Skip to comments.Obama Visits a Nation That Knew Him as Barry
Posted on 11/09/2010 7:12:54 AM PST by thouworm
JAKARTA, Indonesia The two houses where he spent part of his boyhood stand pretty much the way they did when he went back to Hawaii four decades ago. The two schools he attended have grown larger but, in spirit, remain unchanged. Some of his old friends can still be found around the neighborhood.
Near one of his homes here, the same family still runs a wooden stall selling gado-gado, an Indonesian salad covered in peanut sauce. Agus Salam, who took over the business from his mother years ago, played soccer with the American boy everybody here called Barry.

I think I remember a tour of where he lived and they were not poor by any means. And daddy made his money in OIL!!!
New bio info in this article?
Dear Indonesia: Please accept this gift with our compliments. He’s yours to keep. No reciprocal gift is necessary. We’ve had enough.
The United States of America.
My threads get pulled every time I post pictures...so, I stay away from them when possible.
Seriously, Barry had a Tranny Nanny? And his nickname was “boy who runs like a duck” ROFLMAO
“His nanny was an openly gay man”
How progressive of Stanley and Lolo.
No wonder Barry sets off gaydar.
Is there a back story as to why they shipped lil Barry back to Toot at age 10 and kept Maya with them in Indonesia?
and, I suspect, as a “citizen”
The answer may be:
"Mr. Obama left a lasting impression because of his outgoing and sometimes rowdy personality.
Barry was so naughty that my father even scolded him one time, said Sonni Gondokusumo, 49, a former neighbor and classmate. "
The whole nation knew him even then. He always was and always will be.
And he was known as Barry when he was a little boy.
I think I saw a high school yearbook photo which identified him as “Barry Obama”.
I think this could be part of his birth certificate mystery, that his name is something other than Barack Obama on the birth certificate.
Why did he go all through high school known as Barry? Why do school records from Indonesia list him as “Barry Soetoro”(sp?) and not Obama? Is the name on his birth certificate Barry Dunham, using his mom’s last name?
He probably adopted the name of “Barack Obama” in homage to his African roots. But since records are sealed at his order, we may never know for sure.
One time, recalled the elder son, Slamet Januadi, now 52, Mr. Obama asked a group of boys whether they wanted to grow up to be president, a soldier or a businessman. A president would own nothing while a soldier would possess weapons and a businessmen would have money, the young Obama explained.
Mr. Januadi and his younger brother, both of whom later joined the Indonesian military, said they wanted to become soldiers. Another boy, a future banker, said he would become a businessman.
Then Barry said he would become president and order the soldier to guard him and the businessman to use his money to build him something, Mr. Januadi said. We told him, You cheated. You didnt give us those details.
But we all became what we said we would, he said.
More verification of when he lived there.
Who has the picture of him that was taken with is childhood schoolmate in Hawaii, in 1969?
FRED NERKS will probably post it when online later today.
Re: Mr. Obama lived here between 1967 and 1971.
No, he didn’t
New York Times:The two houses where he spent part of his ******boyhood******
If that line was done by Fox wonder what would the MSM do?
guess NYT can’t use the word childhood?.
Now I’m confused, is the article wrong or is the date of the picture inaccurate?
Or does anyone really know?
I want to see Obama part a tsunami.
My husband and I disagree on this issue - he still thinks Barry was born outside of the US, but my money is on him using the Indonesian connection to get foreign aid for College. I think he lied and claimed to be from Indonesia and he doesn’t want that info to get out. Possibly even used the legal adoption by Soetoro as proof of his indonesian citizenship.
The short answer is that nobody KNOWS anything about Obama, and until he releases his bona fides, we never will KNOW.
By the way, I don’t think Obama KNOWS the true story of his family’s events between 1960 and 1964.
The answer to your question is the article is clearly incorrect — as are all the other “biographies”.
Obama acknowledged the photo in his letter.
I feel like I'm living in the Twilight Zone, seriously.
Clearly, Obama confirms he was in Honolulu in 1969, contrary to ALL biographies and biographical profiles.
It never ceses to amaze me that none of these contradictions ever perks the curiosity of Obots.
Obama on Wednesday will deliver one of the most personal and potentially consequential speeches of his presidency, reflecting on his own years of upbringing in Indonesia and giving an update on Americas new beginning with Muslims that he promised last year in Cairo.
