Little "Barry" Obama Was An Impish Student

Everyone now knows that Barack Obama didn't attend a radical Muslim school in Indonesia as a youth, but many will be surprised to find out that as a child Obama was impish, hyperactive -- and known as "Barry." According to this story (Impish Obama couldn't sit still, says school pal). "Former student and Ibu Karim's grandson, Bandung Winardijanto, remembers Obama as a "hyperactive junior who was daring, impish and could not stand still...We called him curly eyelashes because he had long and curly eyelashes...We knew him not by the name of Barack Obama but as Barry Soetoro...We use to tie him to the flagpole because he couldn't stand still."
