Barack Obama Through his mother, related to Robert E. Lee
5th cousin 8 times removed to Barack Obama 44th U.S. President
Barack Obama in an article in USA Today, says this about Robert E. Lee: Â
I am seriously glad to be here tonight at the annual Alfalfa dinner. I know that many you are aware that this dinner began almost one hundred years ago as a way to celebrate the birthday of General Robert E. Lee. If he were here with us tonight, the general would be 202 years old. And very confused.
There’s an interesting article at CNN.com about the genealogy of our presidential hopefuls.
According to the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Sen. Barack Obama has family ties to: President George Bush, Winston Churchill, Lyndon Johnson, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, artist Georgia O’Keefe, actor Brad Pitt, Robert E. Lee and two signers of the Declaration of Independence.

“It is easy to go down into Hell; Night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; But to climb back again, to retrace one’s steps to the upper air — There’s the rub, the task.” – Virgil.
“The final victory of the divine over the demonic will be the victory of love. This love is linked to reason. In Milton’s terms, it interacts with reason, both contributing and receiving, as love “hath its seat In reason” and at the same time “refines the thoughts” (VIII, 589-91).” – Roland Mushat Frye. “God, Man, And Satan.” Princeton University Press: Princeton, New Jersey. 1960. Pg. 47.
“Decision’s hour comes. The knot is fastened.
He knows: the call outweighed the will to shun.
Yet his face, like a covered dial,
registers midnight. Even he is bound.” – R. M. Rilke, “The Magician.”
The road to World War III was paved with an epic act of deception by the internationalist U.S. government against Iran and the world. That act was not the false flag September 11 events, but the overthrow of the Shah of Iran and the installment of an militant and totalitarian Islamic regime in Iran headed by Ayatollah Khomeini.
Administration meltdowns are hardly novel. In almost every presidency there comes a moment when sheer chaos takes hold, whether self-induced or as a result of an outside crisis.
Vietnam had effectively destroyed Lyndon Johnson by 1967. Watergate unraveled the Richard Nixon administration, as the disgraced president resigned in the face of certain impeachment.
For a time, it seemed that Ronald Reagan’s second term might not survive the Iran-Contra scandal. George H.W. Bush could not be re-elected after he broke his promise not to raise taxes and Ross Perot entered the 1992 race.

Yet, a truly open convention would increase the GOP’s chances of defeating Barack Obama in November. A brokered convention would spark very real interest among the party faithful and, even more importantly, among independent voters. And it would send a clear message to those who would rather preserve the status quo than nominate a candidate who might shake up that status quo.
Romney has won only two of the four contests thus far…we have 46 states to go. Why do so many pundits believe that makes him the inevitable nominee?
The biggest difference in 1976 was that Ford was an incumbent president being challenged in his own party by a B-list actor turned Governor. It should have been a landslide for Ford and for the first few months, it was.
Reagan lost EIGHT of the first nine contests, some of them 94% to 5% and 83% to 15%. The pundits said it was over, he should get out and support the “inevitable” nominee.
Then came Texas!
Reagan creamed Ford in Texas on May 1 and then went on to win more than half of the remaining contests and came within just a handful of votes at the convention of defeating the incumbent president.
*side note* When Reagan spoke after Ford’s victory speech, everyone in the arena knew they had chosen the wrong man and came back in 1980 to get it right!
The point is that this race is far from over and Romney CAN still be stopped. We have 46 states to go and Romney only has 5% of the delegates he needs to win.
And here is the fun part for me…Texas sits poised to be right about the same time in this contest as it was in 1976. About half the delegates will be chosen by the time this battle gets to Texas on April 3rd. I predict Romney will be in the lead, but not near enough to come anywhere close to winning. In fact, it will not be far from a tie and Texas can be the one to start a huge shift AWAY from Romney.
The major differences between 1976 and 2012 are entirely in the favor of conservatives.
1. Romney is NOT an incumbent president and 75% of the republican voters have never been convinced he is the guy to support.
Fearing Gingrich, Both Sides Say He’s Unelectable
Posted on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 9:01:57 AM by jimluke01
What do establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats have in common? They’ve long labored under a shared misconception: conservative candidates are unelectable.
In 1980, conventional wisdom held that Ronald Reagan didn’t stand a chance against Jimmy Carter. The GOP leadership, the mainstream media and liberal politicos alike lined up against the Gipper in an attempt to derail his presidential campaign.
Rush Limbaugh recently addressed this phenomenon on his radio program: “Gerald Ford said that Ronald Reagan was unelectable. George H.W. Bush said that Ronald Reagan was unelectable. The entire Republican establishment thought Ronald Reagan was unelectable because they were governed and informed by the Goldwater landslide defeat. That’s what they think will happen to every conservative.”
That’s what they think will happen to Newt Gingrich.

Four months after a judge ordered the June 1975 records unsealed, the government’s Nixon Presidential Library was making them available online and at the California facility Thursday. Historians dared hope that the testimony would form Nixon’s most truthful and thorough account of the circumstances that led to his extraordinary resignation 10 months earlier under threat of impeachment.

I recall very well watching this on tv at home in California that night.
The audience, and God knows how many of us watching on tv, waited anxiously for him to arrive on stage.
He soon arrived and made that most memorable, for me, presentation as America cheered him!
We could surely use that man now.

I am posting this because I am getting tired of hearing all of the GOP people belly-aching about their predicament.
