People Remember the Young Obama

Mem­o­ries of Barack Oba­ma

Birthers claim that no one from Obama’s past has come for­ward say­ing they knew him. Where are the pic­tures? Where are the inter­views with his friends, his teach­ers? Why does no one remem­ber him grow­ing up? At col­lege? Where are his pub­li­ca­tions? Who was the best man at his wed­ding? It’s as if he burst on the scene with no past.

Like every­thing else Birther, this meme is eas­i­ly debunked. Click on the links below to see pic­tures, inter­views, offi­cial records, and much much more.
