    President Obama's best friend from high school 'brutally beat and raped woman in her

    Keith Kakugawa: President Obama's best friend from high school 'brutally beat and raped woman in her apartment'

    President Obama's high school best friend, who at one time was 'like a brother' to him, has been accused of brutally raping and beating a woman, it emerged today.
    Keith Kiyoshi Kakugawa, 54, from Eureka, California, was arrested at his home last Sunday and booked into Humboldt County Jail on suspicion of false imprisonment, sexual penetration by force, oral copulation by force and battery.
    The arrest is the latest in a long list of convictions for Kakugawa, who was close friends with the President when they both attended Panahou High School.

    Re: President Obama's best friend from high school 'brutally beat and raped woman in

    Or judge a man by the threads he makes.


    Apparently, there were only four blacks in the HS so it stands to reason they would all hang out together. It's quite a streeeeeeeeetch to say that Obama is somehow responsible for the actions of someone he knew in HS and has had little contact with since.


    Obama isn't going to be running for the highest office again so why are conservatives still so obsessed with his childhood?

    Jesus was friends with Judas Iscariot and George Washington was friends with Benedict Arnold.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This is the saddest attempt at guilt-by-association I've seen in a while.

    How the hell do you judge a man because a friend in high school did something wrong over 30 years later?

    For ****s Sake, really?

    They were friends from high school and your own article says that, after that, their paths largely diverged from each other. They're now more than a QUARTER DECADE away from being friends. God knows what happens and occurs over that time, not to mention that if anything the fact he DIDN'T "keep his company" perhaps speaks of sound MODERN judgement as opposed to poor PAST judgement.

    Ridiculous.

    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    There are a ton of reasons to criticize Obama. I don't think this is one of them. If a story like this came out about a candidate I support, it wouldn't change my opinion of that candidate.

    I used to.

    Stopped right around when he tried to bring back the Vince Foster murder conspiracy during the 08 election season.

    Pretty sure the list of those not guilty would be miiiiiiighty short if we started judging people by the actions of everyone they ever met; past, present, and future.
