"Let's face it, a mixed kid from Hawaii born to a single mom is not likely to become President of the United States. But in America it can happen because of education, because somebody gave me opportunity.
"You know, a little black girl from the South Side of Chicago, whose mom is a secretary and dad is a blue-collar workernot likely to become First Lady of the United States. But it happens because she got a great education, even though her folks didnt have a lot of money.
"It's the gateway of opportunity for middle-class families, for those who are willing to work hard to get into the middle class and stay there."
YouTube video of Obama's remarks.
Note by Kristinn: With this statement, Obama has blown up the story of his birth that he sold the public to get elected.
The Obama campaign also put the statement out on Twitter tonight:

Single in that the marriage was illegal (bigamy) or (as some suggest) never took place.
But a divorce WAS granted...
Guess obama will never have to worry about making one.
and my real father was...
I thought his parents were arried when he was born as one of the stories or lies goes.
Could it be he doesn’t know what the truth is? consumate liars and frauds are all hype and often get caught in lies..just like biden.
Obama’s grandmother was a wealthy bank VP who left him $500,000 in stock.
Cut him some slack. It’s hard enough for him to remember what his name is much left what his life story is.
"His father, Barack Obama, Sr., was a Luo from Nyangoma Kogelo, Kenya. The couple married in Wailuku on Maui on February 2, 1961, separated when Obama's mother moved with her newborn son to Seattle, Washington in late August 1961 to attend the University of Washington for one year, while Obama Sr. completed his undergraduate economics degree in Hawaii in June 1962 then left to attend graduate school at Harvard University on a scholarship. His parents divorced in March 1964.
Ann Dunham could not have been legally married to Barack Obama Sr. since he was already married to a woman in Kenya, so how does he have his name?
Maybe it’s a composite truth.
Yeah let's see those transcripts...
"because somebody gave me opportunity."
Who? Who helped you out so much? Inquiring minds would like to know.
Ugh! Grab your barf bags. I wish Obama would save us these dumb stories.
Thanks for this thread.
I think you just found your tagline. ;-)
All the lies are keeping harder to keep straight.
*keeping = getting
Jay Carney: “Clearly, the president was not speaking of himself, but rather was speaking of a hypothetical mixed-race child born to a single mother.
“That hypothetical child, as the president intimated, should just forget about becoming president because it ain’t likely.
“The president, on the other hand, was born into a loving family of a goat-herder father from Kenya and a young progressive woman whom we believe was unfairly denied contraceptives by the Catholic Church.”
” I wish Obama would save us these dumb stories.”
But then what would we talk about, laugh about?
