For all the political differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney, it’s important to remember there is more in humanity that unites than divides.
Consider what author David Maraniss discovered that Obama and Romney have in common: Polygamy in their family trees.
Romney’s family history is better known, given the publicity surrounding his membership in the Mormon church.
But Maraniss, whose biography of Obama is due out in June, writes in The Washington Post that “the line of polygamists in Obama’s family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo (pronounced LOO-oh) tribe.”
Tuesday Newsday it is and we are back to moving forward with matters of importance.
During last nights CNN AC 360 show, a segment appeared regarding the family history of Mitt Romney as ta result of the Twitter uproar caused by remarks made by D- Montana Gov.Brian Schweitzer, in an attempt to bring light to Mitt Romney’s fathers immigration history from Mexico in the form of what started as a polygamist commune in the 1800’s.
Without getting into a political or moral debate, and just bringing up the topic for thought andÂ discussion with this new piece of factualÂ historical data added, we will ask the question again and invite any and all feedback as was the case with the last two entries on this subjectÂ which did, for whatever reason, get people talking.
