Question president's past

Accolades to America’s media for digging and researching to reveal that Mitt Romney allegedly shaved a classmate’s head as a childhood prank in 1965.

Seeing that the nation gave a collective “so what?” it stated that the classmate, now deceased, was homosexual. This prompted a public condemnation from the man’s family. The left side of the media’s face, still stinging from their George Zimmerman debacle, had to divert attention and, in so doing, had its right side slapped. I know that the media must lie and distort and do all it can to aid in the re-election of Barack Obama, but really – a 1965 head-shaving?

Well, at least we know about Mitt Romney’s past, which is more than we can confirm about Barack Obama’s – or is it Barry Soetoro’s? Barry Soetoro was a student at Occidental College who went away for three years – and to this day the media never bothered to research where – only to return as a student at Columbia University under the name Barack Hussein Obama. Where did he go? Who paid his tuition, fees, room, board, alcohol and tobacco money?

A clipping from a Hawaii newspaper announcing the birth of Barack H. Obama, he claims, is evidence of being born in America. If he was born Barack Obama, why did Barry Soetoro go away for three years and return as Barack Obama?

Why are his student records, passport history and proof of citizenship still under lock and key (if they do indeed exist) to this day?

Why pay in excess of $2 million and counting to keep his eligibility out of court when an application and a $10 fee will get him an official copy of his birth certificate, if one does exist that was issued by Hawaii?

These are pertinent pieces of information that the media, if they are concerned, should seek. I guess Romney’s prank of 47 years past is equally relevant.

The American media – in for a dime, in for a dollar. If the media worked aboard the Titanic, they undoubtedly would have swung around and hit the iceberg a second time.
