Barack Obama Through his mother, related to Robert E. Lee
5th cousin 8 times removed to Barack Obama 44th U.S. President
Barack Obama in an article in USA Today, says this about Robert E. Lee: Â
I am seriously glad to be here tonight at the annual Alfalfa dinner. I know that many you are aware that this dinner began almost one hundred years ago as a way to celebrate the birthday of General Robert E. Lee. If he were here with us tonight, the general would be 202 years old. And very confused.
There’s an interesting article at CNN.com about the genealogy of our presidential hopefuls.
According to the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Sen. Barack Obama has family ties to: President George Bush, Winston Churchill, Lyndon Johnson, Harry Truman, Gerald Ford, artist Georgia O’Keefe, actor Brad Pitt, Robert E. Lee and two signers of the Declaration of Independence.
Jane Pitt, mother of actor Brad Pitt, has been scared into silence by the hate-filled, vulgar and even violent reaction to her public assertion that Barack Obama is “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”
