Rush speculates that they both lied about their backgrounds (him = Kenyan Born and her = Cherokee heritage) to make themselves look more liberally appealing,"exotic" and to possibly take advantage of Affirmative Action benefits. What do you think? If true, should either of these people be holding office? If true, Is this an impeachable offense or just a sign of poor character?


Rush: Obama Made Past More Exotic Just Like Elizabeth Warren

So you are saying with out a doubt, Obama did not lie about any of this and it was a "simple" act of a "typo"?

Obama is a politician in every sense of the word. He was admitted to lying to get ahead. His own pal Wright said this. So why do you drones find it so hard to believe that Obama would lie? You act like we are proposing that pigs can fly.

If all you can do is be a drone, and dare not question things because....its questioning Obama, why even breathe on your own. Have someone else do it for you.

He doesn't.

His literary agency had a pamphlet that he most likely never saw in which they included a bunch of mini-bios of their clients.

His was not the only one to contain mistakes.

Of course I am. The woman responsible has already admitted that the mistake was entirely hers.

Assuming I know what you were actually trying to say there... no. He hasn't.

"His own pal Wright" said what? And need I really point out that "his own pal Wright" is not him?

I have no problem whatsoever believing that Obama can lie. In fact I believe that all our politicians must lie because we demand it of them. We resolutely refuse to elect anybody who will not promise the impossible, so even the very best politicians on the planet must lie if they want any chance of getting elected and doing good.

But what I also know is that this is not an example of Obama lying. This is not even an example of Obama spinning. It is an example of somebody else getting a detail wrong in something they wrote about Obama back when he was essentially an unknown college student.

Only a complete blithering idiot would look at the details of what happened here and blink an eyelid. Of course... among the Obama haters there is simply no shortage of blithering idiots.
