When I wrote the many articles about Obama I was cautiously optimistic.  I felt that the Constitution should be changed even so that we don’t get a “questionable” candidate in terms of who they are and who the parents are.  In other words: both parents should be born and raised in the USA.  That way we are not getting illegal aliens in the WH. He was to be sure the lesser of two evils. I never felt that he was either black or that he was American in the sense that he was denied the essential black experience here.

Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” 

The booklet, which was distributed to “business colleagues” in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel. 

It also promotes Obama’s anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White–which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.

Facebook price offering $38/share

those who bought early paid about that much or maybe a little less.  They were thinking that the price would be closer to 100 out of the gate.  I saw 48 being bout fair sans hype.  That would not be a bad price if you can get it.

My advice set a limit order and don’t pay over 50-55 then wait if you dont’ get a bite wait a few months down the road until the hype dust settles.
