The definition of bigot came from Webster's.
Reverand Wright was in the Marines, for the two years required. Went nowhere, did nothing. He transferred to the Navy for the medical. He worked in a hospital. If that makes him great, then, as I said, every single medical tech out there is a great American. People use the word "Marine" to equate something he wasn't. The word "Marine" has specific meaning and brings specific images to mind when people read it. That is the intent and the purpose. You won't get folks all in the dither to wave the flag if you simply state he was a Navy Corpman and worked at Bethesda doing caths.
AND, yes, I did get the info on Wright from an e-mail. I actually got a link from my dad who was in the Navy and did something besides sit stateside! The link he provided is from the bio that Wright HIMSELF put out there. Thank you very much! We should all remember how assume is spelled!
The other info I posted is very easy to check. Well, unless one doesn't want to read the facts and prefers to just go on believing the pretty speeches. It would seem so since you went to the trouble to check on Wright but not on Obama.
Teflon attended Punahou PREP School. $16,675 a year to attend and that is only the base price. Lots more $$ for things other than initial enrollment. It is considered one of the most ELITE prep schools in the U.S.!
And, one might also do a little looking at the schools he attended in Indonesia. They aren't what is implied either. The one was set up by the Dutch for the rich kids. It was the Indonesian equivalent of a prep school. It is the school children of former Indonesian presidents have attended. The other is a Catholic school. Not exactly a school for poor little children of single parents. He was only out of the U.S. for 4 years. He attended each school for 2 years. Then he was shipped back to the U.S. PRECISELY so he could attend a better school, a prep school, an ELITE school.
AND, he himself says he attended an ELITE PREP SCHOOL when he describes attending Occidental College.
Plus, you won't find him downplaying Punahou Prep School. Kinda hard to do that without seeming to slam some of the other alumni such as Case and the founder of e-bay.
"If you ask the people in Hawaii what they know about Barack Obama, I think the honest answer is, 'Very little.' He went to school in Hawaii but he went to Punahou, and that was not a school for the impoverished."
