104. Um, Obama is not from the ruling class.
Edited on Sun Nov-20-11 05:42 PM by mahina
He was raised by a single mother. We all know how luxe that is for almost all of us, himself included.
He lived with her in a small apartment with his grandparents and sister.
I go by that building every day.
Ruling class? seriously?

Here he is walking in the neighborhood, taking a short break outside, when he visited her when she was so ill, right before the election.

Here are supporters hanging out in the grandma's lobby

Chomsky has a lot right, and big picture he is right, but Obama was raised in very middle class ohana.

Here's an article with photos of the building, and him walking in the neighborhood. It is not a fancy neighborhood AT ALL. Trust me, I live in it.

That is just a fact.
