ever had a beer?

Romney: Never had drinks or tobacco. It’s a religious thing. I tasted a beer and tried a cigarette once, as a wayward teenager, and never did it again.

Mitt Romney’s not-so bombshell admission: He ‘tasted a beer and a tried a cigarette once, as a wayward teenager’

Mitt Romney is out to prove he’s not the boring guy depicted by some commentators, and has, in fact, got an edgy side.

The Republican presidential candidate drops a bombshell revelation on voters in the forthcoming issue of People magazine: he once ‘tasted’ a beer and a cigarette.
Despite the Mormon Church’s ban on smoking and drinking, he said in the December 5 issue of the magazine that he tried both as a wayward teenager, according to Politico.com.

Asked if he had ever had a beer, he responded: ‘Never had drinks or tobacco. It’s a religious thing. I tasted a beer and tried a cigarette once, as a wayward teenager, and never did it again.’

The rock ‘n’ roll admission comes hot on the heels of a Saturday Night Live skit named Raw And Unleashed, where Romney, played by Jason Sudeikis, tries to portray himself as a wild and crazy dude.

Yeah, Willard is going to take the “high road” just like that other ass McCain did. While the dems play full contact politics, the other side plays charades.

I wanted a candidate who would go out and keep pushing these points 24/7. Hardly can one be called a racist when the words were uttered by His Excellency. Not only uttered but put into print also.

So, what we have here is a failure to communicate augmented with a dose of the good guy syndrom....Hey Romnoid, the good guys only win in books and on black and white TV reruns. You had the nats to go after every conservative in the primaries like a sidewinder after a tailpipe, why not against the real opposition, unless of course you are one of them?

God I really hate the fact I have to pull the lever for this ass.

This came out in 2008 and is a quote by Obama from a speech by Rev. Wright, supposedly from the first Wright sermon he heard. The odd thing is that Obama was not questioned more about this when he later claimed that this sort of language did not represent the Wright he knew.

Republicans generally refuse to be outraged..
Thats the difference between a republican and a RINO..

Its impossible to outrage a RINO.. AND...
Why they are running the inventor of Romney-Care against the inventor of Dohbama-Care..

Conservatives are not welcome in the republican party.. they are tolerated..
