On September 4, 1957, she and eight other African American students attempted to enter Little Rock Central High School, which had previously only accepted white students.'

I believe that if voters had read about Obama in his own words they would not have elected him the first time. Instead they were brainwashed by the MSM who never let any negative things get out. Shame on them and on the voters for not seeking the truth. 11/06/13
