More from the Obama-rama, silliness persists…
And this man is a serious candidate?

A promise broken in the two years since his historic visit to his father’s ancestral village in 2006 still hasn’t been realized. Another photo-op and more stagecraft with no pledges kept to help fund the school honored with his name.
Now Obama’s promise is being realized with a non-profit charity, Save Senator Obama Kogelo School, Inc.
The Charity is the idea of the Baldilocks blogger Kenyan-American milblogger Juliette Ochieng.
Since I am of the same tribe as Obama, I think that it should fall to me to assist in filling in this gap. I’d like to start a fund to help this village school—and others, if possible.
Off the top of my head, the following information needs to be known:
1. an itemized list of the things which the village schools in Kenya require and that school in particular
2. supporting items and services for the above list
3. the logistics
4. the oversight plan of the money and the tasks
5. maintenance and upkeep required
In addition, there’s an over-arching concern about the infrastructure in the country: how much modern technology can the village handle?
I’m a fund-raising virgin, however, so as soon as I get some more information, we’ll get this ball rolling.
BTW, this will be a non-partisan endeavor. I’ve tweaked Obama as much as I’m going to on this topic. I’ll keep thumping him about other stuff but not about this. Heck, he can help–even get out in front of this parade as he is wont to do. Call it a tribute to Tom Mboya.
So, experienced fund-raisers. Talk to me.
So if you can help Juliette restore these villagers’ belief in American generosity send a few bucks to the charity.

Barack Obama speaking a closed door meeting with House Democrats Tuesday evening:
“I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions”
Robert Wexler the non-Floridian who represents the South Florida district that includes Delray Beach has decided to lease an apartment in the congressional district that he claims to represent rather than declaring residency at the home of his in-laws. Wexler actually lives in in Potomac, Md where his children attend school.
Wexler is a phony and just to the left of Karl Marx in his ideology.
His constituents should vote him out of office and banish him to Maryland where he seems to prefer to live.
From the Palm Beach Post:
Stung by claims that he doesn’t really live in Florida, Democratic U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler said today that he will lease an apartment in his congressional district rather than declaring residency at the home of his in-laws.
Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly last week accused Wexler of being a bogus Floridian. The O’Reilly Factor, acting on research by Wexler’s Republican challenger, noted that Wexler owns a home in Potomac, Md., and enrolls his children in school there. Wexler is registered to vote at the Delray Beach address of his wife’s parents.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler says he will lease an apartment in his congressional district rather than declaring residency at the home of his in-laws.

Shortly after he was elected in 1996, Wexler sold his Palm Beach County home and moved his family to the Washington, D.C., area, saying that was the best way for him to spend time with his children.
In a statement released by his office this afternoon, Wexler again defended his Florida residency but said he didn’t want the issue to be a distraction.
“My wife, Laurie, and I have decided to lease a residence of our own in Palm Beach County,” Wexler’s statement says.
“Although I am confident that I have represented my district as well as anybody possibly could, I have heard the concerns of some of my constituents and do not want this issue to distract from my advocacy of the important issues facing our community and country.”
Wexler chief of staff Eric Johnson said the congressman is looking at a three-bedroom apartment in the Boynton Beach-Delray Beach area and could sign a lease as soon as next week.
I have a feeling Wexler will be in a hard fought battle for his seat this year.
Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzenitski Brzezinski has the IQ of a kumquat… or less. She is disturbed that Republicans hire Republicans to work in a Republican administration. Mika’s partner, Joe Scarborough found her comment as unusual as he went on to describe, surprise,surprise, that his staff at MSNBC had no Republicans and was acknowledged by his Morning Joe producer. Video below…
The Obama Campaign collaborated with the Israeli news media to publicize the note that Barack left at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. An Israeli paper was duped by the junior Illinois Senator’s campaign to publish the note.
What initially seemed to be a journalistic scoop of dubious moral propriety now seems to be a case of an Israeli paper being played by the Barack Obama campaign. Maariv, the second most popular newspaper in Israel, was roundly criticized for publishing the note Obama left in the Kotel. But now a Maariv spokesperson says that publication of the note was pre-approved for international publication by the Obama campaign, leading to the conclusion that the “private” prayer was intentionally leaked for public consumption.
At around 5am last Thursday, Obama arrived at the Kotel, or Western Wall, abutting the holiest site in Judaism, the Temple Mount. Accompanied by the Rabbi in charge of the site, Shmuel Rabinovich, he reportedly heard Psalm 122, which contains a prayer for the peace of Jerusalem, touched the wall briefly and then deposited a note of prayer into a crack between the ancient stones, in keeping with the tradition of visitors to the site. On his way out, he was briefly heckled, with one man calling out that “Jerusalem is not for sale” and “Remember what you see here.” Trying to drown out the critics, a few supporters chanted his name.
“Obama’s note was published in Maariv and other international publications following his authorization to make the content of the note public. Obama submitted a copy of the note to media outlets when he left his hotel in Jerusalem.”
Typical the Obama campaign using religion as a campaign prop. I wonder if Reverand Jeremiah Wright was advising Barack on this.
Just another Campaign Stunt. The Obamarama steams on with it’s misrepresentations and lies.

Another Democrat resigning office on Child porn related allegations. New Jersey Assemblyman Neil Cohen resigned admitting that he needed Psychiatric help. A common excuse for Democrats.
Veteran state Assemblyman Neil Cohen resigned this morning, less than a week after child pornography was allegedly found on his legislative office computer.
Cohen (D-Union) submitted his one-sentence resignation letter to clerk of the Assembly at 9:24 a.m., said Derek Roseman, spokesman for the Assembly Democrats.
It read: “Please accept this letter as my formal resignation from the General Assembly of the State of New Jersey, effective immediately.”
Assembly Speaker Joseph J. Roberts Jr. (D-Camden) said he accepted Cohen’s letter of resignation.
“The allegations made against Assemblyman Cohen, if true, are sad and indefensible,” Roberts said in a written statement.
“Assemblyman Cohen was a respected legislator who dedicated his life to the Statehouse and whose legacy would have been great. Unfortunately, all of that will now be forever overshadowed,” Roberts said. “While law enforcement reviews these allegations, we sincerely hope he receives the help he desperately needs.”
Cohen, 57, voluntarily sought psychiatric care last week after investigators seized his office computer.
A staffer in the Union Township office allegedly discovered a computer printout of a nude girl that was traced back to Cohen’s computer. The two Democratic lawmakers who share the office with Cohen– Sen. Raymond Lesniak and Assemblyman Joseph Cryan– then informed the Legislature’s Office of Legislative Services, which notified the Attorney General’s Office.
“The most solemn duty of a commander in chief is to fulfill his responsibility to the men and women who serve this country in uniform. Barack Obama had scheduled a visit with wounded American troops who have served with honor and distinction in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he broke that commitment, instead flitting from one European capital to the next. Several explanations were offered, none was convincing and each was at odds with the statements of American military leaders in Germany and Washington. For a young man so apt at playing president, Barack Obama badly misjudged the important demands of the office he seeks. Visits with world leaders and speeches to cheering Europeans shouldn’t be a substitute for comforting injured American heroes.”
