Biographer admits: There was no Obama family

In all the talk about David Maraniss new book, Barack Obama: The Story, the chattering classes seem to have overlooked the most significant of Maraniss revelations, namely that the story on which Obama based his 2008 candidacy is received myth, not the truth.

My parents shared not only an improbable love, said Obama famously in his 2004 Democratic Convention keynote, they shared an abiding faith in the possibilities of this nation. This concept of multicultural romance shaped his persona and his campaigns.

At the 2008 Democratic Convention in Denver, Obama leaped into the story in the very first sentence. Four years ago, he began, I stood before you and told you my story of the brief union between a young man from Kenya and a young woman from Kansas who werent well-off or well-known, but shared a belief that in America, their son could achieve whatever he put his mind to.

As Maraniss concedes, these two young people shared very close to nothing. In the college life of Barack Obama in 1961 and 1962, writes Maraniss, as recounted by his friends and acquaintances in Honolulu, there was no Ann; there was no baby.

Although Maraniss talked to many of Obama Sr.s friends, none of the credible ones ever so much as saw him with Obamas mother, Ann Dunham.

One Obama friend, a Cambodian named Kiri Tith, knew the senior Obama very well. He had also met Ann through a different channel. But he had no idea, writes Maraniss, that Ann knew Obama, let alone got hapai (pregnant) by him, married him, and had a son with him.

Only Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie claims to have seen the pair together during the presumed courtship stage, but he is not close to credible.

Maybe Im the only one in the country, Abercrombie told the Los Angeles Times in December 2010, that could look you right in the eye right now and tell you, I was here when that baby was born. This was pure lie, no other word for it.

A few days later, Abercrombie clarified to Mark Niesse of the Associated Press that he didnt exactly see Obamas parents with their newborn son at the hospital, but that he remembers seeing Obama as a child with his parents at social events. Another lie.
