Obama's Mama



So apparently, when he was young, Barack Obama's mama and papa took him to live outside the country. This fact, combined with Obama's worldly charm and sophistication, have lead to Republican attacks on his "non-Americanness". 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.

This is real good Shala. Was it for a magazine?

Your painting have a very high brow look to them. I can imagine all of of these paintings in more classy magazines like the New Yorker, the Walrus, Esquire or Vanity Fair.
