At the recent Democratic National Convention, Mrs. POS described her POS husband as having grown up in poverty: “Obama and I were both raised by families who didn’t have much in the way of money or material possessions.”
That’s a lie.
It is a lie repeated by the POS in his books, on the speech-making circuit and in countless media interviews. By his account, he grew up in a broken home with a single mom, struggled for years as a child in an impoverished Third World country and then was raised by his grandparents in difficult circumstances.
The truth is Barry Soetoro Barack Hussein Steven Dunham Obama grew up in privilege.
B.S. Obama was born to a maternal grandmother (Madelyn Dunham) who was the vice president of a bank in Honolulu. From ages 6 to 10, B.S. Obama lived in the home of his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, in an exclusive section of Jakarta, Indonesia. The family was so well off that they hired a gay transvestite nanny to look after B.S. Obama.
Then, at age 10, mommy sent B.S. Obama back to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents who sent him to the costly elite private Punahou School and, after graduation from high school, to the private Occidental College in Southern California. Today, tuition for a full-time student at Occidental College is $43,490 per year, which doesn’t include room-and-board and the costs of books and supplies.
After two years at Occidental, B.S. Obama transferred to another expensive private university, Columbia University, where no student or faculty can remember ever having seen him in the two years he supposedly spent there. After he graduated from Columbia, B.S. Obama went to yet another expensive university for his law school — Harvard University.
Mrs. POS’s portrait of her husband as coming from poverty is just one of the many lies about the POS, as you’ll see in the video below. The source used by video is an extensive exposé, “The Obama You Don’t Know,” recently published in the Washington Examiner.
