    This at first was my main objection to Obama, before I read the Sinclair issue.

    I was stunned that a person so focused on and utilizing race and elevating minorities to promote himself had in the recent past utterly trounced them off the ballot in Chicago to run unopposed. He even went to lengths to have his team of lawyers comb through a perennial-loser candidate's petition "just to be sure", or more likely "to be even and fair". His main opponent then was a beloved black lady incumbant who he knew he couldn't beat by just his own substance, so he had her petitions challenged. In the interest of fairness he challenged all the others to make it look like he wasn't singling her out...which of course he was..

    Chicago politicians...:cool:

    Here's an excerpt or two from the Chicago Tribune article on the matter:
    Source: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-070403obama-ballot,0,1843097.story

    The pro-Obama-for-now-so-Hillary-doesn't-get-nominated media is already gearing up to "debunk" the facts in the case to make it seem like the four minorities running against Obama "deserved it".

    No one combed through his petitions. And in fact if they took a sampling of petitions across the US for candidates they would find candidacy-killing flaws in each and every one of them. Obama's would be no exception. In fact, I'd like to see a team of lawyers comb through his petitions to get on the ballot for president for any flaws..:p

    This issue was my original objection to Obama. I thought, "If he can do this to fellow minorities, all while pretending to care and uphold them, what else is he capable of?" The mind tends to wander. Then I read the Sinclair story and began to realize the potential gravity of those musings..

    Freddoso's book was written from factual accounts. He wants people to see what really happened in Obama's past, a thing Obamabots and GOP strategists/BigMedia want us to ignore until after Denver. The GOP will (and you can mark your calendars on this one) wind up pulling quotes from Freddoso's book, to "blame" him as the source of smears for "their legitimate concerns about Obama" post-Denver.

    Yes, that's right, the same people lambasting the book for the public to ignore due to it's "lack of credibilty" are simultaneously combing its pages to load their arsenal come September.

    Politics, dont' you love them?

    More excerpts from The Chicago Tribune article

    Page two:

    Now there's an interesting insight into Obama's true character (we are provided with so very few since we are in danger of being labelled "racist" if we inquire). Here is a man who knows that beating down fellow opponents on techincalities likely even he is guilty of on his petitions is inherantly bad juju, he still proceeds. In other words, this is a man who isn't acting from a neocon kneejerk meanness, but actually searches his soul, finds that what he is doing is wrong, hypocritical and ruthless, and then GOES AHEAD ANYWAY AND DOES IT IN THE NAME OF GETTING WHAT HE WANTS.

    More character insights to follow...

    Weird the right posters here have no comment on Freddoso's book or one of its sources, The Chicago Tribune article..

    From page 1. Here's a profile of one of the candidates Obama cleared from the ballot on petty petition infractions to run unopposed:

    Good objection, I think both are valid!

    That was then. This is now.

    Politics is like that. If Obama was running against Clinton, I'd be on his butt like flies on dookie.

    But in today's reality (a place I like to call "home"..lol..) we have two candidates. Obama is the lesser of two evils.

    even if you have changed, Obama has not. So forgive me but I cant stop talking about it, not now not after Nov 4th (should he be elected by voter fraud :) )

    "The People vs. Barack Obama: The criminal case against the Obama Administration" by Ben Shapiro.

    I will look into Freddoso's book. Thank you.

    There's a to US problem, though. Hillary isn't the one.
