Senator Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee, is to fly to Britain next month as part of an ambitious foreign trip that will also take him to war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as to France and Germany.IT'S ABOUT TIME HE WENT TO IRAQ!
Only skeleton details of Mr Obama's trip have been agreed but an announcement of an outline programme is expected over the weekend.
"You will be hearing something very soon," a senior Obama aide told The Telegraph.
... Mr Obama, 46, has not been to Iraq since 2004, a fact that his opponent John McCain, 71, the presumptive Republican nominee and a regular visitor to Baghdad, points out frequently. ...
Mr Obama has visited Downing Street once briefly during a Congressional trip.
On a previous trip to Britain in 1996, he was a guest at the wedding of his half-sister Auma, who has since moved back to Kenya, in Bracknell and went his brother-in-law's stag night in Wokingham.
BTW: DID YOU CATCH THAT BIT ABOUT HIS HALF-SISTER?
HOW COULD THAT BE!?
OH YEAH: HIS FATHER WAS EITHER A POLYGAMIST OR A BIGAMIST OR... WHATEVER. NYMAG:
Due mostly to his father, who had children by four women, Obama has seven living half-siblings (one he had never met died in 1984). He’s tight with two of them. The first is Maya Soetoro-Ng, his younger half-sister, the child of Obama’s mother and Lolo Soetoro, her Indonesian second husband. Maya stayed with Obama’s mother after she divorced Lolo, and she has recently taken time off from teaching high school in Honolulu to make appearances at her brother’s campaign stops. The second, Auma Obama, is Obama’s older half-sister, the child of Barack Sr. and his first wife in Kenya.I'M GONNA TAKE A LOT OF HEAT FOR THIS BUT I'M GONNA PUT IT OUT THERE:
IS THIS THE KIND OF FAMILY WE WANT IN THE WHITE HOUSE? WITH NON-JUDEO-CHRISTIAN HALF-BROTHERS AN HALF SISTERS ALL OVER THE FREAKIN' THIRD WORLD!?!?
KERRY WAS JUST A PSEUDO-FOREIGNER - A PSEUDO FRENCHIE-WANNABE.
BUT HALF OF OBAMA'S FAMILY IS TRULY FOREIGN.
- THE WORST OF THE BUNCH IS OF COURSE IS MICHELLE - WHO IS AMERICAN.
- BUT, WITH ALL THESE HALF-BROTHERS AND SISTERS RUNNING AROUND, IS THE OBAMA FAMILY THE BLACK AFRICAN EQUIVALENT OF CLINTONESQUE WHITE TRAILER TRASH?
- HIS POP HAD FOUR WIVES. HIS MOM TWO NON-WESTERN HUSBANDS.
- HE WAS RAISED BY WHITE GRANDPARENTS - AND THEN HE JOINED A RACIST BLACK CHURCH.
- IT'S ALL TOO EFFED UP FOR ME; THOUGH IT EXPLAINS A LOT OF OBAMA'S PERSONALITY TRAITS --- NAMELY HIS ABILITY TO BE A CHAMELEON WHO THROWS PEOPLE UNDER THE BUSH AS SOON AS THEY BECOME A LIABILITY TIO HIS SOCIAL CLIMBING.
- CAN'T WE DO BETTER THAN THIS?
- AFTER ALL, HE'S NOT RUNNING FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE FORD FOUNDATION OR TO BECOME SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE UN.
- HE'S RUNNING TO BE THE NEXT POTUS AND COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE MOST POWERFUL NATION IN HISTORY AND THE DEFENDER OF THE FREE WORLD.
- JUST ASKING.
HOW DARE I WANT A GOOD OL' AMERICAN FAMILY IN THE WHITE HOUSE!
BOTTOM-LINE: MCCAIN'S EXTENDED FAMILY IS BETTER THAN OBAMA'S.
MCCAIN IS A THIRD GENERATION NAVAL HERO.
