BFF with Farrakhan?

Two dozen members of the Black Caucus met with Nation of Islam leader, Farrakhan in 2005. Obama was a part of this group. That’s hardly a friendship.

Obama made clear he was saddened by some of Wright’s remarks and resigned from his church. Again, nothing suggests there is a friendship.

Most of the wealthiest women in the US are descendants or widows or former spouses of wealthy men.

Oprah came from poverty and did not marry into wealth.

Treasury made a few $ on loans to banks and insurance.

Not so much on stimulus given to states.

20 years later? PLEASE tell me you don't actually believe that BS. Obama got married in Rev Wright's church. Both of his daughters were baptized in Rev Wright's church.

Mom, if you mean friendship between Obama and Wright.....

Obama was a member of his church..and listened to Wright's sermons for 16 years...

...Wright officiated at Barack and Michelle Obama's wedding even, as well as at their children's baptisms

Obama's book...The Audacity of Hope...was titled from one of Wright's sermons... Audacity to Hope

..and Obama even scheduled Wright to give the public invocation before Obama's presidential announcement

Obama and Wright had been friends since the late '80's

Mom should already know all of that, given the fact that she lives in the Chicago area.

This is in the wrong forum. Isn't Obama retired? I think the retirement or Real estate forum would be more appropriate.

It has to do with the Anthropogenic Climate Change hoax. As such, it's a controversy.

This sounds like a great place for the next G-7.

Won't it be underwater according to the ACC (Anthropogenic Climate Change) alarmists?
