Maybe the reason Obama hid his homosexual lifestyle is not because it would hurt his political career… the big reason for that is that it might hurt his Kenyan people? Homosexuality is illegal in his home country. Punishable up to 14 years in prison. The gay lifestyle isn’t for everyone, y’all. Americans would welcome a gay president, I’m sure but his Kenyan people, though. He doesn’t want to hurt them by publicly coming out of the closet. Maybe this is why he have to keep it a secret? Now I get it!
