Yeah, I've noticed no one has wanted to mention that. I spotted it when he was first elected, but dismissed it because it's not as if he asked to be a full-sized preemie. Not his bad.


And Clinton's dad died before his birth and his marriage to his mom is something of a mystery. Do you see a pattern?

Obama on abortion:

“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.”

So is he his mother's punishment?

And Clinton's dad died before his birth and his marriage to his mom is something of a mystery. Do you see a pattern?

Well, I was thinking about that pattern, but couldn't rally myself to find as link to the Clinton stuff.


Love child.


"So is he his mother's punishment?"

Or your's.


I now Florence King refers to it in some detail.

Here's a small reference with a lot of missing detail by someone else:
"Clinton's own family background certainly is part of it: the traveling salesman father who apparently was not fastidious in his adherence to his marriage vows; the putative half-brother who apparently was fathered by Bill's wayward dad; the widowed mom who scuffled to raise her two boys and survive a relationship with an alcoholic second husband; the drug-addict younger brother who somehow pulled through, and the boy Bill himself, bright, charming, determined to succeed in the world but never, it seems, blessed with a male role model worthy of the name. It could be the story of any number of black people, any number of black families."



"It was there that shemet Bill Blythe, who was known as W.J. (for William Jefferson) by his family in Texas.Blythe went by other names - he could not be associated with one name or one birth date.His family claimed he was born on February 27, 1918 but his military records showed hisbirth date as February 21, 1917. No real reasons were given for the different dates, but itwas insignificant to Virginia. Of their meeting, she said it was love at first sight - andforgot about an old boyfriend from Hope whose ring she had worn for four years.They were married on September 3, 1943 -- less than two months after they met and fiveweeks before Blythe was shipped overseas by the Army. Virginia knew little aboutBlythe's controversial past, including three marriage licenses and three divorces. Blythe, atechnician, was stationed in Egypt and Italy repairing engines and heavy equipment. Hewas a long way from any fighting. During this time, Virginia Kelley graduated fromnursing school and returned to Hope to live with her parents, becoming a nurse.In December 1945 Blythe was honorably discharged from the Army. He had no plans ofliving in Hope, Arkansas and had a job waiting for him in Chicago selling heavyequipment. In her recollections, Virginia said she reunited with Blythe in November buthis military records indicated he did not arrive home from Italy until December 1 - and wasdischarged on December 7. "This is inconsequential except for one thing: the timing of theconception of Clinton ...nine months before Clinton was born (August 19, 1946), Blythewas still in Italy. Virginia's answer was that Clinton was born a month early." (Source:First in His Class)"

Now, I know nothing of this publisher, but this is the way I recall the story, too.


Clarice, it says the source is "First in His Class" which is the entirely respectable David Maraniss biography. I have the book so I skimmed that section - this excerpt looks to be a condensation of sorts, but nothing appears to be factually different from the Maraniss account.

Boy, the Blythe apple did not fall far from the tree, despite the fact that Clinton never knew his natural father. Old W. J. Blythe was quite the ladies' man, according to Maraniss.

Yes, but were either of them born in the wagon of a traveling show? Did their mothers have to dance for the money they'd throw? These are vitally important questions about their character development.


A href = http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1729524-3,00.html>TIME mag is more blunt about it:

On Feb. 2, 1961, several months after they met, Obama's parents got married in Maui, according to divorce records. It was a Thursday. At that point, Ann was three months pregnant with Barack Obama II. Friends did not learn of the wedding until afterward. "Nobody was invited," says Abercrombie. The motivations behind the marriage remain a mystery, even to Obama. "I never probed my mother about the details. Did they decide to get married because she was already pregnant? Or did he propose to her in the traditional, formal way?" Obama wonders. "I suppose, had she not passed away, I would have asked more."

Yeah, I've thought about the abortion angle. You know, she may well have made him feel a bit like a burden. My heart actually melts a bit for little boy Obama.


OK, I'll say it. The story makes a better
pro-choice argument!


I forgot the :)


"The motivations behind the marriage remain a mystery, even to Obama"

ROFLMAO. In 1961.

Yes, yes, yes...He was born out of wedlock. Fine.

What's really newsworthy, in my mind, was the visit He received as a young child from Kim Jong Il, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, and Yasser Arafat. Bearing gold, frankincense and uranium.

You don't hear about that very often.


Actually Obama is old enough to have had gifts from,Mao,Pol Pot and Che Guevara.None of your Johnnie come latelys for Barry,he probably got the gospel first hand.

hit and run

Friends did not learn of the wedding until afterward. "Nobody was invited," says Abercrombie. The motivations behind the marriage remain a mystery, even to Obama.

Don't let the distractions distract you! There is only one important issue here.

Where was Fitch?

You know, those guys behind Obama at speeches who run that store where gay people shop.


It's another cult. Clinton's set up was pretty cool. All the were the same. Alcoholics. Then there was the born out of wedlock or adopted. Abortion, but didn't. And the biggie for Bill, abused kid.

They went for Bill for this right from the beginning. I guess the SS figured this around 92 and everyone was in trouble for the overseas assignments, but, hey, who put the teams together? It's all psychiatry in the end.

These cult members all get allot of money and neat things like Presidents, etc.

Let's make this shit. Yes, that says shit,not crap. I'm gonna think this is Satan, not lucifer, but I may be wrong about ending all things in existence.


I wonder if Larry, Curly and Moe brought gifts.

Soylent Red


The OLD TIME Religion, you might say.


Larry, Curly and Moe can't be killed. Your also not supposed to bother world leaders. Larry, Curly and Moe also might be cult members who need to be freed.

Ending all things in existence is the correct answer. Clinton wouldn't and Obama isn't adult enough. Lucifer won't either. Satan will and it's easy.

What is a psychiatrist? They know lucifer and aren't lawyers. Maybe we can use Satan's device to send them back in time and figure out who made the deal to see, dream.

Obsidian Wings has some ip thing that spams your ip. You can't use an anonymous ip either, it's spammed too.

Actually, Obama's parents were "married", not married, since his father was already married. Hawaii, unlike some Muslim countries, did not allow polygamy back then. (And still doesn't, though the Hawaii courts may change that some time in the future.)

That Barack Obama, Jr. was illegitimate says nothing about him, but does say something about Barack Obama, Sr. And it makes it even more puzzling that junior seems to worship senior's memory.

Rick Ballard

"And it makes it even more puzzling that junior seems to worship senior's memory."


IMO - he was too young to understand and internalize being abandoned by his father - hence the romanticization. He was old enough to recognize his mother's abandonment and TWP Granny had a full plate.

He comes by "cut n' run" through training - something to remember in any assessment made of his actions.


The UN says circumcision will stop aids. Females won't talk enough. If they abstained that might be the answer; but these poor, uneducated people actually think they're blessing the world with the existence of their breeding result.


I do not know how to use the Cheap metin2 yang ; my friend tells me how to use.
