The Obama family tree

If you've ever spent time in or around high-crime, ghettos areas of a major urban area, you've no doubt seen the phenomenon of the "family reunion."

And to quote Hillary Clinton: You know what I'm talking about!

The matching t-shirts, the long baggy shorts, the faux sentiments of a cohesive family unit. I'm sure the sentiments are in the right place, but in execution it always comes off as a psychological exercise in over-compensation.

Well when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama, you'd be surprised that he's not forthcoming with his own dysfunctional family history.

ABC News tries to shake out the Obama family tree but it gets a little murky.

From reading the article, it seems that Obama's Dad had quite a checkered past. He never met a woman that he didn't knock up, it seems.

This just reminds me of all the hullabaloo surrounding Bill Clinton's "hero" single mother who fought every disadvantage to raise her two boys up "right." We all see how that turned out, and now we can see where Obama's big character flaw lies.

He's just a little kid, looking for a father figure, who never grew up. Just like Slick Willy.

I've read your blogpost about Obama's family tree and I thought maybe you'd like to come to know the practical side of genealogy as well. That is why I'd like to present our genealogy website (and the fastest-growing social network in Europe) http://www.itsourtree.com to you and recommend it for a review or an article on your site.

As life becomes faster and less reliable every day, the only remaining constant factor in life is the family. Our website supports this aspect by bringing the family closer together and helping the people to find relatives they didn't know about. In the past, it has been difficult to stay in contact with distant relatives due to the fact that they live far away or their contact data got lost.
Itsourtree.com's concept is simple: Due to our easy-to-use interface, you can create your own family tree with a few clicks completely free of charge. The added relatives can be invited automatically via email, look at the tree and participate in the building process. This way, a family network can be build up real quickly by means of the family tree.
We're constantly improving the service and keep expanding to more and more countries all over the world. Apart from the English site, the services are available in seven languages. That way, you can easily invite relatives from other countries and stay in contact with distant relatives from anywhere in the world. So far, there are 4 million families working on their family tree and about 15,000 are added every day. The service is and will always be completely free of any charge and might be funded by additional premium services in the future, but we're still thinking about that.

Maybe you're interested and want to write something about us. We'd appreciate a link to our site or our blog, too. We've got a daily blog (http://www.itsourtree.com/blog), too, and we will definitely link you in our blogposts. In case that you need any further information or want to ask any question, please feel free to write me to Christian.Richtscheid@itsourtree.com.

With kind regards,

Christian Richtscheid
