Familiar face in the background?

March 10, 2009

Sarah Hussein Obama, grandmother to U.S. President-elect Senator Barack Obama (D-IL), smiles during a news conference at her home in Nyangoma Kogelo village, 257 miles west of Kenya’s capital Nairobi, November 5, 2008. REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya

This picture does not look real. Among the people in the background (fuzzy) is someone who looks like Obama, only his image is very large compared to the surrounding people. I also think he didn’t visit Kenya recently.


The photo is real. The “fuzzy” image in the background is a cardboard cutout of Barack Obama, as you can see more clearly in this other photo from the same event: GBU Editor

Ask her about obama being born in Kenya…..She’s ALREADY said that several times before, but the American people apparently need to hear it AGAIN!!!

Seriously, you raised issue with what is clearly a cut-out of Obama.

Stop wasting people’s time.
