Re: “Who will endorse Hillary tomorrow? Take a wild guess.

OBAMA TRIVIA ============ Here are some less known facts about the brilliant orator and presidential hopeful: - His first name Barak is a specific Arabic first name and his middle name Hussein is a specific Muslim name - he used alcohol, marijuana, and cocaine during his teenage years to "push questions of who I was, out of my mind" - according to his own claims both parents were declared atheists - Despite the fat that he claims that he has never been raised as a Muslim, in the various schools he attended in Jakarta, Indonesia, he was registered as a Muslim; also, according to his sister Maya Soetoro, "the family did not attend the mosque for regular worship, but for communal events" - his father was a polygamist, as he was already married with a child, in Kenya, when he married Barak Jr.'s mother: Ann Dunham; before divorcing her, he married a 3rd woman, Ruth, while studying in Boston, MA - his father's 3rd wife, Ruth, finally left him after he repeatedly flew into whisky-fuelled rages, beating her brutally - four years after his father's death, Obama Jr. traveled to his father's ancestral Kenyan village. There he learned the full story of his father's life and met some of his relatives - after his father, he has 6 step-brothers and a step-sister - after his own told recollections, he was tortured by fellow pupils - who let out monkey hoots - and turned into a disenchanted teenage rebel, experimenting with cocaine, marijuana and alcohol However a former classmate, Alan Lum, radically contradicts Barak's claim: "Hawaii is such a melting pot that it didn't occur to me when we were growing up that he might have problems about being one of the few African-Americans at the school. Us kids didn't see color. He was easy-going and well-liked." - While at Columbia University, his book claims, "no matter how many times the administration tried to paint them over, the walls remained scratched with blunt correspondence (about) niggers." But one of his classmates, Joe Zwicker, 45, now a lawyer in Boston, said: "That surprises me. Columbia was a pretty tolerant place. There were African American students in my classes and I never saw any evidence of racism at all." - Why would a devoted Christian from Chicago name his daughters: Malia and Sasha ? - According to Chicago Sun of Feb 13, 08, a volunteer setting up an Obama office in Texas had a Cuban flag with a picture of Che Guevara tacked up in her office - the Italian translation of the book "Audacity of Hope" was published with an introduction by Walter Vetroni, a former leader of the Italian Communist party - One of Obama's good friend, campaign contributor and advisor is Tony Rezko, an Arab American, born in Syria, who is currently facing federal charges of attempted extortion, money laundering, and fraud; Obama had actually received nearly three times more campaign cash from Rezko and his associates than he has publicly acknowledged - Obama's spiritual leader and counselor is Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who said in the newly disclosed video that the 9/11 attacks were brought on by US "terrorism." - One of Obama's fervent supporter is boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, who was in fact several times convicted for violence; - Barak has close association with the domestic terrorist organization members William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as with Luis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam seniority - he repeatedly ducked controversial stands in an apparent attempt to make it easier to be elected to higher office. For example, as a state senator in Illinois, he voted "present" rather than "aye" or "nay" nearly an astounding 130 times - he is endorsed by former Black Panther Charles Barron, and by Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the "Nation of Islam" - Obama is the most liberal of all 100 senators who has absolutely no military, executive or foreign policy experience
