I always look at that use of name as an indication that the writer thinks he may have enrolled at Occidental with the name Barry Soetoro. What proof is there that this didn't happen? It is all sealed up for some reason and until he lets that info out he enrolled there under that name to gain scholarship money that Indonesia provided for its citizens. Can you prove that I am wrong? If so, what papers are available for that proof? His books?

Well, now, the author did forget that one. He has run that mouth a lot before and after the election.

Can anyone deny that this is a true statement (from the CFP linked article) and actually back up any claim that it is untrue?

"Obama’s only real accomplishment is that he took hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money, and directed them to his donors on Wall Street, in the unions and the insurance industry."
One of THEM took you up immediately but he didn't read the article so he has no idea what all was said.

I'm sure you won't accept anything from Snopes as proof but here it is anyway on how the erroneous Barrry Soetoro/Occidental College thing got started that you are repeating.

Is this an indication that you didn't read the article? I think it is, but I am wrong now and then.

Seems to me Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites who only complain about spending when it suits them politically!
I see that you haven't learned to think in Obamaese. You heavy printed billion twice when in truth you meant trillion. Would that you were right, says your grandchildren.

You are very right but didn't you fail to look at what I said he hadn't done? Come on and admit that you failed to read that article because you didn't want to take a chance of seeing something you didn't want to know about.
