BIRTHER ALERT: 8 Surprising Facts We Learned About Barack Obama's Mother NYT Magazine Feature
Business Insider ^ | 04/20/2011 | Noah Davis

Posted on 04/20/2011 9:22:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Stanley Ann Dunham, better known as President Barack Obama's mother, passed away in 1995 before seeing her son become the most powerful man in the world.

In this weekend's New York Times Magazine, Dunham gets a long profile adapted from Janny Scott's forthcoming book, A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother.

The article paints a portrait of a complex woman who traveled to Indonesia with her second husband, battled the customs while raising her son and new daughter, and eventually returned to Hawaii.

As Scott writes, "To describe Dunham as a white woman from Kansas turns out to be about as illuminating as describing her son as a politician who likes golf."

The President described his mother as "single constant in my life."

There once was a toddler named Barry
whose father was drunken and scary.
His mom married twice
so she put him on ice.
Poor grandma, ‘twas all she could carry.

I thought his mother was just a “typical white person” who was also a communist.

Does this tell us anything about where Obama was born or who his REAL father was, or who his LEGAL father was at the time of his birth?

The Business Insider article is a puff piece based on an unusually fawning (even for them) puff piece in the NYT.

I imagine if someone actually read the Dunham biography with a critical eye, there may be some things of real interest there.

Personally, I wouldn't have the stomach for it.

Oh lad Barry went on a vacation in Hawaii,
On election eve to Hawaii he pulled a all nighty.
To see if old nanny passed away finally,
Her ashes in the ocean, and make sure no one was spying,
That his cert is safe in hiding.

To me it would be a lot like these biologists who study animals by carefully and thoroughly examining their dung.

Way back when I met her she was hanging around with a bunch of CIA folks, various sorts of other kinds of federal police, right wing Dutch Colonials and so on.

You should tell us who the Commies were ~ it's probably not too late eh.

No it doesn’t, but the Magazine sure had it in for Donald Trump!

who believed her son in particular had the potential to be great; who raised him to be, as he has put it jokingly, a combination of Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and Harry Belafonte;

Missed two out of three.

He may be intelligent, but he's hardly Eistein
Gandhi? Two words : Moonmar Gadaffy
Harry Belafonte? Well, he is a racist, commie loving, asshole.

What did we learn about Obama and his mother?

Well, Obama could have been named Target because of the number of people that had a shot at him.
His Mother's legs could have been issued a pilot's license because of all the time in the air they had.
We know the best part of Obama must have run down his mother's legs...

No need click:

1. She was a total badass
2. Obama learned to deal with racism in Indonesia
3. She had a large domestic staff in her house
4. She hated working at the U.S. Embassy
5. She probably gave birth to Obama’s half-sister without stethoscope, gloves, or gown
6. She refused to conform to Indonesian society
7. She may have discipline (sic) her son by spanking him
8. Obama remembers her strength but also wonders where he would have been without his grandparents
9. So did she give birth in Kenya? Trump thinks so

Another amazing fact:

She was so homely she had to ‘sneak-up-on-a-glass-of-water-to-drink-it’ !!!

THAT'S why she thumbed her nose at ‘tradition’ and went off with these loser guys, abroad.
