I am still completely floored that the American people were duped into electing this guy. However, the more I learn about him, the more afraid of him I become.

I bet very few of you knew he spent time in Pakistan when he was in college.


According to his campaign staff, Mr. Obama visited Pakistan in 1981, on the way back from Indonesia, where his mother and half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, were living. He spent “about three weeks” there, Mr. Obama’s press secretary, Bill Burton, said, staying in Karachi with the family of a college friend, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, but also traveling to Hyderabad, in India.

If he were not the POTOS, he would be on a "No Fly" list. That’s not it though, there is more...


US Presidential hopeful Barack Obama's mother Ann Dunham may have spent five years in Pakistan, working as an employee of the Asian Development Bank, about 15 years ago.

In a story headlined "Obama's mother stayed in Pakistan for five years", leading Urdu newspaper Daily Waqt reported that Dunham was hired as a consultant by the Asian Development Bank and travelled often from Lahore to Gujranwala.

"Ann Dunham lived in Pakistan for five years. During this time, Barack Obama also visited his mother and stayed for a few months. Ann Dunham was hired as a consultant by the Asian Development Bank for Pakistan's Agricultural Development Bank's Gujranwala Agricultural Development Programme. This programme began in 1987 and ended in 1992," the report said.

Okay, so on the one hand, the candidate for president was a POW, a war hero, son of an Admiral in the United States Navy, grandson of an Admiral in the United States Navy, and has served this Country in the Congress for 27 years.

On the other hand is a guy that no one knows anything about. A guy whose father isn't an American, whose mother has spent more time in Muslim nations than in the US, a man who was a member of a radical church, a man who spent time with a domestic terrorist, a man who was running for president longer than he was in the US senate.

Don't get me wrong, I don't like Bush or Cheney (for the record, I voted for Gore and then Kerry in 2000 and 2004 respectively), but while this guy spends the next three and a half years destroying this country, I'll have a clear conscience knowing that I voted for the American candidate in 2008.

You know, ive spent time in Ukraine, does that make me a eastern european gangsta?
My girlfriend lived in Iran, has family in Iran.. lived in Turkey and Georgia.
Does that make her a terrorist?
You do know, not all people in Pakistan are terrorists dont you?


he would be on a "No Fly" list

Why exactly would he be on a no fly list?


Don't get me wrong

Dont worry, its easy to see what your pushing here.

Oh noes, a well traveled president.

One that has actually been to the countries he has to deal with. That crazy lunatic probably took the time to learn their culture. Some say he had curry but I don't believe it.

Nice ...

What does it matter? Did he spend too much time in another culture? What if it was Britain? Would it make a differance?

I think you should be more worried of the fact that only he and mccain were selected for your vote. They put two people in front of you and said "pick." Thats something to be worried about.

Just for the record I did not vote.

So you have heard this before? Or are you just toeing the party (communist? socialist? fascist?) line?

Well traveled president, thats funny. Last I checked Hillary Clinton was FAR more well traveled, ohh and she is American.

I have never voted for a republican in my life, I am an educated east coast liberal. But Obama isn't American... I don't even believe he was born in the US.

I think that this guy is a Manchurian Candidate who was installed to destroy this country. I think that he has very strong Muslim ties. I think the People of the US voted for him because they were so feed up by the crooks called Republicans. I think CNN and MSNBC are his propaganda machines and I believe that he is trying to be the LAST president of the fromerly United States.

Just my thoughts, I hope I don't get to tell you I told you so.

Manchuria is at the Russia/China border not Pakistan.

Though feel free to run with the communist - muslim association contained within the above sentence.

A new thread perhaps?

Though you may have a point ... I've been to Bermuda and I do wear shorts ... so there's that.

So,because we arent up in arms that Obama has actually travelled, we must be commies or socialists? is that what your saying here?



Well traveled president, thats funny. Last I checked Hillary Clinton was FAR more well traveled, ohh and she is American.


Last time I checked, Hilary didnt even make it far enough to get elected, pretty sure when she blatantly lied about being under sniperfire, it hurt her chances. Or are you selective on which lies agit8 you?



I have never voted for a republican in my life, I am an educated east coast liberal. But Obama isn't American... I don't even believe he was born in the US.


Of the thousand threads debating this, im yet to actually see proof.
If you so educated, why do you say i have to be a communist or socialist if I dont get angry over this?


I think that he has very strong Muslim ties.

Why? Why does he have muslim ties?

Because he spent 21 days in Pakistan?
Is this why you believe he should be in the no fly list?
didnt you mention something above about educated?



I think the People of the US voted for him because they were so feed up by the crooks called Republicans. I think CNN and MSNBC are his propaganda machines and I believe that he is trying to be the LAST president of the fromerly United States.


I agree, the entire country, slash that.. WORLD was sick to death of the criminal republicans, that snoopy the dog could of been running and beaten the republicans. .. but you seem to believe Mccain was the be all and save all?



Look mate,
Personally, Obama hasnt lived up to his promises. I agree, but compared to Bush? hes a friggen god.
Now, im all for exposing these criminals like you, but when people use such stupid reasoning and material to try and paint this poster boy as a puppet, it does nothing but strengthen his standing.

Your trying to have us believe, Obama is a muslim, who sympathises with pakistani terrorists, while being born outside the US and having terrorist parents because they stayed in Pakistan all because

he

spent


21 days in pakistan, to see a college friend.

Spent time in Pakistan?
How about LIVED in Pakistan. Attended Muslim school in Pakistan.
That's a bit more than being "well traveled"

How many people know Obama is related to Cheney?

What? For spending less than a month there in 1981? Hello? 1981? Do you remember WTF you were doing in 1981? Do you know, or have you bothered to find out, what the US was doing in Pakistan in 1981?

OMG if it wasn't exactly what they're doing now...funneling weapons through there to Afghanistan...

How about all those embassy types who spent YEARS in Pakistan? Should they be on "No Fly" lists as well?

Christ, but you don't know squat about the world, do you?

How about the fact that he travelled from Pakistan to India? Do you know anything about the relationship between these two countries.

A decade and a half ago. Do you know what was happening in Pakistan then? Do you even know the name of the capital of Pakistan?


On the other hand is a guy that no one knows anything about. A guy whose father isn't an American,


Oh, My, God! How could those Californians have elected a man who wasn't even born in the US, whose father was a Nazi, who doesn't even sound American? Traitors, I tell you.


whose mother has spent more time in Muslim nations than in the US,


And whom he did not live with. Did you forget that rather pertinent fact, or was it more convenient never to learn that he grew up in Hawaii raised by his WHITE grandparents?


a man who was running for president longer than he was in the US senate.


Quick, nobody mention JFK...


but while this guy spends the next three and a half years destroying this country, I'll have a clear conscience knowing that I voted for the American candidate in 2008.


Of course you have a clear consience, ignorance is bliss.

I am still waiting to be convinced by Obama, but already he has proven himself to be the superior of Bush. The only success Bush had in his first 100 days was thanks to the lucky happenstance of an important senate vote which took Cheney out of the White House just after a stupid Chinese pilot decided to demonstrate his country's might.

Thereby leaving Colin Powell to handle the Foreign Policy. Just like his job description said.

But never let all the facts get in the way of your shrill ranting...

Do you know anything about a man named Zalmay Khalilzad?

A superior to Bush? Look I dont like Bush either , and i wont push an "Obama is a muslim" agenda here either.. But seriously , are you even WATCHING what this guy is doing to the country?

He is destroying the very foundation that this country was built on. He is taking EVERYTHING that belongs in the private sectors and that are sovereign to the states themselves and OBLITERATING them. Some people think this is ok, but dont you understand that when you take these things out of the hands of "the people" YOU dont have control of it anymore? CITIZENS wont have control anymore, you will be TOLD what you can and cant do.

The policies hes trying to implement WONT WORK. History has shown that they havent EVER worked, at the best it was a short term fix that ended in disaster.

Hes taking over the banks, hes taking over production etc etc etc....piece by piece by piece, THIS man is destroying this country.

Bush may have been an idiot, he may have done us wrong on the war, but i honestly dont think that he would INTENTIONALLY destroy this nation, which is what Obama seems to be doing....

I can see everything coming into view like a train wreck.......why is it people who support this guy so much cant see this? I know the WANT to believe in someone, i understand that......but open your eyes people......please for the sake of this country......

what this man is doing is destroying us

“On May 9, 2009, the American Grand Jury met and, after reviewing the evidence presented, indicted Barak Obama, aka Barry Soetoro for fraud and treason. Wednesday, May 13, 2009, the indictment was filed with the Clerk of Court, Catawba County, NC (file #09R81) and a copy of the indictment was sent by Certified Mail to District Attorney James C. Gaither (NC District 25B), for further action according to his Oath of Office.”


You bet he has other legal issues with lawsuits that are demanding answers and he has merely days left to respond to these indictments that include top ranking DNC members are named and having to answer by beginning of June.

Now, I'm going to go have a smoke and look at Venus; Beautiful planet in the morning.

Okay, lets discuss what some of us are saying.

In 1981 Pakistan was under Martial Law1 and in the midst of dealing with the Afgan-soviet war. Going to Pakistan then was much like going to Pakistan now. I don't think it’s a popular tourist destination. It’s not like going to see Big Ben or Parliament.

You have been to the movies in the past decade?

The 2004 version of the movie:


When his army unit was ambushed during the first Gulf War, Sergeant Raymond Shaw saved his fellow soldiers just as his commanding officer, then-Captain Ben Marco, was knocked unconscious. Brokering the incident for political capital, Shaw eventually becomes a vice-presidential nominee, while Marco is haunted by dreams of what happened -- or didn't happen -- in Kuwait. As Marco (now a Major) investigates, the story begins to unravel, to the point where he questions if it happened at all. Is it possible the entire unit was kidnapped and brainwashed to believe Shaw is a war hero as part of a plot to seize the White House? Some very powerful people at Manchurian Global corporation appear desperate to stop him from finding out.

Why? Why does he have muslim ties?


You are kidding right? In BHO's own words:


My father was almost entirely absent from my childhood, having been divorced from my mother when I was 2 years old; in any event, although my father had been raised a Muslim, by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist, thinking religion to be so much superstition.
3

From the liberal Washington Post:


Since declaring his candidacy for president in February, Obama, a member of a congregation of the United Church of Christ in Chicago, has had to address assertions that he is a Muslim or that he had received training in Islam in Indonesia, where he lived from ages 6 to 10. While his father was an atheist and his mother did not practice religion, Obama's stepfather did occasionally attend services at a mosque there.
4

Is this really the first time you are hearing that Mr. Obama has been surrounded by Islam all his life? If he was honest about his beliefs, then so be it. I believe that most people of the Muslim faith are good, peaceful people. I also believe that the most dangerous people in the world are people who believe that Islam calls for Jihad against all non-believers. I think it is relevant what the President believes.

If it’s not a big deal, why was it hidden so deeply by the MSM. If you sad these things during the campaign, you were a racist, now if you disagree with him or challenge his qualifications, you are a racist. I see a pattern emerging.

Firstly, he wasn't a US diplomat. He was a college student from a crappy California College on his way to Columbia University (how did that happen?).


As a freshman, he quickly became friends with Mohammed Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, two wealthy Pakistanis.

**snip**

When Obama arrived in New York, he already knew Siddiqi - a friend of Chandoo's and Hamid's from Karachi who had visited Los Angeles.

And to answer your other question... hmmm...the capital of Pakistan is ISLAMabad?


My point is that he got elected through fraud, just like Bush was appointed by the Supreme Court after stealing the Florida election, this guy hid his history from the American people and was installed to dismantle this country.

He is not the savior you have all been waiting for. I have never seen a candidate for president before that so little was known about him before he got elected. Its like his life was a big secret. Doesn't that scare you?

Don't forget the old saying: You can take the boy out of the country but you can't take the country out of the boy.

Obama is a muslim. He was born of a muslim father and blood is thicker than water. Political aspirations caused him to play the game in America. There are millions of men in America over history who played the game. There are countless athiests who attend large afluent churches just for the connections.

So where do we get the Don't blame me I didn't vote for him bumper stickers?

Because American citizens were not allowed to travel to Pakistan in 1981, this was around the same time the Pakistani govt. stood by and let a mob attack the US Embassy in Islamabad and then burn down the building and pick off a US Marine guard and let them rip apart 2 other Americans like a band of savages.

I don't think that the god you pray to qualifies or disqualifies a person from being president.

However, a person's religious beliefs say something about a man's character and world view. If you are pro-life, don't you want to know if the guy you are going to vote for shares your beliefs if that is a make or break criteria for you?

If a person is a pacifist (not saying that there is anything wrong with that) wouldn't you want to know that before voting for him to be the commander in chief of your armed forces?

The problem with Obama is that I still don't know what his core values are. I don't know if his idea of a successful administration is compatible with my view of where I want my country to head. I don't think any of you know what Obama really wants to change about this country and if you will like that change.
