Obama the Descendant of Slaves?

obama-and-marshmallow-cannon

On his mother’s side???

WASHINGTON — For genealogists, President Obama’s family tree is the gift that keeps on giving.

There was Dick Cheney, Warren Buffett and Sarah Palin. On Monday, genealogists added another notable figure to Obama’s unlikely list of relatives: John Punch, a Virginia slave who some historians consider the first African enslaved in the colonies.

The connection to Punch, an indentured servant forced into slavery in 1640, comes from Obama’s mother’s side of the family, said Joseph Shumway, a genealogist with Ancestry.com, the website that has been researching the president’s family tree for years.

In a not so rare bit of Fauxcahontas envy, with less than 100 days before the 2012 election, genealogists have “uncovered” a link between Obama and slavery. AP might have thought this nothingburger story might give the ‘Bamster a little more street cred, to have the “blood of slaves” flowing through his veins, but I don’t think there are that many people in this country that give a rat’s patoot whether Barry is 50% or 51% or 52% black.

Even if it were true, having an ancestor that far back on the family tree did nothing to shape his thinking in his formative years or beyond. Besides, it doesn’t matter who Obama is so much as what he has done, which is nothing helpful and much to harm the economy and prolong the recession. That’s why Obama is running on his “vision” for America, because he cannot run on his record.

And if you read this story all the way through, three paragraphs from the end, you are treated to this:

Obama’s connection to Punch is similarly inconclusive

Inconclusive, eh? Color me unimpressed.

But, the choicest irony of the story, and the one reason why Obama would be wisest not to incorporate this into his re-election narrative, is that Obama’s tenuous claim to the blood of slaves, comes through his “typical white grandmother”. Being two generations closer to her slave roots did nothing at all, according to Obama, to make her more sensitive to the plight of minorities. It might be entertaining to hear Obama try to make the case, though.

    What this latest bit of “legend” manufacturing tells me is that somewhere between Gitmo still open, gay marriage, and his failed economic and job creation policies, Obama is losing support among the base.

  • Jeff

    In a day and age where we live in a nation where we strive to prove that race doesn’t matter, we are now told look how much race matters since Obama now is a descendant of slaves. Now I guess everyone who felt better about themselves voting to elect a black president can now feel even better about themselves voting for a black president with “slave blood.” Boy, that record sucks pretty bad when this is what Obama and his crew want to highlight.

  • Gern Blanston

    Doesn’t this sort of thinng bug you lefties just a bit? I mean, really: digging up some supposed connection to slavery? THIS is important? Is THIS what will help win the election for Mr. Obama? Strange we didn’t har about this until inside 100 days to his second election.

    • Gern Blanston

      …or hear…

    • Onslaught1066

      Well, it all has to do with recent stories opining on the fact that Dumb-O seems to be taking the “Black Vote” for granted.

      In fact some black leaders are coming out and saying that just because they are black, it is unwise to just ‘deem’ their votes to have been cast for Dear Leader.

      But this close to the election Obummer is far to busy trying to wring every dollar he can from rich white folks to make the time to placate their worries that the “One” might not care for their plight.

      So, he hires ancestry.com to do up a genealogy chart showing he has slave blood and mutters something under his breath about “being down for the struggle”, and bob’s your uncle, blacks have to vote for “one of their own”.

  • Jay

    Greetings:

    Jeez, this kind of makes me wonder if President Obama was related to any of those Kenyan Mau-Maus.

    • awfulorv

      His supposed father, and grandfather, certainly were.

  • awfulorv

    They may very well be right on the slave issue. If you discount his being fathered by the drunken bum from Kenya, who bears no resemblance, whatsoever, to Barack and take a look at some to the other men in his mother’s life, like Malcom X.

  • banjo kid

    I figured he was descendant to the slave traders in Africa. Obama has no sympathy for slaves of any kind , look at his half brother he lives on a dollar a month while he lives on a few mill a month counting vacations. They must know more about him than any one , why are they not releasing all the goodies.?????????
