Say What, Barrack ???

Do read it through



Gives an idea of what politicians say and how they amend the facts

and the character of the man..







Say What, Barrack?

By Paul R. Hollrah

Tuning in to C-Span recently, I found myself listening to a speech
by Senator Barrack Hussein Obama, Jr. He was standing in the pulpit of a
black church in Selma, Alabama, and as I studied the body language of
the dozen or so black ministers standing behind the senator, I couldn't
help but be reminded of the little head-bobbing dolls that people used
to place in the rear windows of their 1957 Chevrolets. If their
reactions are any indication, the new "Schlickmeister" of the Democrat
Party is actually a pretty accomplished public speaker.

However, as he spoke, I found my b.s. alarm going off, repeatedly.
But I couldn't quite figure out why until I actually read excerpts of
his speech several days later. Here's part of what he said:

"...something happened back here in Selma, Alabama. Something
happened in Birmingham that sent out what Bobby Kennedy called,
"ripples of hope all around the world." Something happened when a
bunch of women decided they were going to walk instead of ride the bus
after a long day of doing somebody else's laundry, looking after
somebody else's children.

"When (black) men who had PhD's decided 'that's enough' and
'we're going to stand up for our dignity,' that sent a shout across
oceans so that my grandfather began to imagine something different for
his son. His son, who grew up herding goats in a small village in Africa
could suddenly set his sights a little higher and believe that maybe a
black man in this world had a chance.

"So the Kennedy's decided we're going to do an airlift. We're
going to go to Africa and start bringing young Africans over to this
country and give them scholarships to study so they can learn what a
wonderful country America is.

"This young man named Barack Obama got one of those tickets and
came over to this country. He met this woman whose great
great-great-great- grandfather had owned slaves; but she had a good idea
there was some craziness going on because they looked at each other and
they decided that we know that, (in) the world as it has been, it might
not be possible for us to get together and have a child. There was
something stirring across the country because of what happened in Selma,
Alabama, because some folks are willing to march across a bridge. So
they got together and Barack Obama Jr. Was born. So don't tell me I
don't have a claim on Selma , Alabama. Don't tell me I'm not coming
home to Selma, Alabama."

Okay, so what's wrong with that? It all sounds good. But is it?

Obama told his audience that, because some folks had the courage to
"march across a bridge" in Selma, Alabama, his mother, a white woman
from Kansas, and his father, a black Muslim from Africa, took heart. It
gave them the courage to get married and have a child. The problem with
that characterization is that Barrack Obama, Jr., was born on August 4,
1961, while the first of three marches across that bridge in Selma
didn't occur until March 7, 1965, at least five years after Obama's
parents met.

Obama went on to tell his audience that the Kennedys, Jack and
Bobby, decided to do an airlift. They would bring some young Africans
over so that they could be educated and learn all about America. His
grandfather heard that call and sent his son, Barrack Obama, Sr., to
America.

The problem with that scenario is that, having been born in August
1961, the future senator was not conceived until sometime in November
1960. So if this African grandfather heard words that ''sent a shout
across oceans,'' inspiring him to send his goat-herder son to America,
it was not a Democrat Jack Kennedy he heard, nor his brother Bobby, it
was a Republican President, Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Obama's speech is reminiscent of Al Gore's claim of having
invented the Internet, Hillary Clinton's claim of having been named
after the first man to climb Mt. Everest, even though she was born five
years and seven months before Sir Edmund climbed the mountain, and John
Kerry's imaginary trip to Cambodia.

As one of my black friends, Eddie Huff, has said, "We need to ask
some very serious questions of the senator from Illinois. It's not
enough to be black, it's not enough to be articulate, and it's not
enough to be eloquent and a media darling. The only question will be how
deaf an ear, or how blind an eye, will people turn in order to turn a
frog into a prince."

That's funny but if we take the time to call BS on all these damn politicans, we would never have time to elect anyone. I'm sick of every one of these people who think they are "God's Gift to the USA"
