Responding to the letter from Sharon Benzel, I am attempting to introduce a little logical thinking.
After doing some searching on the Internet, I could not find the article she referenced. All I could find was a website that was definitely anti-Obama.
The booklet “Journeys in Black and White” was never published and was not written by Barack Obama, although it had some “biographical material” on him but also had info on other people. Sharon kept repeating in her letter “He stated ...” I could not determine that the information in the booklet was submitted by Obama. I came to the conclusion that this website was simply twisting the facts.
All that aside, let’s look at the facts and see what is most logical. The last time I checked, it is the mother who gives birth, not the father. There has been no evidence given that Obama’s mother ever set foot in Africa.
There is plenty of evidence that she gave birth in Hawaii on Aug. 4, 1961, to a boy whom she named Barack Obama. According to David Maraniss, who wrote a biography recently published, Obama’s mother left Hawaii when he was about a month old and took him to Seattle. At that time, even his father was not in Kenya,but still in Hawaii.
I do hope that people will base their vote on facts and logic not fear-based propaganda.
