Pro Obama Biographer Admits Obama Family History Based On Myth
By: From the Trenches
Yet another Barack Obama biography has been
recently published. This time it was written by someone friendly to
Obama. David Maraniss, in his book, Barack Obama: The Story, sought to
chronicle the early years of young Obama and tell of things that molded
and shaped him into being the person he is today.
Maraniss diligently researched as much as he could about Obama’s
childhood, including the relationship between his parents. He looked up
records and interviewed as many people as possible that may have had
some knowledge of Barack Obama Sr and Ann Dunham, his father and mother.
But what Maraniss discovered was that the family history told by
Obama at the 2004 National Democratic Convention and again during the
2008 presidential campaign is more fiction than fact.
