Yes, he was born in Hawaii, his mother was 18, an American studying there, a self-proclaimed “atheist” involved in radical politics. His Father was Kenyan and older. Apparently they were not legally married at the time of his birth (due to Father’s previous marriage to a Kenyan woman). Father skipped out age two, mother remarried a Muslim who took them to his country, Indonesia. This is where there’s always a gap of several years in Obama’s story, then suddenly he’s with grandparents. His mother was present at his wedding to Michelle, but I don’t know what ever happened to either father. Not exactly a traditional, or even “blended” American family. Pretty bizarre influences on the guy from day one.
Thanks for putting it all in such good order.
The time in Indonesia is written up in some places and I am sure he does not want to explain it! (Schools, churches and lots of mixed messages)
