#2 I think he was playing up his Kenya roots for 'cred. Now that he needs to downplay that it is rearing its head like an ugly zit.

Ha-Ha, dumbass. Ha-Ha.

#4 Its like saying the Village People are 1/6 Cherokee, much more interesting than, say, fatherless mixed race son of hipster kansas girl.

#8 They key talking point here is: Fundamental dishonesty, and willingness to lie and use deciet about something as basic as where he was born. He claimed Kenya then, claims Hawaii now. One way or another he is lying about a fundamental part of who he is - and that uncovers even more about who he really is: a manipulative man who will do and say anything to get what he wants, be it money or power. Any Obama supporter MUST be confronted with this established fact: Obama lied about something as fundamental as his birth. Why do you trust him after seeing this, and his horrible performance in office?

Exactly, Old Spook.

And it shouldn't take old spook training to see it either.

An important part of any con game is marks who *want* to believe. Even after the con has been exposed, the best marks still believe.
