Third-grade photo capture's [sic] Obama's grin (3rd grade in Hawaii?)
Honolulu Star Bulletin ^ | 01:30 a.m. HST, Dec 28, 2009 | Patt Gee

A former Manoa resident sent President Barack Obama an old photo of the two of them taken while they were third-grade classmates at Noelani Elementary School, requesting an autograph more than six months ago. He recently received the autographed picture back, as well as a personally signed thank-you note.

Ok, let's say he spent part of a year in HI in the third grade in 1969. Why does this guy remember him? Photographic memory? Everyone that remembers someone in your 3rd grade class that attended for only part of the year raise your hand.

Try looking at your 3rd grade yearbook and you'll be surprised at how many memories come back. Yes, even of kids who were only in your class part of the year. And no photographic memory is required.

Besides, this kid remembering Barry isn't at all strange, especially since there probably weren't too many black kids in that school at the time.

What's REALLY strange is how so few who say they remember him during ALL his years in school have actually come forward...

The Indonesians most definitely aren’t Chinese. A lot of Chinese (as a result of centuries of trade and colonization from South China, but mostly from the mass emigration from south China in the 19th-20th centuries) live there as a cultural and racial minority, and there is considerable intermixing, but the native peoples are quite distinct in appearance, general aspect and facial features.

Leave aside all theories of origin, they just do not look Chinese. Spend some time in Asia and you will gain the ability to judge origins from appearances. The Asian kid in this photo looks distinctively Japanese, though he could at a stretch pass as Chinese, probably from North China.

Add to your list....

Barry Soetoro’s legal name change to Barack Hussein Obama.

The B/C passed off on the net as Barry’s can not be his legal B/C. At age six he was adopted, his legal b/c would not have Obama Sr. listed as the father, Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo would be.

Barry could go into court an legally change his name; he could not go into any court and have his adoption “reversed”. Legally, Soetoro is his father.

Where’s the B/C Dear Leader?

There were lots of cameras around in those days that could take a picture as sharp as this. Any decent 35mm rangefinder (available in the millions by 1969) could, just to start. My old Argus “brick” certainly can, and there were 2 million made of those.

KINDERGARTEN???? Kindergarten is for kids around 5 years old, not 8 years old. I think I missed something. Can anyone here help me???

This picture is from 3rd grade. Obama was only there part of the year.

But apparently they also went to kindergarten together, which would make sense if he stayed with his grandparents and they didn't move.

Good luck finding Scott. Cross-racial IDs can be tough.

there’s a very fuzzy image of a letter supposedly from the WH in relation to that image.

Has anyone been able to read the contents?

btw, I have had that image of the two boys saved in my collection since October 4.

I’m unsure of the context, it may have been from the above article, although I see no date.

I do not know how to ‘open’ the image I have saved, but ‘properties’ shows I saved in on October 4.

Not sure bout that...just yet. Cause wouldn't that mean that Mr. Inoyoue was in on the faking of the photo some how?

It might be easy for "Ducky" to copy the image from one of the earlier newspaper articles, "edit" it in some unnoticeable way and then save it thus giving it their "stamp" on the new version.

I think Scott would be the boy on the far left sitting on the floor, wearing the "checkered" shirt.

Compare his eyebrows, low forehead and hair line.

I am completely confused by this thread.

Why would that photo be faked? What would be the purpose?

I know the Obama-proffered timeline doesn’t fit facts, but I don’t know how this would help him in any way.

Your guess is as good as mine...I saved the image from somewhere early in October. WesternJouralism website has it up with a caption that identifies the image as being from Panahou. The chiropractor says he was at kindergarten with zero and at Iolani (IIRC) - and we cannot read the letter - on which the signature appears to be a dead-set copy of the letter Neil Abercrombie presented (except for a squiggle at the very end of the final letter) yet the Indonesian website shows zero (looking rather strange, as if he has no neck and someone has partially shaved his head) in the same row as a chinese boy who looks very similar to Scott, beneath which, circled, is an adult with glasses, who might very well be the chiropractor from California...

Now why would we not all be confused?

“At this point - Are you a troll?”

I asked for a link to any evidence that Barry was adopted by Soetoro beyond what I consider to be the weak circumstantial evidence of the Indonesian school register.

It is damaging to the cause of removing Obama ASAP to declare assumptions to be facts, such as “Obama was adopted by Soetoro,” when there isn't sufficient evidence to back it up. If you search my Freeper history it is clear what I am, which is a constitutionalist and truth seeker.

I am a retired CPA and CFA (Certified Fraud Examiner) and have three decades of experience investigating and analyzing facts and fraud.

As a former CFA, Obama’s refusal to release his HI vital records raises a high probability that he is concealing a fraud of some kind related to his eligibility, but you don't have to be a CFA to realize this. Trolls will never admit this, though!

What's REALLY strange is how so few who say they remember him during ALL his years in school have actually come forward...

Bingo !

Even in the self congratulating mode of a party nomination & acceptance speech in Denver last year the obligatory movie and stage lacked the expected contingent of "old friends", in fact the movie (I think) jumped from Hawaii to Chicago, huge jump.

If Obama was to submit his "public" resume for a real job it'd be trashed for having too many unexplained gaps in its timeline.

The media just yawned.

The Dunham/Soetoro divorce filing lists two children, one a minor (Maya), one over 18 (Barry, who would have been in college). http://decalogosintl.org/documents/Soetoro_Divorce.pdf

They are also listed in the separation/child visitation papers.

That is significant evidence of legal adoption.
