Wrong. In fact Baskin Robins on South King Street, Honolulu HI (across from Washington Intermediate School) have proclaimed loudly that he was one of their employees.

Don't confuse us with the truth; it's much more fun to believe the lies and slander.

Just one or two months ago, conservatives on this forum were arguing that an annual income of less that 250,000 meant that you were poor...

I know, I know. We all twist and turn things so they fit our personal agenda. Real nice.

I grew up with struggling parents, but personally, I wasn't "struggling'. My parents provided me with all of the toys and nicknacks I wanted and then some. It was only later did I know that they saved, scrimped and shaved off of their own personal expenses to do so.

I would say I was poor growing up, but I didn't feel as if I was poor. And yes, I went to private school as well.

Instead of referring to some nebulous "liberals" and "theys" why don't you quote an individual so we can have a real discussion about what somebody actually said?

Wrong. In fact Baskin Robins (http://www.baskinrobbins.com/about/funfacts.aspx - broken link) on South King Street, Honolulu HI (across from Washington Intermediate School) have proclaimed loudly that he was one of their employees. I frequented this little Ice Cream store often while growing up in Hawaii (though long after Obama was an employee)

Flat out lies will get you nowhere.
You need to learn a little more about your idol. I'm not lying. The facts are the facts. You're ignoring them. I get it - someone has to keep up the charade that Obama is "one of us".

It's all part of his conjob! His grandfather had a job and was in the same house as his grandmother that raised, him, AND what the MSM would not tell you is that his grandmother made history in Hawaii...dig this....she became the First, Female Vice President of a BANK, in that state.

Poor? No, he has to lie to get where he gets, and shame on so many for still believing his lies. Isn't it mostly those wanting freebies, those still caught up in the romance of him being our first black president, and Union types, that do?!

An MSNBC analyst says that references to Obama as 'privileged' are a 'dog whistle' for racists. In other words if you call Obama privileged, now you're a racist.

Can't make this stuff up.....
