Abercrombie witnessed the crumbling of Barack Obama Sr. during a trip to Africa in 1968. He and a mutual friend from Hawaii stayed with their old pal in Nairobi. It was clear to us how disappointed he was, Abercrombie recalls. He was drinking. There was a bitterness in him, an edge.
Years later, after Little Barry had become an Illinois state senator and had unsuccessfully challenged Rep. Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) for a congressional seat, Abercrombie telephoned Obama to let him know that he had been a friend of his fathers. Obama was grateful for the call, Abercrombie says, but left the impression that he didnt want to pursue it.
Though both now serve in Congress and Abercrombie is an ardent supporter of Obamas presidential campaign, they have never discussed his dad. Weve never explored it, not even a little bit, Abercrombie says. And that might have something to do with him.
Obama says he normally sees Abercrombie on Capitol Hill and the conversation is typically about politics and legislation. Its certainly not out of a sense of avoidance.
Whenever I want political clarity, I turn to the governor of Hawaii.
“All the evidence we have overwhelmingly indicates that Obama was indeed born in Hawaii and is constitutionally eligible for the presidency.”
Seems to me that statement is not as forceful as one could make i.e. all the evidence we have, what evidence would be my question. Second, using the term “indicates”, how about corroborates. No, this is a ruse, just like everything else about this phoney president we have.
