Petulant Obama Wrong About Texas

At least, he's consistently wrong.

CNS News
In 1848, Democratic candidate Lewis Cass beat Whig candidate Zachary Taylor to win Texas the first time the state was eligible to vote in a presidential election.
After that, Democrats won every presidential election in the state until 1928 when Texas went for Republican Herbert Hoover.
In 1860, Abraham Lincoln was not even on the ballot in Texas, and the state was taken by John C. Breckenridge, the southern Democratic candidate. Texas, a slave state, then seceded from the Union.
Woodrow Wilson won Texas twice, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, perhaps the nation's most famous liberal Democratic president, won Texas four straight times. Twice in the 1950s, Dwight D. Eisenhower carried the state, and Republican President Richard Nixon won Texas in his 49-state landslide in 1972.
But it was not until 1980, when the state went to Republican Ronald Reagan, that Texas began consistently voting for Republican presidential candidates.
Obama also stumbled when he said, "I like Texas." He may have been confused and wanted to say, "I like taxes." Obama then ended with a suitably presidential hissy fit, "Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?"

That arrogant elitist SOB thinks that no one has the right to question him on any topic. I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist, but the birther question seems to be getting traction. Maybe Trump has enough clout to bring it to light. Don

What's been dubbed "the birther question," is much larger than just a birth certificate. There are valid reasons a persons to have no long form BC. Obama, like many Hawaiians just after statehood, may not have been born in a hospital; a home-birth does not get a BC, but a certificate of live birth,and there may not be any witnesses.

There's the school records from kindergarten thru university that have been lost, destroyed, hidden, never-were, or just plain covered-up; the passports of his and his mother that have disappeared into bowels of the federal government records systems; how did Obama travel to Pakistan on a US passport at a time when US citizens were barred from Pakistan; how did he get a Connecticut SSN for a guy born in 1896 when he never lived in Connecticut; how did he get through university without a job or clearly applied college loans; where did he and Michele actually meet - in college as he told Moscow University students or at his first law job as is claimed in his book; he looks nothing like Obama, Sr., and more like his godfather, Frank Marshall Davis, Chicago communist party community organizer; who really wrote his books. Who is Barrack Obama?

Trump looks like a fool; he can afford it. He is not a viable candidate, but he's important to the campaign and America for asking the questions no one else is asking or can afford to ask.

I don't consider Trump to be a realistic candidate either, but he shines light on a lot of cockroaches. Obama never mentioned he and his mother having to use food stamps in his books, but did in a speech. That should be easy to debunk with Trump's money. Where did someone of such modest means get the money for such an expensive education? Don

Exactly, Don!

I believe that Frank Marshall Davis is indeed Barack Hussein Obama's biological father.

If BHO knew so, then his book Dreams of My Father is a fraud.

His entire story would be a fraud. Obama does seem to be an assembly of so many and various personal fictions that makes Frankenstein's monster appear downright real in comparison.

"I like taxes" is pretty close to the mark.

Obama has been very dimissive, even arrogant (isn't that what he said about Bush foreign policy) towards states that didn't vote for him. Want another example? How about Arizona?
