No Basis For Comparison

Found out this about Barack Obama's mother:
Kansas was merely a way station in her childhood, wheeling westward in the slipstream of her furniture-salesman father. In Hawaii, she married an African student at age 18. Then she married an Indonesian, moved to Jakarta, became an anthropologist, wrote an 800-page dissertation on peasant blacksmithing in Java, worked for the Ford Foundation, championed women’s work and helped bring microcredit to the world’s poor.
Makes me wonder what George W. Bush's mother has done to advance the world. I'm sure there's no basis for comparison, but it looks to me that Barak Obama is coming from a solid rather the entirely privileged lineage like some Presidents we know.

1. Everyone on the net is anonymous.

2. If you argue logically with your opponents, as you do here, you lose. It's the nature of the opposition to cite lies as facts: to wit, that tax cuts produce more revenue than they lose to the cut. They don't.

Hey, I heard that Bab's plays a mean game of golf. Isn't that worth something??? I always thought that there was some inbreeding going on in the Bush lineage. There has to be some explanation for that family.
