2nd gay-reference Obama poem discovered (1978). Probably did have extramarital affair with Larry Sinclair.

The below press release was sent to me by a Mr Johnson and it was addressed to gopwomen and for some reason was bcc'd to me.

I found this very distasteful to try and bury a running president in a barrage of lies. I am not a US national and not even based there but I unlike many people nowadays love America, the tv shows, the films, the people, the technology and ideas that come out of there but what I don't like about it is how dirty tricks campaigns occur at times of elections. To say that President Obama is or was gay it not a very nice thing to do. If he was actually gay then fair is fair you shouldn't hide your sexual preferences but he is not. This was very below the belt and although it was not Izmir story where I currently reside I decided to share it anyway because if this is happening at a lower level then imagine what is happening behind closed doors.

This is what I was sent as some kind of press release:

 Obama's 1978 High School literary magazine refers to another relationship with an older man. Excerpt below (the poems become more graphic):

"Seeking a hiding place, the night seals us together.
A transient spark lights his face, and in my honor,
He pulls out forgotten dignity from under his flaking coat."
Author Jack Cashill describes 2 of Obama's father figures in the link below. These 2, Frank Davis and "Evie", were both intrusively gay.
4 of Obama's father figures were a traumatic disappointment to the young man. Chronologically, they were, Obama Sr., Soetoro, "Evie", Davis.

I didn't even know who gopwomen were but it turns out they are some foolish Christian republicans who believe that playing the gay card is going to give them a Republican president.

Here is an excerpt I find of what these gopwomen want to do in the US:

Top 10 Shocking Attacks from the GOP's War on Women

1) Republicans not only want to reduce women's access to abortion care, they're actually trying to redefine rape. After a major backlash, they promised to stop. But they haven't yet. Shocker.
2) A state legislator in Georgia wants to change the legal term for victims of rape, stalking, and domestic violence to "accuser." But victims of other less gendered crimes, like burglary, would remain "victims."
3) In South Dakota, Republicans proposed a bill that couldmake it legal to murder a doctor who provides abortion care. (Yep, for real.)
4) Republicans want to cut nearly a billion dollars of food and other aid to low-income pregnant women, mothers, babies, and kids. 
5) In Congress, Republicans have a bill that would let hospitals allow a woman to die rather than perform an abortion necessary to save her life. 
6) Maryland Republicans ended all county money for a low-income kids' preschool program. Why? No need, they said.Women should really be home with the kids, not out working. 
7) And at the federal level, Republicans want to cut that same program, Head Start, by $1 billion. That means over 200,000 kids could lose their spots in preschool.
8) Two-thirds of the elderly poor are women, and Republicans are taking aim at them too. A spending bill would cut funding for employment services, meals, and housing for senior citizens.
9) Congress just voted for a Republican amendment to cut all federal funding from Planned Parenthood health centers, one of the most trusted providers of basic health care and family planning in our country.
10) And if that wasn't enough, Republicans are pushing toeliminate all funds for the only federal family planning program. (For humans. But Republican Dan Burton has a bill to provide contraception for wild horses. You can't make this stuff up).

This is the reason I have a dislike for religion and politics they should never ever be mixed and no-one in office should be allowed to make a law on religion alone. If everyone followed religion to the book there would be no invention, no aspirations and we would still be knocking stone on stone and saying two words Ugg! Ugg! 

As for Obama being gay or having a gay experience, I don't believe it, but how many gay clergy rapists are there out there and they are supposed to be more divine than the rest of us. It's a crazy mixed up world.
