What made Obama president? His absent father.

Here it is, the timeless formula for great leaders. Good or bad. Thomas Jefferson or Adolf Hitler. But you are not going to like it.

Most great figures in history were “mama’s boys” with an absent father. But here is the key. It was not good enough to be absent. The prisons of the world are filled with men who are “mama’s boys” with absent fathers. The father must also be seen as heroic or successful in the eyes of their son.

It is a fascinating study.

This video from 20o8 discusses the uncanny similarities between the presidential candidates, John McCain and Barack Obama and their fathers.

One thought on “What made Obama president? His absent father.

  1. Barack’s real father was Frank Marshall Davis. Check out the uncanny resemblance. This is the reason his “long form” birth certificate appeared to be a forgery (when closely examined). He didn’t want the world to know that he’s the progeny of a full-fledged Communist party member. See “Dreams from My Real Father” for further info. You will come away fully convinced.
