    He has a poor memory or he doesn't think anyone else has a memory or he just lies and assumes no one will notice it.

    It's pretty sad when you actually hope Hillary kicks his ass.

    IMO, Barack Obama is a near reincarnation of Louisiana Governor and US Senator Huey Long, the “Kingfish”. Senator Long, was assonated in 1935 while a senator and planning to run against FDR for President. IMO, he could have given FDR a run for his money in the "Solid South" which was a big factor in FRD's election.


    Senator Long was a populist who told depression era voters that “Every man was a king” and promised “wealth redistribution measures in the form of a net asset tax on large corporations and individuals of great wealth to curb the poverty and crime resulting from the Great Depression. He was an ardent critic of the Federal Reserve System (from Wikipedia).


    Barack draws large crowds, especially young voters, and receives more contributions than the other candidates individually and possibly combined. His organization is growing with the help of many volunteers and his large fund raising advantage.


    Promising wealth to a poor population is an effective tactic. Very few of us had heard of Bill Clinton until he defeated George Bush senior by appealing to unemployed voters and poor voters with government provided health insurance.


    At least Jimmy Carter had an interesting brother named Billy who was a great beer lover and ran a filling station.
