Family of Barack Obama
Michelle Obama’s speech and the argument over opportunity
The family of Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States of America, is made up of people of African American, English, Kenyan (Luo), and Irish heritage,[1][2] who are known through Obama’s writings and other reports. His immediate family is the First Family of the United States. The Obamas are the first First Family of African descent.
In her speech yesterday, Michelle Obama talked in personal terms about her own and President Obama’s modest upbringings. She discussed her own father’s struggles as a pump operator to put her through school and Obama’s grandmother and single mother, who suffered pay discrimination. She talked about how student loans enabled both Obamas to eventually enjoy lucrative careers.

“When it comes to rebuilding our economy, Barack is thinking about folks like my dad and like his grandmother,” Ms. Obama said.

This biographical detail has been widely interpreted as an effort to forge an emotional bond with working and middle class Americans — a reminder that the Obamas have experienced what they have, while the Romney’s haven’t.
Obama’s Grandmother in Crash
President Obama’s grandmother might need a new driver. Sarah Obama was on her way to her home in Western Kenya when her driver lost control and sent the vehicle rolling into a ditch. All five people in the car—including her bodyguards—were sent to the hospital but released with minor injuries. “God is with me, because if you could have seen the wreckage that we came out of safe, one would wonder,” said Obama. “You can see I was not injured save for this small scar on my right hand, and I am not even using a walking stick.”
