I like a person with ideals.
This is a great list of the suspicions and doubts that have been planted in the public's brains. None of these rumors are true, however.
1. He was raised by his grandparents. He did know some Marxists and revolutionaries in his life, but so have I. You are putting entirely too much emphasis on his associations. Everything you listed is suspicious rumor.
Wonder where that came from?

What better way to hide things than in plain sight?
The Inconsistent Liberal Mind By Peter Heck
Much is being made of President Obama's recent decision to employ presidential signing statements -- refusing to enforce certain portions of a Congressional budget bill he signed into law -- given that during the 2008 campaign he railed against such a practice, proclaiming, "We're not gonna use signing statements as a way of doing an end run around Congress." This glaring inconsistency would strike most people as hypocritical. But coupled with his decisions to use military tribunals after blasting them during the campaign, to keep Guantanamo open for business after previously blaming it as nothing but a recruiting tool for al-Qaeda, and to start new wars after vociferously condemning "dumb" ones, this is par for the Obama course.
But beyond the blatantly obvious flip-flops which the Obama-loving mainstream press find a way to excuse as just part of the president's remarkably nuanced mind, this behavior fits a much larger pattern of inconsistency that has come to define the liberal mind in America. Inconsistencies that should bring great embarrassment when exposed, and that rationality would demand be confronted and resolved, are systematically embraced and welcomed in the land of left-believe.
How else can one explain the recent protest that took place in Washington, D.C.? There, over 40 liberals (including the city's mayor and several councilmen) took to the streets to complain that the budget deal recently passed by Congress would deprive the nation's capital city of federal tax dollars to fund abortions. In the name of choice, these left-wing activists blocked the streets until being detained by police. On its own, seeing a group of liberals championing the right to choose to kill children in the womb is nothing new.
