Question by Anonymous: Is Obama the first US president who was raised by a single mother?
His mother managed to put herself through college while being a single mom. She enrolled in college in 1960. She divorced Obama SR in 1964 and graduated from the U of hawaii in 1967. (7 years for a 4 yr degree - as a single mom for most of those 7 years).

This can be seen today in his support of increased Pell grants, and the American Opportunity Tax Credit. I am wondering if any other US presidents were raised by single mothers?

No, I think there are some whose fathers died at an early age, including Andrew Jackson. He might be the first son of a divorced single mother though.

    He was mostly raised by his grandparents…. And when his mother had him she was either remarried in Indonesia, or living with her parents…

    Don’t think she was ever raising Obama by herself.

    Clinton was raised by a single mother. There are many good people who are raised by single parents.

    Obama’s dishonesty and lack of character cannot be blamed on his mother.

    Obama has made the choice to be the filth he is. Please don’t blame his Mother. It is easy to see why his Father disowned him.

    I think her parents did some heavy lifting for their daughter….

    Being raised by a single mother is a hurdle to climb. That’s an understatement. I’m sure everyone that has actually experienced this understands what I’m saying. Anyone that hasn’t experienced this probably suspects I’m playing victim. It only speaks volumes about the way ignorance can influence thought.
