Barack Obama told the world during a debate with John McCain, that if he had “actionable intelligence that Bin Laden was hiding in Pakistan and Musharraf (then President) was unwilling to do anything about it”, he would unilaterally take action to take Bin Laden out. “We will move Heaven and Earth to get him”, Obama continued. McCain ridiculed that position and made clear he would not take unitaleral action in another country to get Osama Bin Laden.

The next Presidential election being held in 2012, appears to be the latest-starting Presidential election in a very long time. Memory of the most recent past elections seemed to have begun well before this point in time.

The Republican Right Wing on their crazed talk shows always refer to Obama’s African roots, but in that way that all of us know is intended to besmirch the man, that African! However, he is half white and yet that side of his family is never mentioned. Guess why? Because that is not going to awaken that latent racist in many of you, that you will never admit to. To those whom this message is directed to by default, you know you would rather not drink, eat, live next to or have as President, a black man.
