Skip to comments.Dem Governor Bashes Romney for Polygamist Roots – Forgets About Obama’s Polygamist DAD
Posted on 04/20/2012 6:18:17 AM PDT by Hojczyk
On Thursday Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer decided to go after Romneys family history regarding polygamy stating Hispanics would not approve of such a history. So it is only fair to point out that President Obamas family has a history of polygamy and bigamy as well. Yet the majority of Hispanics voted for President Obama in 2008.
The Washington Post reported:
The line of polygamists in Obamas family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo (pronounced LOO-oh) tribe. His great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters. His grandfather, Hussein Onyango, had at least four wives, one of whom, Akumu, gave birth to the presidents father, Barack Obama before fleeing her abusive husband. Obama Sr. was already married when he left Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he married again. His American wife-to-be, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not yet 18 and unaware of his marital situation when she became pregnant with his namesake son in 1961.
It is also well known that Democrat Senator from New Mexico, Tom Udall, and his cousin, Senator Mark Udall (D) from Colorado, come from a long line of polygamists. But that was never an issue because they are Democrats. Mens Journal reported:
In the Udall family, politics stretches back generations. Marks and Toms great-grandfather, David King Udall, was a pioneer Arizonan and a Mormon polygamist who was sent to federal prison (on testimony of an ancestor of Mitt Romneys, family lore has it). He was pardoned by President Grover Cleveland, then tossed back in jail. This time, it was Barry Goldwaters grandfather who got him off the hook.
Its only ever an issue if the politician is Republican.

Sorry, nothing to see here, move along, we have “Cookiegate” to worry about today.
Schweitzer is a retarded ‘rat.
Sounds like Zer0 comes form a long line of dog-eating, polygamist Muslims.
...dog-eating, polygamist Muslims, (you forgot) communists.
Really Brian? One doesn't have to go but one generation into Obama's background to find some "irregularities" insofar as polygamy is concerned.
Besides Mit Romney never ate dog and wasn’t raised as a Muslim... so there.
Nothing is an “issus” if you’re a democrat. Or if your mother was a 17 year old “fluke”.
No one knows if Obama put his dog in a bag and beat him with sticks, but he could have.
Now, regarding polygamy, Obama and I share a few relatives who had DOZENS of marriages ~ and that's just in America, and on his Dunham side of the family!
Those Romneys can't hold a candle to real 'muricans when it comes to polygamy!
“””Montana (DEMOCRAT) Governor Brian Schweitzer decided to go after Romneys family history regarding polygamy stating Hispanics would not approve of such a history. So it is only fair to point out that President Obamas family has a history of polygamy and bigamy as well.”””
It seems as though the Democrats are working hard to get rid of Obama.
Age of consent was usually far lower than 21 ~ you are confounding “age of emancipation” with sex ~ a common misunderstanding.
Since 0bama’s father was already married to another woman in Kenya, he could not have legally married 0bama’s mother. The entire marriage was a fraud.
Our dog abuser is better than their dog eater.
Our polygamist is better than their polygamist.
SCOTUS- Boo Boo Panic.
So we see with this issue of polygamy, that it’s only an issue if it’s in the background of Republican candidates.
Even though it’s also in the background of a good Democrat named Barack Obama, his family background is not an issue.
I think that one could write an entire book about the various double standards which liberals live by.
No kidding! You and Obama share relatives? You are related?
Half of Obama’s relatives are white Americans ~ everybody knows that. Many of them with roots back into the earliest times! Then there are the Indians ~ yes, that far back!
Correction....an 18 year old fluke who loved to fluke black muslims for some reason.
And when ol’ Jer Lee married his cousin it was 12 in Mississippi!
