Unless you’re really determined to believe Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii, that whole deal is finished. But another interesting aspect of his parentage has come to light. It’s not really news, considering he wrote a bestselling book about his deadbeat dad, but now people are taking another look at that bum. The Daily Mail explains:
With a father like this, it is little wonder President Obama did not want to release his full birth certificate.
Though the proof that he was actually born in Hawaii may silence some critics, a new, rather more interesting side of his life has emerged – that his father Barack Obama senior was a serial womaniser and polygamist who government and university officials were trying to force out of the country.
Obama senior married Stanley Ann Dunham, a white student from Kansas, not only when he was said to have already been married to a woman in Kenya, but at a time when interracial marriages were still illegal in many parts of the U.S.
Documents obtained from the U.S. immigration service paint a picture of a man who ‘had an eye for the ladies’ and, according to his file, had to be warned several times to stay away from girls at the university…
A memo from a University of Hawaii foreign student advisor said that Obama senior had ‘been running around with several girls since he first arrived here and last summer she cautioned him about his playboy ways. Subject replied that he would “try” to stay away from the girls…’
He is further described as ‘a slippery character’, and his relationships with ‘several women’ are discussed and investigated, while questions about his ‘marital problems’ are repeatedly raised.
Another immigration memo, from June 1964, records that Harvard officials were trying ‘to get rid of him’ and ‘couldn’t seem to figure out how many wives he had’.
That’s why Obama has so many half-siblings he barely knows, born outside the U.S. Which, by the way, might be one reason so many people have been suspicious about his citizenship. Well, that and the obvious raaaaaaaaaaaacism.
Obama never knew his dad. You have to wonder what he’d be like now if he’d had his father in his life. Would he be less inclined to lie his way out of everything? Less sneaky and underhanded? Less eager to demonize anybody who disagrees with him? Less in need of constant adulation to fill that void inside?
Maybe. But then, he probably wouldn’t have become president. At least that’s something he can say for his absentee dad.
P.S. Thomas Lifson at American Thinker writes:
I entered Harvard a mere 5 years after Senior’s departure in 1964, and cannot imagine how bad Senior’s behavior must have been to engender the sort of issues raised by the authorities. Graduate students were very much on their own when it came to personal life. There would have had to be complaints, or failures to academically perform. There was absolutely no concept of in loco parentis when it came to graduate students. The International Office provided help in finding apartments and the like, but all the foreign students I knew (and I knew many, as I was studying Japanese and Chinese languages and histories) lived their personal lives in private. Now I acknowledge that standards no doubt changed in the turbulent 60s years that separated Obama Senior and me at Harvard. But for a graduate student’s private social behavior to come to the attention of academic authorities there must have been some flagrant academic problems or actual complaints.
