Obama says US and Ireland have ‘blood link’



Published: Mon, May 23, 2011 @ 10:12 a.m.

DUBLIN (AP) — President Barack Obama said today that the U.S. and Ireland share a “blood link” that extends beyond strategic interests or foreign policy into the hearts of the millions of Irish Americans who still see a homeland here. And though Obama didn’t mention it in brief comments alongside the Irish prime minister shortly after arriving in Dublin, that blood link extends to the president himself. Obama was to set out later in the day for Moneygall, the tiny village in County Offaly that is the improbable ancestral homeland of Obama’s great-great-great grandfather on his Kansas-born mother’s side.

Obama is just now finding his white roots . This may have something to do with Election 2012 and the white vote .

You two need to stop the hate. You act like the other presidents didn't do their fair share of traveling. The other white presidents didn't just spend 8 years in the white house. Evidently, the white voters saw something in him to elect him as their president. You gave Bush 8 years to f**k us black,white,yellow, man, woman, child, old and young. Bush didn't discriminate. That is why the world is in the condition it's in now because of HATERS like you two and all the other haters on here who have nothing to say but negative comments. You probably hate your ownself and your family members. Get a life!
