President Obama's Roots and his Philosophy

One of the things that was largely overlooked during the campaign was President Obamas childhood outside of the mainland USA. He grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia and also spent time in African countries too. I thought at the time that then candidate Obama could use this time spent overseas to his advantage to say that he has a better understanding of how things work in other parts of the world. Dinesh D'Souza has up an interesting article on how his time overseas coupled with his father's philosophies influenced President Obama. It is an interesting read and brings up some ideas that are rarely talked about. Also, it is nice to have an article that mentions the President's time oversears that was not written by a "birther".
