try play that angle?

"I grew up in a mud hut in a Ubangi village in Kenya and split rails for local farmers to make enough to go to Nairobi to read law."



What an angle!


ETA: He'd never pull off coming from a Pygmy village. He's too tall.

A guy that went to an exclusive school in Hawaii? Who went (supposedly) to Ivy League colleges? Who became part of the Chicago Machine? Who got a sweetheart deal on an expensive house? Who, along with his wife, pulled in 6 figure incomes for doing essentially nothing?

The media did a hell of a job burying his past but even they couldn't transform Obama into someone who grew up in poverty and clawed his way out of it. He may not have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth but enough people came along soon enough to put one there.

The spin doctors can do anything.

Put him in a stovepipe hat and give him a chinstrap beard and have him holding an axe.

"Barak Obama, the rail splitter from Nairobi!"

I can see it now!

IIRC his wife's salary was tripled after he was elected Senator for no other reason. They are the privileged people democrats and "social justice" seekers rail about.

The last 'log cabin' POTUS we had wiped his ass w/ the constitution, birthed big brother and killed states rights

I agree. Nicely done, but wrong none the less.

For what it is worth he did try to claim the Lincoln mantle for himself during his campaign. The train ride and all that.

You DO know about Log Cabin Republicans, don't you?

Besides, I am pretty sure there isn't any timber in Kenya worth actually splitting for fences.

And fences imply individual ownership of the land and the livestock. Pretty much the opposite of the Dream of His Father.

It was after a government(read Tax money) handout was given to the place the wookie worked, and they then tripled her salary

I understand she may share some of Mary Todd Lincoln's issues as well. I would hate to be the one on the spot answering that question. Perhaps that is why he tries to stay in shape. Escape and evade and all that.

Yes, and the position she had has been unfilled since she left it. It was a payoff, pure and simple.
