Ann Dunham and Barack Obama Jr.
In his speech to the nation's schoolchildren Tuesday, President Obama repeated the family narrative he presented in his autobiography "Dreams from My Father," despite documentary evidence that tells a different story.
"I get it. I know what it's like," Obama said in the televised speech. "My father left my family when I was 2 years old, and I was raised by a single mom who had to work and who struggled at times to pay the bills and wasn't always able to give us the things that other kids had."
Contrary to Obama's statement, however, his father did not abandon the family in Hawaii when he accepted an invitation to study at Harvard in 1962.
Instead, his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham Obama, abandoned his father, Barack Obama Sr., when she moved from Hawaii to Seattle where she was enrolled in extension courses beginning Aug. 19, 1961, only 15 days after Barack Obama Jr. was born, http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=106018 according to Dunham's grade transcript WND obtained from the University of Washington.
