    Mark Obama Ndesandjo and the President,did not live together as one family with their father.the President was raised and brought up in Hawaii with his great grandparents,while Mark was raised by his wealthy American mother and Obama Sr....Mark has no right to say he is a lousy brother,they were not together as kids,for Christ's sakes.I think the President does not want to disrespect the dead.....and that is the difference between these two siblings..The President met his father one time only in Hawaii!!!!!!.I disagree with Mark Obama Ndesandjo.sell your book but leave the President,and respect your deceased father..

    Blame the previous generation, not President Obama for that. If the brothers are raised separately by adults who don't have the time or inclination to foster their relationship as brothers, it would be very rare for that to change when they become adults.
