<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Dinesh D’Souza, a naturalized American citizen born in Mumbai, India, conservative political commentator and Evangelical Christian apologist, former policy analyst in the Reagan administration, who has accused “the cultural left in this country [of being] responsible for causing 9/11”, tracked down and interviewed Barack’s half-brother, who lives in Nairobi, Kenya, in what a US news report described as a shack “like something out of Slumdog Millionaire” <u>for his film, 2016: Obama’s America, based on his 2010 book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage,</u> which D’Souza purportedly claims to be an examination of the President’s intellectual influences. He even credits Michael Moore as an inspiration, a rather back-handed sort of compliment, as D’Souza’s film is about as fact-packed as a hot air balloon leaking noxious gas. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Even more amazing, his entire approach backfires when D’Souza tries his hardest to pin George Obama down, asking painfully obvious leading questions, such as why the half-brother of the most powerful man on the planet lives in poverty.</span> </div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><span style='font-size: 14pt'>To his credit, George Obama displays an integrity and strength of character that seems to run through the Obama family, regarding D’Souza with palpable cynicism.</span> “I think he has a family of his own,” he said. But-but-but, D’Souza sputters, aren’t you his family, too? George shrugs. “I’m a member of his family, but I’m overage. So I help myself.” D’Souza then falls back on his evangelical training, quoting the Bible about being “our brother’s keeper.” George looks as if he’s about to laugh. “He’s got other issues to deal with. He’s taking care of the world, so he’s taking care of me.”

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Watching D’Souza flounder while George languidly batted away any accusations against his half brother was actually a pleasure to watch.</span> And quite sobering as well. When D’Souza pressed George about his father, a man D’Souza had reviled in his book as a “philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anti-colonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son,” George’s expression turned from scepticism to a wistful introspection. “He was really educated. My mum was disappointed in me because I actually didn’t finish my schooling. I really did let her down, I let my father down because he was an intellectual guy.”

<span style='font-size: 14pt'><u>The degree of humility, intelligence and grace under pressure George Obama shows in this film is admirable.</u> Which makes this latest attempt at smearing Obama through his family even more ludicrous and contemptible.</span> This pathetic imitation of a “documentary” is filled with histrionic imagery, like Benjamin Franklin’s face on a burning banknote, and turns out to be nothing more than a thinly veiled race-baiting fantasy that questions Obama’s patriotism, regurgitates repeatedly discredited speculation on his citizenship, his religious beliefs, his supposed lack of support of Israel, his “Big Government” programs, and trawls the dregs of incendiary rightwing conspiracy theories. He casts doubt on Obama’s birth, his grades at Occidental College, his SAT scores, his GPA at Columbia, the subject of his thesis, his law school tests, his LSAT score that entitled him to enrol at Harvard law school. He questions who Obama’s friends might have been, the names of all his girlfriends since his first kiss, as if this is all proof of some massive secret conspiracy that’s been going on since Barack Obama was in diapers. </div></div>



The author nails it.

Worse, it’s not just a few isolated incidents and it's growing every day. It would be nice to think that there would be some limit to the lunacy, some line that oversteps the boundary of what even the most die-hard conservative considers acceptable, some semblance of personal integrity, a smidge of decency, morality, and common sense still surviving by even the most precarious toehold in the Republican party. But this shrill loony-toon circus just continues to descend into new circles of hell. I genuinely fear for the soul of America.</span> </div></div>

I loved at the end of the clip where fellow Fox News contributor Tamara Holder said of Malkin that "she needs to get layed" LMAO Too funny! St.

He could have easily went off on Obama but he didn't have to. He allowed the interview to take place so that he is still on Obama's mind and making sure Obama does not forget the way he is treating his brother.

This is no different than a kid getting beat up in the playground and people ask him why he doesn't tell his parents and get help and the little guy shrugs them off and says he can handle it. No different at all.

What is really funny is that George has more integrity than Obama. George understands that Obama should be helping his own family and sees Obama out there trying to steal more money from the rich to help other Americans when Obama cannot even give $5 a month to help his own brother.

I give credit to George because he knew why he allowed the interview, he showed the world what a douchebag brother he has, and he showed his own integrity by not using the moment as a way to make profit.

I hear there was a plan for setting that up, but no one was willing to be the one to handle the pre-"Lay Maulkin for her own good" requirement, which all those who were willing to do the job, insisted upon.

No one was willing to get close enough to pull the bag over her head. Seems they were all too afraid of getting bitten, and the volunteers refused to get the necessary Rabies shots!
