Obama's Mama



So apparently, when he was young, Barack Obama's mama and papa took him to live outside the country.

Which to me is odd, seeing as how Obama went all over the world, and still came back to the States. I feel a guy like that must like it there, and perhaps wants to make it even better. Wouldn't that be preferable to someone who never left the country for extended periods? What if a President, newly in office, starts to travel, and realized, damn, I like it better in Spain? Or Iceland? Or India? And then abdicates? And then a country would lose its leader. And wouldn't that be a shame.
