I think the main thing I hear people complain about, besides Obama's foreign birth and Muslim faith, is his "arrogance." I mean, the guy talks like he actually knows what he's talking about! When was the last time we had a President who did that? Oh, the outrage!

IMO, he`s a man who has more class than most electors deserve. I wish we had someone like him representing us--common ordinary folks--in Canada.

I dunno, Mrr. I think he's sincere in his profession of Christianity. He seems to be a very truthful sort of person, and I don't think he'd lie about his religious affiliation. We progressive Catholics claim him as a 'compadre' because he worked as a community organizer for a consortium of Catholic parishes in Chicago, 1985-1988 - and because of the brilliant commencement address he gave at Notre Dame in 2009 in the face of opposition form right-wing Catholics.

No, just unfortunately true - we didn't object to anybody killing off ethnic moslems anywhere in Africa, but the Bosnians, now, that was another story...

I think he is an American, which as a type of dog means a mutt, and I like that term for most Americans; he's half African Moslem and half WASP, but raised in the least culturally American of the 50 states, and by grandparents who avoided all religion to avoid dissing either parent, very wise grandparents indeed; as he is highly intelligent, I assume he is an atheist who began attending church when he started his political career, and now professes christianity in protective mimicry; he was a teenager in the 70's so I doubt he looks down on casual drug use or homosexuality or casual sex; for the former and the latter, as a good father, the first and last of those better not concern his little girls, and there is no hypocrisy in this; and I think he really intended to get things done through compromise, and seemed unprepared for the depth and breadth of the obstacles that the Republicans and many Dermocrats were going to implacably refuse to allow him any progress with, resulting in compromises between two rational positions being replaced with one side remaining so obscenely rigidly against him that instead of the middle we ended up with some dreadful miscarriages of justice. Wonder if She stained Her gown.

No, pdq. It's not artbrooks, it's a disgustingly large proportion of right-wing Americans.

Unfortunate, but that happens to be the case, whether you see it or not, whether you like it or not.

Well, Obama did his undergraduate study 1979-1981 at Occidental College (Los Angeles, 1,825 students) and from 1981-1983 at Columbia University in New York, which has over 26,000 undergraduate students. I'm sure he would have been remembered if he had completed all four years at a small school like Occidental; but undergraduate students at huge universities like Columbia, are seldom remembered. I did security clearance investigations for the feds for 25 years, and one of my most frustrating tasks was finding professors and classmates who remembered undergraduate students. It's very easy to find people at universities who don't remember fellow students.

Kendall's right, though - it's so strange that there are so many people in the United States who almost seem to refuse to acknowledge even the existence of Barack Obama. Maybe it's a class thing, that they don't think Barack's blood is sufficiently blue. Most U.S. Presidents have come from famous families, or have been famous for decades before election. Obama was a U.S. Senator for four years, and was virtually unknown before that. Still, to be elected president of the Harvard Law Review in 1990 at the age of 28, is quite an accomplishment. The Los Angeles Times also has an interesting article on Obama's election to the Harvard Law Review.

I donno... I heard he's a Socialist, though I must admit that I have never heard of the country of Social... Guess is one of them Southeast Asian Muslim commie countries... I also hear that he may not actually been born there so he might not even be a Socialist at all??? Somethin' about them not using actual birth certificates in Social or his being forged... I donno...

Oh yeah, I also heard that he is neither black nor white nor nuthin' in between... Hmmmmmmmm??? I donno but he looks black to me... Well, not exactly black but brownish... I don't know what color the people in Social are but if they are indeed brownish then I think he has a purdy good argument that he is Socialist... Maybe someone with a better understandin' of geometry knows more about the folks from Social...

Well, that's about all I know... Hope it's helpful...

They keep hammering on the "Fact" that no one from his class in college remembers him. Who has something besides a few bits of info about him?

I have no idea.

People have asked that same question about Chongo Chimp. In Chongo's case, I can offer a good deal of cogent information as to who he is, but when it comes to Barack Obama, I am frankly at a loss. Perhaps Obama is an absolutely brilliantly conceived political android that was manufactured in secret by Microsoft or the Rand Coporation or somebody like that. ;-D

Some of my right wing friends keep harping on the lack of background info on him, like he is from another planet, and that no one admits knowing him in college.
Opinions?
