Sarah makes a valid point, had Obama been a Conservative instead of a Socialist/Marxist Flaming Radical Liberal he would have been looked up one side then the other.

I know and can find out much more about anyone in politics than this guy. Why is that?

What is Obama hiding? You don't have to be a conspiracy fanatic to ask questions that should not have to be asked.

After all the Obama disciples who blindly voted for this clearly unqualified know nothing put him in charge of the most power Nation that has ever been in the History of the world.

Obama is out to change that.

He did say that and the dummies fell for it thinking it was a good thing.




Palin: Why No Probe of Barack 'Hussein' Obama?


Thursday, 23 Sep 2010 04:29 PM
By: David A. Patten

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin alleges that the media has a blatant double standard, shining intense scrutiny on GOP Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell while turning a blind eye to then-candidate Barack Obama's personal history in the 2008 campaign.

During an interview with Fox News host Greta Van Susteren Wednesday night, Palin said: "Funny . . . That we are learning more about Christine O'Donnell and her college years, her teenage years, her financial dealings than anybody ever even bothered to ask about Barack Hussein Obama as a candidate and now as our president."

While I may have agreed with the stated message the obvious attempt to discredit President Obama in some way by highlighting his middle name is offensive. Is the author trying to imply that Hussein is middle eastern and therefore the president is less trustworthy. Maybe trying to hide his middle name. Shame on you David Patten. I don't really expect anything less from fox. They live off of fear, hate and ignorance.

Also, you may not like the president but I believe he deserves a little respect. The same as President Bush. Calling him by his first, middle and last name is very disrespectful.

Say wha?

"George Walker Bush" is disrespectful to him? John Fitzgerald Kennedy? Franklin Delano Roosevelt?

It seems that if you think "Hussein" is disrespectful, then YOU must be the one who has the prejudice against the name.

Sarah Palin is as freaken rock, she must have been asleep during the campaign. Or maybe it was that phone call from Nicolas Sarkosy? :lamo

No probe? What planet are these people from?

I'm hearing all about his days in college, he gets attacked about his time as a community organizer, Palin said he was "palling around with terrorists." His birth certificate has been analyzed by way too many people. The GOP has stood up and proclaimed he has a TOTALLY SOCIALIST VOTING RECORD!

Hiding? I know more about this president's past than the last four combined, and all of that information came from the right-wing's screeching about every little thing he's done. No "probe?" You're delusional, Palin.

Maybe you misread the post. The highlight was on the middle name and that was what is disrespectful. It has been used repeatedly in a disrespectful way by the right.

If you want to be technical, yes. You refer to them by the highest office. All should be respected. President Bush, President Kennedy and President Roosevelt. Just like a General even after retiring is still refer ed to by the highest rank.

The problem is putting it in quote, therefore emphasizing it.

That goes without saying. Can't believe she's still in the ****ing news. I guess the public just likes to watch idiots in action
A disturbing percentage of them will just accept this without questioning it. They just wont bother to think about how they hear constantly about the president's past and will still agree when someone tells them they don't know anything. They'll also agree when you tell them Obama is the Liberal Messiah, and then the next pundit comes on talking about how liberals are "fleeing from Obama" and just accept THAT also. He's the messiah but I don't like him? Ok.

Of course, these are people who've never in their lives paid less taxes than they did in 2009 but still came up with the slogan "Taxed Enough Already."

I've heard a ton of stuff about Obama coming from right wing media and pundits so I don't get all this confusion about who is this man Obama. I mean, just google it! Just some recycled manufactured outrage. Aren't you folks tired of that yet?! LOL!!

That would apply to someone who joined with her running mate (McCain) during the lost election, in condemning those who did the very thing she now does.

I personally think it was intentional on her part, to get the media talking.
However, I also think she wanted them to talk about the bias in the media after they got finished bashing her.
Obama's past was NOT looked into before the election by the MSM.
Yet we are going to know every little thing that can be dug up on O'Donnell before Nov.2.

I think we are talking about before he was elected.
Find ONE tough question about his past from any journalist.
I can think of a couple. It was about Bill Ayes. Obama said "he was some guy in his neighborhood." The probe stopped there.
Rev. Wright? " I've never heard him say those things" probe stopped there.

ODonnell on witchcraft. "That was in HS. Who didn't have strange friends in HS." The probe keeps probing and probing into her witchcraft past.

Coons on his Marxism. No questions. He was only 21. It has no relevence.

Fox poll; 83% say O'Donnell is not being treating fairly by the MSM.

I love how you attack Obama about Rev Wright, but then believe he is a secret muslim. It's unfrickin believable.

He's a secret muslim who wants to impose sharia law and is also a socialist who wants communism. Because those two things really are compatible.

Dear Sarah Palin,

Don't put the name Hussein in quotation marks. It's his name, his middle name. You don't need to emphasize it in order to make a point about a political process. All it does is show you to be a petty self-righteous hypocrite out for political-points, and fanning bigotry toward people of Arab decent. Hussein is an Arab name, right?

Learn to criticize your opponents accurately. Call a Liberal a Liberal. Don't bother with the hyperbolic labels. Okay, 'Sarah.'

Thanks you loony witch.

If she had written it and used the quotation marks, you would have a point. She did not though. She was being interviewed on the air and just said it. The quotation marks for emphasis was added by the writer of the article.

I have no use for Palin. I think she is the exact kind of politician we do not need in this country. However, this time she did not do much wrong. She is factually wrong(remember all the things we heard about Obama and, for example Rev. Wright?), but she did not emphasize his middle name with quotation marks.

Not a chance. She gets paid $100,000 to talk. It doesn't matter what you say when you get paid like that. Delusion? Not at all with that kind of dough. Greedy bitch? Absolutely.

There's no law saying your beliefs have to make sense. Or be non-contridictory. Frick, so many people here have inherently contridictory beliefs. Like the idiot wankers here who think that cutting taxes for small business who aren't make any money as it is while reducing government spending will cause jobs to increase and want to end unemployment benefits. Wait. Less demand + less taxes on those not paying taxes anyways + less money in the hands of those who actually spend it = more jobs?

And people think Voodoo is weird. You ain't seen nothing yet.

Now, if memory serves me correct, multiple major news networks traveled to the school Obama attended when he was 7 years old. People looked at newspapers from the day he was born to find a notice of his birth. Everything his grandmother ever said was scrutinized. Every person he ever spoke with came to light. His association with William Ayers was sensationalized even though the two men barely knew each other.

The stuff on O'Donnell has come to light because she said those things on national television. Replaying her appearances in front of an audience of millions of viewers is hardly an intrusive probe.

There are so many legitimate questions to ask, but this "what don't we know about Obama" BS is so tiresome.

Please give an example of how President Obama is making us a communist state. If you can, also please link Muslim states to communism.
