The indigenous Americans will be able to explain this because they pay attention to numbers but there are an awful lot of fours and eights and then twos associated with Barack Obama. Powerful numbers. Born on the fourth on the eighth month in 1961 which adds up to eight if you add the numbers to get 17 and then add the one and the seven. Then today in America it is the fourth of November which adds to two as the 11th month 2008. It's weird, isn't it, because he is the 44th president as well.
