Let´s Ask Obama About
His Made-Up Girlfriends

American Thinker, by Jack Cashill

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/18/2013 7:20:54 AM

In the last 24 hours, the media have scrutinized Notre Dame All-American linebacker Manti Te´o´s life more completely than they did President Barack Obama´s in the last eight years. And that is shameful -- on both counts. The crux of the Te´o story, of course, is whether Te´o conspired to fabricate his seemingly tragic relationship with imaginary girlfriend Lennay Kekua or whether he is a victim of a cruel hoax. Much is at stake -- or so we are told. If Te´o proves to be a willing participant in a hoax, NFL scouts will question his character

I frankly don´t understand the hype behind this "scandal." And I love the concern about "NFL scouts will question his character." Since when has the NFL questioned a player´s character? Seems to me that Vick´s dog fighting prison term is much more significant and didn´t much impede his career.

When did character become suddenly important in the NFL or any other pro sport?

They are just characters in the fictional story of his life . They add interest and an illusion of being straight and normal. They are like the bible he will use when he takes the oath of office. They were props, temporarily useful.

If the NFL has a problem with Manti´s character ... he does have a promising career ahead of him as a Dem politician.

Personally ... I think the media "scrutiny" is just a ruse to knock ND down a peg or two after a great season, and the fact that ND has joined the suit against the Obamacare HHS regulations.

It became important #3 when it starts to look like people are correctly questioning where the media is/was on the subject of the vetting of Obama. Plus it´s about sex and you know how that sells ratings.

But some sex is off limits, such as Frank Marshall Davis; the underwear stain in BHO Poem, Pop, in the Occidental literary mag; a mysterious trip to Pakistan in the early 1980´s; yes, those composite girlfriends from the pre-Michelle days; his "friend" Reggie Love´s leaving the White House, which was on HillBuzz´s "gay-dar".

Apparently the writers at American Thinker suffer the same type of rental issues as the commenters here who lash out at everyone else whenever one of their heroes is found out to be a slug. In other words, is news that hard to write, that you have to compare the Te´o story with Obama? Really? And how the press is wasting their time and making fools of us because they reported the Te´o story without also bringing obama up in the same story?

I was just listening to the guys on ESPN tearing into the Te´o story, professing disbelief such a lie could be allowed to exist for so long, and I could only think how in a world I am old enough to remember, this vetting would have been applied to a Presidential candidate in 2008.

This 24/7 media coverage of Te´o must make Jack Cashill, who has exposed Obama as a liar, sick. But a college football player doesn´t have other people´s money to throw around, so, it´s fun and safe for the MSM to tear him apart.

It´s pretty funny that Manti Te´o was more investigated in 72 hours than President Obama has been in 10 years.

And we know more about Te´o´s birth, life, dating habits and character than the President´s.

Thank you #20 for enlightening #13. Jack Cashill is a methodical, accurate writer, and is known for his detail in whatever subject he is writing about.

His most recent book is Deconstructing Obama. Cashill made the connection, through, diligent examination, of the coincidences of syntax or patterns of expression between Dreams From My Father and Bill Ayers´ 2001 book, Fugitive Days for which Obama wrote a dust-jacket blurb. He doesn´t have to make up anything, because he knows how to "drill down" through stories to get to the truth.

Maybe Manti was on that same plane with Hillary when it crashed. If so, the press should equally respect his right to privacy and a full undisturbed recovery from the concussion/flu/heebeejeebees/whateva before they question him any further.

Demonstrably corrupt politician BHO is a veritable treasure-trove of documented self-contradictions, saying one thing back then and saying just the opposite here and now. But, how many “journalists” have the fortitude to paint him into a corner and star him in a good old-fashioned game of “Gotcha!?” Barely a handful, if that.

It appears that a man with a made-up girlfriend has his NFL career possibly harmed, yet a man with a mostly made-up background can get elected President. What a country this has become. I don´t understand what the big deal about a made-up girlfriend is anyway. I had a (female) friend who was an English professor, and one of her students wrote an essay about his girlfriend who sounded too good to be true. She asked him about that and he was clearly embarrassed, but her response was, oh hell, Anthony, it´s better that way anyway.

Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show. The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began

PARIS — Steeped in conservative rage and tasting of grass roots, a political backlash has traditional politicians and the news media asking the once-unthinkable: Is le tea party brewing in France?

A flood of corruption scandals involving state and local Democratic Party lawmakers is threatening to muddy the party’s image as it enters what was already a tough election cycle. In a week Democrats won’t soon forget, the Democrat-dominated California Senate took the unprecedented step Friday of voting 28-1 to suspend with pay three state senators in their own party accused or convicted of criminal conduct. State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on federal gun trafficking and corruption charges. Sen. Ron Calderon pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to charges of influence-peddling, and Sen.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Witnesses: Marine flashed security

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. The Washington Post confirmed and expanded on that reporting through interviews,

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Hillary 2016 Run May Be Sabotaged

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, in a closed-door address to a group of Republicans this week, issued a spirited defense of a broader role for the U.S. in the world, saying President Obama’s leadership has left a vacuum that’s been filled by “dictators like Bashar al-Assad in Syria and Vladimir Putin in Russia.” Speaking at the National Republican Congressional Committee’s annual fundraising dinner on Wednesday, Ms. Rice also said the party needed to embrace a softer image on immigration and declared school choice “the great civil rights issue of our time.” But she spent the majority of her time

When Sen.

Mike Lee. So he tapped into his actor’s training and summoned up his best Darth Vader impression. It was the impressionistic coming-out for the Texas Republican, who has since trotted out his versions of Jay Leno, Winston Churchill and fictional swordsman Inigo Montoya from the movie “The Princess Bride.” The impersonations have sparked laughter and applause from audiences and have added another

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across

A cup of Earl Grey ´as good as statins´

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
