Mr Obama needs a shoe repair ...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Look what i found in a Belgian magazine. I found an article about the president elect Obama.

One of the pictures shows him with his feet on his desk. So far so good, but ... a closer look

shows that his shoes are in a terrible condition.

So i wrote an email to his office and offered him a reconditioning of his shoes.

I received a standard answer, but you never know.

Look and enjoy...

(I tried to upload the picture but it didn't work, so i have put it in the gallery, perhaps someone can put it in the right place, thx)

So Mr Obama's great grand father (4 times removed) was a Shoe Maker.


President-elect of the United States Barack Obama's great-great-great

grandfather, Falmouth Kearney, emigrated from Moneygall to New York

City at the age of 19 in 1850 and eventually resettled in Tipton

County, Indiana. Kearney 's father had been the village shoemaker, then

a wealthy skilled trade.
