Yeah, I know, it’s The Donald. But at least somebody is asking some questions that should have been answered in 2007:
Donald Trump is upping the ante against President Barack Obama’s legitimacy, raising questions on Monday night about how the president was admitted to two Ivy League schools.
Trump openly questioned how Obama, who he said had been a “terrible student,” got accepted into Columbia University for undergraduate studies and then Harvard Law School.
“We don’t know a thing about this guy,” Trump said. “There are a lot of questions that are unanswered about our president.”
Back when the questions about Obama’s past should have been asked, the media and the blogosphere were just parroting Obama campaign propaganda about how he was a super-genius and a political Jedi master who taught himself eleventy-dimensional chess while working alongside his mother in the sugarcane fields at the age of three.
The fact was that most of the things we heard about Obama were either unsupported by any evidence or were contradicted by historical records. Obama had moved through life without accomplishing very much of significance. But more disturbing than the lack of accomplishment was the way records were kept hidden and witnesses were reluctant to talk.
Worst of all was the way that the people who should have been asking questions gave him a free pass. If Obama had received even ten percent of the scrutiny given Sarah Palin his candidacy would have been DOA long before the Iowa caucuses.
I’m not gonna run around with my hair on fire trying to tell people the truth anymore. Life’s too short.
I’m descended from a long line of redneck dirt farmers who never had a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. But they knew two things: how to hunker down and survive, and how to drink beer.
I worked very hard for over two years and ended up with nothing to show for it but new scars on my back. I could have spent that time fishing or drinking beer. Or drinking beer while fishing.
Keep your worms warm.
