I remember escorting him to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi, then known as Embakasi airport," she says. "He asked me to take care of our only child then, Malik Abongo, who was six years old. I was pregnant with our second child — Rita Auma." After arriving in the US, however, her husband was to fall in love with another woman — Ann Dunham (Barack’s mother — who he later married. But in keeping with the Luo customs, Obama Senior sought her consent to take another wife, which she granted. Keziah says she was happy to have a co-wife, and her husband kept her updated. He informed her when Barack Obama Junior was born. She says that despite her husband marrying another woman in the US, she still loved him.

can you say BIGAMIST....
this marriage was not legal int he united states was it?

out of his step mothers own mouth ....obama's dad married obama's mom while he was married in africa and got her pregnant.

and other African wife was pregnant too lol

not sure what to say..
OMG read this law....

English Common Law placed harsh penalties on an illegitimate child, denying the child inheritance and property rights. Modern law has given the nonmarital child more rights but still differentiates between the marital and nonmarital status. In addition, a rising level of out-of-wedlock births in the United States has drawn the attention of politicians and policy makers.

Common law
"dictated that if a man married a second time while still legally
married to his first wife, a child born of the bigamous marriage was

does this also mien ineligible for president?

i am no lawyer by no standards.
But these law's on this sound like he cant be a president..

Can a real legal nut tell me whats going on here?

Furthermore, if a man married a second time while still legally married to his first wife, a child born of the bigamous marriage was illegitimate.

I doubt it - mainly because the Mother was a U.S. Citizen; if I have my immigration laws correctly, as long as the child was born in the U.S. he's a natural born citizen. The fact that he was 'illegitimate' on the fathers side means nothing; how many people are Single Parents? A lot and their children are still citizens of their respective countries.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this thread is. Is your character evaluation of Obama's father supposed to also reflect upon the character of Obama himself? Regarding the eligibility for United States presidency, I have never heard of any requirement that a president be born in wedlock. Article Two of the Constitution details the requirements for the presidency; the above is not a stated requirement.

Edit to add: here is a link providing the eligibility guidelines for the U.S. presidency:

Sigh... I had really hoped rubbish threads like this would end after the election, but apparently we are going to be stuck with them for the next four years.

Even if this were true it would have no implications on Obama whatsoever, legally or otherwise.
In many ways I think it's a good thing that so many people will be scrutinizing Obamas actions, but I just really hope we can stick to the actual issues, such as his policies and his choices for cabinet etc.
