I thought I heard tell that Obama’s daddy was a goat herder? Now I research and find out that he comes from a well known political family in Africa. Although I’ve made this post short and to the point I’ve inserted ALOT of links should any part of this post pique your interest. It’s ALL interesting reading.
Me wonders what else the media is withholding from us?
Obama’s mother Stanley Ann, PhD., initially taught English at the American embassy in Indonesia. Later, she would do work as an American anthropologist in Indonesia. She became a leader in microfinancing for women in Indonesia, well before the idea of giving women small loans became a major component of development. Read more here.
Obama’s maternal grandfather was a furniture salesman and grandmother a bank vice president. Read more here.
As I’m sure you know from my previous posts, BO’s cousin Raila Odinga (of the Luo tribe) is a Kenyan politician. On the last trip to Kenya, Obama helped his cousin campaign for President. Raila finished second in the 2007 Kenyan Presidential race by a few percentage points in a widely disputed election that Raila denounced as “rigged.” Raila Odinga is currently prime minister of Kenya.

The Odinga’s are a family of well known rich, elitist African politicians
Raila Odinga’s older brother Oburu Odinga, is the Assistant Minister in the Ministry of Finance. (notice Obama Sr. was finance minister at one time). Read more here.
Cousin Raila’s father was in politics also. Oginga Odinga (full name is Jaramogi Ajuma Oginga Odinga) entered politics in 1957 and by 1964 was vice president of Kenya. (BO’s uncle?) Read more here and here.
