    When a person is a baby he/she can’t demand where he/she is born.
    When a person is a youngster he/she can’t demand how he/she is raised (by whom) or where he/she is sent to school.
    BUT ADULTS can choose their own standards of life and their own actions.
    So, Obama choose to waste YEARS doing drugs and ignoring educators.
    All the while he was given some of the finest opportunities to get a good education.
    His pricey prep school in Hawaii, his Affirmative Action admissions to Harvard, even his chance to get a decent tutor there.
    But he wasted all that.
    He smoked away his HS years, he was un-memorable in college, he did nothing as editor of the Harvard Review, he picked Michelle as his tutor just to get in her pants.

    Obama has the liberal romanticism regarding Islam that most liberals who simply see them from a distance can afford to have, but Obama is in a position to make his romantic fantasy the basis for national public policy!

    Sen. Cotton had all his illusions about Islam (if he had any) fall away in the heat of combat.
    He has worked on a 6th generation family farm, cattle farm, in ARK even after Harvard and military service. He had also worked at a leading global strategic management consulting firm founded to serve senior management on problems important to them and their enterprises. Apparently he could help big businesses navigate the red tape of many gov’ts so as to succeed.

    On just those areas where the two men COULD choose their ways, Sen. Cotton wins.

    Sen Cotton has also demonstrated in critical situations that he can lead. Obama has yet to prove that! Community organizers are not leaders. Military officers are!

    Sen Cotton seems to have hit a nerve. The twitching of the liberals has exceeded all expectations. I’m surprised there is no recall initiative in his home state.
    The guy calls it as he sees it. And he has apparently read the Constitution, and comprehends our system of government.
    Treason? To insist that the Constitution be followed? Negotiating with the enemy? Well, only if they ARE enemies, and OBozo thinks of them as close friends. Sending a letter to Iran? Well, actually, he did no such thing. His “to the leaders of Iran” was roughly like the Federalist “to the citizens of New York”. The letter was posted on his own Senate website.
    The left is out to savage Sen Cotton, and they will fail. All they can do is dream up lies. And then repeat them, over and over again.
    It is my hope that the citizens of this nation are getting sick of the lies.
    The latest lie is that we must have universal voting, like Saddam Hussein had in Iraq. Remember–100% of the people voted for him. Many had to be coaxed at gunpoint, and there was only one vote: “yes”. I suppose that is what OBambi has in mind.

    Funny….”provide a link….”
    Tom Cotton was only a Junior in High School when colleges and universities were begging for him to pick their school.
    Then, when his college-board scores came in, there was even more interest in him.
    Later when he went to Harvard for 4 year college he gravitated toward these professors: Steven Ozment, Peter Berkowitz, Stephen Rosen, and Harvey Mansfield.
    His grades improved to where he graduated with highest honors.
    He was a regular contributor to the liberal Harvard Crimson even though he leaned conservative.
    After his law degree he clerked for a judge on the Fifth Circuit. Why? He had student loans to pay off.
    Obama only paid off his student loans in 2004!

    Yeah, I know about the bronze star. I was curious about the circumstances of the award as I don’t recall ever reading what they were.

    Don’t get me wrong. I would never discredit another veteran’s decorations and I’m certainly not doing so here, but to my mind the descriptor “war hero” suggests a selfless act of heroism rather than meritorious achievement—the difference, perhaps, between a bronze star, and a bronze star with a V device or a silver star.

    @Redteam:

    It wouldn’t be a problem to supply links for all of that. Links to the President’s official birth certificate, and also his long-form birth certificate, confirmations from the state of Hawaii, a transcript of the lawsuit when a judge ruled that so-called experts who alleged the birth certificates were forged did not provide probative evidence, recollections of former students, the President’s selective service card, confirmations from military personnel that they indeed have a selective service card on file — all of that is easily retrieved and has been discussed before.

    This is the first I’m hearing that the general public can see Tom Cotton’s school records. I’m sure Dr. John can provide a link,. right Dr. John?

    But wait; didn’t you liberal/progressive/Marxist/Leninist Democrats nominate a “war hero” in John Kerry? A piece of rice in the ass merited John Kerry a Purple Heart. Remember his “Reporting for duty” opening at the DNC convention when he was nominated?

    Seems you have different standards for “war heroes” depending on their political affiliation.

    Something that nobody seems to have considered about obama’s birth certificate: He has the only SCANNED copy of a birth certificate. Why would Hawaii have someone take the time to find the book that the certificate is in, then carry it to a scanner, and scan it into a computer, and send it in PDF form? The experts were surprised that it was in the PDF format.

    At that time, EVERY STATE scanned the birth certificates onto rolls called microfiche. Why didn’t Hawaii make obama’s from the microfiche? Why won’t Hawaii let Sheriff Joe see the microfiche copy? Could it be that THERE IS NO MICROFICHE film copy?

    I challenge anyone to show me a SCANNED copy of ANYBODY ELSE’S birth certificate.

    @retire05: Good reply! JK was vetted by the Swift Boat vets. His hero status failed to hold up! I do not think any one considered Tom Cotton a hero, only someone who demonstrated he could lead. Only that he has more experience leading than Obama. He also leads from the front, not the gulf course.

    @Randy: Randy and Another Vet— What do you guys think of Jim Webb–Navy Cross recipient and praised by Ronald Reagan.
    I’m hopeful he takes on HRC—He’s recently been in S.C and Iowa and says he’ll decide in next 90 days.
    Who do you think will get the Repub. nod?

    @jerseyflash: In the case of ‘someone showing any record of Obama” before he got elected is zero. There is/are absolutely no records of anything he has ever done available, so we don’t have to worry about anyone accepting the challenge.

    @Nanny G: I don’t believe Obama paid off any student loans 8 years ago. I think it is a requirement to be a student to get a student loan, and I don’t think anyone can prove he was ever a ‘student’.

    You’re kidding, right? There is no real Obama birth certificate available on line anywhere. We are absolutely sure his Selective Service card is not real. No Social Security number of his own.

    recollections of former students

    what does that mean? there is not one link to anyone ever seeing Obama inside a class room. (oh sure he was seen playing frisbee or something, but it wasn’t in a classroom. )

    all of that is easily retrieved

    @retire05:As you said:” John Lurch Kerry was no war hero.” Receiving a purple heart has nothing to do with ‘heroic’ action. There are separate awards for heroism. the Bronze Star is

    to any person who, while serving in any capacity in or with the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, or Coast Guard of the United States, after 6 December 1941, distinguishes, or has distinguished, herself or himself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service, not involving participation in aerial flight—

    (a) while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States;
    (b) while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force; or
    (c) while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.

    just regular size. LSU doesn’t play well against teams with good free throw defenses. Reagan wasn’t a ” two divorced Presidents” If Webb won, maybe we should call him Sheik, with his former harem.

    Remember the thread from a few years ago when he said the SEALs who criticized Obama weren’t real SEALs? I guess that means the rest of us who served and criticize Obama weren’t real Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, or Airmen.

    @rich wheeler: I wouldn’t vote for him because I disagree with him on too many positions. However, in the unlikely event he were to be elected President, I wouldn’t have an issue with it. Unlike the current occupant, I have zero doubts about his commitment to the country. He’s also more of smorgasbord as to where he stands. He’s left on some issues. Right on a couple. And libertarian on others. Obviously the latter two appeal to me but not the former. As I told you before, he won’t make it past the primaries because your party has been dragged way too far to the left by its current leadership and that’s where its base lies. Unlike the Republicans which have an establishment wing (the so called RHINO’s), a conservative wing (Tea Party wing), and a Libertarian wing (the Pauls), the dems have a left wing and that’s about it. The Blue Dogs which helped them regain control of Congress in 2006 are all but extinct save for a few like Joe Manchin.

    What is the usual occupation of a Madam? just curious. I don’t believe the Hill will be the nominee. I’m sure the Dims are seaching for another Muslim to run. remember back in 04 when no one had ever heard of Obama and the Hill was a shoo in? Well, she’s still that kind of ‘shoo in’. Enough crooks in politics can do wonders.

    Look at obama’s birth certificate, and decide for yourself if it is real or fake.

    https:[email protected]/12178804083/

    In 2009, Hawaii put in place action to destroy paper birth certificates. Why?

    http://www.wnd.com/2009/07/105365/

    Why won’t obama and Hawaii let Sheriff Joe Arpaio see the microphish image of obama’s birth certificate? It should be AN EXACT IMAGE of it, and obama has released what he says is his long form birth certificate. They should be EXACTLY THE SAME.

    Usually, the judges ruled that the one making the charges didn’t have legal standing to go forward with the trial.

    Fox News must have scrubbed the story, because I can’t find it with an Internet search. If anybody has the link, please let me know. Fox News interviewed 400 Columbia University students, and NONE OF THEM REMEMBER HIM, OR EVEN HEARD OF HIM UNTILL AFTER HE WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT.

    One thing for sure, he won’t respond with the truth. If he responds it’ll only be with a liberal verified (such as Snopes) lie about Obama. Don’t expect anything new, if they had anything we would’ve heard long, long ago.

    That is why I added the last paragraph. I don’t want to go through the same stuff again, and yet Gary was the one who brought up the old stuff that the liberals wish we would quit talking about.

    If everything would be reversed, and the republicans had the offices that the democrats have, and the democrats have the offices the republicans have, and everything else would be EXACTLY the same, I would still be trying to inform the public that we have a republican muslim illegal terrorist in the white house who was sent here to destroy the USA. The liberals stand by their party no matter what. I hope they will never find out what all of the free stuff they keep voting for will could them.
