NPR, purveyor of all dry news, put a story up today about Sally H. Jacobs new book: a biography of Barack Obama Sr., entitled “The Other Barack: The Bold and Reckless Life of President Obama’s Father”.
And if there was one takeaway, (besides the fact that at 31 years of age, I still can’t get through an NPR article without wanting to sleep) it’d be that Barack Senior was a little bit of a dick.
Maybe it was the wife-and-child beatings. Maybe it was the fact that he ran through multiple wives, getting fired for drinking on the job. But this Obama guy sure sounded like an ass.
Congrats to his son for becoming so successful, despite his father.
