    Obama unveils 'My Brother's Keeper,' opens up about his dad, drugs and race

    "I didn't have a dad in the house, and I was angry about it, even though I didn't necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn't always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short," the President said.

    Great news for the American people, the President is an emotionally scarred former drug addict.

    Yawn. Maybe MSNBC can schedule a 60 minute blowjob that makes The Blind Side look like a Nazi documentary.

    Don Lemon on CNN announced that at last Obama has become truly black and is going to start taking care of "those from whence he came."

    This is an obvious attempt by Obama to create more racial division. The real question is Why at this time?

    My guess is that we're going to see more divisive nonsense because the Democrat base is not hopeful for the midterms and they must be fired up to get out the vote. Hate and divisiveness have worked well for the Democrats in the past. Look at what the evil, oppressive whites have done to you. You're lucky we're here to save you.

    At least he is finally embracing some sort of 'victim status'. Up until now he hasn't played any of those "cards" in his hand.

    Smart move actually before the mid-term elections. Because after all, who doesn't love a neglected child or a puppy with a broken leg?

    Remember how our last president was a drunk and a coke head? But lied about it? Obama, meanwhile, wasn't born rich, didn't go to Harvard on his family's money, and lived a life a lot closer to the average American's. And people are blasting him for being honest about it? A kid who didn't always make the perfect decisions, and didn't always have the safety net of wealth to insulate him from the repercussions, and then put in the hard work to rise above his station... that's the American dream, isn't it?

    The CNN reporters were just gushing about the program.

    That aside, I dont think it is a conscious effort to create artificial divisions. Instead, it is just another one of Obama's half baked social programs that he proposes, initiates, and then when public interest fades, walks away from.

    Heck, in the past Obama's tossed out program ideas of "Occupy, community orgainize and reduce your student debt", Join the Obamacare Presenter Corps, join the healthy school lunch initiative, become part of the "guaranteed savings initiative", Save the environment - get cash for your clunker, etc etc...
