He reportedly still owns a Manhatten apartment, even though he has been treated horribly by the people of New York City.

Then and Now: Decline of Barack Obama

The First one is a Joke – these Next two are for Real

Yesterday, the president and the vice-president appeared together in Cleveland.

CLEVELAND — The arena where President Obama and Vice President Biden are making their final appeal to Democrats to get out and vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections was far from capacity Sunday afternoon.

The crowd estimate stands at 8,000 in the arena that seats just over 13,000 and a couple thousand empty seats are visible above the stage where Obama and Biden rallied supporters.

Obama also had to stop to lecture some of his supporters who were heckling and interrupting his speech as he was in Connecticut for “Dick” (not really a Viet Nam Vet) Blumenthal yesterday.

I heard yesterday the protesters were removed from the arena, but I can’t find anything further about that, so maybe not.

Shahzad’s wife is American born from Boulder

More detail is emerging about NYC car bomb suspect Faisal Shahzad. His American born wife’s name is Huma Mian, a CU Boulder graduate in accounting. Huma Mian lived in Boulder with her sisters and father, and were described as friendly neighbors. Faisal Shahzad married Huma Mian on October 20, 2008.  Faisal Shahzad and Huma Mian have two children. Huma Mian and the children are believed by the FBI to be in Pakistan.

She grew up with her parents and at least two siblings in Aurora. Mian attended the University of Colorado in Boulder from 2000 to 2004, CU spokesman Bronson Hilliard told TheDenverChannel.com. Mian lived in Hallett Hall on campus and graduated May 7, 2004 with a business-accounting degree.

Faisal became a citizen April 17, 2009.  News reports say Shahzad’s path to citizenship was no doubt eased by his marriage to the American Mian.

Mian’s online photo gallery includes a photo of Shahzad smiling as he drives with a Bluetooth earpiece. “What can I say …. he’s my everything,” she wrote in a doting photo caption. She describes herself as a “not political” individual who likes to “party every night.” But also declares on her Facebook page “Im (sic) a Muslim & Im (sic) Proud!” and “I LOVE ALLAH.” She speaks “English (US), Pashto, Urdu, French,” according to her online profile.

UPDATED:  Another interesting detail –

Pakistani authorities have arrested several members of the family of Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, including his father-in-law, Iftikhar Mian. News reports in the US initially suggested a possible Colorado connection between Shahzad’s wife, Huma Mian, and Najibullah Zazi, an Afghan national who pleaded guilty to a foiled New York subway attack.
