"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

American 'Black' President finds White Irish Roots in time for the Campaign

In 2008, we were called racist for having the audacity to say that he was 50% white. Some blacks were threatened by his supporters for pointing out his Mother was white. His being half white was a non-starter then but fast forward to the 2012 campaign and now Obama is finding his white Irish roots for photo ops for the campaign. All the while his wife does not look happy in the video at the Pub.

Can we safely say that we are no longer racist when we criticize Obama as we no longer have the first black President as now he is has found his Irish roots like so many of our presidents? This is almost too ludicrous to write after years of people being called 'racist' but this is the latest chapter in the leopard changing his spots to get elected. Is he now going to want it both ways with 'no criticism allowed' from whites or blacks because he is both which we knew all along. Wonder how all this 'Irish lovefest' is sitting with the people of South Chicago?

Don't forget in July 2009 when Obama said Cambridge, Mass., police "acted stupidly" in arresting black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. He wrongly assumed without getting the facts that a white policeman was wrong and this was a typical white cop arrests black man stereotype.

If Obama thinks the American people are as dumb as the media, he has a wake-up call coming. This is also the candidate that talked about his grandparents when he was a teenager over some black negative comments after his grandmother had to walk through some black thugs. Then he threw his grandmother who raised him under the bus as a racist in the 2008 campaign. We have always said he will say and do anything to get elected and this trip to Ireland proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

We could care less if he was black, purple or whatever, but the number of times any criticism of Obama is met with racism calls is astounding. If he thinks finding his white roots is going to erase away all of that, he is not living in reality.

This trip on the taxpayers nickle is all for show for his campaign and as someone with British roots including Irish, it is beyong disgusting at how the media is treating this. Their memories are short, they are flat out clueless or are intentionally disregarding all the racist calls Obama and his staff made during 2008 and beyond.  We believe it was the latter as they are the same reporters that didn't blink an eye when Obama called us 'racist' for daring to disagree with him.  Is Obama going to stop calling us racist now he has found his 'white Irish roots?'  What part of Obama being half white has not been evident all along?

If he thinks going to Great Britain is going to erase the stain of his dissing our closest ally for several years, he needs another dose of realilty. Obama is the same person who has shown dislike of Great Britain by his comments starting with sending back the Churchill bust at the beginning of his term in office, but he is now playing up to them? What's he afraid of that they might release the real information on him since he was a British citizen when he was born because of his Father?

Obama says Irish roots could have helped early in career
May 24, 2011 05:07AM

President Obama, in Ireland on Monday, after a visit to his maternal grandfather’s grandfather’s town, praised Chicago’s Irish and said it would have been “handy” earlier in his political career to have known about his Irish roots.

In a Dublin speech, Obama played up his Irish heritage — and said he would have probably had a better spot in Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day parade if he could have claimed Irish ancestory and marched as O’Bama. Chicago’s Irish political clans — Daley, Hynes and Madigan — were a powerful political force when Obama came on the political scene.

Obama only confirmed his Irish roots during his run for president.

“Until recently, I could not unequivocally claim that I was one of those Irish-Americans.”

He thanked the genealogists who traced his family tree.

“Now, I do wish somebody had provided me all this evidence earlier, because it would have come in handy back when I was first running in my hometown of Chicago because Chicago is the Irish capital of the Midwest, a city where it was once said you could stand on 79th Street and hear the brogue of every county in Ireland.

“So naturally a politician like me craved a (spot) in the St. Patrick’s Day parade. The problem was, not many people knew me or could even pronounce my name. I told them it was a Gaelic name; they didn’t believe me.

“So one year a few volunteers and I did make it into the parade, but we were literally the last marchers. After two hours, finally it was our turn. And while we rode the route and we smiled and we waved, the city workers were right behind us cleaning up the garbage.”
