    I assume he meant having drugs in his system while hanging with the wrong crowd.

    ...that's what I take from the comment as well, also that he too could have been beating the crap out of a person simply because he didn't like being watched.

    Yes, I suppose so. We can't be lucky in everything, can we?

    And getting suspended from school for tagging a wall in a restricted area and having drug paraphernalia with residue inside it? As well as a juvenile record?

    He probably has all those things. He just did a really good job of burying his past and paying all sorts of people to keep it that way.

    "Burying his past and paying all sorts of people to keep it that way?"
    Is there proof for this accusation?

    Again, an honest question....

    All one has to do is make inquiries that are standard procedure for the media to make when vetting a political candidate. With the Great Pretender, they find there is no open door to his past. One can't even acquire his Harvard transcript, much less a copy of his birth certificate. Hawaii lied when they said all their birth certificate records are closed. The records of millions of people born in Hawaii are readily available to just about anyone, media or not. Except, that is, the one for Barack Hussein Obama. Even now. Now, when the White House has supposedly authorized its release.

    I'm not a so-called "birther," however. I don't care where he was born. Mitt Romney's dad was accused of not being a "natural born American" and found to actually meet the Constitutional definition of such a person, so the Great Pretender probably can, too. The issue I have with him is his extreme secretiveness, hiding virtually every aspect of his past life from any kind of examination, thorough or cursory either one. I do not trust him, because he has made himself untrustworthy by his blatant personal secrecy and the media's failure to call him to task for making it so.

    What a weak speech by a President about racism.
    The most remembered line was, "every black man knows the feeling of being followed in a department store - even me"

    Given the Presidents checkered past that he himself relates, (drug abuse and close association with radical elements) - he was untrustworthy - someone we should have been keeping a close eye on.

    What should the President have said to unite the nation?

    Advice to Those Raising African-American Boys in the Wake of the Martin Shooting and Zimmerman Trial [LINK]

    Thabiti Anyabwile contrasts racially divisive and destructive advise with wise godly counsel.

    This is what should have been said by the President!

    As far as knowing the "feeling of being followed in a department store"---I'm a "white boy" and I know the "feeling"------I also know "the feeling" of being in places like Wally World(Wal Mart) and hearing the voice of the intercom saying something like-----"Security scan on Section C!!"---and I get this creepy feeling that I am Section C!!!----it is department policy to look out for shoplifting---stuff like that-----I wonder, though----how many times Billy Graham got "the feeling of being followed in a department store" by store security???:wavey::wavey::wavey:
