Skip to comments.Barack Obama Sighting, Hawaii 1980

A friend of mine sent me this story of his time in the Marine Corps. Read through to the end, its a shocker.
What strikes me most is what he said as to where he grew up: Indonesia. He told me he wanted to be President of the US someday. I remember lightly smiling and commenting that maybe by the time he gets to be 40 or so, America will be ready for a Black man to be President and I wished him luck. We spoke of the racial tensions I saw at home while growing up and I asked him if he ever saw that overseas or since he returned back to Hawaii. I dont remember his answer, but we spoke more of his time overseas and his thoughts on life and philosophy of government. He made some strange comments to me, it was obvious he never set foot for any time in the continental United States and I told him he better realize that he is making judgments about the United States when he himself never actually lived there. I told him, Hawaii aint the United States!
He also told me something that I never forgot, for it caused me to do some other things in an effort to be nice to him and possibly a favor. We spoke of where I had been and the world as I saw it. I told him I had been to Africa , Mombassa specifically, and he said to me abruptly, I was born there. I told him he is not eligible to be president if that was true, but I remembered he said his mom was an American, so, maybe it was okay.

bkmk and bump
As he says he cant prove it.
This is about as authenticated as the CBS/GWB national guard memos and you can see where that got Dan Rather.
Cool that you wrote this.
I had shorts like that once. LOL.
Hey. That’s a 280ZX in that last foto. I had one of those.
Your other fotos remind me of my army days as a tread head, 1975 to 1978.
This is a stupid story. Barry O. doesn’t look Mulatto. He looks black, plainly.
Mumbassa? Sure, some dork said that and also that he wanted to be President. NOT.
Almost interesting writing but, I could have done a better job.
I am going back to bed. A little under the weather.
Barry O. will be out, Christmas 2010
I’m assuming your post was meant as sarcasm.
0 looks black? Sure. Stand him next to Michelle, or compare pictures with his supposed “father,” or even his illegal under-the-bus “auntie.”
You do need sleep.
we had shorts like that then because we could! :)
We are all a little frustrated lately but, this story just has some very obvious holes in it.
Does Barry O. look like a Mulatto? That is when my spidey senses went off the chart.
And that story from Barbara Nelson is just so much baloney as well.
Go ahead and flame me. You know my very strident stance on Barry O. but, I want to have unimpeachable evidence on this guy not some stories that don’t make sense.
I have a friend who is a high level Dem operative and big time supporter. A few months ago she just had to to tell me she met a woman went to school with Barry O. to which I replied “So?”. Somehow she thought would be interesting and I asked from that where are trying to go.
She said nothing more, so it is just a story.
You have been here a long time and I don’t doubt your memory. The story, however, just seems improbable.
I have a headache and a sore throat. Really tired today.
Going back to bed in a while.
No my post wasn’t sarcastic. Heck, I called my Dad after his 2004 speech and asked if he knew about this black Senator. He didn’t.
Dude looks black to me and yes his relatives look a shade a darker but, Barry O. looks black to me.
The person who wrote the original piece that was quoted in the email was our own Freeper RaceBannon ( the experience happened to him when he was a young man). He thinks it was Obama... and I’ve been around here long enough to know Race isn’t a bulls—ter. Time will tell - there are bound to be others out there with pieces of information about this issue. No man is an island.
Thanks. I was trying to remember when he moved so he could pretend he was in college.
As is said, . . .”anyone, anywhere, anytime, can post anything on the internet — credibility notwithstanding!
Why would you meet a young man and out of the blue say, well you can’t be president? If the story were true, this soldier needs more than I think it was him,he was mulatto.
The only thing I can verify of this story is locals did hate outsiders in Hawaii. A friend born in Maui, moved to Hawaii and the locals constantly broke into her apartment because they thought she was not a local. One day she caught one and screamed I am a local, get out of here.
I agree the story is odd but if it were true it proves nothing.
Although Race remembers Zero, apparently no one who went to Columbia does. You would think there would be hundreds of Ivy League lib wieners claiming to have been his best buddy from back then...but no.
RB, please watch your back.
When 0b0z0 is caught and thrown out of our House, it would be interesting to see how many will vanish from FR.
I believe that ANY of his hidden records, once revealed, will nail him and end his fascist reign.
