Say It Ain't So, BO



This is an actual quote from Obama to CNN about How African Americans Are More Fundamentally Rooted In The American Experience

"That’s part of the African American experience. You are, in some ways, connected to this distant land, but on the other end, you’re about as American as it gets in some ways. African Americans are more fundamentally rooted in the American experience because they don’t have a recent immigrant experience to draw on. It’s that unique African American culture that has existed in North America for hundreds of years long before we actually founded the nation."

What history books has BO been reading?

What makes this such a colossal whopper is that Obama claims to be an African-American, as the son of a Nigerian, he does indeed have a recent immigrant experience to draw on.

Aside from that, he is making the same sort of point Pat Buchanan makes at times when Buchanan claims that he and his ilk are more American than anyone else by having roots going back hundreds of years in the continent.

Obama is on dangerous ground when he starts saying who is more American than other Americans. Sonia Sotomayor and Obama's Hispanic constituents come out on the wrong side of the dividing line.... and are less American, according to this little speech of Obama's.

A dangerous blanket statement. I agree completely with dmarks.

Not good. Obama's statement is bigoted. What a stupid jerk.

That sounds like it was pulled directly from a public school history text.

I need to correct my comments: Latinos/Hispanics have been in North America longer than black Americans.

He's a lib, they just have to utter a statement to make it true.

DaBlade nailed it.

Sorry all but, technically, this statement is true, "African American...has existed in North America for hundreds of years long before we actually founded the nation". There were indeed slaves and slaveholders in this country before the American Revolution for Independence. Many of the founding fathers of the US were slave holders.

What is absolutely false is this statement, "African Americans are more fundamentally rooted in the American experience because they don’t have a recent immigrant experience to draw on." By that measure, if anyone is more fundamentally rooted in the American experience, it would be Native Americans, not Africans or immigrants of any other descent.

My position though is, if you are born in this country, you are as legitimacy American as you can possibly get. Beyond the right of birth, if you have immigrated to this country and become an American Citizen, embracing the ideals and principles of freedom and democracy freely, without hesitation, and pledging your allegiance to the same, you are fully American.

But IMO, and I will not state this humbly, and is in line with the beliefs of this countries founders, going beyond birth, beyond immigration, and citizenship in being, American. America, and being American transcends more then a geographic place.

It is the fundamental belief, ideal, which made our founding fathers American before a declaration of Independence, and a nation, existed. That ideal, that belief, that knowledge, that the common people, in the best sense of that word, are capable of ruling themselves, without unreasonable interference of any government, or power.

This is what Obama does not understand. Why, birth certificate or not, as a true American, Obama is a man without a country.

My mother was born elsewhere and became an American citizen in about 1955. If there's someone MORE AMERICAN THAN HER, even I don't want to be around him/her.!! !!

Sheesh.

Why shouldn't Obama make such statements openly? He went to a church for twenty years listening to a black supremacy preacher.

American Blacks have made many contributions to our country. Their experience and history related to the US is unique and triumphant...but sadly it has taken a turn for the worse in the last 40 years IMO...due mostly to people like BHO.

Why do such stupid comments continue to come out of President Barack Hussein Obama's pie hole? How embarrassing.

If african americans are more fundamentally rooted in the american experience than other more recent immigrants, than why do so many act like they don't love this country?
