      Don't you teach you child speak, read and write? Probably not.

        What I meant was that I did not have parents who had high educational achievement. And I appreciated whatever and how small learning I acquired from my beloved parents and certainly I appreciate and admire the achievements and success of our President and the First Family. Sorry if anyone misconstrued what I meant.

      Obama's mother was a noted and documented welfare and food stamp recipient–what work? Before or after she became a repository for as much exotic seed as she could "stomach"?

        She was a leech and taught obama to be the same. obama traveled broke and with a homosexual to Pakistan under an Indonesian passport. Disappeared for over a year. When he returned he started using the name Barrack obama. He had a tremendous amount of financial backing. So much that he turned down federal campaign money to avoid disclosure. Why did a Saudi prince give Harvard a $25million gift on obama's behalf? obama is the king of leeches and has been giving the Arabs their money back by the boat load. Also most that achieve a Harvard law ticket cherish it. obama gave his up and never filed a single case in court. Was it real??? Strange

    • Welcome bigots and conspiracy nuts!

      Howdy! Pres Obama's mother obviously was a horrid American. Went to school, got a degree, did valuable work, had opinions... what a terrible example for your children. Of course, the fact that she was married as nearly as many times as Newt Gingrich proves your point, right? She, like all other good American Mothers, should have put that birth certificate in a federally secure facility if it's legit, right? All good Paulistas have their birth certificates fully notarized with back up files and secure locations and triple lock safes, right? No wonder so many of you support Ron Paul!! It would make meth, crack and pot so much easier to obtain!

      We can only "hope" that they do and honest portrayal of Stanley Ann Duham and not a piece that shows what the media wants us to see. This was a very conflicted woman who had a major identity problem. Her life was extraordinarily difficult with much anger and rage. If it all comes up looking like roses I will not be surprised.

    oh yes, the (now) renowned collectivist (marxist)... her academic records, that are public, indicate her political views... as Im sure obamas would also, if they were not sealed from the public, who certainly have the right to know their content. This woman was a real piece of work!

        Wanna know what is comical?

        When a Ship is Sinking, the first ones off are the Rats. LOL.
        For example,
        DemocRAT Senator Ben Nelson is retiring,
        DemocRAT Senator Daniel Akaka is retiring,
        DemocRAT Senator Kent Conrad is retiring,
        DemocRAT Senator Jeff Bingaman is retiring,
        DemocRAT Senator Jim Web is retiring,
        DemocRAT Senator Herb Kohl is retiring,
        and DemocRAT-leaning Joe Liberman is retiring.

        And that is just the Senators!

        Wow, no need for the Dems to even go out and vote for Pres this year, as the Pres will probably only be in for a month before he is,,, what is the word I am looking for????

        Libs, why even bother????

      • blucorsair

        Izy; Apparently there are issues with Obama's supposed mother's credentials! Even Jimmy Carters drunken half wit brother got more real scrutiny than either Obama or his mother, because we would have heard more by now from the liberal biased media! You're not kidding anybody here. CNN, MSNBC and news organizations like the N.Y.Times have been in a steady state of decline for followers in the last 25 years simply, because nobody believes them anymore! This is why FOX is number one and the rest really don't matter! It's apparent, that people like youself from the left can't win on the issues and have been reduced down to name calling and playing the race card!'re defending the undefendable and it won'tl prevail in 2012!

        Tell us the truth – you saw what Media Matters said Fox News said. You libs do know Media Matters takes what Fox says, puts their spin on it then posts it as what Fox said.,right? It took me a while to figure out where the libs were getting the false information about Fox News. Once I found the Media Matters Web Site many of the ignorant comments from libs about Fox were easy to understand. Now I love reading Media Matters to check out their "spin".

I feel sorry for you brother, you live in your own fantasy world. I do appreciate the work of good people like Mr. Obama's mother. To call her a socialist when in fact she is doing the right thing our world desperately needs. Oh I forgot, you will now call me a socialist as well. I might as well reserve my energy and better talk to someone who will listen. I hop the good Lord one day open your heart and teach you the right path.

      actually're an imbeccile. I can't think of any other description for someone like you. Instead of trying to arguing what's wrong with Obama's policies, you result to Fake News insults. In fact, I know 5 year olds that would put you to shame because these children can actually think and defend a reasoned position. You couldn't do that if you tried, and therefore the village idiot amoungst us. I apologize if this is insulting. I said that I would turn over a new leaf and avoid calling Tea Potty heads names in the year. But in your case, imbeccile, idiot, those are perfect descripters.

        Thanks Trace for stating facts about Jerry. As for your New Year's resolution....I've always considered the best resolution to tell it like it is.

        The imbecile jerry hasn't researched far enough to realize that his supposed "communist" probably wouldn't have been working, in Indonesia, for the welfare of women with such well known organizations like USAID, the World Bank, the Ford Foundation, and several other groups interested in bettering the lives of women. He only wants to suck on that stupid swill Faux touts as news.

    Did she ever apologize to the country for the globalist interventionist she gave birth too, by the way how many times did she take him to the Pearl Memorial while he lived there, NOT ONCE I bet.

    December 31, 2011 at 10:23 am |
    • jean2009

      This was not the president’s first visit to the Pearl Harbor memorial; as president-elect Obama visited the memorial in late 2008.
      If the truth be known I imagine the 2008 visit was not his first visit there either. Being a grandparent, I am sure it was something his grandparents would have taken him to see.

      So amazing that they back that Nobel Prize award up with $1.4 million in prize money. Which was donated to 10 charities to fund education for others, by President Obama...BTW that is a goodly amount of cash for a cup of cold coffee.

I am sure the president is because he speaks of her fondly in his books. Which I have read. The comment I saw here the othe rday applies .Jerry you wouldn't know a socialist if you tripped over on at a carl marx picnic. Comment made by btchakir. Funny then funny now.

The President graduated magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, and he graduated from Columbia University, in 1983. According to reports he graduated in the top 10% of his class...which is unnecessary to report, since to say he graduated magna cum laude from Harvard with a law degree, and was the first black editor of the Harvard Law Review...just about says it all.

        Will you be able to protect your home, life, and liberty?

    Jerry it appears that it is YOUR mother who had the morals of an alley cat. Just listening to the filth coming from you tells me you were raised by someone morally deprived of humanity, religious faith and one who failed to teach her children how to live among decent people. Had your wanton mother taught you to live and act like you had an ounce of common sense and a hint of decency you wouldn't be trashing a dead woman who cannot defend herself against rotten bums like you. Judging from YOUR comments, it is apparent that you were reared in a disfunctional home with truly immoral parents and pity any children born of your seed as they have more than likely been infected with the filth of your soul.

    His mom, one of the typical little middle class marxists playing do gooder, while her parents footed the bills for the upkeep of her son. Then she hooked up with yet another foreigner. So obvious how she felt about her own culture that she made shure to exploit.

    Michelle wrote in college about the "white oppressor" whose goodwill she's exploited to her advantage.
    Obama's Marxist mom ran off with 2 different Muslims.
    His youth, adulthood, and families have all been anti-American and that he continues to surround himself with radical ex cons is proof of his intent to push us toward his version of collectivism

    His mother was a marxist, his father was a marxist and one of the first mentors hand picked by his grandparents for him was Frank Marshall Davis, a known communist on the FBI's list. One could be an aberration, two could be coincidence but we clearly have a trend here. Long after he leaves office and his records are all finally unsealed, the public will know what the guy REALLY believed.

      It is a fact that frank marshall davis was not only a marxist he was a real shady character, a sexual deviate of the first obamas wonderful mother consented to sent obama (as did his guardian grandparents) to be mentored by this scum bag....wonderful mother indeed.

      You libs don't believe this...well, just do a little research for a change. Look into obamas mothers indonesian experience and who funded it...the use of anthropologists by the CIA and etc... you will find this woman was indeed a real piece of work and that her life has been selectively represented and used by her son as a means to rewrite his own very very weird history.

    With no records that Ann Dunham ever married Obongo senior, the only thing we really know about little Barry (or whatever his name is) is who his mother was. And since Ann Dunham was known to frequent Negro bars in Hawaii, just about anybody could have been his father. No big deal, father's day is a time of mass confusion for most blacks anyway.

    Is it not just peachy this exhibit is coming out now as we go into the election year. What is really ironic is they are trying to portray obarry boy`s mother as such a wonderful person. There is no record of her ever marrying barrak sr. or being in a Hawaiian hospital to give any birth to anyone. Why? Because she was just another white trash whore playing the system. Show me the hospital record or marriage license, you can not! Here goes the MSM protecting obarry boy again what a joke!

How about educating yourself by reading: "The Great Republican Crack Up: How Angry, White, Southern Men Took Over the GOP and Made Our Government A War Zone"

        Poor thing! You obviously missed that part of history during the 50's and 60's, when southern democrats who disagreed with integration deserted the Democratic Party and moved their KKK philosophy to the Republican Party.

      @jean... I'm talking about America of today. For politicians like obama and holder to pull the race card today is a clear indication of manipulation i.e....dishonesty. As I have said, the democratic party has been hijacked by radical leftists, in effect destroyed by obama, pelosi, and others. The GOP is not center left and will take power shortly. BO's mother was one of those radicals who in her very small way helped push the left side of our politics to the radical left...and anthropologist educated with grants and yes foundations like the Ford Center and she associated with some real shady character one of which was obamas father who was a real piece of work and then the Sorento (sp) character who was an indonesian and eventually grew to appreciate American ideals and this irritated her to the point of divorcing him as she was apparently an American per her son and daughter in law.... sothere fore I would appreciate our next president as a real American who believes this country is great...because it is!

Not one of these racist haters would ever lend a hand to someone else, because in their little sick world of hatred, its ok to mistreat others.

      "The Harvard Law Review, generally considered the most prestigious in the country, elected the first black president in its 104-year history today. The job is considered the highest student position at Harvard Law School.

      The new president of the Review is Barack Obama, a 28-year-old graduate of Columbia University who spent four years heading a community development program for poor blacks on Chicago's South Side before enrolling in law school. His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii."

  27. dr of many things

    Stanley Ann Dunham got a rough start when her father named her after himself. She was a bohemian and free-thinking adolescent with a leftist (communist?) father who was unaccomplished, and a hard-working mother who was the first female major bank vice president in Hawai'i. She made a good living and the family was never poor. Stanley Ann graduated from high school a year ahead of her chronological peers and went off to the University of Hawai'ii at age 17. She was still that age when she was presumably pregnant by Barack Obama, Sr, although there are some doubts about paternity. Immediately after the birth of our president, she was enrolled at the Univerity of Washington, and she likely never lived with Obama, Sr., who was back in Honolulu and then off to Harvard before Stanley Ann ever returned to Hawai'i. She was an excellent student, but married yet another Muslim man and was off to Indoniesia, young Barry in tow. His nanny there was a cross-dressing homosexual who became a famous street entertainer in Jakarta. Stanley Ann fled back to her parents after four years, but soon thereafter abandoned her son to her parents for good. The grandfather found a mentor for Barry, black poet and labor activist, Frank Marshall Davis, who turned out to be a pervert as described in his autobiographical disclosure. Stanley Ann was also influenced by Davis, and may have been a model for nude photographs by him, which are available to those who search for net. She was an accomplished anthropologist, as judged by her dissertation, but never went the traditional route to academic or financial success in her discipline, hence, she had a series of moderately successful positions sponsored by foundations, as well as intervals of unemployment and poverty. She was probably an athiest, although vague "spiritualness" has described her. The content of Obama's literary masterpiece, Dreams From My father, is highly suspect and many inaccuracies and blatant ommissions have been found. It is improbable that Obama wrote the book by himself, since there is no history of such literary ability shown before or after the publication of Dreams. It may well have been ghost written by Obama's Chicago friend and associate, former merchant seaman Bill Ayers, accounting for its family inaccuracies and dozens of nautical references. Accordingly, descriptions of Obama's mother are more apt to fit a preconceived narrative than to accurately reflect her history as mother or scholar. Dr Stanley Ann Obama was a member of the early counter-culture who never was able to live a more traditional family or vocational life. Sadly, she participated little in the success of her abandoned son, despite his comments to the contrary. She simply wasn't around enough to be the kind of inspiration or model most children receive from involved parents. She died way too young from cancer, never to experience the pride and joy of producing a president.

    @dr. of many things, master of none.

    Stanley Armour Dunham (Stanley Ann's father) was a Sergeant in the U. S. Army during WWII and is buried at The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl National Cemetery) with 34,000 veterans, of WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.
    On a side note, Stanley Dunham was also related in one way or another to six U.S. Presidents.....James Madison, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush and George Bush, and he could trace his roots to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Robert Woolfley....Barack Obama's great-great-great grandfather served in Company A, 145th Ohio Infantry during the Civil War.

    And the nude picture you mention as being of Ann Dunham has been debunked by snopes and is actually a photograph of a 1950's pin-up model named Marcy Moore.

    So you get on here with your made up garbage and expect people to buy it...get a life and move on....lies won't work.
