We just asked if Obama cannot run on education, environment, or taxing the rich, while bring in Clinton as your top dog for the DNC big event is risky, what do you do? It’s AP to the rescue: “Obama could be descended from African slave” Paul Foy hit the internet last night with impeccable timing, no different than just a few days ago when the White House announced it’s support plan of Israel as Romney was arriving.
AP last night: “A team of genealogists has found evidence that President Barack Obama could be a descendent of an African slave – but not through the lineage of his black father, the most likely route researchers had followed and exhausted. The link, genealogists with Ancestry.com said Monday, is, in fact, through an examination of his white mother’s family history.”
It amounts to him possibly being the 11th great grandson of John Punch, a slave, who enjoyed associating with white women.
Maybe Carney will be asked about this today.
