US President Barack Obama has turned 55 now. Rising to the top, he has weathered a number of storms. One of these was the video showing his mother’s nude pictures of old time. These videos were circulated to thousands of voters in the US to influence election results. However, voters chose Obama as the President for the second time. Following are the excerpts of the news published at that time.
The shocking – and totally unfounded – claims made in the DVD represent a new low in the election dirty tricks war today provoking fury among Democrats and likely to trigger outrage in the White House.
‘Dreams From My Real Father’, made by a right-wing film-maker who is a long-time critic of Obama, includes images of a woman it claims is the President’s mother Ann Dunham clad in leather gloves, boots and a corset posing seductively on a couch.
The film also alleges that Mr Obama’s real father is left wing poet poet and Communist party activist Frank Marshall Davis, and that Ms Dunham’s marriage was a ‘sham’ to cover this up.

The extraordinary claims are the latest twist in the debunked ‘birther’ conspiracy which has raised questions over Mr Obama’s past.
But they could have serious consequences as more than one million copies have been mailed to voters in Ohio, a key swing state where Mitt Romney is lagging in the polls.
Some 100,000 copies have also been sent to voters in Nevada and the same number to New Hampshire – with up to three million more still to come.
It has even won the support of Alabama’s Republican Party chairman Bill Armistead who has said: ‘That (the film) is absolutely frightening. I’ve seen it. I verified that it is factual, all of it. People can determine.’

But Democrat consultant Steve Murphy said today: ‘It’s about the lowest thing you can do to accuse, with no evidence, the opposition candidate’s mother of being a porn star.
‘There are two motives behind this – racism and money. It’s a cynical attempt to make some coin and exploit the views of the fringes of mainstream views.’
‘Dreams From My Real Father’ claims that the President’s family history is an elaborate lie.
The real story is that his mother’s marriage to Barack Obama Sr was a sham to cover up her affair with Mr Davis, who Mr Obama has referred to as his ‘mentor’.
Mr Davis supposedly photographed Ms Dunham whilst she was pregnant with Mr Obama and sold the photos to 1950s magazines with titles like ‘Bizarre Life’, ‘Exotique’, and ‘Secret Pleasures’
