White House Acknowledges Obama Lived With Uncle After Previously Denying They'd Met

“Don't be naive. No member of the white house press office would make any representation about a member of the Presidents family without clearing it with the President first.”

“Do you really believe the press office would make that denial without asking the President? My guess is the " research" went something like this: Press office: "Mr. President there is a flap brewing about your Uncle Omar which could be a problem during your re-election campaign. Should we ask you if you have ever met him? The Prez: "Hmmm.....maybe you shouldn't ask me that." So they didn't....... Plausible deniability.”

“They wouldn't bother the President with such a question in the first place.”

“"a White House official said the press office had not fully researched the relationship between the president and his uncle"

So...here is how that "research" should have gone....."Uh...Mr. President, have you eve met your uncle Omar Obama?" End of research. Strange that the White House press office didn't think of that....and convenient considering that this was during the re-election campaign.”

“Maybe so but it could be time for a new party......call it middle of the road party. No extremists from either side allowed. Both the Democratic and Republican parties are broken beyond repair. We need to restore respect to the political process, do away with the revenge tactics and make this country whole again. All 535 of the current crop of lawmakers would do well to spend a little time contemplating the Preamble to the Constitutiion. If they need help understanding it I recommend Mortimer Adler's book.”

“20% won't get through, another 20% will get through but won't sign up for anything and about 15% will sign up for medcaid through the state programs. That will leave about 45% to pay for the whole thing....yep! that sounds about right.”

“They said it would be easy.
They said it would be cheaper.
They said you could keep your current plans.
But....
The site doesn't work.
Premiums are 41% higher (per Forbes) than current prices.
Deductibles are 2 or 3 times higher.
Insurance companies are pulling out of some states all together and canceling policies by the millions in others.
They better do more than hope for change...they better pray for divine intervention because they still don't know what's in this thing other than it is totally FUBAR.”

“Yes you are right,but. Why did we not go were the enemy was? Afghanistan was the training ground of the enemy. The Americans lost in Iraq was unnecessary. It was the egos of those in charge. We as a nation were lied to. We sent young men and women to die for a lie. I believe that was one of the sadist days in our history. I thank every service man and women I see in uniform. Please do the same. These are the bravest of Americans.”

“No need to apologize to me. My experience wasn't all that bad...a few nasty comments walking through the airport is all I remember but then, as I said, we were pretty wasted by the time we hit the runway. Plus I got a big kiss from one of the stewardesses as we deplaned. She was the first big love of my life and the whole thing lasted just 15 seconds. Others had worse experiences.”

“Well I have to say AA has always treated returning Vets well. I was on an AA flight coming back from first tour in VN in 1970. There were about 5 of us and the stewardesses moved us to the back of the plane, which was otherwise pretty empty. They kept us well supplied with Mateus the entire flight. In retrospect that was probably not such a good idea because we were pretty hammered by the time we landed, but we sure appreciated the wine and the company at the time.”

“I apologize to you sir, for the treatment that most returning VN vets received on their homecoming. I hated the war as many did, but could never understand the harassment of the soldiers, especially since many of them were drafted. They put their lives on the line and we at home should have been supported or at the very least, been civil.”

“Negativity of almost every generation toward the opinions of their immediate predecessors. The quote actually has it's roots in greek philosophy; it has a great deal of validity and was stated in various ways in writings over 2000 years ago. The disparity of ideology and values between the generations creates the changes in society. For the most part the result is good. Believe it or not most people do gain a bit of wisdom with age and experience.”
