"President Obama's sister..." (Obama's Dad) 'James "Kimo" Rosen



Obama Da Dog, Obama's Dad and President
Obama's sister. My eyes are closed because I feel I am dreaming!
Notice the Obama head-band and T-shirt! ;D)

This  blog also appeared as an opinion article in the October 24, 2012 edition of the Kaua'i Garden Island News; "President Obama's sister."

President Obama's sister 
There was a Democratic rally on Kaua'i at Chiefess middle school in Puhi on 10-20-12. President Obama's sister was the keynote speaker, other prominent Democrats  present were  the legendary senior U.S. Senator Dan Inouye,  U.S. Congresswoman Mazie Hirono, Hawai'i Governor Neil Abercrombie and a host of local and state politicians.

I met president Obama's sister (Maya Soetoro Ng) she graciously talked story and posed for photos with my dog named Obama and myself.   She thought it was cute I named my dog Obama. Maya has high energy and is  a great ambassador not only for her brother but for the entire Democratic party. I felt like I was in the company of a rock star, her charisma and energy was the high point of the rally.

I started thinking, Maya is introduced as President Obama's sister, the local paper headlines President Obama's sister, the emails and social media inviting people to this event all called Maya, President Obama's sister. Speaking with attendees at the rally everyone called Maya, President Obama's sister. Why is it Maya is  always President Obama's sister? Is it her name is to hard to pronounce and remember (Maya Soetoro Ng)? After-all  most westerners don't know how to pronounce NG, I don't. Or is it we are so star struck with name recognition?

I have a sister, how would she like it if every time she want somewhere she was introduced as my sister, or how about if every-time I want somewhere I was addressed as my sister's brother?  How would  any of you like it?

I thought hard about this and when Maya left the auditorium where she spoke I said," great meeting you Maya,"  and she said  looking away from me and eyes clued on my dog, "nice meeting you Obama," and told me I am a great dad to my dog.


I guess there's nothing wrong with being known as Obama's dad, I now understand the concept of  being President Obama's sister, not that there's anything wrong with it.

Signed; (Obama's Dad) James "Kimo" Rosen

Nice to get Obama, the dog, involved in politics. Considering his name, it must be his destiny.

KimoRosen said...

Thanks Pete! Btw, I left early as did Maya, Maya was in a black car passenger seat with a driver, probably secret service and she shouts out the window, Bye Obama! That made my day!

Myron Rosenberg said...

via facebook of President Obamas sister;"That's pretty classy, Jim! Let's see, you were with a multi-term U.S. Senator, who, if you didn't know, was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, AND you were with the sister of the President...AND YOU WORE A T-SHIRT. Although, I have never been to Hawaii, I'll bet this was not good judgment"

KimoRosen said...

Myron, most local people wear t-shirts, look at the background photos guys all wear t-shirt, dress up is an aloha shirt, nobody wears white shirt and tie in Hawaii, and BTW, my shirt was worn on purpose because it had a photo of the president on it. Of course I know the story Of, Dan Inouye! did you know he was great friends with Ted Stevens, even though Stevens was a Republican? Your wrong Myron, it was good judgement, in Hawaii you do not want to out-dress your so called elder statesman, as in japan you don't act smarter than your boss even if yo are.

KimoRosen said...

p.s. Myron, this was a rally and most people wore t-shirts with their favorite candidates on them, that's the way rallies are most places, this wasn't a formal dinner party, a free 2 hour event to get democrats excited they even served free rice, chili and hot-dogs, not caviar and Alaska King crab and fillet Mignon...

Myron Rosenberg said...

via facebook photo;"You will note, the other two men, one of which is the celebrity, wore JACKETS over NOT-T-SHIRTS. I believe it was disrespectful. Regarding Stevens, as they say for a waiter who gives away more food than is proper, (to get a bigger tip,) it is called 'selling out the house'. Stevens, milked the U.S. Treasury for the benefit of Alaska, AND HIMSELF. I don't forgive him for being a unscrupulous American, even if he appeared to service his (RICH) constituents in Alaska. For ten years, I asked his office to meet him, if only to have him stop by my gallery on his walk to the Hilton for the Chamber luncheon. He never did, because "he was too busy." Murkowski and Young saw me in Washington on short notice. And Vice President Humphrey called me back the same day I called him..."

Myron Rosenberg said...

via facebook photo;"There is a delicate balance between serving your constituents and being responsible to the nation. Stevens and Young use the Treasury to buy votes in Alaska. And that is wrong."

Harmony Bentosino said...
