    more lies
    …..finally made the Drudge report
    Barry claimed in 2007 his parents first met on bridge in Selma 1965
    4 years after he was born in 1961

    • Obama is a fraud.

      Deep cover stories/legends are hard to maintain over time.

      • mauser 98

        Barry has a ton of ’em
        childhood ,school, passports etc.

    • MRHapla

      He has a thick Hawaiian accent.

      • mauser 98

        Barry’s accent changes to suit the crowd… he is good at it
        ol ‘Hill too

    The NYT biased? I don’t think that would surprise anyone here. But I think this is a tempest in a teapot: The cropped photo is much more aesthetically pleasing, shows the Obama’s faces in more detail and has them more centered in the picture. It is more newsworthy to show the current POTUS on the front page than a former one. There are so many real issues out there that conservatives should focus their energy on – this one just makes me go “Meh….”

    • Good point

    • Clink9

      “aesthetically pleasing” and ” Obama’s faces” in the same sentence?

      • Sharkibark

        Point taken 😛

      Bush Derangement Syndrome – it’s still there.

    • Exile1981

      Add in that with Bush gone from the pick it is more mono-chromatic and fits the narrative better. I think it is less about it being Bush and more about it being a white person.

    What liberal media?

    The modern successor to the Party of Slavery was a a house divided. Their civil rights initiatives relied on GOP support to get through congress. That no longer seems relevant as far as “Rev” Emperor Barry’s and the NYT’s narrative of history is concerned.

    I used to say that “there is no one more dishonest than a CBC News editor”. Now, well, this rule can apply to the New York Times as well.

    • Frau Katze

      They’re pretty much the same.

  • MRHapla

    So the PCLibs Black Caucus is miffed that the Repubs aren’t dropping everything to play Civil Rights re-enactor , even though they co=sponsored and did attend?

    Revisionist history is one thing, but revisionist current events? truth?

    PCLibDemScum lies,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
