    education?
    Obama said yesterday he knew about student loans as he and Michelle had them!
    But that makes sense he could get into Harvard especially after Affirmative action helped out but I'm curious about his mom's international travels, her living expenses in foreign lands. How did she afford those things that most of us could NOT imagine doing!

    Who paid her bills?

    Now don't give me this web site as I've already agreed about Obama personally no problem!
    snopes.com: Where Did Obama's Money Come From?

    But how did his mom travel, live etc.???

    Jobs, husband, the usual, unless you can prove otherwise. Why the concern?

    Here's her work history..
    Dunham studied at the East–West Center and at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in Honolulu, where she attained a bachelor's in anthropology or mathematics[4] and master's and Ph.D. in anthropology.[5]
    Who paid for her education???

    Interested in craftsmanship, weaving and the role of women in cottage industries, Dunham's research focused on women's work on the island of Java and blacksmithing in Indonesia.
    Who paid for her research???

    To address the problem of poverty in rural villages, she created microcredit programs while working as a consultant for the United States Agency for International Development. Funded by TAXPAYERS!
    Dunham was also employed by the Ford Foundation in Jakarta and she consulted with the Asian Development Bank in Pakistan.
    "Who funded the Ford Foundation? Evil profits from evil corporations!
    Towards the latter part of her life, she worked with Bank Rakyat Indonesia, where she helped apply her research to the largest microfinance program in the world.
    She worked for evil profit making bank!

    Point is she was educating because her banker mom paid for her education!

    What's your point? What's evil about microfinance? I applaud her work.

    Obamas mother was secretly paid to travel to Kenya to give birth to Barack. She and the infant were quickly whisked back to the US to make it look like he was born here

    I think George Soros picked up the tab

    There should be a sub-forum for these kinds of threads called "Alternate Obama biographies."

    I found this interesting from snopes;

    "Likewise, the Obamas' financing of their house in Chicago was no mystery. The couple experienced a significant jump in income from 2000 onwards (largely from royalties on book sales), and they purchased their Chicago home in 2005, a year in which their combined income was $1.6 million:
    The Obamas' best financial year came in 2005, when their total combined income was $1.6 million. That included $1.2 million in author fees for Obama's best-selling books. Michelle Obama's salary that year [as vice president for community and external affairs at the University of Chicago Hospitals] was $316,962 plus another $45,000 from TreeHouse Foods [for whom she served a member of the board of directors]."

    Obama pretending he and Michelle are poor and the rich are bad is a bunch of bull. He is rich and obviously wants and likes to be rich.
