It’s a tragic event when political expediences take over a person’s life to the point where they re willing to betray relationships and principles in order to accomplish their political goals. We said it’s tragic, not surprising.
In fact, it seems routine, and is especially true regarding Mr. Obama.
According to the Washington Times, Barack Obama’s first serious love was a girl named Sheila Miyoshi Jager to whom he proposed in 1986. The relationship later ended as Mr. Obama realized that she possessed a characteristic that would make it difficult for him to succeed in politics – she was white – an apparent liability with the crowd he hung out with.
So, demonstrating that his political goals were more important that his alleged enlightened attitude on race, he rejected a girl he allegedly loved enough to propose to because of her skin color. Racism, anyone?
Clearly Mr. Obama was not about to let a white wife get in the way of his mindless obsession about becoming president. So his white fiancee got the boot in favor of Michelle. It’s a rather sad statement of the corrupted principles of the man who would eventually inhabit the White House.
Obama kept the relationship going for a while, but his political aspirations eventually doomed it. “After the proposal, Obama and Jager continued to date, but as his political aspirations grew, their relationship’s downfall started to become apparent. Jager has said, ‘I remember very clearly when this transformation happened, and I remember very specifically that by 1987, about a year into our relationship, he already had his sights on becoming president.'”
