Did Obama Overlook His Mom?

For a long time, I was mad at Obama for minimizing his mother's influence in his life and for what seemed like the ultimate slap in the face, writing "Dreams From My Father," a book about the man who not only abandoned the family but betrayed his mother.

So why did Obama lionize the absent father instead of the mother who was in the kitchen making breakfast or sending him off to school or to his grandparents to help raise him?

Maybe His Father Not Being There Made Him A Better Person. Maybe It Made Him Think " Okay My Father Wasnt There For Me So Im Going To Be There For My Kids And Give Them The Life iNever Had"

It is all about colour, much like his entire existence. If his uni records were to be released it would become evident. That is why you will never see them.

He was enrolled as a foreign student on an Indonesian passport.

Hence the easy admission into Columbia and Harvard.
