On the Supposed Weakness of the GOP Field | Main | Andrew Breitbart: Ace of Spades Has The Best Commenters

"Any Nation Will Do:" At Age 9, Young Barack Hussein Obama Dreamed Of Becoming Prime Minister of Indonesia

America, Ameerica, Indonesia, Indahnesia: Let's call the whole thing off.

So when you ask Obama if America is "exceptional," well, he may not agree to that, but he can tell you honestly: America was always on my short list.

And if you ask him if America's the greatest country on earth, well, not so much, but you can take solace in the fact that America was his safety.

Kind of like a big, useful version of Dartmouth.

It turns out Barack Obama was dreaming big right from an early age - at just nine-years-old he announced he was going to be the prime minister of Indonesia.

The episode from a new biography of the president's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, reveals the roots of a hunger for power which has driven Mr Obama's heady rise from an eccentric upbringing in Hawaii and Indonesia to the White House.

It will bring a wry smile to the faces of 'birthers', who are not satisfied he was born in the U.S.

...

His mother's ambition was clearly not lost on the future U.S. president. When his Indonesian stepfather asked him once what he wanted to be when he grew up, he was probably expecting him to say an airline pilot or an athlete.

'"Oh, prime minister', Barry answered,' wrote Ms Scott.

Incidentally, some Indonesian woman who knew him reported that Obama learned to laugh off mockery based on his mixed-race heritage:

Kay said: 'Our ambassador said this was where Barack learned to be cool. If you get mad and react, you lose. If you learn to laugh and take it without any reaction, you win.'

I note that just because Obama's forgetting that of late. Or perhaps never really had to exercise that skill since he was quite young, as he's gotten a lot of ass-kissing these past 20 years. He's getting truculent and petulant and other SAT words that have a bad connotation and not so much laughing and taking it without any reaction.
