Melanie Nathan – 11-10-2010- With his trip to Indonesia, the book has opened even wider in reflecting on President Obama’s Childhood, to reveal that he had a male nanny growing up. As it happens the nanny was a gay man. At the same time Ex-President G.W. The Worst in History Bush, has started his closed book tour, tentatively named ” The Greatest Revisionist Tour Ever.”
The New York Times report on Wednesday added enlightenment about President Obama’s childhood in that Country. “His nanny was an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia’s relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher, longtime residents said. The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called Fantastic Dolls, who, like the many transvestites who remain fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape, entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball.”
The nanny later joined a group of transvestites ( as is acceptable terminology there) called Fantastic Dolls, who, like the many ‘transvestites’ who remain fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape, entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball.
The right wing assertion that Obama was deeply impacted and embraced Islamic fundamentalism during this period, is now a tossed ball flying off to a rainbow in the sky! His upbringing must have been fun indeed and not in the Islamic sense of the word. His mom changed his name to Barry Soetero, in a Country influenced by Islam, and that certainly was no way to integrate an American little boy, especially when he had the option to use his real name, Barack Obama.
So because our President lived a global life – does not mean he was influenced by its offerings whether conservative or liberal aspects. Not to confuse the two. Even while the anti-Obamaists scream “he is a muslim,” most of us thought he would be more liberal than he has proved to be.
However it would seem that what nanny had to offer certainly did not help the President to think of gay as anything more than .. perhaps… effeminate fun – with a second class place in society. Perhaps his mindset placed nanny’s servile standing in accord with our American second class citizenry, which has been acknowledged by this President but yet to be changed.
When we look at childhood factors and how they can influence our Presidents, I can think of another example; one that reared its ugly head this week. President Bush (GW) mentioned an incident in his new Book; that he relates specifically on the Matt Lauer Interview (MSNBC) – his mother gave him her miscarried fetus, in a bottle, when he was a young teen. He then took her and the bottle to the hospital He relates that this incident is what influenced his pro-life stance.
So much for child hood influences:
Bush delivered 100,000 innocent Iraqi deaths and
Obama has not yet delivered EQUALITY!
