He may be not Muslim, but with Obama as his name, he better make sure he gets that out into the open ... and then, for many people, it still won't matter. It sounds Islamic.

Barak Hussein Obama, named in respect to his Nigerian father and raised in Hawaii with his white American mother and her family.  Very little mention of that appears in any of his books.  Not that it really matters, I reckon.  When I first heard of him, I saw a black American from Illinois running for a Senate seat with phenomenal oratory skills and shining with charisma.  And though I'm a Republican (Moderate Liberal), I'd vote for him if I thought he was the best candidate for the job of President.  Howsoever, all I've heard regarding his parentage has been focused on his Nigerian father whom he met as a late teen on a trip to Nigeria, not the actual person who gave birth, raised, educated, clothed, fed, housed, entertained, supported and imbued with the characteristics which have carried him this far.  Perhaps if he does run, I'll finally be able to see the person he's kept locked in the closet all these years: his mom.

Obama's mother isfrom Kansas.

When Mr Obama was six, his mother, Ann, married an Indonesian oil manager and the family moved to Jakarta. The boy lived there for four years, but then moved back to Hawaii to live with his grandparents and attend school.

Both his parents are now dead.

Obama’s Dad, a Muslim from Kenya, left home when he was two. His Mom remarried and went with her new husband to Indonesia where Obama lived during his salad years. It is well known that Obama, the teenager lived with his grandparents in Hawaii, where he attended the same school attended by Hawaii royalty. Yet little is known about who Obama’s step father was. But some say that he was an Indonesian national and a Muslim.

Still, Obama must have attended school in Indonesia. Is it possible that as a young Muslim boy he went to a Saudi madrassa?

Yes, that’s a possibility.

The chapters in the Life and Times of Barak Obama always race ahead. It was during one of those chapters when we found him taking up community organizing in the Altgeld Gardens housing project on the south side of Chicago, when he converted to Christianity, formerly being secular. (www.brainsip.com).

As a fledgling Christian, Obama didn’t join just any church. He joined the United Church of Christ.

The United Church of Christ is very anti-Israel and supports divestment. It also sponsors speeches at its many functions by the Arab "Christian" pro-terror religious organization, Sabeel. Sabeel holds some of its biggest meetings in Chicago., (www.scoop.,co, nz/stories/HL05 10/500139.htm).

Actually, John, that's a very accurate description. The Democratic presidential list,  present and past, is filled with some of the most un-charismatic figures in history. Gore, Kerry, Hillary...the three combined have the personality of a parking meter. Obama gives a good speech, shows charisma and a very likeable personality, and immediately becomes a front-runner. It's definitely a personality decision. They know they have to have a likeable candidate, qualifications (or lack of) a side issue. It worked with Billy and hasn't with anyone else they have presented so why not?

Simon Cowell would approve

Obama agrees with you guys:

quote:
I am suspicious of the hype," he said at his press conference. He downplayed the fuss over his potential candidacy, saying he is just the flavor of the moment and a mere "symbol or stand-in for a spirit that says we are looking for something different—something new.


If he can stay level headed, this could become interesting.

I am reading this with interest as I am very impressed with Obama.  I think he will be smart enough to keep his head on, his act together, and might hopefully cause a few surprises.

"What or who is the President of the
United States supposed to be?"

I think he's usually male, white, and upper class, oh yeah, and Christian. Must have a well fitting suit. Background and/or experience not necessary due to the team of experts that will re-write it. Must be articulate, charismatic, and able to Hulahoop the truth, without getting caught with his drawers down.

Sorry, not pickin' on your question, just supplying an answer from my twisted mind.

Hillary?

Isn't she the founder of the "Ex-First Lady's Wives Club?"

"First Lady's ex-President's" Club?
"First ex-President's Wife to be President" club?

it's something like that.


think about it.

Hillary Rodham Clinton as President, and Bill as First Man (ever).

divorce them?

they are different, but obviously reconcilable.


peace~
Reg
