Obama Claimed He Was 'Kenyan Royalty,' Recalls Classmate
Fox News ^ | 2012-10-09 | PBS Frontline

Posted on 10/09/2012 8:02:11 PM PDT by justlurking

PBS's 'FRONTLINE' interviewed former Barack Obama classmate, Kristen Caldwell. She grew up and attended Punahou School with "Barry" Obama. She recalls how as a young child, Obama alternatively told classmates he was an Indonesian prince or Kenyan royalty.

[...]

So yeah, I can picture him as this slightly -- "chubby" is too strong, but rounded, short little guy, Barry Obama. And he told us that his father was an Indonesian king and that he was a prince, and after he finished school he was going to go back, and he would be a ruler in Indonesia. And I absolutely believed him.

I understand that he told his fifth-grade class that he was Kenyan royalty, but I never heard that story until years later. My sister and I remember very clearly that he was an Indonesian prince and that he would be going back there. So there was some reference to where he had come from, and the understanding was his family was there.

Obama a “prince” , “royalty”, etc.?

How about a “Fairy Princess”?

Does a “Prima Donna” quality as royalty?

How about “OBOZO, the Crown Prince of the Circus”?

Africans are like feather-indians. Every tribe has a leader and all the leaders children are considered in Englsih terms to be princes and princessess.

After ROOTS every black in the country was told repeatedly that they were royalty.

We would be better off now if Mikheil Saakashvili was president of the united states instead of Obama.

He is more pro USA than Obama I think.

Actually, this is a sad story reminiscent of children who daydream of belonging somewhere when they don't.

I don't like him at all but if I were told a story like this about someone else, I'd still find it sad.

And he told us that his father was an Indonesian king and that he was a prince, and after he finished school he was going to go back, and he would be a ruler in Indonesia.

Indonesia...

Sounds about right...
It has a little ring to it...

Back in the 1980s, working in a very large, university hospital on the edge of a major city ghetto, we had more than a few babies named “Princess” or “Queen.” The general consensus of the staff was- you can say it, but it doesn’t make it so. Then they’d ask us how to spell the second part of the name they’d chosen that none of us had heard before. “Lady, let me do my job and keep your baby alive. Consult your ‘culture’ and get back to me on what you want on the crib card.”

She is the second classmate who has said this. The first was a guy from a few years ago. I don’t remember his name but bet it’s over at Beckwith’s Obama File.

Typical white granny’s bank boss was on the board of Punahou school, so that’s probably how he got the scholarship. The darling prince came to HI when he was 10 and O. Senior came that Christmas. Sr. gave a talk to the school. The school was big on Kenya so that was another brownie point in getting a scholarship. His teacher went to Kenya during the summers to teach and several of the board members made trips there and the school donated supplies. One of the board members, Kelly, is the CEO (or owner or both) of Outrigger Hotel there.
