The Obama administration urged officers of the struggling solar company Solyndra to postpone announcing planned layoffs until after the November 2010 midterm elections, newly released e-mails show.

Where did he spend the summer of 1981? Did he actually attend classes at Columbia? Did he write Dreams from My Father? These are all interesting questions, but not the most critical ones. The most critical question relates to his eligibility. Is he eligible to serve as President of the United States, or is he a usurper? Let’s analyze what we know to be true.
Does this mean we’re down to 56 states?
KO OLINA (HawaiiNewsNow) — The APEC conference in Hawaii ended Sunday with President Obama saying, “we’ve got a set of tangible, concrete steps that have been taken that are going to make our economy stronger.”. . .
