A Forward

I got this e-mail through a forward. And usually I'm not interested in those usually, but this one interested me a little bit. My family is defifnitely NOT voting for Obama, but when I got this i was a little offended in what he said:

Think you know who this man is?
This possible President of the United States !! Read Below and
ask yourselves, is this REALLY someone we can see as the
President of our great nation!!!!

Below are a few lines from Obama's books; In his words!

From Dreams of My Father: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'
From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my

father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself , the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela.'

And FINALLY the Most Damming one of ALL of them!!!

From Audacity of Hope: 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'

Comment away! I would love to know what you think:)

Hmmm. Though Obama is not Christian and I do not like and approve of many things that he did/does/will do. Some of these things aren't necessarily true. E-mail forwarding stuff isn't always right or true. You may want to double check this stuff of snopes or some other website like the news.

That is exactly why I said to put up what you think;)
It's not necessarily true, it's still wrong. And even though it was a forward, I thought it'd be interesting:P
