President Barack Obama spoke to the White House Tribal Nations Conference of Native American groups at the Interior Department Wednesday. The chairman of the conference, Brian Cladoosby of the Swinomish Nation, reportedly suggested that Obama is the first "American Indian" president.
"Think about it for a second," Cladoosby said, according to the pool report. "The president loves basketball. He has an Indian name, he knows what it's like to be poor and he hasn't forgotten where he came from. And his theme song is 'Hail to the Chief.' I think he definitely qualifies as the first American Indian president."
Earlier pool reports stated Obama was greeted by the group enthusiastically, including a shout of "four more years" from the audience. The president touted his adminstration's efforts to "[expand] economic opportunities" and encouraged Congress to support Native American small businesses.
Update: According to a transcript of Obama's remarks, there may be something to the claim. The president memorialized a recently deceased leader of the Crow Nation, Sonny Black Eagle. "Sonny Black Eagle adopted me into the Crow Nation during my 2008 campaign," Obama said.
Next we'll find out Obama is the First Lesbian President
The only native blood in Obama is East African.
So I guess Lizzie Warren is the second American Indian Senator? (After Ben Nighthorse, of course)
“Sonny Black Eagle adopted me into the Crow Nation during my 2008 campaign,”
Jim Beckwourth was also adopted into the CROW tribe. He was later poisoned by the same people.
Anyone notice that most of the Indian tribes voted for Obama, except in Oklahoma.
Fake.... Just like Ward Churchill and the incoming ***** senator from MA, Liz Warren.
When did he shorten his last name?
And don’t forget, he has his very own bison.
What Injun name, paleface?
Obama's Indian Name: He Who Rides Wookie.....
Now that's something to "Crow" about.
He wants to put all of us on Reservations: regions of forced government dependency, with schools committed to changing our culture.
Ah, sure thing, Chief. You can fool some of the people all of the time.
Bought and paid for.
The Sioux (of which I am a member) despise the Crow. They were thieves and traitors who scouted for Custer.
Calvin Coolidge was the first.
Chief Dances With Sasquatch.
half-breed pussy, chief
He's a "brave" in the Sosqueemish tribe....
This is great, now we have jerkballs making up their own delusions. Now we don’t need the media any more to promulgate total idiocy. I find this refreshing, especially coming on the anniversary of Fermi’s successful chain reaction in CP-1, the reactor built under the stadium stands in Chicago in 1941. We are now self-breeding, self deluding beings. This is so much more efficient than the old way, and think of all the bumper stickers that don’t have to be printed. Yep, it’s green! Got that going for it, too!
I knew someone would post that!
Chief Steaming Panty-Load of the Lying Dog tribe.
Brian Cladoosby talks like he has been at the fire water again.
If being Indian was important, then the media would have noticed that Governor Palin’s husband, children, and grand child, are all tribal members, instead the media has sometimes tried to portray her as a leader of white racial purity.
I even had an internet argument with the writer of such a news story. The publisher wanted to print my responses, which I eagerly agreed to, but the writer blocked it.
“The president loves basketball. He has an Indian name, he knows what it’s like to be poor and he hasn’t forgotten where he came from. And his theme song is ‘Hail to the Chief.’ I think he definitely qualifies as the first American Indian president.”
The only part this idiot got right is that Obma likes Basketball.
Obama was never poor, he attended a prestigious expensive school.
Maybe Obama has never forgotten where he came from—but the rest of us don’t know.
Hail to the Chief is not this crapheads theme song it is a tune played for all Presidents.
Well, Thelma and Louise were driving a Thunderbird so I guess this all wraps up somehow, Karma-wise.
i think his indian name is two dogs .......
I must have been unknowingly prophesying this afternoon. I was talking to someone about Obummer and Mooochelle, and I referred to her as his SQUAW. Looks like I was correct. What’s HER tribe, I wonder?
Frowns Like Mad Buffalo
Walking Eagle (too full of sh*t to fly)
Still, history repeats, and Great Half-white Father speaks with forked tongue...
I have a piece of that reactor. (a slice of graphite block embedded in lucite)
Chief Steaming Turd of the Dog Log Tribe...
Billy Clinton was an honorary member of the Cherokee tribe out of Tahlequah OK, kind of like Ward Churchill.
