Barack Obama And Sarah Palin 'are Distant Cousins'

Has any of this been checked? Seems odd that a child would discover what many thousands of highly experienced researchers have not.

You were saying.

Nearly all US Presidents are descendant from the British and French Royal Families64

The books Burke's Peerage & Baronetage and Burke's Landed Gentry have, for 175 years, recorded the genealogies of the UK and Ireland's titled and landed families. Often referred to as 'the aristocracy bible', these are without comparison as a genealogical reference to the influential figures and families of Great Britain and Ireland.

Burke's publishing director, Harold Brooks-Baker says Bush's royal connections are startling. "[bush] is closely related to every European Monarch both on and off the throne," says Brooks-Baker. Some of the governor's royal kin include Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen Mother, Duchess Sarah "Fergy" Ferguson and even the late Princess Diana. His most prominent ancestor may be England's King Charles II, who shared the governor's vision of a strong military. Going back nearly 1000 years, Brooks-Baker points out both the Bush and Pierce families [barbara Bush's maiden name is Pierce] were high society. "Not one member of his family was working class, middle class, or even middle, middle class," he notes.

Gore's family members weren't exactly peasants. The vice president's family tree includes Charlemagne and three Holy Roman emperors. And a good fight wouldn't frighten the vice president's most famous ancestor, England's Edward I - best known today as the king who defeated, then executed Braveheart. Gore is running a bit behind Bush in the European royal count, his blood-line runs close to some American home-grown nobility, including Thomas Jefferson.

As for John Kerry, "the 60-year-old can trace his roots back to the first Massachusetts governor, John Winthrop, to every great family in Boston and to a host of royals in Europe. Kerry can almost certainly be traced back to King James I and to the bloodlines straight through the Windsor and Hanover families," Brooks-Baker said. "But both candidates have a remarkable number of royal connections and both are related to Queen Elizabeth."

What about Bill Cinton ? In an Associated Press article published in The Daily Oklahoman, October 28, 1996, Harold Brooks-Baker said: "Bill Clinton was born William Jefferson Blythe, but took his stepfather's name as a teenager. Clinton's ancestry can be traced back, on his mother's side, to King Henry III who ruled England from 1227 to 1272. He is descended from King Robert I of France.

Furthermore, he is related to every Scottish monarch to the current British royal family. Clinton's royal roots include several medieval monarchs and Simon de Montford, a statesman and soldier under King Henry III. Through de Montford, Clinton is related to every ancient aristocratic family in Britain today."

In the same article, the journalist revealed that "Bill Clinton's family goes back to William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison, making him related to Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. His kinship to Ford makes him 'near kin' to Richard Nixon and George Bush."

Small world, isn't it? And this seems to be a jealous guarded secret as over the past years, the President had all records of his family history, school records, medical history, etc. sealed.

If you think all these are mere coincidence see the charts below. And if you think it's just a probability game, then check your own genealogy and those of all the people you know. Do you have such great chance to be even far cousin with Bush, Nixon, Kerry, Clinton ?

I thought it was common knowledge that the Queen controlled America?

Wouldn't be very sensible to let them run it themselves now would it?
