Character matters. Good character is built on the virtues such as honesty, prudence, courage, and fortitude among others. Virtues such as honesty should be considered by every voter to be essentials in a candidate.
What mostly disturbs me about this news is that those in our government charged with enforcing our constitution, especially those portions about who is and who is not eligible to run for the presidency of the United States, did NOTHING to find out the truth and enforce our constitutional laws BEFORE the election in 2008 and since then still nothing. Clearly they have failed in the duty they swore to fulfill.
Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.
The most disturbing part of this bio used by our sitting president’s own literary agent is that either one of two things must be true:
1. Barack Obama was lying about being born in Hawaii, and is not eligible to be president and should never have been permitted to run.
2. Barack Obama was lying about being born in Kenya to fund his education and career and isn’t this fraud a felony?
BOTH cannot be true. ONE must be a lie. Which is the lie, Hawaii or Kenya? I don’t know but I think that no matter which one is the lie and which one is true that this man is not presidential material and should never have been able to get so many votes.
Dear Lord, please send us a strong, honest, virtuous person to be our president and give us the wisdom to recognize and vote that person into office. Amen.
